Ok, lets say you just purchased your new ViewSonic 10.1″ G-Tablet and everything is stock on the device. (Crappy home application, can’t access the market, etc, etc. Just wait don’t return it yet!!!!) (Updated 4/8/2011), root viewsonic gtablet, how to root your gtablet, root viewsonic.
Step 1. Download DPRoot v1.2.2 from below.
LINK HAS BEEN UPDATED 03/01/2011 (To everyone that was having a problem the file is a .zip extension you must extract the file using Winzip, WinRAR or 7-Zip, the file you extract should be *DPRoot.apk*, just copy that file to the root of your SD-Card)
Step 2. Connect your G-Tablet to your PC via USB
Step 3. Click on your notification icon on your G-Tablet. Click on “USB Connected” and make sure you turn on USB Mass storage. Wait a few seconds for your PC to recognize your storage device. Copy the dproot.apk to the Root of your SD-Card.
Step 4. Unmount your SD-Card from your PC or just unplug the USB connected to the computer and your device.
Step 5. The G-Tablet comes stock with a application called “ES File Explorer” (Thank God! or this would be a lot harder). Open that application and navigate to the root of your SD-Card if it does not take you there by default.
Step 6. In the ES File Explorer app click on the DPRoot application you placed on your SD-Card.
Next Click on “Install”
Your DPRoot application should now be installed you can either click on “Open” after it is done installing or navigate to your app drawer and select the DPRoot app.
Step 7. Now that you are in the DPRoot application just click on the button that says “Root” give it a few minutes to apply everything, next it should Reboot your device and you should now have Root access on your G-Tablet.
