-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Rooting the Mi700 DroidPad

Thanks to "Abasir" for the previous instructions (1st rooting instructions). Lityen has written down an updated and concise method:

Rooting the Mi700 just got a whole lot easier. I used the latest version of SuperOneClickv1.5.5.

1. Extract file content.
2. Unmount SD card. Essential for the process to be successful.
3. Connect device.
4. Run Setup from "CD-ROM".
5. Run SuperOneClick.
6. Click Root and it's all done.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Original BOOT IMAGE by Abasir:

Attached in this post (below) is a copy of it, should you want to recover the original ROM.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Clockwork Recovery for DroidPad by Hucqim80:

Instructions are located here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=167

The latest image for the recovery is from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=213

Direct Link to Recovery is: http://uploading.com/files/e96e3m4e/cwrecovery.img/

To All User Of MI700 Who Have Rooted..
You need to boot into clockwork recovery mode and perform backup from there..

By the way please flash a new Clockwork recovery 2.5.1.2...
copy it to the root of your sdcard..

Copy flash_image
if you already have the flash_image skip this
if not download this flash_image.zip unzip it and copy it to the root of your sdcard..
on Terminal Emulator (make sure you hold it in portrait position)
type:
su
press "enter"
then type the following to copy it system/bin:
cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
press "enter"
..but if you have Root explorer installed..copy it to your system/bin

Install flash_image
on Terminal Emulator
type:
su
press "enter"
then type:
chmod 4755 /system/bin/flash_image
press "enter"

Flashing the Clockwork recovery
on Terminal Emulator
type:
su
press "enter"
then type:
flash_image recovery /sdcard/cwrecovery.img
press "enter"

Backing up your rom image
Turn off your devices..when its finally switch off..hold down both vol+ and vol- and at the same time press the power button..you will be booting in Clockwork recovery mode..

"To move around in this mode you will be using Vol+ and Vol-...to move to a single line press and hold the Vol - or +..release it it move to another line..to select it press the Power button(if you get blank screen, press the Power button again and move around with Vol-and+ until you see back menu button disabled/enabled and select it again with Power button)
I know its difficult to move around in this mode even Paul from MoDaCo asking me how to fix this but I believe you will get used with it"

Choose Backup/Restore from the option..this will take some time..once finish making backup..choose Reboot..check your backup in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<date-and-time>/

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. USB On-The-Go

Work with USB Mini Type A

Devices that work on it (Thanks Abasir) can be read from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=163

I am a proud owner of the CSL Droidpad, bought it in Low Yat KL for RM1699, paid extra RM100 for upgrading the SD card to 16G. Read your review, pretty impressive stuff given the short time span of 1/2 hour with the unit.

After using for about 2 weeks, I am quite satisfied with it's performance given the budget price I am paying for it. Web browsing is very snappy, no lag and fast, love it except I cannot find Flash in the Market. Maybe I try Adobe website first as it is still in beta phase for android.

The camera is a big letdown, IMO as it is useless it low light condition, but then again a cheap and proper camera should out perform even the high end hand phone cameras.

For games, I a surprised that It gave a superb performance playing Need For Speed Shift, really enjoyed the experience.

Hope someone here could provide assistance in rooting this device as my internal phone memory is down to 50M.

Hey, good for you I think you can load Flash unto it, but you will need some technical knowledge to do that.

Oh, one more thing, some have pointed out to me that this is the exact same product as the Camangi FM600 and the Viewpad 7. So if you can find any development forums or developers doing work on them, it will also work nicely on the DroidPad. Have you tried shifting your apps to SD (possible under Froyo)?

Thanks.

Technical knowledge? I am a noob so have to wait for the sifus to try first then I learn from them.

Thank for the info of the other two same models, I keep a look out for it. Hope this thread will come to life with some sifus here owning and experimenting on this device. Yes, I have shift some app to SD card but sad to say most app don't support SD card storage so u can't shift it. Luckily for me the Dolphin HD browser supports shifting cos the memory needed is whopping huge.

Hmm... actually CSL is the first company to release that version of the device. Still do not know who is the ODM yet. Anyway, I would love to see CyanogenMod running off this device.

Any developers interested in this device?

hi there

i'm the first in my town to owned this awsome gadget as i am a mobile phone dealer and been following closely to Samsung Galaxy Tab but when my CSL reseller showed me this 7" droidpad with the pinch to zoom feature and quite high processor built in . i fell in love with it. As i'm using HD2 running on froyo this bigger screen really what i wanted so far .

Really appreaciate if any developer out there interested in cooking ROMs , providing Root guide, or App2 Sd guide and not to forget Flash(as informed by CSL techical staff that current version cant support flash)

wth ?!! my damn HD2 with the same froyo 2.2 can jus run it like that .

Good to hear that... actually, the Apps2SD is available under Froyo too... just that you have to manually do it and only for certain apps that support that function. Anyway, you are right... I wish more developers would support this budget tablet, but then again, how many developers are actually Malaysians who can get their hands on this?

I will try to root it when I get my hands on the review unit next week, but in the meantime, have you tried all the rooting methods available to similar devices (using the same CPU) like HTC Legend and Aria?

just to post some info from CSL Mi700

from the terminal emulator, cat /proc/cpuinfo gives:

#############################
processor : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 5 (v61)
BogoMIPS: 599.65
Features: swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architechture : 6TEJ
CPU variant : 0x1
CPU part : 0xb36
CPU revision : 5

Hardware : QCT MSM7x27 SURF
##############################

so that's ARM11, not cortex A8, i think that means no Flash. but msm7227 include L2 cache and floating point unit; also adrena200 GPU. for 800x480 performance should be quite acceptable.

which market app give the best hardware info? i can try that and post the result here

Yeah, I realised that recently. However, I think we might still be able to put in Flash Lite, like what HTC put into Aria and Legend. They are running on Arm11 also. Cortex A8 is Arm7.

I think for now, the biggest issue is: how to root this phone? Once we can do that... we can try to access the bootloader and put in some custom ROMs
