    Default Rooting a Tab Pro 10.1

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of rooting my Tab Pro? I have seen that if my device is rooted, there are certain things I can get to work like getting a mouse to work in certain games. This would be a good thing for me as I have a controller that can function as a mouse so maybe then I can actually get the thing to work in a game or two. But what functions and/or abilities will I loose if I root the thing?

    It's an older article, but still pretty accurate.

    OTA updates. If you try installing one, at best it will fail. It can possibly brick your device.
