So today we see many tablets that are very cheap and the price starts from 100 dollars and even less. :D

Many consumers buy them and are happy with the stock setting but some of us want to get the most of the device and we now how we call this-------exactly ROOTING :D


But there we get this problems like:
Who is the manufacturer?
Why there is no information about the device?
Why ADB dont work?
and so on.......

My Father picked up a EXPLORE X770 like you can see on the pictures and the specs too ( ist a A13 device ) and cost 80 euros......he buyed it as a christmas present for my mother :)
Its quite fast but even my mother asked me the first minutes of use: Hey can you root it? :D

So I did with these steps:
Download DooMLoRD_v1_Xperia-2011-ICS-ROOT-emu-busybox-su.rar; http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1601038

Download PDAnet (ADB drivers for tablets - how to install is described in the LInk); http://www.topnotchtablets.com/installADBdriver

Enable UNKNOWN SOURCES and Connect your tab in USB DEBUGGING mode, then run runme.bat file from the package.
Sit back read the on screen instructions
The device will reboot a couple of times
When the script finishes it will say "ALL DONE" Your tablet is rooted.

I dont think its worth to try even a JB rom because you might end up without touchscreen working etc......i left it at 4.0 and end of story

THIS IS FOR (ROOT ONLY) ALLWINNER (A13) TWD_MID 2G TABLET w/ ICS 4.0.4
I never could find firmware from AllWinner (hopefully it's OK to provide their site: allwinner & allwinnertech dot com), never could find usb driver(s) & never could get the tablet or my pc to recognize each other (nothing here worked). Frustration & ignorance made me wonder why you have to have a pc to root an android device. I still don't have that understanding. What I DO have is an .apk that successfully rooted this tablet - here's the what & how:
1) dl these on the tablet: "framaroot 1.5.1" (available here courtesy of Alephzain - THANK YOU), a file manager if you don't have one (I have ASTRO), and "Root Checker" (free, google play store)
2) pre-root tablet settings: settings>dev options> enable USBdebugging
settings>security> enable unknown sources
3) run framaroot - in a blink it's done. run root checker to verify. go back into settings & uncheck usbdebug & unkn sources
There wasn't much to rooting this device - I wanted to practice on something before attempting anything exotic on my LG MS910 (MetroPCS).
This tablet already has ICS & I won't be too surprised if there never is a JB ROM that works 100% (I keep reading about touchscreen issues) but I'm learning & little successes like this are motivating.

Allwinner a13 rom

Hi thanks for your post but I have a different problem. After spending my time on googling I managed to confim the model chipset. However my tablet is stuck in bootloop and I am unable to get into recovery mode. Is there any software like restore binary for MMX canvas where you can flash rom while tab is turned off. I just want to install a recovery and turn on the tablet.:rolleyes:
