Root

Root is an availibility you can get on Android if you don't care about losing warranty on your device. Rooting allows you to unlock the bootloader and put on files that shouldn't be used. Files such as .img's or even .zips's. Once you unlock the bootloader, you can flash an .img file recovery, and then have the availability of changing to a custom rom, or flashing mods and morphs on your device, through a .zip file.

Me, Myself, and I

I bought my first Android phone in 2009. Since then I have loved the software and what you are capable of doing with it. My second Android was the Motorola Droid, I then Upgraded to the HTC EVO 4G, then the HTC EVO 3D (first phone to have two 3D camera's on a phone. I then continued my love for the EVO line and bought the EVO 4G LTE. Samsung then dropped the S3 line and I had to buy one. I ended up buying it because the specs and capabilities were greater than the EVO 4G LTE. I am currently happy user of the Galaxy S3 (rooted).
