What is 'rooting' a device? I have read a lot of posts about rooting the device and it appears it is a way to gain 'administrator rights' on the device as on a pc. Could someone help me with this? Also, I am still trying to find out what android version is on the Pan Novel model that I have. I tried to download an android utility (.apk file) that would possibly have provided the info but the download failed on the novel. I really need to know what android operating system is on the novel before I try to install any .apk applications anyway.
