What I'm wondering is who made it for them because I highly doubt they developed it on there own. Their web site says android 4.1 which is correct unless you buy it from dicks sporting goods they exclusively have (for now) the 4.4 version. I would really like to know how easy it would be to root this thing. I do a lot of hunting and it would be a great tool to have in the woods considering that it has the decoding software for the trail cameras android devices unfortunately cant do it on there own I've tried with my Rooted Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II SCH-i605 and my old Rooted Samsung Stratosphere SCH-i405.

Smile Please help with root ideas/info
Ive tried towelroot with no success and not finding any root build anywhere online. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm not a developer, so taking on the root programming on my own would be beyond me... Attached screengrab of kernel and build info.

Successful root
Hope this isn't too late of news for ya,

I successfully rooted my VU100 on 4.4.2 using Kingo Root. I tried using Root Genius but it got stuck on 64%. I stopped Root Genius in the middle of the root and restarted my tablet with no ill effects. Then I started Kingo Root and it succeeded no problem. I just followed the directions at http(colon)//devs-lab(dot)com/2015/06/root-any-android-device-in-single-click(dot)html

I also emailed Wildgame Innovations to see if they were able to give out any info as into different OS updates, so I'm still waiting to hear about that.

Hope this info is valuable to you,

I was playing around trying to figure out how to create a backup of the ROM and ended up having to redo the Kingo Root and this time instead of showing "VU100" as the device, it showed "86V_HD". I did a google search and found this.. http(colon)//www(dot)androiddevice(dot)info/submission/25358/show .

It seems to follow along with everything about the device and it looks like a guy by the name of Peter Guo made the custom ROM for WGI Innovations, atleast that is what I am gathering....

Now my tablet is in a boot loop because I changed some things in build.prop and there is no CWM recovery for this tablet. Be careful if you decide to root your tablet.
