    I want to root my VTAB. I understand that I first have to install adb drivers. I believe that I downloaded the correct files that currently reside in a directory named android-sdk\extras\google\usb-driver, but when I attempt to install using Device Manager (Windows 7 32-bit) in a screen labeled "Update Driver Software - VTAB1008" it says "Windows could not find the driver software for your device, contact your manufacturer."

    My guess is that it needs to find an association between VTAB 1008 and the Google driver files and can't do that. Can anyone tell me what to do?

    Here is the automatic way to do it. Go into Settings and turn USB debugging on then connect VTab to PC with usb cable. Then go here Download PdaNet, download and install. Follow prompts and the drivers will be done for you.

    I feel like an idiot. I must have spent 4 hours screwing around with this and your method took 2 minutes - maybe less. J515OP you are a true FG.
