Firstly Thanks to jtbnet for root access to the Device via SuperUser. http://www.slatedroid.com/zt-180/4241-root-access.htmlForgive me but I'm going to try to make this simple as I can for users not familiar with ADB.Files needed:Android SDKSuperuser FilesBoot AnimationFirstly Install Android SDK & allow it to Update.Place this folder (android-sdk-windows) directly in your C: DriveNOTE: all files to be pushed/installed via ADB need to be placed in the Tools Folder of Android SDK as below:
Users that have Upgraded to Firmware 818 will need to disable ADB over USB with the following command:Firstly connect your Tablet via USB thentype:adb tcpip 5555Now disconnect the USB Cable:You should now be able to use ADB over TCP/IPFirstly find the IP Address of your Tablet: Settings/Wireless Controls/WIFI Settings & click on your AP to see the IP Add connected to.To install SuperUser via ADB:Open a Command Prompt.Type or cut & paste the following:cd/cd C:android-sdk-windowstools (make sure this is where you have installed android SDK) directly in the C: Drive)adb connect <your Tablets IP Address but mine is shown below> :5555adb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 install Superuser.apkadb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 shell# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system# ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su# exitadb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 push su /system/xbinadb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 shell# chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su# rebootI found that the Tablet would not reboot by itself & got stuck so I used the Soft rest hole to reboot after above procedure.To Install Boot Animation via ADB:Now connect back to your device as below type:adb connect <your Tablets IP Address >:5555adb push bootanimation.zip /data/localReboot Tablet.

[quote name='Laharl;32726]Will any boot animation work?I have a few for my Samsung Moment and I wanted to know if they would work the same as that one you have.[/QUOTE]Think any boot animation will work as this comes from the Nexus One mobile theme' date=' just adb push it & see what happens, if its no good I've found it just boots the usual boot animation.Also have a look around on XDA here: [URL=http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=640231'][Boot Animation] Win7 Nexus - xda-developers[/URL]Search for your phone as they may have one packaged up alreadyJust remember to remove each one after with: adb shell rm /data/local/yourfile.zip

wwilde how did you get the driver to install on windows 7 I get it to recognize the tablet but it wont allow me to install the driver that came with 0708. Thanks.
This method does not use a driver but connects to your tablet via your router/network, that's why we use IP Addresses in the command.There is no USB Driver that I know of for this device so we are connecting through the network.

Hi WWilde,Sorry this may be a dumb question, but when I connected the tablet using usb, do i connect it and turn it on like i'm flashing it? Or do I connected and turn it in normally, because when I do this, it wants to install drivers I don't have. I'm trying to enable wifi adb, and i'm stuck at this point. And when I do manage to get his working, will I still be able to flash using usb. I'm just following your guide, have no idea what all the adb entries mean yet, but very interested in the results, and i'm trying to learn.Grateful for people like you who take their own time, to post these guides and help people like me.Thanks,HerbZ

The above command is incorrect, you are missing to 55's ie; adb connect 192.168.1.101:5555
