Change "," please, sorry mod if you want i can delete it! =$

Unfortunately if fastboot doesn't show your device without any other flashing utility, even with the system dump there is no way to flash a rooted system image if it was created.

Provided fastboot see's your device if it does, if you can provide me an adb dump of your /system folder then I will see what can be done.

Hello shimp well I connected my device on FastBoot Mode and my computer recognized it and it installed a driver named: ADB Testing Interface I dont know if thats a good sign or what should I do, I tried entering into recovery mode but it shows only an android little guy and exclamation quote... so I think it doesnt have a recovery boot I dont know if thats relevant, Could you help with the adb dump i dont know how to get it. And.... I dont know if besides you help me with the rooted system image you could teach me how I do this.... anyways thanks a lot for helping me! I'll keep doing everything you need so we can root this device!

Since your computer recognizes the device and installed the driver and shows the device when in fastboot mode that's a good sign. The Android with the exclamation point is part of normal stock Android system recovery, it just means that the recovery menu has been hidden (You should be able to get the menu to appear by pressing the power and both the volume buttons in recovery mode). To dump /system run the following command:

Code:
adb pull /system
Then please send me a link to the /system dump, from there I will make a rooted system image.

Factory Rooted??
Hey guys I'm new to this so I may be wrong but has anybody thought to check if the Polaroid PSPR355 comes Factory Rooted??? I had a Polaroid Tablet, PID something(I forget the name), which I tried for hours to root resulting in: bootloop, hard reset, root, bootloop, hard reset, root, bootloop, hard reset, about to give up. So I Googled how to root Polaroid PID something (again, I forget the name), and I come to a post somewhere(forgot that too) that tells me my Tablet and similar Polaroid electronic devices(as well as most electronic devices coming from China) are factory rooted due to some Chinese law. So after the last hard reset, I downloaded HowToRoot App to check if my Polaroid Tablet is, in fact, rooted. I press the little lock button(root checker) and I find that, to my surprise, my Polaroid Table is in fact rooted. So all I had to do was download SuperSU from Google Play Store and Update Binary when prompted and I was Super User. Don't know if this helps but it worked for me.
