    Talking A Complete Moron's Guide to 'Rooting' Your WM8650

    I am a technological idiot. All I knew was that my new tablet did not work and it was mostly in Chinese - not a clue did I have how to fix it. The IT guy at work said it needs 'rooting' but didn't know how to do it.
    I searched this website to try and find out how to 'root' my android- most threads I read might as well have been written in hieroglyphics (no offence meant).
    So for anybody unfortunate to be as dumb as me here's how to do it :-
    1. Go to Settings
    i) Applications
    ii)Unknown Sources - make sure there is a green tick (touch to change if not)
    Return to main menu
    2.Go to Browser
    i) Search for Applanet
    ii) Download - the download will appear in 'Notifications' (black drop down bar at the top)
    iii) from Notifications, touch the download notification and Install
    iv) Run Applanet
    3. Return to Browser Search
    i) Search for z4root
    ii) Download (as above)
    iii) as above
    iv) Run z4root - it will give you 3 options, temporary root, permanent root or uninstall - take your pick.
    4. There isn't one - you've done it.
    Now you can download apps until you turn purple and explode.
    I cannot take any credit for the above - Jani gave me the answer (cheers mate - if I'm ever in Finland I'll buy you a drink) I just did the idiot bit.

    Another segment to The Moron's Guide to WM8650: when you switch on the gadget for the first time and there is some feature bugging you, please do not immediately do the factory reset as it might cause just more problems than you already actually have. Reseting apparently removes all the applications from the device, so if you don't know how to get them back, better not to do it hastily.

    Try and use the tablet for a couple of days, read the forums and if after that there is still something that really needs the reset, then go for it.

    Hello Cletus,

    I was referred to this thread for a question I have.
    I recently purchased a Chinese Andoid tablet WM8650 E18 and I've been trying to enable the ADHOC mode on it.

    Pbauer mentioned to me that there are ROM upgrades available, that are compatible with the E18 tablet, that
    also have the ADHOC mode enabled..

    Since I'm new to this, I am hoping for a little help.

    Thank you in advance..

    WM8650 ROM update (blue LED model)

    I found this ROM at http://www.crashzilla.com/support/WM8650/ROM%20Update%20Instructions%20WM8650.pdf

    I
    also spoke with the developer. This is for the wm8650 with the blue LED light only. according to the instructions, you simply copy to an SD card and flash.

    I've read bad things about using applanet...so do your own homework before using the applanet/z4root method. don't take my word for it, just google applanet and you'll find a lot of bad press about it.

    crashzilla's ROM appears to be the easiest and most reliable. however I haven't done the upgrade myself yet.

    Thank you,

    I have the exact unit I think, software etc. It also came with a case w/built-in keyboard and wired usb mouse. The 2 usb ports are for both of those devices. I paid $98 us, through ***********.

    How can I get a decent e-reader app and also get out of the Asian droid market place and open up the possibilities and uses on this device please? I thank you for any help in advance.
