    In simple words it means you have unlocked your Android. Rooting your Android phone enables you to use the super user, or root, permissions of the Linux-based operating system (OS). This gives you and apps that take advantage of the root permissions more control over the Android operating system and the device. Rooting can be entertaining for techies, but there are also plenty of practical benefits.
    Unlike jail breaking (equivalent to rooting) an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, you can search for and download apps that require rooting directly from the official Android Market. The official market is generally more secure and contains less malware than some other third-party markets and other websites. In contrast, Apple doesn’t allow apps that require jail breaking to be listed in the App Store. I rooted my Android to install custom themes, increase performance, and the ability to install software and custom ROMs to make my Android look different and to try different application which is not available in Google Play. You can search in this forum to know more about rooting. I have read something about rooting in this forum but I forgot the thread. It gives you more info.
