The Galaxy Admire smartphone that is made available for MetroPCS subscribers is now rooted. The difference is you now have no restrictions whatsoever with regards to the number of applications that you can install. A lot of people out there think that root access has something to do with custom ROMs, but it really doesn’t apart from the fact that some custom ROMs can come with root access and some root applications can help you install custom ROMs. But everything else and everything that’s directly related to root access is to do with applications. There are some root applications available out there to install that need to be able to have access to the full system which can only be done when it gets installed from a user account that has the full administrative permissions assigned do it. And that’s what you are doing when you root your device: the user account that you use when you turn it on now has full administrative permissions which allow for all apps to run. Just be sure you don’t install malware though. It wasn’t a big issue to have malware installed on your device before because they couldn’t move out of their unique app sandboxes. However, now with root access, it makes it much easier for apps to move out of their fenced-off areas and into other apps yards so to speak. That can spell trouble if malware jumps over to your banking apps or anything alike.
