I want to install ArchiLinux on my multipad. I have tried to root my Prestigio MultiPad (model: PMP3670B) using some rooting apps I had found on the Internet, but all of them have requested an adb driver, which I have problems installing on my XP because it won't autodetect the device. As mentioned in all the instructions I had set my device to USB Debugging Mode and to MTP Mode.
I downloaded SDK and, using a couple of instructions, including some on modifying android_winusb.inf and adb_usb.inf, several times tried to install it manually. The Device Manager displayed MultiPad as two devices (MTP and Android), that had an icon with a yellow question mark. The best I could achieve was making the Add Hardware Wizard detect the MTP (it still wont detect the Android).
Using The command prompt I opened platform tools folder and executed
adb start-server and
adb device commands, but the "List of devices attached" was empty.
Also when I tried unchecking the USB Debugging Mode on the Multipad and my XP started displaying it as a Portable Media Player.
This is my first tabled, so I'm really inexperienced. I guess I'm making a mistake somewhere, but I can't figure out where.
Maybe someone has rooted this or similar Prestigio MultiPad on XP and could help me?
