I've rooted it, the goal is ultimately changed the build.prop to galaxy note 1,
Root using zhuodashi didn;t work for me, it doesn;t detect the tablet at all, but plug in ainol aurora2 detected. Seems usb driver is missing/install but not completed/can;t be found.
I try other tablet root method, using combination of chn app called Shodpea something (sorry forgot the name) that app install USB driver and basically an appstore and itunes like app.
After that app installation, I can run both zhuodashi or Shuame (thiese two root app looks almost the same) and it will detect tablet, afterward just click the icon with root android, restart tablet, and you will have root + this 2 chinese app from shuame/zhuodashi. This can be replaced by SuperSU rom market, then uninztall this 2 chinese app using titanium backup.
Do install SuperSU or superuser first before unintalling chinese app, if you dont you will loose root access.
Now, the problem... I felt mine frequently freezing after rooting, esp. when opening Setting menu and App menu, it will just freeze not responding to touch, it will resolved by itself 20-30sec later, but annoying and made tablet felt slow and unreliable.
I dont know this comes from because of rooting or because I uninstall/cleaned almost all chinese apps using titanium backup. Maybe some of these chinese app is needed, maybe... not sure.
I manage to edit build.prop to note 1, but market didn;t seem shows any difference, I still cannot download Chrome.
I'm currently thinkgin about to reverting it back by flashing original rom downloaded from ployer.cn
Hang on... you can't install chrome by default?! I was going to buy this tomorrow. Just how limited is the Google Play on this device? Have you trying spoofing it as a Nexus 7?
edit - Try deleting data for all your google apps (or the relevant one if you know which it should be!) The play store apparently reads build.prop the first time when you log in, then checks out it's data (cache) after the first time.
Clear it and it should check build.prop again and then think you're using a different device
As for potential stability via removing the Chinese stuff, maybe try restoring to the default ROM, rooting and then disabling apps via app management rather than deleting them and see if that helps any? That should help determine whether it's the rooting or the removal of the apps that is causing the issues.
By the way, you don't happen to know if it's possible to do a full device backup (ala nandroid style) by using rkbatchtool do you?
By the way are you using Windows 7/8 x64? If so, the drivers are likely not working because they are unsigned. You need to disable driver signing checks to manually install the rk30xx device driver. Had the same issue with my partners Pipo S1.
