PLEASE HELP!!! Root Craig Tablet

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm a newcomer here but in the last few days have done lots of reading on this site and learned much about tablet pcs. I purchased a craig cmp 738 last week as a surprise gift for my 5 year old. It was a 2.1 version. I read instructions here and successfully rooted it and even had the market working well. However, after days of trying I couldn't get it to use the external sd for storage and it kept running out of space. So then I upgraded to 2.2 and now cannot seem to get it rooted again. PLEASE HELP! I need it full of her favorite games and apps by Tuesday for her birthday. I will be truly grateful for any help. Thanks so much. Desperate Mom

I know nothing about the Craig personally (other than it can be had cheap at CVS), but maybe one of these links will help???

If you could describe what kind of problems you're having rooting it, I might be able to help. The thread you got the instructions from also (towards the end) contains a post about firmware I was pointed towards that was already Froyo and didn't need to be rooted. You just need to add the SuperUser and Android Market tools to it, and it should work fine.

Here is the link to the post.

Trying to root craig

I actually used your (Bhartman) instructions the first time and it worked great. Then I upgraded to 2.2 from Craigs website because 2.1 would not let me store things on sd card. When I upgraded the latest 2.2 firmware, It went back original factory settings with no rooting or market.
