    I just bought a new 16GB 1GB DDR3 10" Inch Android 4.0 Capacitive Tablet HDMI Dual Camera A10 Core. OS i think is 4.0.4. i am trying to put it in recovery mode, power button and vol down when i do that, it just boots up normally. Then i go into settings and there is a recovery mode section, i press that, it reboots but not into download mode. It will reboot into a different recovery mode that only gives me one option "system reboot now" no matter what i have tried i cant get it into recovery mode, i have read where it says to press vol up and power button still nothing, it seems as though my tablet wont respond to the vol up or down along with power button. Not sure what i can do... any help would be awesome, thanks in advance

    No ideal what you are doing, the tablet is working as expected, This "It will reboot into a different recovery mode that only gives me one option "system reboot now" is recovery mode. Your tablet correctly boots into recovery, so what are you trying to do, apparently not get into recovery mode.

    Honestly I have no clue what you are doing, I root and develop for all types of androids, never heard of what you are trying to do.

    Are you trying to flash livesuite?

    Most tablets are rooted via adb, which doesn't require any mode just requires adb to be installed and working.

    Can you post a link to where you got your tablet, so i can see what type it is.

    thanks for the link, all the links (all android terminal versions) listed have no files listed in the link, and the download buttons on the site you gaveme ask me to download 7zip download manager....https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm..if i press the install it comes up with you havent pressed the white shopping icon on your device, i was able to download the terminal to my gmail acct, and then i went on my tablet and tried downloading it and it came up error message that my device was not an android device, wow i was able to jailbreak multiple iphones in less than 5 mins and i cant get get this device to find out if its rooted or not..lol incredible

    This brings up an interesting question if you don't know how to test for root why do you need it? I suspect it wont be long til you brick your tablet, but oh well I uploaded app for you.
