I have been putting off rooting mine for months now. Last night I took the step and got it done. In my surfing I found out that the bootloader can be unlocked on this device. I don't understand why they dont do this with all of their phones. Also the xoom came out after it was standard practice for Motorola to lock the bootloader on their devices. Im glad thay didnt though because now ima overclock to 1.7 GHZ and install ICS (which hasn't been pushed to 4g xoom yet).

Hooray for hackers.

Why all Android books UK based?

Can someone please explain to me why all the magazines and books in US bookstores on the Android platform or Android apps are UK based (pricing is all or mostly in pounds, addresses for subscription services are in UK, etc.,)? Android is via Google, an American company, thus I don't get why pretty much all (OK, I found 1 written and published in the US) of the magazines and books coming out of the UK. All input helpful and welcome.

Also, I have asked this before with no response so another try... Can anyone recommend a good book or magazine to pick up for someone who is new to the Android platform (first smartphone so the learning curve is feeling a little steep)?

Cloud storage

How secure are they, and are there any privacy issues I should be concerned with. In particular the box cloud service, not dropbox.

ICS Upgrade for Samsung G S II

What are some of the best tablet-specific apps?

I just got a new tablet and I've noticed there are a few apps designed specifically with the larger screen in mind, the youtube app being the best example I've found. It is awesomely functional and gorgeous.

Any other tablet specific recommendations?

Android Magazines or Books

Can anyone recommend a good book or magazine that discusses all things Android? I learn best by reading and following steps and need to get up and running on my new Galaxy S II (should arrive on VDay Very Happy ) very quickly. Came across a series of books called "Missing Manuals" and there was one for the G S II but wasn't sure if that was the most comprehensive I could/would find.

Also noted something a bit odd... All the Android magazines I found on the newsstand were for the UK market as most of the prices were in pounds. What's up with that?

Im using retrocam which is fun but doesnt have all the options i like. I like diff film, exposure and click anywhere to take stuff. I dont have a flash so stuff that has night settings works good for me. Im willing to pay a few bucks if worth it.
