The Wikipad has been rooted and there is also a ClockworkMod Recovery available. I take no responsibility for your actions. This a choice you are making. If you brick your device that's on you. That being said, these procedures have been successful so far.

This only works on the Wikipad 7 inch running Android 4.1.1 and using Windows 7 64-bit (32-bit should work as well). I've not tried this with 4.2.2 or Windows 10, nor I have touched my Wikipad in years.

Download this: Everything you Need.zip and follow the read me(s).

A clean recovery backup! (Props to ordoeb) -- http://dfiles.ru/files/079843b8f

Thanks. Worked for me. Got root and clockworkmod. Still can't see my device in adb in Ubuntu. Trying to figure that out.

The Wikipad needs its own forum.

Talking Finally
Mad props to ordoeb! Thank you and thank you again.

I'm downloading his stock image. I'll install it, make sure it's clean, then upload a copy with a link to share. As promised, I will also release instructions and files for root.

ordoeb, you've done the Wikipad community a great service. We now have full control over a device we love.

We now:
-Have a way to backup the device
-Restore the device (even in some "bricked" situations")
-Create Custom Roms
-And root the device

How did you do it? I did everything correctly and I'm stuck in "waiting for device"

[SOLVED] I placed the original fastboot in the motochopper folder which probably didn't do anything. But since my android drivers are everywhere! I removed the adb_usb that was provided in the everything you need rar and used Google's USB drivers. Worked like a charm!

So, got the zip file, downloading the backup, but there are no instructions or read me in the file. So how do we root the wikipad?

Thanks
