    Me too! I need assistance...I cannot get my Windows 7 drivers to connect to my device. I have not seen any solution to rooting via Windows 7

    Lucid should adb into the device from everything I have read. If so use adb to move the file to system/etc/ as adb with the device in debug mode should give you root access to the directory. Otherwise, after you root open terminal and type "su" and enter. If it doesn't return the line "#" then the root didn't take and you will not have access to the /system/ directory to mv a file into it. If root did take then pay a $ or 2 to D/L "Root Explorer" from the market...(If you have market working)...Otherwise you may can purchase it from the web and D/L it to the device. If you can get it installed you can use it to copy or move the file to the directory.

    Sorry if my response is a bit elementary and out of the scope of what you folks need. Maybe I don't understand your issue.

    Thanks! I'll try this, i can't believe i didn't think of this. It is pretty easy to mount the internal 4 G of memory to my own computer then move the files around to the proper places, basicly digging around in the root.

    O and yep, i get the superuser priveledges (#), after typing in su, like you said. No problem there. I think the problem is i need to get the files to the right places, ill keep working at it.

    Tried that: flash_image not found

    Which i clearly put it on the sd card, i duplicated the exact instructions on the video, so i know i did it right, there shouldn't be any issues. O and by the way, im snowninja88 on youtube, so ill just ask Q's here instead of on your video comments.
    Thanks for the support :)

    Have you guys not read this entire thread? The new update doesn't have that binary on it. You need to put a copy from the old update.zip on your tablet.

    I hate repeating the same instructions over and over...

    @cashdude: go back and read my instructions again. The only thing you need out of that archive is flash_image.

    Sorry about that, yes i did just a little bit ago and am now doing what you instructed. Thanks for the help. Disregard my last post (s) or delete them if you want. I did read the entire thread yesterday, but i couldn't find the file you posted until recently, i don't know how i missed it, my fault, sorry about that.

    I just wanted to thank those of you that have taken the time to come explain the changes to the rest of us here. It looks as if there really is no great improvement over what we have currently, just an attempt to lock down root.

    I apologize but I seem to be missing something. I cannot find the old update.zip file. I cannot get adb to work because the usb driver (as described in another thread) will not recognize my tablet. So 1. where is the old update.zip file, and 2. How do I get my Windows 7 PC to recognize my coby tablet. It is in usb debugging mode and it is rooted via z4root. Thanks

    Ok found the old update. Now I need help with connecting my tablet to my Windows 7 PC and use ADB to move the files to where they need to go. Thanks
