Default Video Vtab root and ROMs?

My dad has a vizio tablet and is very disappointed with the performance of it. I've told him if there was a custom ROM I could install to it, it would delete the unnecessary bloatware and speed it up but I haven't found anyway to root or a custom recovery or ROM for it. Am I not looking in the right places?

Thanks!

Your in luck, vtab with Honeycomb was just finally rooted (link below). No ROMs yet (no custom kernels), but you can get App Quarantine, Root Uninstall, etc and have at it. I extended my battery life a ton by deleting the phone.apk that was unnecessarily eating up battery power searching for a cell signal.

Awesome...now I've heard u can compile cm or another ROM for different devices by implementing the device source or whatever its called into it. I may be wrong since I'm not a dev but at least rooting will allow us to take the unneeded software off. Too bad it won't get rid if vizios ugly and cumbersome ui
