Thank you Willierwil, you are a genius!
Now I have my Viewpad 10e rooted!!
I didn't follow all your steps: Factory reset is not required, and I haven't root shell either. - i.e. only step 2 to step 7 is good enough.
For the market, I followed the instructions from a Taiwan forum before this, working all along with no problem.
Viewscene3d is ram-eating. I've deleted it from \system\app
My problem now is to disable the softkey backlight for good. I've tried keyboard backlight controller, leds hack and some others but failed. Can you help?

Many Thanks Willierwill, Rooting method worked a treat.....

I can confirm it works on Windows 7, I used my little Asus netbook and as the poster above, only followed steps 2 - 7. You don't have to reset the pad, which is good, as I had loads of stuff on it...

Now the pad is rooted, can someone please post a list of the Junk files/apps that can be deleted using root explorer. I have deleted Viewscene 3d and the Ask Search App. Thinking of deleting Brief me and Wild Tangent Android Games and other stuff, but want to be completed sure of what I can delete before deleting them.

Thanks..

Default viewpad 10e rooted and trimmed

I've deleted the following system bloatwares:

1mobile market
Amazon kindle
AndroidGamesApp (wild tangent)
Ask search
Briefme
Czcupdate (apk & odex)
Dropbox
Tuneinfree
Twitter
UG
Userguide
Viewscene

No need to worry at all. Just keep a copy of the apk, and you can put it back any time.

Also made some tweaks to the Build.prop

Running smooth and fast now, more free RAM, no problem so far.
It's so beautiful and value for money!
Others had given up too early. What a pity!

Few things that I am really having trouble with.

Iplayer not working smoothly at all and you tube app not installing and wont play from main site.

I did have it working once, but that was before changing flash version and installing iplayer.

Has anyone got both working ?

Maybe this device would have a ics rom made and intergrate iplayer, youtube, ebay, Facebook as standard ??

Anyone got the knowhow ?

I just dont get alot of time at the moment to learn new tricks.

Thanks for this, very useful. Don't know how to tweak the build prop though.. lol.

I agree with you, too many people giving up to soon on this. The first one I bought I had to take back due the screen popping up, got it replaced, tbh, it is the best 200 I've spent. It is well worth the money and well worth the time for a custom rom to be built, either that or wait (forever) for viewsonic to release ICS.

I have installed Netflix and plays the films no problem, however, the pic quality looks like a 16 bit snes game, don't know if it is to do with the pad or Netflix though. I have downloaded the YouTube app, a modded version and it works fantastic, video quality is better than Netflix. I haven't tried iplayer yet but will try it.

Edit: I have tried different versions of iplayer, can't get any of them working for recorded programmes, but live tv works. I only tried live tv on iplayer version 1.0.4, but I presume it works on the latest version, if not, download 1.0.4. BTW, I haven't updated my flash player so it was flash player 10 that was pre installed on pad that worked.

Hi Zen, not sure if I'm allowed to post the link so won't just in case.

Google mobilism market or if you have the application even better, on there, search for 'YouTube v2.4.4 mod with 720p HD playback', dated 3/10/12, It works brilliantly.

Hopefully the links from there are still working, if not, let me know and I will upload to rapidshare for you.

Folks, figured it might be of interest to some, noticed the viewsonic Europe site has made the kernel source code available for download.
