Many thanks .. will have a go at this when I can get my ADB connection working to this device! With the exception of getting SuperOneClick to root it, this is the first android I have owned that neither my Win or Lin machines can see easily!!
Edit: in fact, I have been trying to get a connection in both Windows and Linux for the past hour .. no joy 'unknown' or 'device not recognised'
Rom Mnager claims it has written a new recovery, but I don't think one is there now, the device just hangs if I boot into recovery, there is no sign of a recovery.img anywhere when I browse with Android Mate or RootExplorer!!
If you plugged in the usb in windows is there any cdrom appeared? Inside those cdrom are drivers and a working adb with this devices..try to install those drivers first..
There is a rooting guide in xda-dev
to make it easier..you need to change the adb inside SOC with the one inside the cdrom..
Easiest way is download the flash_image and cwrecovery.img..copy it to sdcard..move the flash_image with root explorer to the system/bin..start the terminal emulator
chmod 4755 /system/bin/flash_image
flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwrecovery.img
to boot into recovery while switch off.. press and hold the vol+ and vol-..press the on button..
or download Anreboot from Market..
P/S: for your information this devices support OTG function..all you need have is "mini usb type A to female usb converter"
working with my 500gb portable harddrive(using external power)..Rii wireless keyboard..thumbdrive..card reader..
