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:

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 !
