Defining technical "rooting" terms
Ok, the vid said to be brief. I admit I am a noob, but you have to start somewhere...
To start I have found exactly what I was looking for, a tutorial on how to root my Wildfire S (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1195275
), my problem is that it is chock full of terms that I really have no definition for. And google doesn't really help. "bootloader", "XTC-Clip", "S-On", "S-Off", this last one seems very important since it's the first step, but I just don't know what it means.
I understand many of these things are probably programs that I need to install, but I'm not sure if they are installed from the Android marketplace and put onto my phone, or if they are installed to my desktop and then used from there.
