I have a 7" Proscan PLT7223G, CPU: Rockchip RK2928 1.008Ghz, GPU: Mali-400 MP dual core by ARM running Android jellybean 4.1 with Google Play in it.

(Not letting me post a url, but if you google "PLT7223G manual" you'll get a page where there's a firmware and pdf manual ready to download.)

This is a cheap device (the one I could afford till I buy a better one) that I bought from walmart and I would love to root this device but so far have found no help anywhere on the internet. I know an expensive device has many users and more chances of being rooted, but is it possible to root this fairly obscure one?

I am fairly comfortable with using Android SDK and JDK or any one-click installer.

Can any one help and/or point me to the right direction? It's overwhelmingly info-rich and confusing for an android newbie like me around here :S

I would be super super grateful if anyone can help me root this one.

Thanks guys.

Try installing SRT Appscanner from play store, once installed run that app and please tell me if either of the bugs say vulnerable please.

Go here then:

http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/

If you need help installing adb driver try www.snappea.com. Just install on Pc, then when program prompts you connect phone to PC with USB Debugging enabled and it will take care adb driver for you.

I purchased the same tablet PLT-7223G-4K from Woot two weeks ago.

I can confirm that Cydia Impactor will successfully drop SU into /system/xbin. From there, I was able to get a # root prompt in ADB shell and do whatever I pleased. (Thanks to the persons above me for pointing that out, I was getting a little frustrated with this thing.)

I can also say that the generic Google USB Driver will work for connecting to this tablet. I am running Windows 7 SP1 x64 and had just updated the Android SDK prior to trying various methods to root the tablet.

If you need any more specific information, I would be happy to help, since I have the exact same tablet and purchased it for the express purpose of poking it with sticks.

Thumbs up Success!
@Klown80 and @jfmajo Thank you very much! I've successfully rooted the device with cydiaimpactor without a single hitch. Got SU through adb shell and all! . Took less than 5 minutes!

Am loving this tablet now! It's actually quite fast and smooth now that I've been using it much.

Next stop: how to remove bloatware and make my inexpensive device even faster and show it off to my friends who got expensive ones eh!! Any suggested readings? Please do share!

Thanks so much again. You guys rock!

Thanks....followed instructions from post # 6.....rooted in 5 minutes. These tablets showed up at work too cheap to turn down.....gives me something to play with until the VZW Note 3 Developers Editions get back in stock at Samsung !

+1 confirm for this method of root.
I've got the PLT7223G-K8G, It also runs on rk2928 This version has a 8gb flash and suppose to be clocked at 1.2ghz (more on that in a sec)

Got this at walmart blackfriday came with a KB case, suppose to be a Christmas present for my sister but I wanted to test it out
before giving it to here, I Just got into android my self 2 week ago.

Anyway I used I ran SRT appguard and it said it was vulnerable to 9695860 & 9950697
I tried detecting device in Cydia Impactor but it just said "requested resource not available" file missing?

So I used this USB driver here: ** Wont let me post links / See attached picture**

Cydia Impactor rooted successfully in about 30seconds, Funny srt appguard was still running and complained but it went thru anyway lol
Installed SU, all is good.
I was running WinXP x64

I could not find a firmware download for my particular model.. although you can find a list here:
** Wont let me post links / See attached picture**

Here's a list of firmwares for the 7223g model line
** Wont let me post links / See attached picture**

Now as for my particular model, I would not have bothered rooting it since it was suppose to be a gift however it has 2 problems.
1. The device is suppose to run at 1.2ghz.. mine is locked to a range of 800-1000 (awesome range huh?)
2. The governor seems to be really messed up.. no matter what type of load I put on it I could not get it to crawl out of 800mhz.

So I rooted to get Cpu tuner installed and working.. So now I've got it properly scaling ot 1ghz but that's still not right.

I've emailed CS but im not expecting much given the price and judging from their poor support on their website.
Debating if this shouldn't just go back to the store.


EDIT: Oh ya one more thing.. These tablets do not have a volume rocker.. just power button.. thought that was kinda on unusual other tablets I've seen all had volume buttons, I know that's usually how you boot them up into recovery.


EDIT2: LOL Well, dont bother emailing support.. I've tried twice both times bounced back fialure to deliver.
First time I thought it was because of the screen shot I attached, but 2nd one came back also.
Takes about a day for it to come back though, to lazy to look at the headers which are epic long.
Give them a call monday, probably gonna just return this tablet though.

EDIT3: Well I just realized the phone number is to Canada which counts as international on my cell.
So .. sent a email to their sales email hopefully that one don't get bounced.. If It does im probably gonna return it.

EDIT4: Ok sales address also bounces back, so both the email addresses on their site are borked.

EDIT5: Took it back for a refund, It developed a problem with charging on the 3rd cycle, it said it was 100% but the battery was flat dead and would turn off soon as I unplugged it.

I think the battery was bad I noticed it was warm right before this happen even when not doing anything..
To bad, tablet actually felt pretty solid in the hand.
