Hi Everyone I have a Sumvision Cyclone A9 Andoid 2.3 Media Player (small black box) - not nano I purchased this neat little box and attached a 1.5tb HDD, with the intention of sharing out the content to the rest of the family (NAS style - MAC and Win7) with the added luxury of being able to play movies / music etc attached to my living room tv via HDMI. The box is currently wireless but I also have a gigabit switch nearby that I can connect to hardwired. Ive already been able to install the SWIftp.apk on the box and set up this 'share' via ftp but the transfer rate is poor - avging out at 1.2Mbs. I'd expect to be getting at least 20-40Mbs over LAN if hardwired. Without success Ive been trying to root the Sumvision Cyclone A9 Andoid 2.3 Media Player with Z4root.apk and Gingerbreak.apk (none appear to work) so that I can utilise SuperUser with the Samba Filesharing.apk Does ANYONE know how to root or can offer an alternative method to get my smb fileshare up and running. Also, has anyone achieved running the Samba Filesharing app on another box? What transfer rates are you experiencing over your LAN? Any help appreciated PS. Ive already checked thread the rooting-ider-a10 thread but doesnt appear to solve my gear and set up. Quote: ruzzolone - Model A9 is there an app called z4root, for model A10 no app do the rooting( Android 2.3 ) ....but z4root doesnt work on the Sumvision Cyclone A9 Andoid 2.3 Media Player. Ive tried.
