I've searched high and low and haven't found anything on rooting the new Toshiba Excite AT305. Apparently there's an issue finding ADB drivers that will work with it.

I've had mine for a couple days and other than not being able to root I love it.

Has anyone had any luck rooting this tablet? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!

So far I really like the AT305. It does have a little light bleed but it's not that bad on mine, maybe I got lucky.

The only things I really miss about being rooted are AdFree and Titanium backup. Other than that I'm digging this tab.

The only things that came in the box are the USB cable (with Toshiba's proprietary connecter at one end, full size USB on the other) and the Wall USB charger, rated 5v/2000mHa. The user guide is just a quick start guide with the full guide in PDF format on the tablet

I do really like the fact you can charge this tablet off a standard USB port. I got an external battery for it to charge on the go and it's works perfectly (Amazon Link), and a micro USB host cable for it (Amazon Link). Be sure any external storage you're using is formatted to exFAT (or any other FAT formatting), NOT NTFS. It doesn't like NTFS. If you use an SD card formatted to NTSF it will be read only... Took me a while to figure this out...

Now let's hope the devs figure out root soon!!!!!

I happen to know that one developer has adb drivers now working for the at305. He has not posted them yet but I am hoping soon. Keep an eye on the at305 forum listed above. Hopefully we can get these tablets rooted soon.

There is a sticky posted at the beginning of the main Excite forum.
