    Here is a package to create a rooted ROM for the Craig cmp738a.

    I have included the current stock 2.2 rom available from craigelectronics.com for unpacking and rooting.
    The only requirements for this are a Linux environment (I used ubuntu) with cramfsck, wine and fakeroot. (apt-get install wine cramfsprogs fakeroot)

    Uncompress this archive and run the 'runall.sh' script. It will create a update.img file in the same folder.

    Flash this update.img file in the usual ways to get rooted android 2.2
    I added in a copy of RootExplorer to test if rooting works.

    I haven't figured out how to get market onto the rom yet but im sure someone will.

    I hope someone finds a way to fix the awful looking icons with the white backgrounds.

    I have noticed if you add too much stuff to the image then the device fails to flash it and to recover you need to flash a good ROM to it from windows using the RKAndroidBatchUpgrade method.

    Here is the README

    Files are now uploaded. Here are the links.

    Wow. Lots of good work. Thanks!

    To improve the looks of the home page I would suggest Zeam.

    Google the terms XDA and ZEAM to find the developer thread.

    Works good for me even running the non-rooted 2.2 Rom.

    There are folks over on slatedroid working on the market issue.
