    By not allowing us to root our new tablet, you are pushing away potential future buyers, as anyone who currently was stupid enough to go and buy your tablet and find out it's locked against rooting, will think long and hard before making that mistake again!
    Look at companies like Asus, and Samsung - market leaders - they allow the masses to root their tablets, while warning them against possible warranty loss, thus creating a cohesive loyal community around their products! My phone is a samsung phone, and I flashed it countless times. One of those times, I even took it to a service station where they flashed it for me, free of charge to stock ROM. That's good service! And if they didn't, I still be okay with it, since I understand the risks taken with rooting.

    Why don't you stop playing the overly responsible adult, and let people go free with their new tablet? It will only bring you more loyal buyers!

    Please free the bootloader!

    Thank you.

    i dont think a device should have to be rooted to be able to install custom roms and such. we all have pc's and they do not need to be rooted to remove bloatware, and reinstall an os or install a new 1. bugs the hell outta me. all the political BS going into mobile devices, and OS. i love android being open source, but damn, it is difficult to get new firmwares for devices, if manufactures would just release drivers, and all for their devices, like they do for a pc. its all crazy.... toshiba is loosing it, im on a toshiba laptop right now, and i will never purchase a tablet from them cuz literaly they r junk. having all these limitations on mobile devices just dont make much sense. all over the all mighty dollar, i suppose i dont even know. u own it, you should be able to root it or customize it as much as you want. dont lock the consumer out of their own device. thats crazy. what can we do as consumers to rise against manufactures and let them no to stop locking down their mobile devices.

    Toshiba doesn't monitor these sites.

    If you bothered to look at the post dates, you'd see even USERS don't come to this site...much.

    But for post-sales answers most consumers just lurk...
    and as I will do, just move on to a more open manufacturer.
    Good luck with Toshiba...
