    Getting rather frustrated here trying to root my Telstra S7-104
    Have flashed/installed the norwegian rom and now want to root it ( again sounds so wrong).
    have tryed "GingerBreak v1.2" but it just hangs at

    Rooting...
    Running exploit...
    This may take a few minutes!
    Device will reboot on sucess!

    Has been there for 25 minutes now

    Also tryed SuperOneClick with no luck, get stuck "waiting for device" and SOC becomes non responsive.
    Tyryed it in GingerBreak mode as well as Psneuter mode. Tryed it in safe mode too, also Tryed the un plug-replug method, all to no luck
    What am i doing wrong ???
    P.S. yes the drivers are installed as i can move stuff from my SD card to my comp and back using the USB cable

    I think the problem may be that you need the Huawei usb drivers. Without them you can mount your sd cards and read/write but not adb. Also I noticed there is some confusion about mounting the sd cards. You don't want to mount the cards on your pc like you need to do to transfer data, however DO NOT unmount the cards on your S7. Hope this helps, SOC worked first try for me.

    This might sound silly but did you download SOC and extract the files to another folder then open SOC in administrator from there. I made that mistake the first time then realized that I had to extract the files first. Hope you get it to work.

    I have the telstra ttt and am running the norwegian rom. Actually I think I was the first to report trying the norwegian rom on the tttt and the unlocking.

    Did the rom flashing and rooting for quite some time hence my memory might not be accurate. I used soc, and I did encounter the wait you mentioned. It was however just because I jumped too quickly and forgot to set usb debugging on. Once I did that, soc on the Xp pc could talk to the tab and the rooting was finished in a matter of seconds.

    You can unzip the files anywhere you want but remember where you put them. Then find your s7 and update the driver. Just need to point to the right directory because it probably wont find it on its own. Be sure and point it to the right folder for the OS you are using.

    Hi guys, just recently purchased the s7-103. Installed and upgraded to 2.2, but it wont let me root it? Tried z4 and superoneclick. The former states 'fu-goo' or something similar and the latter states 'waiting for device'. Any ideas and or attached the link which is known to work with instructions. I'm using win7 so do I still need the drivers. Also, any known custom roms, i.e CM7 or a likes to make this tablet run smoother. Thanks

    Gingerbreak gave me root for Indo 2.2. There's a link on the forum somewhere.

    Thanks for the reply. Gingerbreak wouldn't root the tablet, but got USB drivers installed on an XP PC and it recognised the tablet and then rooted via superoneclick.
