    Ok, i just ordered one of those 7" tablets for 77$ and for the price i can't complain.. But i just moved from ios to android so i'm stuck and confused as crap. I know what rooting is, and rom is bascially a theme (correct me if i'm wrong).. But, theres many rooting applications for tablets, but this chinese tablet isn't name branded so im stuck and don't know which rooting application should i use.. please help? Also, Which rom should you suggest i get?

    A ROM is not a theme. You don't need to root.

    A Rom is the firmware or the operating system.

    No. It depends on the ROM. It might be 2.2 or 2.3 or 3.x or 4.0. The ROM replaces the version of Android that was preloaded on your device. It's akin to reinstalling Windows. ROMs are usually stripped of bloatware and most have superuser access ("rooted" ) already.

    If you need to ask these questions, you're not ready to hack your device. You'll end up bricking it. However, an $80 Chinese special is the right device for your first time. I bought an eBay special to learn Android before buying my Droid X.
