It seems like there is no one here that wants to answer the BASIC STARTING POINT questions. I have been ALL OVER these forums and I realize that there are MANY different varieties of Tablets so it would help if someone could just start with the most POPULAR and it seems that since we are in a "RECESSION" most people are buying the ones on e bay for $100 bucks or so. That's what I did, just to get started. Most of us cant afford an I-pad. I have read that you need to "ROOT" your Tablet FIRST....so I tried that and it won't root....I enabled the USB De-bugging and it still didn't root. I tried it again with Z4root and did a Temporary root but then it won't run the Titanium Backup because it says it's NOT rooted. Now what ? I NEED to BACKUP my Tablet in case something goes wrong and I need to re-load the apps. I don't want to "BRICK" it. Now, I'm not stupid...I build my own computers, hacked my PSP, hacked programs, etc. but this has me befuddled. I am a Certified Computer Tech with a Degree in Digital Electronics and a Degree in Electrical Engineering but I dont know everything and I am always willng to learn new things. I am an old an too 63 years of age. You need to be SPECIFIC....what is simple to you is not so simple to others... If and when I figure this thing out ( and sooner or later I will), I will write an EXTENSIVE GUIDE or NEWBIES on HOW TO ROOT YOUR TABLET. I am willing to help anyone with any problem if I can, but you guys that succeeded where us "Newbies" have not, need to step up and lend a hand...

It's the RIGHT thing to do.
