    UPDATE: We have received several reports from users who tried this that it does not work. If someone figures out a way to get this to work, please post in the thread. In the mean-time, we will call this one a "dud." :(

    Here's proof positive that the developers in the Android community are the best in the world. One of the devs over at XDA, Bin4ry, just developed a new universal root method that is specifically for Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices. Supposedly, his root method should be compatibile with nearly all devices that can run stock versions of these two versions of Android. Here's a quote from his thread, followed by some downloads and instructions,

    Make sure you hit up the source link below for more detailed instructions (and for any updates), but here's a quick summary with a download link below,

    Instructions:
    • Download file and extract it from here: Download
    • Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions

    Let us know what you think in the thread!

    Guess I'll be closing my 'Rooting' thread now...

    It is with great sadness that I can report that this procedure will not work on my DK1031/m799ca10" InfoTMIC tablet... but it was never able to connect thu the PC for folder access (so far, at least).
    I rooted it by removing the internal TF card and 'inserting' the things manually...

    Is that limitation a function of the 'iNAND' (non-NAND storage) design... that they cannot/will not set up such a thing?
    Or is it more a matter of not knowing what 'it thinks it is'...???

    Either way, I will watch to see if others have the same problem.

    The 7" eMATIC EGL25BL (m1099ca) DOES and DID work GREAT! :p

    Thanks again! :D

    I got it to work without ANY PROBLEMs... and posted so.
    I am willing to help others any way I can to get this working,

    BUT

    IF YOUR TABLET CANNOT BE SEEN in WINDOWS then it WILL NOT work at all. This Im sure of.
    For example,

    IF your tablet allows WINDOWS ACCESS to the local-disk files, then it SHOULD be able to do it... with DEBUGGING ENABLED.

    With OPs permission, post the questions here and I will try to help,
    else
    you can go to the eMATIC section, eGlide subsection and the ROOTING eGlide EGL25BL thread... I will help there.

    Interesting with the reports of 'no workee' Im the only one who has had success with it? :confused:

    Have no idea what 0.3 issues you refer to... and Im sorry it does not work for you.

    Can you access the tablet's local-disk from usb-pc connect Did you remember to enable usb debugging?

    Just did it on my BRAND-NEW XL Pro 2 (also eMATIC... also with usb acccess and usb debugging... took MAYBE one full minute.

    The only issue I have with Tiny (EGL25BL) is that lack of Pacific Daylight Time... that's about it. :D

    It is beginning to look like I was able to use this method because I HAD ALLOWED THE SDK TO INSTALL the usb driver(s) for Android.

    IF you install the usb driver package I suspect THAT will correct the problem(s) the folks had...

    FYI Everybody! :D

    Great post, thank you dgstorm!

    These 'not working' reports might be Duds themselves - could originate from people who do not have usb drivers installed, etc, and no idea how to fix the issue.

    The file is only 2 MB, a quick download.

    Testing it will be a breeze - adb files ARE included in the package, no need for SDK, JDK stuff. Unpack, run a ''Run_me.bat'' script and watch it work. ;)

    Anyone trying this, please let us know your experience. Thank you. ;)

    You could try reading this thread - Rooted Tablets - what is it, what's the catch, what does it do?.

    It's an advanced feature, if you are just getting started you will be fine without rooting the tablet. It's more for people who want the ultimate power, similar to an Administrator account in a Windows system.

    Wow, don't know how I missed the thread the first time (or forgot about it). This would be particularly nice for Vizio users stuggling with an unrootable, unsupported device should Vizo ever see fit to update the VTab to ICS. In that case however they would probably take the time to fix the hole before sending the update anyway. Maybe one day there will also be a universal Honeycomb solution.

    I wouldn't give it much longer than that. If you want to be extra cautious you can wait 30 minutes but pretty much under all circumstances you should be done by then. Most likely you have already hit a snag.
