I was hoping I could get some feedback from some of the more knowledgeable folks here.I've attempted to root the 1.7.4 version of the M003 firmware by doing the following:1. Placing a binary of the su program into the /system/bin folder of the android_fs.tar file2. Editing the passwd file in the busybox.tar file to remove the root password3. Modifying the update.sh script to: * Delete or rename the default su symbolic link to the busybox binary * Do a chmod 4777 on the aforementioned su binaryOf course, whenever I do the flash, either the M003 fails to boot, or it boots and works, but no root. What needs to be done to properly root? Thanks in advance.

No luck. I'll get either 1) a machine that boots up, but the file browser and installer programs don't work, or 2) a machine that just loops through the boot cycle again and again. Oh well.
