Well, I apologize for being an idiot. That's what I get for trying to document a root procedure I did last year, from memory. I have several similar cheap tablets and I misremembered this one as being pre-rooted as I described.

I just re-flashed from stock and re-rooted it. Fortunately, I had left enough breadcrumbs on my computer that I was able to reconstruct the right procedure.

I will do another full run-through within the next few days as soon as I have some time, to make sure I have everything 100% straight, and will clean this up to update the OP. Meanwhile, if you're feeling brave, here's the notes I took as I did it:

Settings > About Tablet > tap build number until it says you are a developer
Developer options > switch On > OK
USB Debugging > OK
Connect USB
see "USB Debugging Connected" notification
Wait for "Allow USB debugging?" dialog, check "Always allow from this computer" and click OK
adb devices

Download pwn.zip here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53407127
Unzip "pwn" from the zip file to your windows current directory

adb push pwn /data/local/tmp/pwn
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/pwn
adb shell /data/local/tmp/pwn

Hear USB disconnect sound

Wait about 1 minute (may or may not need to disconnect and reconnect USB cable)

adb wait-for-device
adb shell
su (should give a root shell)
exit

Install SuperSU from Play Store
Run it
The SU binary needs to be updated. Continue?
Continue > Normal > OK

Reboot

No guts, no glory!

I updated the instructions in post #2 and did another trial run through. Give it a shot at let me know if you run into any trouble. You already have ADB functioning, so you can just skip to step 6 and go from there.

Just did it and every thing worked ! It was fast and clear... Now I wonder, how many devices can I root with the same procedure ?

Great, I'm glad it worked for you!

The pwn exploit will work with many JellyBean devices. Many of the cheap Chinese tablets don't even need it though, as they will either give you a root prompt immediately when you connect using ADB, or after entering "su" to ADB. The trick then is just to use that access to install an "su" from SuperSU or another full SU package, so that you get full root from the user interface as well as from ADB. You could still use the pwn method on such a device, but I personally prefer to use the least invasive method to get the required access.
