    You'll have to wait until a Root comes out for it. The root for the CMP738A will brick a CMP738B. I found a good APK site where you can DL it to your tablet and install. But not all newer APK files will work on the Google Android 2.2.1 that CMP738B comes with.

    I havent found a ROM for the CMP738B yet. I look everyday on the net and on Craigs site. Iv also emailed them asking when they will be posting it online. The best thing i would do is take it back to the place where you got it and exchange it for another one. By the sounds of it your CMP738B was bricked by flashing it with the CMP738A ROM.

    Thats great. All the other forms i was reading said that the CMP738A ROM would brick it. Did you use the ROM firmware from the Craig Web Site?

    Craig cmt738b~ not for long
    I'd like to know to.
    I read, reread the instructions and nope. The Android MArket is accessible but will not download any apps.
    WHY would they include the Android MArket App and not let me use it!!??
    Picked up these tablets at Rite aid (their sale price coupled with a refund or two I was owed and they were <$80), for my twin 5yo nephews.
    Price point is good for the destruction they are likely to cause.
    I did expect, though, to be able to have them do sight words and play Angry Birds.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am "rooting" ignorant, but can learn if need be. Reading that there is not a way to root this model (yet?).

    Thanks

    I'm sorry -- but did you say you got Craig tablets for five-year-olds...?

    I'm as techno-crazy as the next person, but wouldn't actual BOOKS have been much cheaper and easier -- not to mention age-appropriate...? ;0)
