    Rooting vs. jailbreaking

    As far as I understood, rooting is for Android smartphones what jailbreaking is for iPhones... or something pretty similar... I haven't rooted any of my phones, and I don't really know too much about rooting.

    Do you, by any chance, know why it is called differently? If anyone is an expert in this, please give me some details.

    The concept is the same. Jailbreaking is simply gaining superuser access, as is rooting. I'm planning to have a rooting guide run down in the next week or so that will cover your questions Alb. I'll post a link as soon as i get it up.
