I really screwed up! I've done everything right to a "T" except this apparently. I didn't extract the archos_3.2.79.ext4 on the root. I still have it in a .zip. I wish the directions were clear on that, I'm coming from CWM .zips, and for me it is not at all uncommon.... But here I am after the fact. I keep boot looping and would love an idea on how to get an extracted version on the root of my internal. I'm on step 14 of post 3 f.y.i.

Thanks for any help.

Edit: Reloaded stock 4.0.5 and I'm good. Thanks anyways XDA.

Defeated!!
Hi, I am attempting to root my 80 9g 8gb but have had some problems finalising it.

The device is recognised by ADB, the temp root procedure appears to complete properly. Only one niggle, after adb reboot for 1 and 2, windows (7) tries to install MTP drivers but fails. I don't know if this is significant.

Enabling sde seems to complete correctly but when I enter the cmd:
adb shell rm /data/local.prop, it ends in the line :
cannot remove '/data/local.prop': Permission denied.

This seems to be the sticking point.

Regardless, I have tried to finalise the root by copying Árchos_3.2.79.ext4 file to the root of Internal Storage but when I close down and reboot into recovery, there is no option for the developers edition menu.

When I then reboot, the tab starts up normally with no problems.

Any help, in simple terms, would be appreciated.

As an afterthought, how do I correctly close down the cmd window when I'm finished? At the moment I am using task manager to end the process.

You can just close the window, no need for taskmanager ;D

By the way, does the supercharger work for ICS? I'm running a rooted 4.0.5 rom right now and I was wondering whether it was possible or not...
What does it do anyways?

@ mavmaarten

Thanks for the reply. If I just exit the cmd window, when I ask Windows to eject the tablet, it tells me that it can't eject because it is being used by another program. To get a clean eject, I have to stop the adb.exe process through. Task manager.

Try typing EXIT in the command window.

Thanks Telyx, I can close the cmd window without any problem. What concerns me is that adb.exe is still running in the background.I don't suppose it will do any harm to just pull the usb, will it?

Adb is safe and doesn't interfere with anything usb related

I'm pretty sure typing EXIT closes ADB as well as closing the window.

Adb runs as service in background, there is no need to end this process.
But if you really want
Code:
adb kill-server

OK guys, thanks for your input/advice. I have to admit that I was just pulling the usb and it did not seem to have any adverse effect.

Once again, thank you all.
