Root process:
1. Turn on tablet
2. Register, turn off wifi
3. Check version number. if 1.4.0 proceed to root and OTA block,,, If 1.4.1- use sdcard flash back to 1.4.0 before proceeding to root
4. either turn on wifi long enough to enable debugging or just sideload app with usb. turn off wifi again.
5. follow part 1 video
6. follow part 2 video
7. enable wifi and download titanium backup and dropbox, download files through dropbox, turn off wifi
8. Follow OTA Block Video
9. move files from dropbox to titanium backup folder and restore
10. verify software version number changed to 9.9.9
11. Enable Wifi, Profit! you are protected from OTA patches
12. Stay in touch with your root developer's thread and use NEW Hijack ADB app to update your root as the developers release new root patches.

Note: If you are worried about time taken after downloading titanium backup, you can use titanium backup to freeze devicemanager2.3.4.apk. this will block OTA aswell.

New Video on Installation of Clock Work Mod (CWM) via app provided by Indirect. Also explanation of how this is one step closer to installing roms. This can also be used to make backup copies of your tablet.
