Hello, all... I just purchased an Insignia 7" tablet from Best Buy model# NS-15AT07. I'll start off by admitting I am a total NOOB! I used to peruse these forums back in the day and managed to root the first Google Nexus phone when it came out. So, I am a little familiar with the process. However, I am having the hardest time rooting this tablet.
First off, I got the ADB drivers by installing PDANet to search for them. Second, I tried Kingo Root and vRoot to no avail.
Kingo Root could see the tablet, but as soon as the process started, Windows 7 64-bit gave me an error "adb.exe has stopped working." Kingo Root just said "fail" and "installADB."
vRoot was a little more promissing. It started fine, installed some apps on the tablet and an alternate Marketplace in Chinese, but also ended in failure.
I have a feeling its the ADB drivers I have, but I have tried to get specific drivers from Insignia to no avail. What other options do I have for this little tablet?
Thanks in advance.
Ed
