Default Temp Rooting - You must do this first

1. Install the ADB drivers, using my other thread here (WINDOWS ONLY)
2. Make sure you have the Android SDK installed and have access to adb
3. Open up a command window (Windows key + R, type cmd and hit enter)
4. Type, with your tablet plugged in:
Code:
adb devices
Your device should appear. If not, repeat steps 1-4 until it does. You may need to restart your computer
5. Download Step 1 and Step 2 Note: Don't open these links in a browser, not tapatalk or the xda app
Download them to your desktop
6. Go back to your command window and type
Code:
cd desktop
7. Write these commands into it, pressing enter at each new line:
Code:
adb push 1 /data/local/
adb push 2 /data/local/
adb shell chmod 0755 /data/local/1
adb shell chmod 0755 /data/local/2
adb shell /data/local/1
adb reboot
adb shell /data/local/2
adb reboot
(Note: Device will reboot at both adb reboot commands)
You are done!
Note: Device doesn't wake from sleep after this and you can only get root via ADB, by typing adb shell


THANKS TO PAUL FROM MoDaCo for this root

ln -s /system/xbin /bin
7. Go back to Root Explorer and navigate to /system/bin
8. Find su and long tap > copy

Default SuperCharge your Tablet with v6 SuperCharger!

1. Download Script Manager from the market
2. Download v6 Supercharger by zeppelinrox here:
RC5 test 2
3. Open Script manager and press browse as root
4. Find your downloaded file in download & tap it
5. Tap the root icon and then hit run
6. Follow the instructions until you get to the "Driver's Console"
7. Type your choice(s)
I recommend 5 & then 20

It'll work on any g9

I mean when you plug the phone into the computer, a device appears with 2 drives. Internal storage is what you want
If you downloaded it to your tab, just move it to the internal storage with astro
