BEST WOOT WEEK EVER, first this android diamond, and i still got two HP 25" LED screens shipping!!
wanted to share some news... woot!
root, takes less than 10min...
a) settings -> applications -> development -> usb debugging
b) login to the appstore and pre-download: apkatcher,root explorer,adfree and more...
c) on my win7 pc browse to http://www.junefabrics.com/android/download.php and download a GREAT copy of PDANet which will properly install the drivers for THIS PHONE! (these were the only found working, and i tried them all...) No need to actually run this app, just install it, follow the warnings and disregard any scarry messages, these are fine believe it or not!
d) go to http://shortfuse.org and locate, download and extract SuperOneClick
e) connect your phone to the usb, run superoneclick, click root, wait
f) power cycle phone
g) run superuser, root explorer, and adblock, and update su etc.. it all works.
this device really makes a difference, wifi is ALL I NEED, and I will actually embrace MORE of what android has to offer BECAUSE this device is NOT A PHONE. great product, keep the good stuff goin!
p.s. some AV programs will remove/damage the superonclick payload file, so take due notice and disable your AV!
