    How to root your Cube U9GT

    1. Download the RK29xx Image Pack/Unpack Tools v2.1: https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B8hUXYDeoy_hNTc1YTVkYTMtNTNjZS00YjI2LTgyN DYtYjRjZjFmODdiZTQ1

    Special thanks to the Wendal Chen (http://wendal.net) for this wonderful tool!!!

    2. Unzip it into a folder

    3. Now copy your firmware image file (*.img) into the folder that you created before and rename it to "wendal.img".

    The firmware files you can download here: LATEST FIRMWARE FOR U9 GT - Rockchip 2918. I tested it with the newest version 1.10, means I copied the firmware image file "CUBE_U9GT-20110701_V1.10.img" into the folder where I unziped the RK29xx Image Pack/Unpack Tools v2.1 before and renamed it to "wendal.img"

    4. What you have till now should looks like this:

    Name:  Foldercontent.jpg
Views: 4362
Size:  41.7 KB

    5. Now run the "Runme.bat", it comes up a command line window

    6. Insert 1 and press Enter to unpack the firmware image file.

    7. You're now asked again to copy the firmware image file to this folder and rename it to "wendal.img".

    8. With the fact that we have already did it before we can go on directly pressing any key. The firmware image file will is getting unpacked now, just wait till it has finished.

    It is important that the file check and unpacking the firmware was OK. Because this tool is not just unpacking the firmware image file, but it enables also the root permission automatically as well as it installs the app "Superuser". This means that once the tool has finished (Unpack -- All Done) the firmware has been automatically unpacked and rooted and there's also the Superuser app already included.

    9. Your folder content should looks like this now:

    Name:  FoldercontentAfter.jpg
Views: 4026
Size:  46.0 KB

    10. The only thing that now remains is to pack again the firmware files to have a rooted firmware image file to flash with the Cube U9GT Upgrade Tool (LATEST FIRMWARE FOR U9 GT - Rockchip 2918).

    11. Go back to the command line window, insert 2 and press Enter.

Size:  84.6 KB

    12. That's all! If you see that making the firmware file is OK and you also read "Pack complete!! Target file --> wendal_new.img" everything went well and you again have a firmware image file (wendal_new.img) to flash on your device.

    13. You don't know how to flash a fimware image?

    In exactly the same way as you update your device's firmware: LATEST FIRMWARE FOR U9 GT - Rockchip 2918. As firmware file choose the new created "wendal_new.img" and in the end you will have a rooted Cube U9GT.

    Good luck!!!

    Root U8GT (RK2918) Yes! Remove Apps, No!

    I was able to root my U8GT using the U8GT firmware and your instructions. (Thank you very much, btw.) I am, however, still unable to delete the apps that came preloaded. I get an error Root Explorer "system (or whatever I try to alter) cannot be changed because the file system is read only."

    Have you had any success in removing any of these apps?

    Thanks!

    Simply delete the unwanted AKPs (*.apk) from app-folder before repacking the firmware. Anyway leave necessary systems apps.

    Here is my own rooted "lite" version based on 1.10 for U9GT with updated Launcher Pro (0.8.6): http://www.filesonic.com/file/1717887501

    Thank you, I did that and it worked. Are you able to write to the /system/app ? Every time I try to mount as read and write (rw) it says "cannot be deleted because the file system is read-only." I cannot mount r/w in Root Explorer. Any luck? Thank you so much for your expertise!

    I did find the slatedroid.com post and I was able to flash my boot.ini and achieve a writable system.

    BTW, the original firmware (for rooting) for the U8GT can be downloaded here http://www.51cube.com/tools.asp

    I
    just used your instructions for the U9GT and now I LOVE my U8GT.

    Thanks for your time and patience.
