    UPDATE: The commands below worked to root this tablet with stock firmware.

    I've never rooted an Android device before. Scared I might brick it.

    I have copies of "su" and "Superuser.apk" apps. I have Android SDK with adb installed and know how to connect to the device and issue shell commands via the terminal (I'm familiar with both Linux and using the terminal on Mac). The instructions I have are for the M701 and specifically mention the "9-30 firmware update" (but this is the M701-R and I haven't applied the update because I'm not certain it also covers my device). Here are the commands I have:

    Code:
    ./adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    ./adb push su /system/bin/
    ./adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    ./adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/
    ./adb shell reboot
    (note: the "./" leader is because I'd be doing this from a Mac)

    Since it's just changing permissions to allow root access is that likely to brick the tablet? I can't really see how it would, especially since I'm NOT changing the firmware, just file permissions. But having never done this before I thought I'd better ask.

    Ok, there's a post over at SlateDroid that says the M-701 and M701-R use the same firmware, and essentially the "9-30" update (file name is "2010.09.29PM20 : 15.rar" available via a link from the Hiapad website) is really for the M701-R in that it includes drivers for the remote control, with the only disadvantage of installing it on the M701 is (of course) you don't get remote control capability.

    I'm still not quite feeling brave enough to root it, or even update the firmware right now (even though I did it on an Augen Gentouch78 without any problems). I kind of need this tablet working for a school project, so I probably won't do anything drastic until the semester is over. Of course if someone else wants to take the leap to updating the firmware/rooting and report back how it went that'd be great!

    After finding posts on various Android forums claiming the "9-30 firmware" release was either for both the M701 and M701-R, or just one or the other, I decided to contact Haipad directly and ask them. Here's the official word from Mr. Xiong:

    So there you have it. Apply the 9-30 firmware to the M701-R and you will lose the remote control capability, but there is apparently an unofficial "Froyo" test firmware.

    Personally, since my tablet is running fine, I think I'll wait for an official update.

    Ok, finally went ahead and did it.

    I can confirm that the adb commands in my op work on the Haipad M701-R with the factory (#121) firmware. I did it from my Mac, but it should also work from Windows if you omit the "./" leader on the commands. The commands also assume that you have copies of "su" and "Superuser.apk" to push (get them if you don't) and that they are at the root level of your desktop system drive. Obviously if you put them somewhere else you'll need to add the full path to them.

    :D Yep, I've got root! Yay! :D

    Yes, I rooted the factory firmware, #121 MID 1.1.

    The "device offline" has been a problem for others. First I'll say that I run into zero issues connecting my tablet to a Mac, it just works. Windows Vista and Windows 7 64-bit are problems when it comes to connecting Android tablets - in some cases it just won't work. 32-bit Windows XP is more reliable, never had any issues connecting to my old laptop running XP. So my first advice would be to use XP or Mac for this stuff, it will save you trouble.

    Other things that can cause the "device offline" error are:
    1. You mounted the tablet as a USB mass storage device. When you're using adb remember NOT to mount the device to your desktop computer as a drive!
    2. Try to plug into a USB port on the BACK of your computer. Sometimes connecting to ports on the front doesn't work because it treats those as a hub. Which lead me to. . .
    3. Don't connect through a USB hub
    4. Use the OTG cable that came with the tablet. Some Android devices don't connect to adb properly with any cable other than the one that came with them (crazy, but there's a whole thread about that over at xda-developers).

    Hope that helps get you rooted.

    The adb driver is different on windows. You would have to change the ID in the inf file, if I recall correctly.

    Go to device manager, locate unknown device and jot down the hardware device id. Then you need to modify the Android adb USB inf file to match

    Just want to know if rooting is the same as the M701-R or possible on the Haipad M1001 which is running:

    Build MID 1.1
    Firmware 2.1-update1
    kernal version 2.6.29 root@localhost#143

    Has anybody got one of these tablets?

    I'm one of the first 10 in NZ to have one.

    Thanks :)
