    Unless the exploit we use on the earlier tablets was patched, you should be able to root using the same tool I provide in the Development Index sticky that always is at the top of the forum. However, while we have Clockworkmod recoveries for all the earlier Generation 3 tablets except the 703x models, those recoveries may not be usable for your model. The best thing to do is after you root your tablet using my root utility, make a system dump of the firmware using the system dump function in the utility, zip the results up into one zip file, and host it on a site like MediaFire. From there we should be able to figure out whether the existing Clockworkmod recovery images will work on the newer tablets.

    If CWM is usable, then you have an easy means of getting Google apps on the tablet. Otherwise, you'll have to either push the individual files to the tablet using ADB, or use a file manager with root capability and move the files to their proper places in the /system directory.

    Thanks Traveller. i think i tried the utility (cobyadb) and it did not seem to take. I'll give it another go and if i still have trouble will report back the issues.

    can someone please tell me the correct method of using coby adb to root the 7048.my driver says device is running properly i must be doing something wrong. do i have to put the coby adb on sd like what he is talking about?or if not how do i run adb from windows vista because the window keeps opening then closing really fast and i dont really know what to do at this point. i got the drivers installed, coby adb in directory and extracted and selected the file named adb and thats what happens.if i am indeed doing something wrong can somebody please tell me what it is and what i need to do to fix it so adb is running properly.

    And I'm blind. I missed this message from Justin. :(

    @pmb1903: CobyADB is run from the computer, not the tablet. As to your issues, did you turn off UAC on Vista and did you turn on USB Debugging on the tablet?

    You're rooted, but you won't be able to do much without Superuser.

    We don't talk about pirating apps here. It's one of the quick ways to get hit with a ban hammer. ES File Explorer has root access and will allow you to copy the files where they need to go. But, you need to have Superuser installed first. Vampirefo also has made available on one of the other threads a Google apps install script that can be used to install the Google apps using ADB. Search the forum for it, but not far. It should be on the first page.

    Also a better alternative to pirating root explorer is root browser light. I use it all the time! It is the most developed and the most updated. So many features. I just love it.

    Why do you need superuser app?

    download su_app.zip

    extract

    adb push su /data/local/tmp/su

    adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk

    adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox

    adb push install-sup /data/local/tmp/install-sup

    adb shell

    su

    chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/install-sup

    /data/local/tmp/install-sup

    also i tried doing a system dump and it said a rooted device was required. but i went through the rooting process and it said sucessfull. do i need superuser or busybox installed to make the system dump? i really wish i could get this adb to stay up

    Busybox is required for the system dump, and the version on your 8048 apparently doesn't have compression included, meaning that the system.tgz file which makes up the bulk of the dump will not be created. Busybox will have to be replaced with the version Vampirefo provided.

    Don't blame us. That's how Coby rolls. ;)

    I have downloaded the new su provided and the new busy box in the 7048 thread but I just can't seem to get adb to stay up. I can get the root/restore
    Window to pull up just fine but I turned off the USC like you said and debugging is on. I don't know what else I can do to bring it up. Any advice?

    I've not encountered this problem you describe with ADB running on Windows 7 x64 or Windows XP. Thus I'm inclined to believe there is an issue with your computer.

    If you have the tablet connected via a USB hub, unplug it from the hub and plug it directly into the computer. Temporarily disable both antivirus and firewall and then try running ADB to see what happens.
