after alot of trial and error I finally got rooted here is the code I used.
adb push su /etc/
adb push busybox /etc/
adb push psneuter /etc/
adb shell chmod 777 /etc/su
adb shell chmod 777 /etc/busybox
adb shell chmod 777 /etc/psneuter
#mount -o rw,remount/system
#cp /etc/su /system/bin/su
#cp /etc/busybox /system/bin/busybox
#cp /etc/su /system/xbin/su
#cp /etc/busybox /system/xbin/busybox
#chown 0:0 /system/bin/su
#chmod 6755 /system/bin/su
now to work on android market and google apps.
Thanks, this worked great for me. I just renamed su-v3 to su and followed the instructions. My reasoning for root was so I could find the wap_supplicant.conf so I could enable ADHOC support but unfortunately was unable to get it to work like I did on the 7015.
BTW, I have an 8024. I was not able to find a wpa_supplicant.conf in the /data/etc/wifi/ directory but was able to find 2 identcal copies located in /etc/wifi/ and /system/etc/wifi/ but after modifying both (which clearly had my most recent AP's) and rebooting, the same hack that worked on the 7015 does not work on this device. Maybe there is another wpa_supplicant.conf that I need to find. *shrugs*
In the mean time, I'm pretty content at the moment seeing as I received this tablet yesterday (from a Floridina Ebay seller for $150 slightly used) but I have already got the device rooted (thanks again), latest android market, latest flash 10.3 and the latest youtube app all working. This one last piece would close the deal until some mods are released. It sure would be nice to be able to connect to mt DROIDX while on the road rather than finding some free hotspot somewhere.
Keep up the good work guys!
