    I would like someone to tell me what to do so I will not do something wrong and kill my new facepad :) Should I just follow Mutari's flytouch 3 guide or do something different for facepad? Also can anyone suggest any programs for after the rooting that would be helpful? Thank you :D

    Also I have found a post in this forums and seemed helpful but still for flytouch.


    Edit-
    Tim5a is out

    The concencus seems to be that the facepad is EXACTLY the same as a FT3 apart from uprated speakers, so anything you find that works on a FT3s will work on your facpad.

    All Tims firmware comes pre-rooted, just flash the firmware...job done. If you want to root the facepad while keeping your existing firmware you can follow Mutari's guide..http://androidforums.com/flytouch-3-all-things-root/296714-guide-how-root-flytouch-3-a.html

    The first program to use after rooting the facepad should IMHO be Titanium Pro to backup your tab.

    It already has Titanium Backup (not sure if its pro) but can you explain why a backup is needed since I have no extra applications? I am guessing its a system backup in case something goes wrong?

    PS. I Turned Titanium Backup off from the startup programs.

    Yup - 2nd post here, but the first thing I did was back it up - learned that lesson long time ago on another tablet :p

    And I have the facepad too, so thanks for the info.
