The only experience I have with gaining root access on a mobile device is with jailbreaking my iPod 5g. No other experience with hacking at all. So what does rooting do? What advantages are there to rooting and should I do it? My tablet is a Kindle Fire HDX 7" and I've been wanting to root it since I got the thing.

Should you root? Well, a big YES if you want to remove bloat and install a proper ad blocker, amongst other things.

However, the current versions have not been rooted YET.
