You need to the boot.img if you want to get a compatible version of CWM (as far as I'm aware). Once rooted, you can get that via a ROM Dump.

Good luck.

ok i got to rom dump....

i cant use adb.. but i have terminal open... i can manually chmod the file but how do i run it?


let me try to understand:

adb push romdump /data/local/ =(send romdump app to device)=

adb shell chmod 04755 /data/local/romdump =(set read write permissions )=

adb shell /data/local/romdump =(run ???? not sure)=

so... if i can move the file to the device, and i can chmod it, do i just run it using the 'sh' command like "sh romdump"

and just wait..??? for it to finish... if im not wrong... but if i am, how do i?

edit:
guess im wrong...

i copied file to sdcard, then moved it to the /data/local dir, then tried "sh romdump" says
" syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")" ) "

hmmm... stumped for a sec

Overclocking has to be enabled at kernel level, so if you're using the standard ROM, you'll be able to underclock, but not overclock most likely.

Not sure about the ROM Dump, I've only ever done it once and it worked via ADB so not sure about the ins and outs of it via the terminal.

quick seccond.... found it:

*Method Two* - /Terminal/

You need to install a terminal application from the Android Market, I
recomend google's own, but as long as its free.

Once you have installed it, copy the downloaded install file to the root
of your sdcard, then launch your terminal application and type the
following commands:

cat /sdcard/install >/data/local/install
chmod 04755 /data/local/install
/data/local/install

Please refer to our Site Rules in my sig - we really frown on the use of the word gay in that context.

Cheers, thanks!

PS - Glad you got that all working.

ok... so i appologize.... not trying to be sexually bias'd or discriminatory.. just using it as a slang term... sorry again...

besides the matter.... how can i get a recovery image on here... is there a specific recovery image that is more universal than others?? its not a phone, its just a pad.. (it does have a 3g thing thou, supposively can use it as a phone???) i really dont wanna brick my device...

is it firmware specific? or i really need to extract the boot sector first to modify it??? i really would like to get clockwork recoverymod on here, so i can flash roms and test if any of them will work....

any help? im kinda lost after the romdump thing, considering it worked and then didnt.... how can i pull recovery boot sector off and mod it? the stock system, probly doesnt have a recovery image... or it could....

i allready emailed the company asking in a easy tone, "what do i do if i need to re-install the os?" and "will this pad ever offer updates, mainly gingerbread..??" no reply yet... still waiting...

and i still need a damn usb driver... anyone know a generic one? i tried the GOOGLE_USB driver in the sdk..... nope... windows detects the device as "MID" ...

hmmm funny... I was in school... just turned the device on... froze...

I called the company, they said I can't re-install android on it, the only option is to return it... sucks.. if adb worked I could flash it... the customer service Guy was friendly, but offered no help...

I then went on to explain I'm a developer and proceeded to give him tech advice...

good luck, mine didn't last 24 hours... if they send me a free one and pay me, Iould fix their stuff!!

I'm going to go get the Coby 2.3 gingerbread, hope it has USB drivers!!

I'm gonna return this.... lates

Hi,

Do you know if this thing is capacitive or resistive screen? I just bought a few of these before i open them, and risk the restocking fee i was trying to find out. I cant seem to find it online anywhere.

Any info is greatly appreciated!
