    Re: i have just rooted my my a 500 and would like to know what i can do now

    I rooted my A500r in order to get screen shots. After rooting and trying numerous screen shot programs I ended up with one that claims to not need root.

    I'll be putting a DLNA server on an NAS and it is already proving useful to having an Android linux command line to try different shell commands, even though the OS/Shells aren't the same.

    Thanks for the replys. Hopefully someone will tell me what I should do after rooting and giving a fellow some much needed help with his tablet. We all have to start somewhere don't we.

    Super user is simply the gateway that allows applications that need root access to function. When you open a application that requires root access super user will pop up and ask you if you want to grant access to the application. As for Titanium BU this is an app that does a lot more than just back up your apps. Here's a link to the how to page for it....... http://www.titaniumtrack.com/kb/titanium-backup-kb

    IMO, rooting a tablet is not all that necessary unless you NEED to run a root app like Cisco VPN, or run a custom firmware (ROM)

    Do not root just to say you rooted your tablet because its what all the cool nerds are doing.

    There are some serious security risks if you are rooted because you have full access to the tablet. This also means if you get malware somehow that it too has full access to your tablet.

    I rooted to run a custom ROM (I have Android 4.2.1 on my Tegra 2 tablet and the OEM is on 4.0.3 and does not have plans to go further).

    Before I rooted I read many many websites and forums about rooting risks, risk of bricking, and how recoverable my tablet was if I hard bricked it.

    But IMO, most (95%) of tablet users should not need to root. Phones have a much higher reward for rooting, but tablets, not so much.
