    Some Good News regarding Root for Vizio Tablet

    Thanks very much to Ch4lky (a developer on zergRush), I was able to root my Vizio tablet.

    For those who would like to root, please see the instructions in the first post of this thread. This works for me.

    #### Use the V3 version of DooMLoRD_v3_ROOT ######

    I am not the original developer. I just helped test it. Please thank the developer of zergRush who fixed this code on the Vizio. Post by Ch4lky here.

    Would one of the tech experts on the forum explain the uses and advantages of rooting the Vizio Tablet. Is this like climbing Everest, or are there some useful things we can do from root? Years ago, I was a Unix systems admin, so I know basic concept, just not how it applies in this new Android universe. Thanks.

    Any system modification needs rooting, so one can change/add files to the system itself. That's why it's a security issue as well (if root is enabled, some malicious app may use it to do things that harm your data or the system itself).

    Awesome news! I was actually going to buy a different tablet because of Vizios lack of root (SD problem is the only reason I see a personal need for root) even though I really wanted this tablet because of the IR Blaster feature. I still have one small concern which I'm not 100% convinced I even care about lol. If I root my Vizio tablet would that prevent me from receiving the ICS update if it is even released for this tablet. With that being said what are the chances of even getting a Ice Cream Sandwich update? Thanks in advance.

    I'm eagerly waiting for this. I bought one of these Vizios and a 32gb card before realizing the limitiations. Root is needed to resolve this.
