Thought I would start this thread anyways, I guess if there are enough of us it'll survive, and it not it won't.
I reviewed the MediaPad recently here, something of a novelty reviewing something at the end of its commercial life...
...and I also wrote a (hopefully) noob-friendly guide for installing Jelly Bean here. If you just want to Root it, and don't care about Jelly Bean (as if!) then a guide for Rooting it is here.
I have to say I was already quite enthused about the MediaPad before a Jelly Bean ROM arrived, but it has really taken on a new lease of life with the availability of a virtually perfect CM10 ROM.
Anyone else taken the plunge and gone for Jelly Bean?
