It looks like we got our Christmas present a little early!

This is the rooted 8.6.5.21 rom. I just added su and Superuser. It does not overwrite recovery or the bootloader, so it should play nicely with razorclaw. Regardless, flash at your own risk. If in doubt, don't flash it.

This is the full rom, not the update. It is not deodexed, and it might even have carrier iq installed???!!! I only added root.

Edit: US version

Merry Christmas!

Awesome, thanks.

How does the US version compare to the UK one?

Also do I have to somehow flash to a .19 stock then root to flash this? (I haven't got mine yet).

The US rom has 25% more Android! magic in it. There might be other differences as well.

The newer tablets will be locked, so you have to root through .19.

I have a question. Say I have a B60 that was rooted via apx. I can't update. If I were to flash this rom, will I lose all my apps, data, etc.?

Actually, anyone has a cwm flashable zip for this update?

This is the cwm flashable zip. It only flashes the system and boot, so data and recovery are untouched.

As far as not being able to update, I'm not sure what that means without more details.

The OP clearly says this is a rom, not just the update. Actually, here's his exact words.

It means how it sounds. I can't seem to OTA update while rooted. I rooted via apx. B60. The update process always ends up with an exclamation point next to an android, meaning it can't update.

Apologies for my ignorance.

Are you saying that when I flash this rom, all my apps and data will be left untouched?
