Rooting the Asus Zenpad is all about what you can do with more apps. One of the best apps for your rooted Zenpad is the GMD Speed Time app that makes gaming ten times better than without having root access to your internal system. With the GMD Speed Time app running on your Zenpad, you do not have to wait around for any of the mandatory wait times that come with many games these days.
