Rooting is defined as a process done mostly by Mobile and Tablet PC users using Android Operating System to attain certain privileges over their device. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings. You could run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user by Rooting.
