I was just wondering how many of you plan on rooting your Xoom once a dev gains SU access?
Nah i want my warrenty. After it expires sure why not.
I am seriously considering it. I did not root my phone (droid Incredible) mostly because I did not really see the need. However, I am thinking about do it for the Xoom. But I will look for as close to idiot proof instructions as I can find.
I will most likely, well if there is a easy way to return to a stock state at least.
Yeah, actually I had this same question earlier when thinking of rooting. Will I be able to return it to stock easily? Is there a way to back up the system?
Very easy to reset, yes
I will root my Xoom after a couple days of owning it. I'll be in no rush :/ But it will definitely happen!
I think it will be very similar to the Droid X, they currently have a one click root/unroot app called z4root. It roots the current Android version on the device (2.2.1), you just install the app press root and poof rooted. Android 3.0 may very well be a whole new beast though.
I'll root every Android device if it'll let me. I don't know if it'll be rootable for awhile though.
Voted that I will root. Could have used a "seriously considering it" option but where I am leaning towards rooting I went with that.
I can't wait to see what XDA has cooked up for the Xoom. Should be awesome
Only if I need to for functionality.
I rooted my OG droid about 43 seconds after I got home from the store. I'm 100% positive I will root the Xoom as XDA and other devs start come up with some killer stuff for it.
You know, 99% of the time rooting doesn't hurt a device. It's what you do after you root that can mess up your device.
I've heard that rooting can void a manufacturer's warranty, but how about a third party warranty, like best buy or square trade?
added,,, should have sent me a PM b4 you voted...
Definite yes for me. Root adds the functionality that I want, at least it did for my X.
I apologize if my earlier comment came across as criticism. I was just speaking casually in play.
Yup I'm down with rooting, but will probably wait a few days after the rooting procedure, etc. have been established, just to be sure.
ABSOLUTELY!!! The day root becomes available for the device is the day I will root!
What's Android without rooting it? I'm rooting first quarter
Think I am keeping mine stock when it hits Denmark sometime in Q2. The only immediate thing I have seen rooting useful for in earlier devices was tehtering. But as that is a built in feature these days, I am not really sure why I should.
I haven't rooted my X10 either, but who knows. Might just be the Xoom that changes my look on rooting.
