Another vote for a SD root solution!
Add my name to the list for a SD root solution, as I have followed all the help files to the "T" and to the "LETTER" and have not succeeded in rooting my device?!?

All I really want to do is:
: edit my 'HOST' file so that I don't get so many pop-up adds.
: add the app "RUN FROM SD" so that I can load and run apps fro the "SD"
: And maybe use the utility "CHANGE ID" so that I can try a few APP's that currently the 'STREAK-7' does not have access to such as the Feb/2012 release of the 'Crackle.com' video app.

Unhappy Rooting non-stock honeycomb
Hi All,
I have a DS7 US4G version which I have updated from Froyo to HC. These are the specs

Android Version 3.2
Kernel 2.6.36.3
baseband 11.810.09.06.00
Build Number 19534

I am complete newbie. I did the previous update with a help of a friend of mine. I "think" this a stock rom, but as my DS7 was a tmobile, I had to get this from XDA. So I am not sure whether it is stock rom.

My tablet hangs and get stuck once in few weeks or in a month. I do the factory reset and re-install all apps through Astro app backup. But it is very time consuming process.

I tried to install the package given in this but it says update not compatible. I think I have to root as previously.

But I have see many advises from experts in the group saying rooting with custom roms is not recommended.

What shall I do?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Manjula

Question Root DS7 updated to HC 3.2 from Froyo 2.2
Hello to everyone,

I'm new in rooting devices, but I need it in order to be able to use ad hoc with my phone. My DS7 originally came with Froyo but recently I updated it with the Dell update. Does anyone knows if the instructions works for my DS7? Thanks in advance.

Thanks.
Please pardon me if I look dumb. But I have already installed HC by DJSteve given at XDA. I want to update it. For that I think I need to root it. The tried the guide here but for that I need Drivers.zip which should be in the tablet. But I can not find it.

Somewhere in these threads and I don't exactly know where someone was missing those same files. Someone posted a link to them. Try to do a search on "drivers.zip" and maybe you can locate the post.
