How to Root the Trio Stealth Pro 9.7

(a.k.a. Trio Stealth Pro 9.7C 4.0)

The Trio Stealth Pro 9.7 is Mach Speed Technologies' second entry into the Android Tablet market. Their first entry was the Trio Stealth Pro 7 and it came already rooted. Unfortunately this one, its bigger brother, did not come rooted.

But our friend Bin4ry has come up with an innovative solution that works on many ICS and JB tablets and phones. And fortunately for us it works on the Trio Stealth Pro 9.7.

His post titled Root MANY ANDROID! [Upd: 13.10.2012] can be found on this forum at:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

Be sure to view his "How to" video on youtube before attempting this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EpkrCq1gfM

You will see in the video he says to test the adb drivers and to not attempt this root until you pass that test. So here is my real contribution in that the folks at Mach Speed have a nearly useless support site that hasn't been updated to include either Stealth Pro tablet in any case. So what you need to know is that the Trio Stealth 9.7 is basically a rebranded MOMO11 Bird edition. Then you need to find a Spanish language forum post that refers you to the following site for the MOMO11 Bird edition (upgraded to 4.0.4) drivers:

Get the drivers here -
http://www.kmods.net/android/drivers_g59.html

If Bin4ry updates his tool, I suspect it will still work. But just in case, I used
I used Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v15

Problems Rooting
I have the Trio Stealth Pro 9.7 and am trying to root it.

I watched the video, noting the tablet portion, downloaded the drivers for connecting the tablet to my PC (kmods.net/android/drivers_g59.html), connected the tablet to my PC, used the drivers, and then followed his video tutorial as closely as possible. I noticed problems in the process when the blue screen terminal did not automatically pop up on the reboot. I had to go to the apps page and start the terminal myself. I tried the onload scripts, but no luck. Still said it didn't have permissions.

What were you referring to about the "Spanish language forum". Was that for the drivers you posted in the link? I have retried the process a few times, but no luck. I'm not sure how you can help, but wondered if there was anything you did differently than in the video tutorial. You selected 2(for tablets) and 1(for root), right? I was thinking of trying option 1 for kicks...

Here is the output on the PC...

You should have used Normal, choice 1. Choice 2 is for two other tablets and is a special case option. Use ONLY for Sony and Medion. I see where you got confused. In the vedio he says (audio) "Two is for the tablet." He should have said "Two is for the Sony tablet"

hi there, Im trying to buy this and wanted to ask you a few questions:

1) What is the screen resolution? 1280x768? or 1920x1200?
2) Have you been able to ROOT it? Not sure why you would as I am sure it can install any APK file and does not have cell service to root to tether with. I rooted my phone just to get free tethering working.
3) Can you install Google Play on it? How about amazon apps? Is installing google apps such as Gmail/Youtube/Maps as easy as downloading the APK from androidpolice or similar and installing them?
4) have you tried playing any 720p mkv movie/show files, I dont even know if it easily reads external drive and/or it has file explorer to copy files to it.

Sorry to have asked you these in this thread but you seem to be the only person who owns it and I may pick one up fro walmart tomorrow.

I just picked up one of these tablets, early this Black Friday morning from K Mart.
  1. The box says 1204x768
  2. I haven't tried to ROOT it yet.
  3. I downloaded Google Play v3.10.9 APK file from here and it installed OK. I was able to run the app well enough to get up a Google account, Gmail,, and link the tablet to it. However, whenever I try to actually download an app, either from the Play app or from the website, the Play app on the tablet fails and gives an error msg it stopped working. The manufacturer does offer is own app website (apps.triomp3.com), with a small minimal number of apps. I also found that Aptoide works and offers a reasonable number of apps, like Chrome and Google Sky.
  4. I haven't tried that yet, but the tablet does have a file explorer already installed.

Question
Well, I did the root and the installation of Google Play store.

While I found the instructions intimidating, it turned out to be pretty easy. I have rooted several of my cell phones, and this was easier.

Some comments:

I didn't need the drivers; neither storage nor ADB. My installation of Win 7 sp1 x64, already had the required drivers.

I actually had to use http://www.estrongs.com/en/download.html (note the "l" at the end of the URL)

Phonesky is apparently a copy of the older Android Market app. However, after it self-installs, it will automatically update itself to the Google Play app. Just give it a few minutes.

After the automatic update is done, open up Google Play, and go to the list of apps already installed. Do an "update" on all apps so noted. This will not only get you the latest version, but also establish a "link" to the Google Play store so that you'll be notified of future updates.

Much thanks to bardell3600 ! ! !
