    got this on a trade. technically, you can say i spent 40$ on it, since the item i traded was valued at that.

    anywho

    its running ICS 4.0.4. want to root, but cant find any one-clicks that work. can i downgrade to 2.3 and root like i did my ascend II? would also love to install CM7 or 10 on it if possible.

    My tablet had the android laying down with the red exclamation point. It seems to have went into recovery mode. How do you get out of this recovery window?

    Ok I'am being unsuccessful rooting the device, I have the Sophix 7" Tablet model: TAB-730.
    The method mentioned above is not doing anything, can a small tutorial/steps be posted with the files needed?

    I'm wondering why there isn't a section for this tablet yet? Admins wuzzzup? :)

    The adb drivers from superoneclick along with bin4rys root with restore should work. I've tried it, but a difx_dll error keeps prompting when I go to install the drivers. Could I get adb drivers installed without s1c?

    Recently updated the firmware on my TAB-740G to Android 4.4.2 (Download - Support). Very exciting because I only paid $20 out-of-pocket for this tablet and the update really kicked this thing into high-gear!

    I'm know trying to re-root. I've tried a few different options (TowelRoot, Famaroot) but they have not worked.

    I did also figure out how to get updated ADB drivers using MoboRobo (MoboRobo - The Android Smartphone PC Manager. Free for Life!) but every batch file I've used cannot find the /data/local/tmp directly and therefore won't continue the root process.

    Anyone out there know anything about the TAB-740G and other ideas no root?
