I have a 1st edition Xoom, WiFi, that I bought in March of 2011. I never rooted it before but am considering doing it now if it is still feasible. It looks like my current Android version is 4.1.2.
One thing - due to my work email, they made me encrypt the tablet. I hated it the moment I did it because it slowed it down quite a bit. But its done and there does not seem to be an option to un do it, unless rooting it will. I am ok with that as I do not need that email on this device. But is rooting an option with an encrypted tablet? Is it the same process? Does it change anything?
So - my questions are:
- Is it still feasible to root this tablet?
- Is this page this the latest/greatest Root for the Xoom?
- What version of Android would I have once done?
- Any other factors I need ot consider?
I rooted my phone a few years ago and it was straight forward. But I do not want to end up with a 10.1 inch brick.
