    Got a Xoom wifi...root?

    Got my xoom about a month ago. I have a rooted Bionic. Is there really anything super beneficial to rooting the xoom? I don't ROM. What could I do with the tablet root?

    So really not too much benefit on the wifi version if I'm not into ROMing. The tether would come from my phone and not my xoom.

    flashing a rom and rooting is the only way i tried stock and stock rooted its a no go if you want your tablet to respond more like a real computer.

    may i ask why you dont want to flash a rom?

    Like what? I have no problem rooting, just not sold on the necessity for the Xoom. I guess I'm looking for the reason. Can I make it faster while browsing, emailing, etc.?

    Yep. You can also get better battery life on top of performance. Then there's adding things like ad blocking or changing the font. Removing loggers that are on your xoom as well.

    It's just a personal preference. We get members here that want to root the minute they get their Xoom and soon are back wanting to know how to unroot. I've rooted every phone and tablet I've had since the G1 back in late 2008, it's just something I do. I like to OC the kernel and customize my devices.
