Same here. Followed same process as 1.2, but no result. I really want to run swap but need root. In every other way this one rocks!

[quote name='jm0055;11291]Yep..update.sh looks for .tgz' date=' so I renamed the .tar files to .tgz and it seemed like it updated fine..took the SD card and went to boot, and it's just a black screen for 10+ mins.[/QUOTE'] Not sure if I'll do that!

How to root the device without re-flashing the ROM (by modifying the tgz/tar/update.sh) ?- create a scriptcmd which only load linuxrc into the RAM (no saveenv & nand modification), and boot to that linuxrc- create the update.sh which is "only" rename the original su, and copy the cracked su to the /system/bin folder ..I believe it is more safe than any other method ...

How to root any EKEN or EKEN like without reflashing the whole NAND, or even without modifying any part of it using NAND command :)Download the file from this link : http://u.kaskus.us/5/cw1xz64u.zipREADME.txt :How to ROOT any EKEN or EKEN-like Chinesse iPad without reflashing the whole NANDby [email protected] - June 2010=======================================================THIS METHOD SHOULD BE VERY SAVE, BUT STILL ... ANY RISK IS YOURS!it is your decision to follow this step, or just read it as a reference ...
- extract all files in the rooted-script-only.zip file into your microSD Card script folder- copy uzImage.bin and mvl5_v5t_ramdisk_WM8505.090922.loop.gz file from the original EKEN-M001 1.7.2 update or from the latest EKEN update- run a normal upgrade process, by putting the microSD card followed by restarting the device- if everything goes normal, you should see an instruction to eject the microSD card and device will be restarted- from your ANDROID, open Terminal, type 'su' ... if it is denied, type su2 and then followed by suWHY THIS METHOD IS VERY SAVE?Because it will inject a temporary OS (linuxrc) into the RAM WITHOUT modifying any part of the NAND.Then, any 'modification' will be done by update.sh, in this case: update.sh will :- rename the original su in the folder /busybox- copy su and su2 files into the /system/bin- that's it :)su and su2 files are taken from other forum ...Hope it is usefull,May Allah Bless All of Us,[email protected] - Jakarta.Indonesia

Willo,I hate to be one of those 'people'. that dont appreciate work :)But, Can you put up a proper rom with root / market working / adhocIve personally tested all root methods none work. And I think your rom is the best out there. its fast. responsive. but its missing key points
