No warranties, no guarantees. If this ruins your device, your fault, not mine. Consider this a test build, backup important stuff manually to your PC for now (photos etc)

This requires an sdcard installed

Can confirm root as I'm currently running it on my tablet. Bliss did it himself and is going to package it and release it in a couple of hours.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work with this.

Thanks for sharing this it worked great, except for the instructions I needed to use
dd if=/data/local/cwr_ventana_2.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
rather than
dd if=/data/local/cwr_recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
to match the name of your file.
Thanks again for sharing, CWR seems to be running perfectly.
Also for those looking for root the exploit has been posted here.
