    Can anyone help me root this MID7033? Please.
    Android version:4.0.3, Kernel Version 3.0.8 vimicro, cpu ARMv 7 Processor rev 2 (v71)
    If you need any more tablet info please let me know.

    I used the sticky page for the driver and root file. http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...ead-first-development-index-root-utility.html

    * First problem: On reboot #2. Cannot start 'su': no such file or directory. Actually read: cannot stat.. r was missing.
    Fixed that by copying the files in the data folder and putting them in CobyADB folder.

    * And now I get this horrible sounding problem: On reboot #2 Failed to copy 'su' to '/system/bin/su': Read-only file system.

    Tried: putting CobyADB folder on main drive.c: and I am the administrator. Used vista home premium. and used xp pro. same errors.

    Are you supposed to factory reset the device first? or am I missing something? what's my problem? Any help would be nice.
    And the other thread that had 7033 success, the file is no longer available. http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-generation-3-development/43624-root-mid7035.html
    Wish I could try that file..

    AND I will be back. So you will not be wasting your time posting. Thanks for any help. It's driving me insane. lol

    It's sounding more and more like Coby changed the innards of the 7033 and 7035 so the root process in the tool no longer functions.

    Yeah. They must have. Figures. dang read only. Any hope for a root for it soon?
    I found that other file.. it didn't root it either. although it did install the superuser app.. but still didn't root.
    Well, I'll keep checking back for any news.


    Edit: Oh I see now.. the 7033 working root utility is called: A HAMMER! ahhahahaha! lololol
