Is going to f2fs fix this? I'm a little afraid to try since I've seen people mention how you need to convert all the partitions, install a new recovery, and it can brick the tablet. So I'd like to try the latest stable rom which can offer me a speed boost, any suggestions? And whether or not f2fs is recommended?

btw also want to thank everyone on XDA for their hard work keeping this little guy alive when everyone else has abandoned it. Its still a great little tablet.

the taktik builds were/are still very much beta, and have several issues.

the new builds (aosp, CM, omnirom) all run really smooth/fast running either ext4 or f2fs

if you want cm or omni check out post 3 (in the link below). aosp is post 4 (the carbon in post6 also looks cool, but ive not tried it yet)
my personal preference is omnirom, with aosp a close 2nd

**edit to add**
the wifi issues you mentioned (along with many other bugs/issues) have been fixed in all the current roms i mentioned above

I agree! A couple of months ago I was in the market for a new tablet. I gathered up the specs that I wanted to see, and the Sero 7 pro met every one of them. Imagine my surprise to find it wasn't still in production! Luckily I got one of the NewEgg refurb units.

I really haven't found what is current that is better than the Sero 7 pro, so I really appreciate everyone who is trying to keep things current.

I picked up another Sero 7 Pro last night (my 6th one for family members) . It was such a steal at $40 that I couldn't pass it up. The guy I bought it from was very honest and showed me that everything works except the data port. USB still charges, but he checked it out and found physical damage there.

Anyway, for the person using it, no biggie, but I am interest to know if there is any way to root this without it being hooked up to the computer.

Assuming you're on stock, Hisense hasn't updated the tablet in months, so the kernel is most likely vulnerable to the exploit used in Towelroot.

I was actually just reading about this. I'm going to give it a go and see what happens

**So, Towelroot does not root the tablet. In my reading, it seems that towelroot is for 4.4, and the tablet is 4.2.1

So, again, looking for a way to root the tablet without hooking it up to the computer.

Have any active devs looked at porting Lollipop?

I'd love to know the likelyhood of this happening! If it's not coming, i guess i'll have to settle for kit-kat.

Delorespark is working on a L version for the Sero 7 pro, but he said it will be awhile before he releases it.

Edit,
dolorespark posted an update about his work on L
I've got Android 5.0.0 up and running on my tablet. Sadly, there's a big problem: no sound.
