Morotola Atrix 4G is a great device, packed with power but the out of the box Android has limitations set by the carrier that is why we are looking ways to ROOT it! Rooting is the process of gaining admin rights to the device. Think of this us a computer with guest account, you need to install something but you can’t since you are just a guest user. By having root access you can remove bloatware, install back up apps and have a fully customized Android device.
