Hello again guys right I have another question and I know its more than likely been answered a million times but I am truly a newbie 🙄😆 my question: Rooting does it let you put the latest or recent android os on old android tablets? Like for example my archos 80 xs which in another thread which I need help on as Its going nuts atm! Which if you check my other thread you'll see what that's about. Anyway I look forward to your answers and thank you in advance 😊.

    Rooting it or not is not essential to that but you should need two main things in order to do this:
    - Your device´s bootloader need to be unlockable or is unlocked by default or as in old times happened with some devices doesn´t matter if it is unlocked or not (prior to KitKat)
    - And of course that it is a custom ROM available for your specific device.

      Just check in the General Forum and in the Development section for your device and if it is any you´ll find it there.
