    HI

    As the title states I'm after some info and help if possible
    I have a tablet here I will give you as much info on it as possible, I'm pretty sure its a Chinese brad tablet

    Screen size : 9"
    Operating system : Android 4.0.4
    Cpu : Cortex A8 1.5GHz, All Winner A13
    Ram : 512M DDR3
    Memory : 4GB + SD card slot
    Model Number : KB901
    Kernel version : 3.0.8+
    Front and rear camera

    Across the top you have, Power Button, Headphone jack, Mic, SD card slot, Usb Port, Power jack
    Left hand side you have, Home button, Volume keys

    I have the build number here if it is needed
    the research I have done on this tablet i think the brand is "lonshion" but not 100% sure on that one
    If anymore more info is needed just let me know and I'll see what i can find

    what I'm wondering is if anyone can confirm the brand, and if this tablet is rootable and what i need to do to root it
    It is my first tablet and i would hate to brick it..... I do have a HTC phone that i rooted so I know a little about it but not a hell of alot

    also the other thing is... when I plug the charger in, the touchscreen goes a little nuts when I touch it, is that common with these tablets? and can it be fixed?

    here is a pic of it... if you need a different view just let me know and i will take and upload them

    thanks in advance

    Specs are just like any A13, most likely already kernel rooted.

    charger touch screen issue is normal no fix, sometimes a new rom will lessen the effects sometimes it wont.

    for root download superuser from market and update it.

    if this doesn't work you need to install adb drivers.

    http://www.unlockroot.com/unlockroot.php used to carry a huge list of model numbers and devices they were associated with, but the link seems to be temporarily broken...

    No, that is not common in good tablets. Many people use their tablet while it is charging.
    My Nexus 7 and my iDeaUSA tablets work fine while they are plugged in for charging.

    How about posting the Manufacturer and model numbers of some of these "normal" tablets whose touch screens become abnormal while charging?

    LOL, how about you post the Manufacturer and model numbers of A13 tablets with 512 MB ram that doesn't have the problem.

    @Steve1978 again this is normal.

    thank you so far for the replies...
    here is some update info

    the tablet is rooted cause i can use the app app2sd which you need root access to use it.... but there is no bootloader or anything on it from what i can see....
    so what boot loader would i use.... and any ideas on what roms would be compatible with it


    also charging issue..... only happen with the power pack.... if i charge it via usb.... i have no problems at all.... so I'm guessing its a charger fault with these types of tablets

    you can use any A13 Rom as long as you know how to modify them to suite your device. If you want a copy of the bootloader simply dump it.

    with any tablet you should install adb and back up your tablet before you make any modifications to it.


    You need adb installed and working.

    adb shell

    mkdir /sdcard/dump
    cat /dev/block/nandc > /sdcard/dump/boot.img
    cat /dev/block/nanda > /sdcard/dump/bootloader.img
    cat /dev/block/nandg > /sdcard/dump/recovery.img
    busybox tar -cvf /sdcard/dump/KB901_system.tar /system

    once done,

    make a folder on your desktop navigate there through terminal

    adb pull /sdcard/dump

    your best bet for a screen replacement would be
    1. where you got it from
    2. ebay search
    3. google search
