    I received my tablet about 2 weeks ago and love it. Today, now that it has been released there is also an update from 3.1 to 3.2. I think this is the first tablet that can give the ipad a run for its money. So how do we root the damn thing? I need to root the device so I can try to patch the one big epic fail on Android, you can't connect to an adhoc connection. I have no idea who thought that would be a good idea at Google but they should be demoted. Without this ability there is no way to tether to most cellphones. If someone could point me in the right direction I don't mind trying it myself first.

    I am trying to tether to an iphone. Unfortunately all the tether apps for iphone, that I have tried, only show up as an ad hoc connection. IMO this is a huge flaw in Android. You can read about it here.
