      Hi
      Question? What is the benefit when you do the rooting for the Tab plus? What parts of the bloatware will be eliminated? Thanks

      • Rei

        @Richard.

        After rooting your Tab and installing an app like root explorer, you can pretty much delete any bloatware, permanently. Just be careful which app you remove. It may be needed by the device to run properly. I usually remove live wallpapers and carrier specific apps first since i find those pretty useless.

    Fail, in the recovery mode, I only found “Apply update from …….”, after I select it, it said “Fail to mount the /sdcard”.
