Default So i just rooted a generic tablet...

What cool things can i do on it now? i know it probably doesn't support any custom roms or cwm recovery, but what can i do to make the most of my new root?

its possible you could overclock it if 1.6 is not enough for you, performance control would be the best bet, it has Governors and I/o schedulers on it so you can get better battery if you need. titanium backup for uninstalling bloatware, cleanmaster with root clears out even more, i would also check out xposed framework if you want to mess around with all the options in there, i see that its Jellybean so i would recommend Gravitybox, tons of tweaks there i love to make all my stuff transparent xD

In the Prerequisites of the app it says
Code:
- You have working custom recovery allowing you to make a backup before installing Xposed framework
^But im not sure if my device supports a custom recovery. how do i tell? and what are the risks? if it isn't compatible can i brick it?

so whats the risk in trying to put a custom recovery/bootloader on the tablet? can it mess up beyond repair?

Hi, I am interested in rooting my Craig cmp756 tablet. I am wondering how you managed? Windows or linux? i cant seem to get my pc to recognize the device in usb debugging mode. I would love to help you get the most out of your root if you could please share your method! thank a lot! - Joshua

have you downloaded android adb drivers? that would probably fix it.
