Sometimes it can be tricky to find information on a subject like this that is reliable. Well, the Transformer range of tablets has now been around long enough for a good, reliable body of opinion to be available for you to consider.
If you are new to android & have a shiny, new tf300 then you *may* be considering "rooting". Or you may be asking "what is rooting?" That last question is straightforward. Rooting simply means getting full administrative access to all the files, folders & content of an android device thereby gaining total control of your device. But, do you need to? Do you have to? Or are you better off "leaving well alone"
This thread will try to answer these sort of questions...
Firstly, let me quote a senior member of the forum moderating team & provide a link to a thread which you really must read if you are interested in this subject...
Another reason why folks want to root is to use custom ROMs. Some users are never happier than when they have a custom ROM - especially if it is overclocked & they have a great time tweaking & experimenting & generally enjoying a harmless hobby. Good for them
Should *you* do this too? Well, that choice is down to you, but if you do, remember that you have at least the potential to "brick", ie effectively ruin, your new device. So be sure you know what you are doing first You might also want to consider the thoughts in this thread which I started prior to becoming a moderator on this forum. You don't have to agree with the thoughts, but I feel they are valid & worthy of consideration http://www.transformerforums.com/for...stom-roms.html
Over to you... It is your contributions to this thread that will make it an invaluable resource for other users.
