    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.

    sweet... thanks for the help... i just spent 2 hours trying to figure out how to find the usb driver.... none exists...

    z4root worked great.. its rooted now... trying to overclock.... wierd... wont let me... will try later...

    i cant use adb unless i get a usb driver... would be nice.... im gonna check rom dump now, i dont think i can dump the rom unless i get a usb driver...

    windows says..... "MID" ..... generic name for tablet...

    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?

    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. :eek:

    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

    well... i got rom dump working.... but... the actual program isnt working... (lmao...)

    i run it... and it just creates an empty folder... no dump...

    if i had a usb driver it would be soooo much easier

    lmao... got market working..!!!


    1) goto 4shared.com - free file sharing and storage on the device
    2) search "android market apk"
    3) find one that says version 3.0.x and recent upload date
    4) download and install


    of coarse,... could allways goto google and download the latest gapps.zip

    im a hacker.... yay!!!

    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" ...

    i tried www.clockworkmod.com downloaded the apk... nope... it might work, but im not sure what device to select to try, and im not going to try any of them, because my device isnt listed....

    im gonna go search the market.... "flash, rom, recovery, image, boot"

    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

    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!

    myk3916 Well-Known Member

    not sure whats the difference... in the screen...

    i bought 2 of em...

    i know that you kinda have to press hard... its not a glass screen... definitely not an ipad...

    not sure if that helps... if you can describe the 2 maybe i can tell you...

    the restock fee is 15%

    i dont have them anymore, i have the coby kryos mid7012 now... but still monitor this forum...

    im gonna try to contact the supplier and see if they will give me a job!
