    Smile Hi everyone!

    Hey got my wifi xoom a few days ago and google keeps sending me here so I figured I'd join

    Two questions:
    Anyone have advice on wether or not I should root my xoom? Does rooting permanently change to boot or can I unroot without a trace?
    Right now I only see adblocking as the main benefit. Does overclocking help anything much? Isn't overclocking bad for the processor in the long run?

    Also what browser do you think is best. I'm so torn since I just switched from chrome to FF 4 on my pc but so far firefox on the xoom is so ugly... great communication with FF on my pc though.
    I love the default browser's integration with honeycomb... Haven't used dolphin enough yet to decide... give me your guys's thoughts


    thanks

    Welcome. Yes,if you root then you can return it back to stock using the stock images. If you decide to root, I recommend the adb manual way. The one click has caused a few problems. Head over to the development area for more help and check out our guides in the RS guides section
