Installing TP Toolbox in Boot Image
I have several Touchpads and I am trying to install The last version into the boot file on all my machines I use Rom Toolbox root browser on all the machines, For some reason there are some machines that it will not let me copy the uImage.toolbox file to the boot folder. I think I know how to do it because I have it successfully installed on 4 of the machines. Just looking for ideas. Thanks

Just for information, I have installed the toolbox on two Windows 8.1 machines and it works great. I am using V42.

Are you sure you have enough room in the /boot folder for the file

Like @cdzo72 said, be sure to check how much space you have in the /boot volume. You've got to have at least 11mb available to be able to copy uImage.toolbox into /boot. I don't normally have any problems with Rom Toolbox Lite. Some people do have issues with ES File Explorer. Here is a link to Root Explorer.apk. Just remember, to change the permission from Read Only to Read & Write before trying to paste a file into a protected area like /boot. Which recovery are you using on all these TP's? There used to be a problem with Flintman's TWRP as it was much larger than other versions of TWRP and CWM. I thought he said that he had reworked it to make it smaller.

Just an FYI, I mentioned in a previous post, v42 is actually smaller than V40 or v41. I still have around 1.5mb available in /boot with TPTB installed. And I do use CWM for my recovery.
