I am relatively new to the Android scene, and have recently bought my first official android-powered device. The cruz tablet was just $199 at Best Buy so I figured I culd give it a try. Unfortunately, it's very limited. I can live with the hardware shortcomings (no camera, no Bluetooth), but I want access to the full Android Market.

I believe a rooting is in order. Can someone please point me in the direction of rooting instructions for this device? Is rooting the same for each Android device? I haven't found much info on the net about this particular tablet. Anything I can learn from here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Thomas

There are currently no methods to root this tablet. However, you do have root access when using adb. – Stanley Williams Jan 12 '11 at 14:23

I have a rooted Velocity Micro Cruz T301 (now running on Android 2.2 Froyo). You can find instructions for any Cruz tablet on Slatedroid forums.

So far this forum is the best source of info on this tablets.
