Well what do you want to do? You can do a range of things like overclocking, get rid of bloatware, flash a rom?

Just what i am confused with is what is so great about it. I came from jailbreaking my ipod and that was pretty easy to understand what you were able to do with the jailbreak. I just hear such great things about rooting but once I rooted I just don't know what to do. If that makes any sense.

Forgive the negative post here but, I can't seem to get my head around the fact that you have rooted you phone, potentially voiding your warranty and you have no idea why you've done it???  HUH? wouldn't it have made more sense to research the benefits and pit-falls of rooting BEFORE-HAND?

I can't speak for other users but for me rooting allows me to install apps that need access to the system files which is normally not accessible if the device is unrooted.

I can tweak or modify system files so they can do what I want. etc.

I agree rooting for rooting sake would leave an unaware user boggled. I would reccomend as we to research a little more about the benefits of rooting.

I also concede this is why your asking in some sort of research attempt, but without understanding with what you specifically use your device for its difficult to give you a solid answer.

A few benefits I suppose that you can quickly be able to see are:

The ability to free your device of specific bloatware that comes with the stock carrier specific device. (There are threads on many websites to explain which application are safe to remove). This allows your device to have more space for other purposes.

Applications in Market specifically for rooted users that allow your device to be customized, backed up, and enables features otherwise not included such as hot spot.

These are two of many simple ways to start enjoying your device. As far as the last user negative thoughts, don't worry. Learning is the battle and you've already started that. We are here for ya. Enjoy your phone.

Holla!

Please don't take it too personal, I just thought it would be better to research first, which you say you had, but still came across to me as though you had no idea what you wanted to do.

Anyway, if there's anything specific that you need help with feel free to ask, at the end of the day we're all here to learn and help each other.

For me rooting has always been around giving functionality to the phone that is missing.

Currently I would say that most S3 users really do not need to root, as Roms can be flashed via Odin if required. Rooting is really about giving yourself alternative backup options that do not need the internet and it is about getting access to areas of your phone that are locked down. Ratty is correct that you really need to know why you want to do this and what you are doing because these areas are locked down to protect you. If you do something incorrect in these areas it can result in you getting a very unstable phone or even bricking it.

A prime example is the mention of getting rid of bloatware - yes it is correct you can, but some of that bloatware is essential as it might be of no use to you, however it might be linked to other apps and thus cause an issue if disabled/uninstalled. An example of this (not sure if this is still the case) is that GTalk was vital to Play Shop - if you disabled GTalk the Play Shop wouldn't work. Not sure if Android has unlinked this in ICS but one would hope so. You can normally find a list of those bloatware apps you can safely uninstall.
