    Default a501 rooting (to use external hard drive)

    I am interested in rooting my a501 so that I can use my external hard drive for watching movies and listening to music. The research I have done so far seems to show that I will have to downgrade to 3.0.1 (i think) in order to root. Then use Drive Mount to mount my external drive. Is this correct? I want to get my steps planned out before I start, so I am not flying by the seat of my pants.

    Or, are there any A501 roms that would be preferable to flash after rooting instead of running stock 3.0.1?

    Since you have no replies:

    I don't know but I would look & check out XDA-Forums as well

    Hope that may help
