Hi,

I've recently purchased a Huawei Mediapad Tablet running honeycomb 3.2.

I would like to root this tablet but am unable to find any guides on the web.

Any pointers and guides would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Yeah, I also bought mediapad last 2 weeks, this honeycomb really unstable, hang/reboot very often. And when I switched to full resolution 1280x800, you can feel lagging. Disappointed with stock ROM.

Cool Same here...
Just picked on up tonight, not bad hardware but the os needs a kick in the a$$.

Lets get this going people, time is a wasting!

I have beginner modding skills if anyone wants to help me start this?

Recently, I read some reference from some Chinese Forum..
There are Rooted ROMs... and tutorials about how to root by youself..

If you decide to create a rooted rom by yourself..
You need a Linux environment to do that...

Here's how I did mine...
1. First of All, download the latest ROM from Huawei official site..
http://www.huaweidevice.com/worldwid...ctId=3779&tb=0

2. Unzip it, you'll have a folder "dload"
3. Extract the file" system.img.ext4" from the Update.zip
4. Copy the "system.img.ext4" into your Linux Environment..

5. mount the image file like these...
#mkdir /mnt/tmp
#mount -o loop system.img.ext4 /mnt/tmp

6. put the "superuser" binary into the path /mnt/tmp/xbin
#cp su /mnt/tmp/xbin

7. Assgin the correct permission to the su binary
#chmod 6755 /mnt/tmp/xbin/su

8. Unmount the path and copy the system.img.ext4 into the original Update.zip
#umount /mnt/tmp

9. Put the "dload" folder into the root directory of a Micro-SD
10. Power Up your mediapad, when it vibrates, press and hold Volume Down until you see the Android icon, and it will try to flash the new ROM.

11. After everything is done, Look for Super User from Market, you'll see.

Here's the product of all the above steps...

(I was using the official ROM dated 26 November..
and Put the su binary Together the superuser app into the system directory.
nothing else I have done to the ROM..)

You can also flash the system.img.ext4 into your mediapad directly via fastboot

to activate the fastboot mode of mediapad..
1. Connect your mediapad to your Computer with USB cable
2. Power up the mediapad with Volume Up button press and hold until your computer sense it and install the correct driver for it.

3. Direct flash your mediapad like this..
fastboot flash system system.img.ext4

then, reboot your mediapad..
you'll have your apps un-touched, while you have the latest system. enjoy~!

Many thanks squide, especially for the system image. I was too lazy to break out ubuntu...

I now have a rooted mediapad.

However the command below did not work for me.
