Rooting: please stay on topic


Jun 11, 2011
I have a generation 2 4Gig from eBay. After three months of trying, I've been unable to root this thing. I try UniversalAndroot and all I get is dead wi-fi.

Have u tried....?
Connecting the pad on the same network...
...from other computer's Terminal...
...suppossing that u have adb working...:
Adb connect tcpip "PAD'S IP":5555 or very similar.
Check if there is any device with: adb devices
Once u type adb shell... it should get inside da pad. As root already probably.
Then, u need to remount the unit as read nd write:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

Right now, u can do anything to it...
There are lots of forums out there that explain how to root your zt180 with adb.
I,ve done it yesterday for first time, and it took me just a week.
In one forum they tell u tu download a su file, and give u instructions to copy it inside /system/xbin and /system/bin
With commands like... adb push .... chmod 755 ... blah blah blah!
Do a research in duckduckgo and try to find it. If it,s difficult 4 u... let me know and i,ll send u some links that i,ve readed.
I can root my zt180 with universal androot, and root explorer works ok, beeing able to remount as rw or ro with a finger,s hit!
i,ve written all this by memory. Work it out yourself a bit, research it up... and if u r still locked... i,ll be more specific. Good luck!!
