Any help to root? Did a lot of google and now back to our friends.
What do you mean by rooting?

I am not able to upgrade some of the factory Installed apps. Says signing is not right; uninstall & Install again. I can't uninstall those apps! How do we go about this?

How to open files when we connect a USB? Not able to do that!

And for the boot sound, I keep the tab under the pillow till its on ;-)

Edit:

I get around 5 hours on wifi. Rarely get a screen flickring too. And got my share of electric shock. It happens even if the switch is off, but the plug still in the socket.

Its similar to the superuser in linux or unix. Basically you gain the "root" control and can play with any of the operating system files.

I think we cannot uninstall stock apps unless you are root (something like administrator)

If its media files, you can directly open the players. It will list those files. I use the MX player, and it shows me all the files in USB. I can just select anyone to play.

Yup. Pillow method is most famous I guess.

Where I stay, I don't have a WiFi; so really looking forward for a solution to connect & use my Tata Photon+ (Huwai device)
