[HOWTO][ROOT][MULTIOS] Howto root your VIZIO vTab1008 the easy way and more.
Important Update on Dec 2, 2011: Please do not update to Vizio Update 1.5. This will remove the root as well as disable this hack. According to user felixand in this Post (confirmed by me). You can use Titanium Backup to freeze the Vizio Update Service until a new way arround this is found.
Do not use AnTek Taskmanager to freeze it, or you will be bricked.
Hi, i had a hard time to root my vizio vTab because i was not able to get adb access. Since there are other threads in here that have howtos but none worked for me, i thought I'd give a full and easy to follow guide to do it.
This thread is intended to reflect rooting methods for multiple os versions, but at the moment only contains instructions for win7 64bit, as i had no dice to get adb tuning on my vista 32bit system. If anyone has rooted this tablet using a different os, please write up a howto as an answer in this thread and i will link to your post in this linklist:
Rooting under this Operating Systems:
- Windows 7 64bit
- Windows 7 32bit (above tutorial is working)
- Windows Vista 64bit (please write a guide)
- Windows Vista 32bit (please write a guide)
- Windows XP 64bit (please write a guide)
- Windows XP 32bit (please write a guide)
- Linux (please write a guide)
- Mac OSX (guide by rprr)
Finally i want to add a chapter for after root goodies
, please give suggestions on what you did and think others could need this.
