    Caveat: While I think the process may work, we don't know the side effects, if any. If I recall correctly, the last time I checked, some devices bricked if a factory restore was done. This may be due to the fact that a restore image is not created that matches the ROM after the root process. Without CWM or other method to backup and restore and not having any flashbacks ROMs, one is up the creek should something go amiss down the road.

    For past discussion of this method see http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/sh...d.php?p=167703

    When is read the thread on XDA, it didn't seem apparent that this process actually worked. Like Mike said, without CWM, etc., I'd be very hesitant to try this until it's been validated.

    Well, first thing in my mind was to check the root status after a reboot.
    I did a reboot and it's still rooted with rw access.

    You can build them all you want, if the boot loader isn't unlocked it won't matter, just brick.

    Okay, so what does that allow besides manually deleting unwanted pre-installed apps? And what happens if you mess up and uninstall the wrong app or something else? I'm not knocking it, I'm just curious. I'm sure many are thinking it's the first step in eventually getting custom ROMs and that may be true, but it seems the bootloader is still the main issue.

    As Pio_Masaki points out here http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/sh...d.php?p=173253

    Rooting is only 30% of the battle.....
    The other 70% is the really difficult part.

    Is the read write true read write though? If you edit the default.prop will it actually save, or still be the edited version after a reboot. The same with the build.prop. Many tablet have a false root because in the kernel befault prop is set to ro.secure=1 which means any changes to root files is not allowed. Some root methods will eve make it appear you have edited the file because there is a .bak file after you save. reboot and it is gone the the original file is back unedited.

    If it is indeed a true root even without the unlocked bootloader it could allow for some tweaking and custom MOD.

    I remember the rumor about the restore causing a brick, but I find that hard to believe, but not impossible.
