What is Rooting?

Rooting an android device means achieving superuser rights, so you can modify your android device software. By rooting your device you gain ability to install custom firmware (ROM's), plugins, increase battery life, and ability to install software that require super user rights.In simple terms Administrator rights. The term Rooting is equivalent to jail-breaking if it comes to iPhone.
It comes from:
In Unix/Linux the term root is used to describe a user who has all the rights or permission to change or modify all the files and programs or any software code of that particular device Operating system. This is called "superuser". but when you purchase a new phone your phone is locked by manufacturer and it is provided only with limited rights means guest privilege. It is right because every one using the phone is not an expert and he/she may damage his/her phone if unknowingly made some changes where it is not required and damage it beyond repair. On the other it helps manufacturer to support their device and provide update. But for a tech expert only having guest privilege is not sufficient because lots of useful features are locked.
