Hi,
I have been trying to root my device (Olivepad VT100) but am facing quite some issues due to which I cannot reach this step of flashing roms. If you don't mind, could you help me here:

After trying to root using superoneclick, though the initial message after running rageagainstthecage says rooted, it failed to copy su, busybox etc on to the system... due to this the rooting failed.

On further investigation, I have noticed that the OS partition of my system has only 32kb space remaining. Is this normal? What should I do here :-( Help...

Finally, is there any way I can force reboot my system to flash to the rom backup I made, using any means? (i.e. pc adb etc) Is there any way I can force the system folders in?

Note: I am moderately comfortable with Linux shell commands and terminology, Just in case I need to get my hands dirty, I'd be more than happy to (been long since I used Linux, and I am not proud of that fact :-( )

Hope you can help
Regards
Ben

It shows me following:

# cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00500000 00020000 "boot"
mtd1: 00200000 00020000 "misc"
mtd2: 00080000 00020000 "splash"
mtd3: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
mtd4: 00500000 00020000 "ftm"
mtd5: 01a00000 00020000 "hidden"
mtd6: 00060000 00020000 "dbgmsk"
mtd7: 0a000000 00020000 "system"
mtd8: 00200000 00020000 "misc2"
mtd9: 05800000 00020000 "cache"
mtd10: 0ab80000 00020000 "userdata"
# cat /dev/mtd/mtd3 > /sdcard/orirecovery.img
# su
# flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwrecovery.img
mtd: not writing bad block at 0x00100000
#

My problem was that when I want to enter to Recovery mode, than VP7 shown "ENTER RECOVERY MODE" but did nothing. Due this I was not able to wipe data via menu in Android setting or by any tools like SUTL.
