Unhappy [Q] Frustrated, bricked - Hipstreet Titan-A

Hi

I've looked around the XDA Forums, and on various other forums. I have a Hipstreet Titan, I tried to root using the Tasselhof's Root package, and it went reasonably well until I selected the option (#3) to copy over the build.prop file. After that I get the Android logo every boot-up. Factory wipe I guess wiped - I don't really have any way to verify. I pushed a different build.prop on, but that didn't seem to take (or make any difference). For some reason my adb shell (whateverother parms) doesn't work. It returns "- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -". So I figure the OS has been toasted. (I didn't have this much trouble rooting my LG Eclypse. :P)

Now, I just need to find an original ROM, or some other slightly modded (rooted would be nice) ROM to get on to my device before I find out how far out my back door I can throw this thing. As this Hipstreet tablet is an off brand (really far off, but hey, I got it free), I haven't been able to find a ROM posted anywhere. Likely I just haven't looked in the right spot yet. Yes, I know, I should have backed up first - but I didn't. As soon as I get an OS working on this, I'll back it up - promise.

I've also tried "adb sideload system.img" using a system image file that comes with the Android ADT kit and the factory recovery mode. That appears to upload the file, reboot the device then report (on the windows terminal) "* failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)' *". The device reboots into the recovery system screen.

So, if someone would be so kind as to point me to a rom file that will work on this device, it would be most appreciated.

PS this is the Titan rev A, when I got the device (second hand) the Google Play store functioned just fine. The person I got it from is not a techy, so I doubt they applied any root or update to it, so I'm guessing it came already set up.

Ok, let me rephrase simply.

Quote:
Can someone with a working Hipstreet Titan, rooted or not, please send me, or post a link to their ROM?
I know people have this device, and it's quite reasonable to assume that not all of them are bricked, therefore this request is technically feasible. Further, with a number of people posting about this device in technical forums, I know people with technical knowledge own this device.

I would really hate to throw out an otherwise perfectly good tablet.
