    Default Root the Tab Pro 10.1?

    I've had my Tab Pro for a couple of weeks now, and I've come to the conclusion that the Magazine UX is pretty useless (for me at least).
    Of all the samsung apps that come included, I think the keyboard is the only one that's worth it.
    So, I was wondering what peoples thoughts on rooting the tablet were?
    I just hate that I can't delete most of the samsung apps I don't want, and that touchwiz is slowing me down...

    Should I do it?
    Just trying to get some feedback from forum members on it.
    I haven't rooted anything before, but I am sure its not too bad to navigate through.
    Any experiences or tips to share?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Default Re: Root the Tab Pro 10.1?

    Reading the XDA TabPro forum it seems that people that do not like the Magazine UI do some or all of the following:
    - Install Nova Launcher and use it
    - Root and use Titanium Backup to freeze the Samsung apps they don't like (safe route)
    - Root and manually remove the apps considered bloat with TiBu or a file manager that is give /system RW permissions
    - Root and install CM11 ROM (currently only for TabPro 8.4)

    Also the CM and TWRP recovery(s) are only working with the TabPro 8.4 but all indications are its only a matter of time before the whole TabPro series is supported.
