Rooting a phone has many advantages, to list a few, you'll be able to run apps that require access to system files, change the default bootscreen, tweak system settings, explore the system files and much more.

This method of rooting, which i've listed, involves installing a custom rom(CyanogenMod) via ClockWorkMod (CWM) recovery. So basically you'll lose the Stock Rom and also lose the warranty of your device.  But in return you'll get rooted phone and Android Gingerbread os.

*Before beginning see that you know how to boot into Cwm Recovery, on your stock rom. If you don't have any idea then see this post.
