    ok so as the title says I have been trying to root my brand new zt-180 all day. Firts specs on the zt-180 I have...

    10.2" screen
    256 and 2 gig.
    android 2.2 baseband version unknown
    kernel version 2.6.32.9
    build number zt180-eng AOSP OPENMASTER eng.root.20110425.120935 test-keys

    got in in today.

    so far I have tried Z4root, universalandroot, gingerbreak.

    Still not rooted even with each saying they rooted first try. busy box say not rooted.
    superuser also will not mount r/o I could really use some ideas.


    I have an htc evo 4g I have rooted so this isn't my first root but I'm still really new at it so please walk me through it as simple as you can...LOL

    O ya and I can't get this stupid thing to boot into any kind of recovery mode. superuser needs to be updated manually so I need to go into recovery boot. (i know this may be done when I root but still wanted to mention it) the system will also not reboot on it's own. I have to power it off and back on myself.

    finally got superoneclick to run but failed the test. turns out that my tablet is auto booting into android"mass storage" to fix this every time I boot it I hold the volume button to the right the select andriod adb and boot it that way. the bad thing is still no root or update.....I need root bad.

    Use universalandroot 1.61 and do NOT install Superuser. Should work

    almost seams to be more of an issue with superuser. the only difference I can find between the superuser on my phone and the tablet is the su version. I tried to update it but I get an error message that states " an error accurred and su was not updated. a zip file(su-2.3.1-bin-signed.zip) has been placed on your sdcard, please reboot into recovery mode and flash it to update your su binary." the issue is I can not get my tablet to boot into recovery. how do I reboot into recovery?

    hi
    I am facing the same problems. My tablet had superuser preinstalled too. So I can't even uninstall it :(

    Any suggestions/help would be awesome.

    With all you have done to your system it is difficult to now just what is the state of your system.

    My suggestion is download your software and re-burn your system so you know it is pristine,
    then use universalandroot v1.6.1. NOTE the version. and DO NOT INSTALL superuser.

    I confirm it works with Universal Androot 1.6.1 on a brand new ZT-180 even with superuser pre-installed. Just make sure you select "Don't install superuser" instead of "Android 2.0-2.2 Superuser" option.
