    Any other advantages?

    I have heard it said that rooting basically lets you be in control of your phone; sort of like gives admin rights. I was just wondering if there any more advantages apart from this?

    Nope, I think that's the main advantage. At least, I can't think of any others! The whole point of rooting is to be able to fiddle with stuff you wouldn't normally be able to fiddle with, so...

    What does that exactly mean though? What 'admin rights' are available if you root your phone? I guess I've never really understood what that is supposed to mean.

    Well, there are certain software limitations imposed by carriers, and rooting allows people to have complete control of the phone. It also allows users to flash custom ROMs and themes.

    I've been meaning to root my Coby Kyros becuase is the only way I can google play, this for sure is an advantage for sure. the problem is that I have no idea how to do it. If there's just a tutorial for begineers I probably would have done it.

    There are actually some guides for beginners that could help you, but if you still can't figure it out don't go for it blindly. You should probably ask a friend that knows more about it to do it for you. Or you could always try taking it to a specialised electronics store.
