    Basically a rooted phone allows installation of android applications hacked or unhooked to be installed on any phone via a sd card or micro sd card the reason you have to root a phone is because most phone manufactures disable this feature to force customers to purchase apps via the play store which is basically creating a monopoly which is actually illegal the worst is HTC because they rig certain hidden routines inside there apps on there device and even if you tell the app not to use wireless or use your data plan it will auto turn all those features back on and still dial home
