Anybody still using a rooted T1?

Foreword: I'm quite happy with my Sony Readers, so suggestions that I buy something else will be ignored. Cheers!

So, I am currently running the modified home screen and reader on my PRS-T1 but am considering rooting.

Is anybody still using a rooted T1?

I de-rooted my reader about a year ago in exchange for the newest version of the firmware.
The biggest issue I had is that there are few apps that still function on such an old version of android.

Good point. Really all I want is a solitaire game.

What benefits does the newest official firmware have?

Newest offical firmware gives access to the Kobo store on the Sony T readers.

I just dusted mine off after breaking my Kobo Aura HD; I'm not super impressed with any of the readers on the market at the moment, and I'm hoping if I can hold out a little while, someone might finally release one with all the features I desire...

That being said, my experience with the T1 over the last couple of days is that it's buggy as hell, so I might not be able to hold out that long...

Yes, the T1 is quite buggy. The T2 is much better and no shiny plastic.

Agreed the T2 is way better. I have one I might root.

I find lots of apk files that work on 2.1. Depends what you want it to do I suppose. I prefer the Nook ST anyway.

Does anyone have any advice on what the best course of action with my reader is?

It's currently on firmware version 1.0.05.11130, should I update to the latest version or root it?

If I update it, will I still be able to root it? I don't really have a lot of interest in installing apps, but I wouldn't mind adding Pocket. If it's not possible to root the latest version, is it possible to downgrade to an older version of the firmware?

If I root it, is there an alternative reading app that is more stable/less buggy?

Was there ever a fix for the double-page-turn issue?

Just curious, what kind of bugs? So far I haven't run into any bugs on my "new" T1, but I'm well aware that I haven't used it for long.

I may be running into to that. I thought I had a sticky switch or I was holding it down too long.

Sometimes the T1 just slows down for some reason and as AFAIK its unfixable.

My T1 eventually started locking up when using the dictionary. This didn't happen until I'd been using it for a few years though.

I had the double page turn issue only occasionally.

Mine had issues after I'd delete a book. I had to reboot it often which took care of any issues it had, but between the shiny plastic and the constant rebooting, I was very happy to get my hands on a T2.

So far I haven't had those issues, but I haven't put a lot of books on the T1 yet either.
