I am interested in rooting my a501 so that I can use my external hard drive for watching movies and listening to music. The research I have done so far seems to show that I will have to downgrade to 3.0.1 (i think) in order to root. Then use Drive Mount to mount my external drive. Is this correct? I want to get my steps planned out before I start, so I am not flying by the seat of my pants. Or, are there any A501 roms that would be preferable to flash after rooting instead of running stock 3.0.1?
