You need to get ADB working, you're missing the ADB drivers from Google

Install backdoor and reboot.

Backdoor keeps the tablet automatically rooted once you install it and reboot. So, take your OTA and then make sure you reinstall your su and busybox tools before you turn off the backboor.

Steps:
1. Power off tablet
2. Connect tablet to PC
3. Power on tablet
4. Make sure adb is communicating with tablet
5. Install backdoor (on)
6. Reboot tablet
7. Install OTA
8. Install SU and busybox
9. Reboot tablet
10. VERIFY YOU HAVE SU and busybox properly INSTALLED and then Turn Off backdoor
11. Reboot
12. Give me lots of credit

Sorry you're having trouble, please just follow the steps. Do NOT worry about rebooting after the backdoor is installed. It works and yes, the OTA reboots and you can reboot it too if you would like. It doesn't matter. Once you have the backdoor installed you only need to reboot once to lock in the backdoor. But feel free to reboot 1 to 100 times it doesn't matter until you turn Off the backdoor and then reboot. But, please remember to install su and busybox back before you turn Off the backdoor and reboot.

Hope this helps,
Let me know
TD


Example:
1. Install backdoor
2. reboot (Backdoor is now on until you turn it off and reboot)
3. Install OTA
4. reboot
5. reboot
6. reboot
7. reboot
8. install su and busybox
9. reboot
10. reboot
11. Turn OFF backdoor
12 reboot
13 BACKDOOR is gone!!!!!!

PS> Remember backdoor is NOT rooting, it is a way to renter the tablet as root so you can install a root. If you turn off the backdoor and reboot, it can only be turned back on if you are root. Therefore, if you forget to re-root your tablet and then turn off your backdoor, you're SOL.
