New Vizio Tablet Rooted Well Before Launch

We initially passed on posting the news of Vizio’s new Android tablet that was introduced last week because the UI looked pretty unfinished, it wasn’t running Honeycomb and there was enough lag while scrolling through menus to give us an instant headache.  But now, thanks to a DL reader, we can see that production models of the device can easily be rooted using one of our old friends, GingerBreak.  Talk about a great way to put life into a device that so far had sort of underwhelmed most Android enthusiasts.  I would guess that with root, its $349 price tag, and plans to get it upgraded to Honeycomb shortly after launch, this might be worth a look after all.

And in case you missed the random promotional video of Blake Griffin with his paws all over this laggy little machine, we’ve dropped it below.  


Cheers CO!

    Somehow, none of the root exploits (rageagainstthecage, gingerbreak, zergrush etc.) seem to work on this device. So what is different between the pre-release tablet and the ones on sale now. Does anyone have a pre-release ROM for this device? Thanks.

    I like my vizio tv a lot, but I’m thinking they should just focus on making awesome tvs.

    I wonder if it’ll pop and then go dead like Vizio TV’s? 😀

    Forget this we need details on the SGS2 or Bionc release dates, lol. I am going to start emailing Samsung Mobile twice a week.

    Dear people who know how to root stuff,

    Please stop blowing your wad in your pants by releasing root exploits for shit before it is released. That is the reason we don’t have root on the OTA update on the Droid X. The only people you’re helping are the ones you’re trying to undermine by rooting in the first place. Try to have a little self control and wait until it’s too late for the manufacturer to do anything about it.
