Root (rooted)

When a phone is Rooted (meaning the user has access to the lowest levels of the device’s OS) the device is able to be modified in ways that the device’s manufacturer didn’t intend, such as running applications and services an un-rooted phone would not be able to run. Usually Root is used in terms of Android based technology in mobile, while iOS devices achieve similar results though Jailbreaking.
Ex: A user may root their phone to be able to change the OS running on the device.
