You won't regret rooting it. It made a world of difference on mine.

Thanks! Glad you are enjoying your tablet the way it should have been shipped from viewsonic in the first place.

I agree! That's a step by step which included mini steps too! Solid is very thorough.

already ordered a screen protector and skin from Skinomi

So far I love the tab.. VEGAn runs super fast, market is working fine. The only drawbacks I see right now are the viewing angles with the screen and the weight. Weight isnt so bad, but you can really feel the heft when your holding it in awkward positions.

Now I need to move on to rooting my Incredible so I can have a wifi hotspot. After playing on the tablet for a while the Incredible feels so tiny in my hands lol

I look forward to really digging into what this tablet can do..plus I have a hell of alot of screen real estate that I have to customize now!

this is a must, having free 3g access if one of the biggest drawing points on the g-tab IMO. also, i know what you mean about your incredible feeling tiny. after using my tab for awhile, picking up my droid makes me feel like some kind of giant, lol. this is especially true since i am running ADW EX, similiar wallpapers, and nearly the same icon layout on both.
