build.prop
Hey, I used this and it worked great, with one exception... I didn't back anything up, and let the tool replace the build.prop file, now things are very very broken. Does anyone have an original build.prop that they backed up? Or failing that, a known working one that I could try?

Will it work for Hipstreet Nova 4?
Hi repherb,

Thanks for this great info.

And I have question:
I'm getting Hip street Nova 4, that is basically Titan but with HDMI port. Do you think this method of rooting would work?
I'm not guru, rather advanced user so would really appreciate some help.

Thanks!

Since I found out that only branded (Samsung, Sony Acer etc) Android tablets have access to the marketplace, i got verrrrry curious as to how far i could push this little piece of technology to...

After some exhaustive searching on the 'Net, this is what i have come up with:

SPECS:
7" Capacitive touch screen @ 800x480
Android 4.0.4 OS
4GB built in capacity - expandable to 32 GB with Micro SD card (not included)
1.2 GHZ CPU single core A8 Cortex CPU
512 MB DDR2 RAM
Rechargable 2600 mah lithium polymer battery built-in
High speed direct micro USB 2.0 interface
WIFI 802.11 b/g/n
Built in speaker
Built-in front facing 300k camera
Multiple language format

After downloading Tasselhof's Root, Market utility HERE i was fully rooted and ready to go.

****UPDATE 08/26/2012*****
PROGRESS!!! After rooting and running the market fix with the above utility, i rebooted the unit and ran the android market which i then was able to download and install an app successfully WITHOUT A FC!!!
This problem is a major headache for tablet owners who have a partial root. Try to get an app to install from the market/play store and you would end up with an FC every time!! Not anymore!!!

I will add to this as i find out more... stay tuned and feel free to update me via PM if you find out more than i have here!

request Step by Step instructions
Hello.If it possible can somebody put a step by step Rooting and Enablenig Google Play market useing Tasselhof script. The instructions there are for another tablet and my understanding that some steps are not needed or even be harmfull for Titan tablet.I've used Newtech utility for one of my Titan tablets, and it worked with the exception of Calendar synch issues and i think it's really reduced camera resolution/quality. I just got another Titan tablet and would like to tryTasSelhof script. Thank you in advance.
Also can somebody post alink to an original /clean Hipstreet Titan firmware/image backup?Just incase somehting goes wrong. I couldn't find information on how to create full system back up.
Thank you!!!!

Works on Hipstreet Flare 9DTB4-8GB 9" Tablet however I think I messed myself up. Took 1 extra step too much.

I managed to root, but now I have lost my bottom taskbar, and thus the ability to see multi task, back, volume up and down.

On Boot up I get "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped"

I made the huge mistake and backed up nothing from the start, so apart from my major sin, how can I get my task bar back?

Need a clear step by step as this is my first android.

Oh I can still surf, view app store... but since the task bar went I can't install from the store ( error ), but I can with an apk download from web.

Any advice would be welcome.

I'm brand new to playing around with this stuff so don't make the mistake of considering me any sort of authority on the subject *grin* that being sad I did just use the Tasselhoff utility on the Hipstreet Titan I picked up which worked out almost perfectly so I'll share my experience.

- I'm running Windows 7 64bit and when I hooked the tablet up to USB Windows didn't recognize it or find a driver automatically but there are 32 and 64 bit drivers included with the Tasselhoff package - installed those via device manager and was good to go

- ran the utility itself and performed steps 1-6 and 10 (encountered an error at step 3 but I think that was my fault due to some earlier fiddling, didn't break anything though so I carried on)

- after I finished up I had the missing home buttons problem that someone mentioned earlier in the thread so I downloaded the clean build.prop posted by MetalChef (you'll need 7-zip or such, it's compressed with G-zip) extracted that and used it to replace the build.prop file in the ICS subfolder of the Tasslehoff package

- ran step 3 and step 10 in the utility again and was off to the races!

((I just followed the 10 step instructions in the readme file that came after "Now we use the script!" since everything else seemed specific to whatever device the script was first written for))

Plus the utility itself does have prompts and seems fairly friendly to use.

Hope that was at least semi-useful :)
