    I every one, I hope someone here could help me, I bought a x220 Flytouch 2 10", and I'm trying to install fonts for extensive language support and I don't have super user access, how can I root the tablet?

    Thank you in advance

    I just tried rooting with UniversalAndroot-1.6.2-beta5 and it failed. I have used Z4root temporary root many times on the flytouch2 and a 4GB Gpad G10 without problem. The only time I had a problem with Z4root was with the unroot function (which is only used after permanently rooting; a reboot removes the temporary root). Although I would never try the unroot again, I think the Z4root permanent and temporary root functions work and haven't caused me any problems.

    Hi i am am completely new to the androids however have been looking at them for a a while and want to get a flytouch 2 similar to the one in the ebay link below;

    10.2" ePad FlyTouch2 Android 2.1 WiFi GPS Camera Tablet (eBay item 150521760073 end time 18-Dec-10 13:11:56 AEDST) : Computers

    Will the universalandroot or z4root apps root this device ? Also will it permanently root it or will it just be temporary ?

    Also is the below pad able to be 'rooted' as well ?

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Android-2-2-...70661416254?pt=US_Tablets&hash=item3f04ad753e

    Sorry for all the questions but i am just unsure with this.

    So just to confirm. While you had the O/S temporarily rooted you then applied the permanent root as well? Also are you able to remove the permanent root once installed ?
