please check device manager to check a DB device is installed. Your tablet must be switched on and running and USB deugging mode enabled. Also the folder. Android must be placed under c:/users/user name/. Then check device manager again.

I wrote the original artical. Pease press thanks

Hi if this is all true then step 1 has ot worked as it gives access to a DB root fies. Please redo

TheHamster is right! I followed his instructions and managed to root my tablet.
He has done all the hard work!

Hi, I am a bit confused as the folder name is ".android" not "android". so the folder that should be copied from the "USB debug driver" folder should look like this
c:\users\ZBEP\.android as in the instructions. Try this, as a second point I have updated the instructions after modifying kronosrx8's part-7 file. This can be downloaded from the new link on page 1 of this discussion.

Hi I also note that the android folder you have is not the ".android" folder folder from my download, please use this one.

Further to this you can download ES FIle explorer on the tablet from the android market and open up the default.prop file in the root folder of the tablet and it should read as follow, if not then step 1 has not worked. Note that this is the only file that is modified to give access to send root files. As std ro.secure =1 as given from the supplier.

#
# ADDITIONAL_DEFAULT_PROPERTIES
#
ro.secure=0
ro.allow.mock.location=0
ro.debuggable=1
persist.service.adb.enable=1

I think that if you replace the ADB files with the latest from the Android SDK then you can ommit the step with copying .android folder.

This is what I had done before your help and I was able to connect to my tablet with ADB just fine but I didn't know how to root!
With older versions ADB did not find my tablet.

If you want I can send you the files to put them in and test.

YES!!!
Than you very much!!!

Folder ".android" be copied from the "USB debug driver" folder in "C:\users\ZBEP\.android"

Step 1:
1. Recovery + On button = APX
2. Run "TabPCDuke 1 Enable ADB.bat"
3. Reset

Step 2:
1. Applications / Development / USB Debugging = On
2. Connect USB
(Device manager: Android composite ADB interface
My Computer: Android Tablet PC (MTP)).
3. Run "TabPCDuke 2 Send Superuser.bat".

All, my Tablet PC is root! :)

Thanks khronosrx8

Hi khronosrx8,

You are right we should update it to make it easier for everyone else. Could you please download the files required and a short instruction set and I will modify the install program again to suit. I thank you for uploading your backup. Today I copied it to linux and modified it to make the install easier for all moving forward, now there is an install for your tablet as well as a separate set of install files for the Prolink TA8 Asian version, which will make things easier for all moving forward. Actually now the last 3. bat file is not required, it will just mean ADB has access to the root folder. Running 3. will ensure this mode to mod the tablet by malicious means is closed.

I thank you for your help and lets make it easier for others moving forward.

Cheers TheHamster

Hi ZPEB,

Congratulations, I am pleased you have made it through. With the knowledge of yourself and khronosrx8 we are able to make it easier for all. I think now there are only 4 Duke tablets rooted, 2 in Asia and 2 in Europe, but the process is certainly easier as we move forward. Enjoy your tablet now, you have full control.

Cheers Hamish

PS: Thankyou for pressing Thanks

It feels good to be the first!!! :D

So now we need a custom recovery menu like Clockworkmod and a custom firmware like ICS (Android 4)!!!

Which custom recovery is compatible with out tablet? how can I test and find out???

I cant see any reason why clockworkmod will not work, I have used Titanium Backup, but just to backup settings to allow me to reset the tablet back to stock with all apps / settings etc.

Worst case is that you will have to reset the tablet back to stock, and this is pretty easy. So far I have had you do a backup of the tablet, but we have only played with the boot.img (part-7.img), so part 3 was to put the old boot back as per stock settings for default.prop (this is the file I modified under linux). If you are going to play then download the latest install files and run step 1 again as it now uses your part-7 but modded.

You are now in the domain of Android rather than specific to the Duke. If you search for bootanimation you will find many. Unfortunately most are for Gingerbreas on devices with smaller number of pixels. I searched for boot animation Xoom as these are all Honeycomb. You can also find lots of instruction on creating boot animations on XDA as well.

Once you have the download file use ES File Explorer in root mode (go into settings) to copy it to the correct spot. It is very easy I have a nice green Android Man with a green swirl around him

Hi khronosrx8,

I have been travelling so sorry for the delay in reply. What do you mean by flash a recovery image? If you mean recovery.img then there is no need to do this unless you have it modified for such like CWM. I have had a bit of a look last week and to mod it is not so easy and it must be done in Linux. I also dont have linux. but run it off a USB stick to mod the boot.img to allow root. As far as ROMs I have had a good look and none are applicable as far as I can see for our tablet. It requires a Duke tablet owner with the skills to mod to make it faster etc? I have not tried any of the normal root tools for moding, but they may or may not work.

The actual workings of flashing a recovery image is the same as 1- root... which flashes the boot.img It just sends the recovery to a different partition (boot is 7) I have to look at my work PC to find the other partition.

    Root method for Duke

    NOTE please press the thanks button if you use this source as it is only fair to thank the people who put the effort into helping you. This is a new tablet and it took days not hours to collect and test this. Please press Thanks!


    Hi I have had a Duke in Asia for about 6 months fully rooted running 3.2, so it is possible. I have attached all files and instructions in a word document to allow this to happen, but it is as always at your own risk.

    Thanks to Krtonsrx8 who supplied the boot image from "Tablet PC Duke" from Europe I have updated the install files to make the installation simpler for the Europeans. I have also modded the boot file from Europe so now there are separate processes for the Asian "Prolink TA8 Tablet" (mine) and the Europe tablet mentioned in this discussion.

    Modified to make the process simpler

    Para los que tienen tablet síragon con 3G y no pueden salir del recovery mode (APX) luego de rootear la tablet con los archivos de este post:

    1) Bajar el siguiente archivo comprimido:LINK 1 del archivo txt adjunto
    2) Descomprimirlo con Winrar
    3) Iniciar la tablet en APX recovery mode
    4) Ejecutar el bat: HiveGSM 3 reset original boot - non ADB.bat
    5) Pulsar el botón reset de la tablet
    6) Listo ya debería de arrancar la tablet

    Luego para los que todavía tienen ganas de rootear la tablet luego del susto:

    Antes que nada bajar el programa unlockroot: LINK 2 del archivo txt adjunto

    1) Apagar la tablet en funcionamiento normal
    2) Iniciar la tablet en recovery mode (APX) pulsando el boton recovery y power al mismo tiempo 3 seg
    3) Ejecutar el archivo (que ya fue descargado al principio): HiveGSM 1 Enable ADB.bat
    4) Pulsar boton reset
    5) Una vez que inicie la tablet ejecutar el programa unlock root y presionar el boton ROOT
    6) El programa realiza una serie de procedimientos automaticos y procede a rootear la tablet indicando que la operación concluyó sin problemas
    7) Listo




    Saludos,

    Yeap! I would like to know as well! I have the same tablet.

    The OEM firmware name says DUKE_FW_07312

    Which is the most common way to root an unknown android phone or tablet?

    I know how to root my DHD or any other known mobile device (HTC Desire or Samsung Galaxy S).

    But how about an unknown device?

    Please some help?
