    Just looking for the easiest way to root this there seems to be various ways of doing this, just want the easiest and safest way so I can get this to tether to my huawei ascend on cm7. Can anyone give me somr quick info to root then what to modify in root explorer to allow the tablet to see my phone as a hot spot thanks!

    I think "move" means get it out of your SD, using USB, for instance (it´s a backup, right?).

    You should ask in that thread for the file, I guess. I can´t help much since I own a MID1024.

    Here is how I completed the rooting:
    1. Make sure you have a micro SD card installed in the microSD slot of you tablet.

      Download dump-recovery-signed.zip from http://androtab.info/files/telechips/dump-recovery/dump-recovery-signed.zip and KYROS7022-8K-recovery-signed.zip from http://androtab.info/files/telechips/cm7/20110821/KYROS7022-8K/KYROS7022-8K-recovery-signed.zip and su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip from Superuser to your home PC
    2. Connect your tablet to you home pc using the cable that came with your tablet and select “Turn on USB storage”
    3. You will now have 2 new removable disks on your home pc. The external SD card is the higher one.
    4. Copy dump-recovery-signed.zip as update.zip to the external SD card
    5. Select “Turn off USB storage” on your tablet and disconnect the usb cable
    6. On your tablet go to settings/About device/System updates/Install system update and select from SD card àStock recovery will be dumped as dumped_recovery.img and /proc/mtd will be copied as dumped_proc_mtd.txt on top(root) of SD card. Keep them in safe place.
    7. Once your tablet has completed the steps above Connect your tablet to you home pc using the cable that came with your tablet and select “Turn on USB storage” again.
    8. Copy KYROS7022-8K-recovery-signed.zip as update.zip and su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip to the external SD card
    9. Select “Turn off USB storage” on your tablet and disconnect the usb cable
    10. On your tablet go to settings/About device/System updates/Install system update and select from SD card.
    11. Once your tablet has completed the steps above you will now have clockwork Mod Recovery 4
    12. We will now create a backup of your existing tablet and install super user.
    13. Boot into Clockwork Mod Recovery 4 by doing the following:
    14. Power off you tablet
    15. Hold the silver back button and the power button until you see the clockwork mod recover message.
    The keys are used as follows Menu=move, Home=select and back=back
    1. Use the move key to go down to backup and restore and press home
    2. Press Home to complete your backup, this will take a few minutes.
    3. Press menu to go down to Install zip from SD card and then press Home
    4. Press home on “choose zip from sdcard”
    5. Press menu until you select su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip and press home
    6. On the main menu press home on reboot system now
    7. You now have super user and it gives you a root access

    CONT.

    Wifi tether piece:

    Turn off wifi on your tablet.

    You will need to download Terminal emulator from the Market.

    Open terminal emulator and type SU and press enter, select allow for super user.

    you may have to kill termianl emulator using ES Task Manager as the kayboard will not come up.

    Open termianl emulator again
    type the following:
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /data
    chmod 777 /data
    chmod 777 /data/misc
    chmod 777 /data/misc/wifi
    chmod 777 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    exit

    you will now have access to the file wpa_supplicant.conf file

    Use ES File Explorer to create a new folder on your external SD card called WIFIBACKUP and WIFICHANGE

    copy data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf to your WIFIBACKUP and WIFICHANGE folders

    in the WIFICHANGE folder, long press the wpa_supplicant.conf file and select open as text and then use ES Note editor

    The changes to the wpa_supplicant file should look something like below:

    I use WEP when connecting to my phone so here is what my file looks like


    ctrl_interface=DIR=/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wifi
    update_config=1
    ap_scan=2
    network={
    ssid="YOUR DROID DEVICE SSID"
    key_mgmt=NONE
    wep_tx_keyidx=0
    wep_key0="your wep key defined on your droid"
    mode=1

    priority=1
    }
    network={
    ssid="your home SSID"
    psk="your preshared key"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    priority=2
    }

    make sure there are no empty spaces behind any of the lines above.

    save the changes to you file

    use ES File eplorer to copy you file you just modified in the WIFICHANGE folder to data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    turn on wifi on your tablet. If you get an error, then there is something wrong in your wpa_supplicant.conf.

    Remember you have a backup file in your WIFIBACKUP folder and it can be copied in at any time.

    if you reboot your device, you will have to do the wifi portion aver again.

    Hope this helps you.

    Yea it gets confusing when some one means sdcard or SD Card. What I do is if I mean internal sdcard I will write"sdcard folder" for external SD Card I either write "Tflash folder" or "SD Card" with capital SD and a space in between. I had that same confusion when I first got this tablet.

    It is confusing and is why I put external SD card in the instructions, hope they make sense to you now.
