I know it's a long shot but some of us noobs might just learn something by trying them.

Crashes while trying to get access to the shell
Doesn't have the right adb driver initially
I modified a driver from lenovo's website as per this post - http://forums.lenovo...p/550427/page/3 and this post - http://knowledge.lapasa.net/?p=190
This allows SuperOneClick to get to step 6 but it froze then
I then disabled USB Debugging and it got to step 7
but it then failed and crashed when trying to mount /System/ for RW access
Doesn't appear to do anything useful, it just hangs.
Comes up with error "Failed! No ~~~Fu Goo ~~~"
Will Post detailed results and logs where possible in specific threads

Hopefully the detailed results and logs you post will give the uber-rooters some ideas. Maybe a few modifications to one of those methond will make it work on the TPT (as was done with Gingerbreak for the Iconia).

Yeah, lets hope so! I haven't had very much experience with this stuff but I've trying everything I can think of!
I will be posting adb logcat results for each app shortly.
Just working on collecting that information now!

I think I may try a few just to get some experience.
If you find any other programs/methods post a new thread on them for testing results.

Is there a way to fake a signature on the update.zip?

Not sure how it has been done on other devices but I'm thinking that we need a Shellcode type of exploit that will escalate privileges so that we can change the permissions on the system folde and install su.
