Try the Transformer Root Script:
View attachment 5183

For Flash try these direction and use Opera Browser:

Sorry for seeming thick but ES file explorer lets me navigate to the root directory. Do I need to install a root script to be able to delete files such as the Flash apk or can I just do it with ES File Explorer with no further mods?

If I do need to install a script, could someone just detail how to do this? Perhaps the Forum moderator could post a sticky on the front page on how to install ICS and also how to root?

Kind regards

Jon

Have tried to install Chrome beta or Dolphin pad browsers? For some reason google play doesn't install them. Google play doesn't recognised teclast correctly.
I would try reinstalling the latest firmware update as Google Play works fine on my A15 and have managed to install Dolphin HD browser. Dolphin also helps circumvent some of the Flash problems as supports Flash natively.

about rooting A15 with new ICS image:

i 've tried to run adb (script and SDK version) from linux, mac and windows: no os can find the devices despite usb debugging being switched on.

Even though the system recognize usb A15(E6C2) connection and can mount internal and SD storages, ADB can't list the device.

tried all kind of usb driver (rockusb, ...)

how to make it recognizable?

my first experience after upgrade:

- Android seems to run more smoothly
- Voice search doesn't work (connection error)
- Webcam OK

I have also updated to this firmware and find it to be pretty good.
I have the same issue with the tablet being "recognized" on my system so that I can run the root script...
It will require some further research.

hi,
i ve managed to successfully unpack, modify, repack and install the official img with rk2918_tools ( https://github.com/j...ie/rk2918_tools) <-- greats tools!

in the process:

- i deleted all chinese apps and keyboards
- copied Superuser.apk in system/app
- copied su in /system/bin
- deleted su and made a ln in /system/xbin
- verified permissions

unfortunately this didn't did the trick!
so now i ve got a slim clean functional ics image bur still no root.

to resume
- no adb connection
- Superuser + su it's not enough to get root
Here are two sets of "code" that can/have rooted tablets in the past...
Perhaps you can see/use that information to put things in the right places manually instead of through ADB.

Transformer Root Script - Highly successful with ICS

@adb shell mv /data/local/tmp /data/local/tmp.bak

@adb push su /system/bin/su

@adb shell "chmod 06755 /system/bin/su"
@adb shell "rm /system/xbin/su"

@adb shell "chmod 04755 /system/xbin/busybox"
@adb shell "/system/xbin/busybox --install -s /system/xbin"
@adb shell "rm -r /data/local/tmp/busybox"
@echo rebooting
@adb reboot
My Original Root Script - Not usually too successful on ICS

adb root
adb remount

adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
adb push su /system/bin/su
adb push su /system/xbin/su

adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
adb shell chmod 6775 /system/xbin/su
adb shell ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su

Hi,

actually i followed your script line by line to manually put the files and link in the right places with the rights permissions on my template img.


I flashed the resulting packed image: everything is ok, su is in place, can launch SuperUser, can install Busybox &#8230;but no app is allowed to root.

i think that Teclast has increased the security in ICS by disabling adb connections and sudo/su.

Specs of new img:

kernel
3.0.8+ [email protected] #82
build
rk29sdk-eng 4.0.3 IML 74K eng.root.20120409.204624 test-keys

Take the *.img file, rename it to update.img and download it to the root of the micro sd card plugged into the tablet.
The system is supposed to recognize that there is an update and will prompt you to install.

For some reason it does not work for me today... don't know yet why...
(have done that numerous times with previous rom without an issue)
Is this correct "Take the *.img file, rename it to update.img"? My device accept only a "Update.zip". So I tried to rename the *.img file to "Update.zip", but after the automatic file-checking appears: "ERROR - Not a valid update package". The same procedure i have, if i rename the downloaded ZIP-file to "Update.zip".
Can You help? Thanks.....
