    Question Why root? Why ADW?

    Hey guys, I just got my Xoom. I've had a rooted Nook Color running CM7 and ADWLauncher Ex for a while now. Both rooting and ADW were necessary to turn the Nook into a great 7" tablet. Now that I have my Xoom I don't really see why I would want these modifications. Honeycomb and it's stock launcher works so much better right out of the box than 2.x.

    I do love customizing and modding my gadgets, but I just don't know if it's worth the effort for me on the Xoom. Honeycomb is already so customizable I'm not sure what benefit modding and using a different launcher would bring.

    So I'm asking you folks, why should I mod?

    It's just personal preference. I haven't had a stock android device since March 2009, and I've had 4 phones and the Xoom. As fas as I'm concerned ADW EX is leaps and bounds better than the stock launcher, that being said some members are having problems with ADW EX where as it doesn't skip a beat on my Xoom.

    I'm stock Xoom with ADW and really enjoy the features over honeycomb. Never had one problem
