Hey guys sorry to be pain I think I asked this same question in the wrong forum topic, I have followed the steps above and all the commands seem to have succeeded I installed superuser.apk I can now see that in my tablet as Superuser Permissions. I have installed root explorer but when it starts it says it wasn't able to get root access and it might because it was the first time I ran it, but it says that all the time. Have I missed a step?Thanks

Ok. I send a new message, but I think I can share with other readers of this topic.When I use the command "adb shell", I can not root access (the # does not appear). The prompt shows "/ $." Ie without root access. The tablet does not accept other commands. When I type "su" I get the following message: "su: Must Be suid to work properly".What am I doing wrong?

I'm confused. I followed the directions posted earlier in this thread to root my ZenPad. It appears to work but when I attempt to push a file into the framwork folder I get a folder is read only message. Do I need to open the shell and issue a su command first? Is only the root available to access? Did I do something wrong?Thanks,Mark

Turns out the version of Superuser.apk and su I had installed were not built for Eclair (Android 2.1), after I found this helpful blurb on another forum.
You need to use the eclair version of su and Superuser.apk on zte racer.You can download su-2.1-e-unsecure-signed.zip from here: http://bit.ly/brI0EV
The linked binary from above actually works, but I first had to do this to get rid of the previous (non-working) Superuser app and su command.adb remountadb shell# pm uninstall com.noshufou.android.suthen I repeated these installation steps (use the correct IP address and make sure you have a TCP connection established via ADP)adb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 install Superuser.apkadb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 push su /system/xbinadb -s 192.168.1.102:5555 shell# chmod 4755 /system/xbin/sunow this puppy works.

I have just been using Superuser.apk and Universalandroot.apk and you do not have to bother with all that other stuff. Sometimes I have to re-run the Universalandroot.apk as for some reason rootexplorer and other programs that need root do not find it but it is no big deal to run it a few times now and then to get root access back again.

I can confirm that Superuser 2.3.3"su-2.3.3-ef-signed.zip" works fine.
