  4. looking back, this tablet was a bitch to root. I have/had the V50010D model. If I remember right, I had to search for hours for a V50010A kdz and rewrite my tablet to it and go from there. But once CM11 or whatever is on there it is golden. This bitch has lasted me 16 months and counting with no signs of slowing down.

  5. it doesn't work on my tab with 4.4.2, it doenst seem to install the necassary files…;-/
