    Hi all,

    Found this forum from googling about rooting the Kyros.

    I've been trying to understand if rooting means that I can install Android 2.2, or, since its an embedded device, am I stuck with 2.1 ?

    This line from wikipedia has me really intrigued:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooting_%28Android_OS%29

    Is that accurate about the Kyros ?

    Also, does it support ad hoc connections ?


    Thanks

    There is some work being done on updating the kyros by myself and others. Cyanogenmod has an version for the tablet, but I don't think anyone had finished a kernel update yet

    if you can wait for a tablet running gingerbread (2.3) you might as well just wait for a tablet running honeycomb because honeycomb is suppose to be even better and actually made for tablets

    True I guess. Depends on the price. If the 2.3 is cheaper I'll go for that.

    Also, still waiting for clarification on ad hoc connections.


    Thanks
