Vizio 8" Vtab-1008 Recovery menu access. How too.
Probably not a Albert Einstein moment however this is how I got to the "recovery Menu" .
1. With the unit OFF. press & HOLD BOTH volume buttons. (hold landscape seemed easier for me.)
2.Press and HOLD power until when buttons light up let go of the power button ONLY
You only have a second to do this other wise it will boot up as normal.
3. Still holding both volume keys the screen will show the Vizio logo Then it Will change to the TRIANGLE with the Exclamation mark . (that's a good thing).
4. Let go of the volume buttons.
5. Tap home button up pops the boot recovery menu. Instructions at the top.
Ok I did my part now lets root this puppy.
*Disclaimer you mess up you unit its your problem not mine of this forum !!!!!!

Nice find. I heard that Gingerbreak can root this tablet. But in order to load a custom rom, you'd need a custom boot loader like Clockwork Recovery. Doubt one has been written for the vtab.
