    Thanks for this. Before I try it out, just wondering if A) Will this overwrite the existing operating system from Asus, and B) Will this affect any operating system, firmware, or other types of upgrades from Asus in the future? Sorry for the newbie rooting questions. I have a rooted HTC EVO 4G phone and love it, but I know it’s very different than what came on the phone from Sprint, so just wondering on what the impact is on the operating system installed by Asus.

  3. Thanks a lot. It worked fine.

  4. So, how to unroot the tablet if I want to? Thank you!!!
