    Why Root my Xoom HC3.2 WIFI?

    I understand rooting and that I can 'do' extra things after rooting, but really, what is there to do after rooting on xoom other than simply messing around with the os, I know on phones there are some aps that won't run without rooting, give me some ideas for why I should root my xoom hc 3.2 wifi.

    Regards,

    I did it for better performance, a faster system, and full read and write support on SD card. I love the themes that the community comes up with. The little changes are nice; different icons, colors, and boot animations.

    You paid money for the xoom and you own it so you should be able to change what you want.


    Xoom: Unlocked, Rooted, Overclocked at 1.5, and on Tiamat 2.1.0 Tachi

    Kyocera Echo: Waiting for 2.3 fix.
    Source Code Released!!

    The same thing goes for tabs like the phones. Some apps need root to run. I like to make my own boot animations that needs root. Running a better kernel with full SD card support not like the read only on 3.2. Also the speed on things I got mine running at 1.7g much faster than the 1g stock.

    The Hammerhead ROM for 3.2 is the most current. It includes the "Tachi" 2.1 kernel. You can also load just the kernel.
