    If your happy with the way your Kyros is running now, then don't root. If you want more control over your tablet and like customizing the tablet to "your" likings, then by all means root.

    This is what I used:
    shortfuse.org

    Just be sure to read up! Have fun

    Root is needed to modify system files, so unless you want to hack your tablet or install some apps that require rooting (mostly system utilities, like screenshot apps, ROM tools, etc, nothing related to daily use) it's not needed.

    just look for apps that u want on your tablet. well if the apps need root access then u need to root. but if u just want to watch movies and play games. i guess u dont need to root at all.
    but there are a lot of things that can u do with a rooted tablet.just try to read and read, from that u can learn a lot. one apps that i really loved is the link2sd, it needs root access, because of this apps i expand my existing memory and link my apps to external microsd.

    Probably not, usually Telechips based tablets like 8127 don't have built-in support for 3G dongles even when modifying system files. Your only chances are a custom ROM (haven't heard of any yet) with support to 3G modems or using an external portable 3G rooter (it will share 3G via WiFi).

    So are there any roms specific for the 8127? I have been searching for roms high and low for this tablet with no luck. I don't care about 3G because I use my phone for a modem when not at WIFI.
