    Question rooting newbie

    Okay I barely know what rooting is! I know it gives you admin rights to your phone, etc., but as far as how to do it, what is the purpose of having the admin rights to your phone gives you, etc, I have no clue. I started looking into rooting after tmobile did an o/s upgrade to my phone a mytouch 3g and I didn't like what it did to the phone, they walked me through a system restore or a factory reset but still not happy with how my phone acts, it is slow in responding to my using the onscreen keyboard, it freezes a lot, my one and only paid app loses info all the time, and even when I do what this app company has said to do to recover the info it's just not happening...so can someone gently explain to me how or tell me where I can find beginning info on rooting my tmobile 3g phone? I looked into the subform for the 3g but there are no posts there! thanks!

    The MyTouch is made by HTC, so to root the MyTouch you need to run a program called unrevoked. Make sure you get the latest version as earlier versions might not work or may cause issues.

    The main purpose of rooting a phone is so that you can replace the stock operating system with a custom rom.
