Looks like the mediapad system rom n radio does not support 4G. Guess you would need to wait for springboard rom.
Follow the long steps to extract system image and put in the su binary in linux. Package it back n flashed it back to ur springboard via fastboot.

Is it possible to include the su binary to the springboard dump seen in one of the forums here ? Me no good with linux.

Just to check either sprinboard fastboot is locked or not.
Do you manage to just straight away flash the mediapad system rom onto the springboard system rom using the fastboot flash system command line ?

Im waiting for my mediapad, so some questions:

Is it possible to restore it to original after rooting it?

Theres two methods in this thread, fastboot (not used that before)
and the dload folder

Is it enough to just update with that folder and its rooted?

I have the Huawei U8800, dont know if the update procedure is the same. (dload folder on sdcard and power up with volume keys pressed)

The 3g should work with any carrier\region?

dload method is the easiest

it will replace the whole rom. The prerooted rom got su binary. You wuld need to downlod superuser from market.

Fastboot method only replace the system image so your insalled app and settings would remain.

As far as i know there is no carrier lock on mediapad.it should work on any carrier.

Download boot.img from here:http://bbs.31pad.com/thread-2-1-1.html
flash boot.img use fastboot or alternate boot.img in the update.zip with this then reflash update.zip by puting it in dload directory in tf card.

Then download root_cf.rar from http://bbs.31pad.com/thread-4-1-1.html
unrar it and put sanixupdate directory in mediapad inner card.
restart mediapad.
