Root your PhoneProbably the top three questions on your mind when it comes to your Android phone are the following:

  1. What is "rooting?"
  2. Why would I want to root my phone?
  3. And now that I've decided to do it, how do I root my phone?

It's a little scary, we know. But we've got you covered.

First and foremost is our Rooting page, conveniently parked at There you'll find the basic ins and outs of rooting as well as links to get you started.

Then there's our "Rooting: Is it for me?" Q&A. If you read nothing else, read this.

Your next stop should be the Android Central Forums. Rooting is a little different for each phone, so you'll want to read up on exactly what you need to do.

That's it. It's not that bad, really, and you should definitely take a look. And apologies to our Aussie friends! ;)
