    I've tried to follow all the instructions on rooting and installing a new ROM on my new gTablet, but I can't access the root file on my gTablet's internal SD Drive. This thing's driving me nuts. Any ideas/suggestions?

    You shouldn't have access to the file directly. Are you following the instructions here?

    Which set of directions is easiest? I found one on here, one from the XDA-Developers site, and others elsewhere. What's best? Z4 Root/Clockwork Mod/Other? The last thing I want to do is screw up a new tablet and make it a brick.

    Use the ones on XDA untill I get mine posted. I'm about 1/2 way done. Should have it posted in the next day or 2.

    I'll do that. I can download all the files, just don't seem to be putting them in the right places. I'm such a goof when it comes to computer stuff... I just want to get this crap software off this gTablet. Thanks for all your help.

    Thanks for all your help. Re-read everything and found what I was doing wrong (named folders wrong when transferring). Got TNT G Harmony v.1.2 installed. Works WORLDS better than the stock software. Much appreciated.
