I wanna root my device. Now i am on Build Number: 6.1.1.B.1.10. I have some Question about rooting?
1) Do i need to unlock Bootloader for rooting my device?
2) Is rooting is risky for my device?
3) What is the main advantage of rooting?

2) depends on what you do. Don't try to mess up with system files, unless you know exactly what you're doing. Be aware of apps you give root access.
3) You can overcome the disadvantages of stock rom.
These are the things I did with my rooted phone:
you can install CWM recovery and install other roms easily.
Or you can use many MODS which replace the preinstalled system apps and give better funtionality.

it's good because you can unroot the device never letting anyone that you have rooted the device(can use your warranty without problems). If you unlock bootloader, you may void warranty.

The method I suugested above worked for me without problems. you don't need to do any thing special unless your device is not being detected.
