    rooting the robot

    Basically is it possible to load a gnu/linux os onto an Android tablet, particularly a 'joy tab 9.7" '? Also how does one go about "rooting" such a device?

    Device(s)
    HTC Desire
    Unless the vendor supports a way of rooting the device (very few if any do), the techniques are different from one device to another. Even within a single manufacturer like HTC or Samsung, different devices have different ways to stop you rooting them.

    Your best plan is to look for rooting guides for your device. http://forum.xda-developers.com/ is a good place to start. But be prepared for a lot of research.
