Automatic Root, Fully functional ClockWorkMod image, and plethora of other awesome stuff here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2297246
Thank you xboxexpert for all your hard work!

Step 1. Plug the device in to your computer and uninstall any drivers that may load.

Step 2. Download and update the Android SDK, including the USB Driver or try the PDANet drivers.

Step 3. Add the following line to adb_usb.ini found in your user directory in the .android folder (e.g. C:\Users\YourName\.android\):
Code:
0x109b
If the file does not exist, simply create it. This may require a reboot

Step 4. Load up ADB and check connectivity through the following command:
Code:
adb devices
Step 5. If everything reported correctly in the previous step, run Motochop.

Looks like you were one of the lucky few who were able to purchase this little gem early. Congrats on that. I picked mine up today and I must say that it is probably the best $150 I've spent in a very long time. It's the happiest I've been with a gadget purchase since scoring a BNIB 32GB HP TouchPad for $99 during the firesale. With that said, I hope to see more people coming to the forum with interest in the device. We can only speculate, but I would imagine this low-price and feature rich tablet will get the attention of at least a few developers and we'll get more info then. As for what I have been able to obtain, I'm stuck at the same roadblock as you. I'm bumping this thread for further interest.

I agree. Best spent $150 in a long while. Seems just as fast as my gs4.
Only cons are the screen and bulk, but for the price its a steal!!!
Hopefully it gets support for updates from hisense or the great xda devs start playing with this beast.

Root for this is needed, stat !!!

I'm thinking to sell my Nexus 7 16gb and get this since it has the hdmi and microsd slot.

I'm sure XDA guys will make this device a beast, right?

I just picked one of these up on the way to work this morning. It is sitting on my desk charging as I am trying to get some work out of the way before I turn it on. I will be replacing a Kindle with this and just from eyeballing it my Kindle Seido case may be a perfect fit. I will test it tonight. It also appears that a Kindle screen protector will work for it as well. I would guess the Nexus 7 or other 7" protectors will work also, but I can use a ruler and verify the Kindle one since I already have that device.

Have you tried using the motochopper tool from djrbliss?

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2233852

I would start with trying the root exploits that work on the Nexus 7 (Similar chip set?) and Android 4.2.

I don't have this tablet, so I have not tested to see if this does in fact work.

Random question, since this is the only thread about the Sero 7 Pro I've found.
How are the speakers? I have a Kindle Fire HD and I am pondering about the switch...
Also, can this support 64GB microSDs?

Also, I've heard reports of flawed Sero Pros popping up.
Does anyone have any firsthand experiences with how this tablet's holding up?

Thanks in advance!

The speakers a actually pretty loud. I was watching movies on it last night and was satisfied with the sound.

I saw some random comments (in the comments section) on various articles about this tablet but they all seem to be written by the same person based on the writing style and content.

Mine is holding up great. No issues at all and is as enjoyable as using my galaxy s4 but with a bigger screen. I'm testing out the battery today to see how long she lasts. If she lasts me the whole day of heavy use, she's a keeper.

How's the memory card compatibility?
64GB MicroSDs?
