I have a k016, borrowed from my father, and I hate it. I would like at least to root it so I can force it to install apps on the SD card and free it from some bloatware ****. Is it doable? I don't need a custom room, but this damn thing keeps on clogging the internal memory and i can't install anything even if i tell it to move stuff on the external storage. I don't have much time to dedicate to this piece of crap but i need it for work right now. Thanks.

Hey man, is there any custom ROM available for the fonepad? (K004).
The official 4.4 is very boring, maybe there is a better/newer one or one with tweaks?? thanks.

I do have root, Im looking for custom roms. idk if you have this problem but my tablet is fully cleaned uninstalled garbage, greenify and other optimising apps plus tried overclocking but it LAGS SO MUCH EVEN IN MENU I do not understand any ideas
I have the same problem. It lags a lot, even after a factory reset. How did you Root it? A solution is to upgrade to Linux.

How do you upgrade it to linux? I rooted my tablet by flashing a rooted firmware I found here using the official asus flasher
Do a search for Linux in this thread. I have read it here. There was an article on XDA news a few weeks ago about installing Linux on Android. You can also search Google.

Did it fix lag for you?
There is a way to fix lag. My advice is to install NoRoot Firewall by Grey Shirts, a perfect tool to authorize NET access to just one App at a time. The tablet is now extremely fast!
Naked Browser is a tiny web browser (100 kb) that I love. Try it!

Google Play Services syncing app has a reputation for causing lag and battery drain.

I had to uninstall that app from my old Samsung Galaxy Y Mini (GT-S5570). Google Drive became not accessible. However, other Google apps still work fine. The phone got much faster now!

Download beforehand the app Play Services Info by weberdo. It will enable you to find and reinstall Goggle Play Services if you need it.
