Rooting your Ramos Miumiu W9 tablet
Download article as PDF
By Maurice on January 14, 2011 popularity:
So you got your little Ramos W9 toy and now you want to become root? Quite easy when you are using z4root.
Prerequisites

Ramos Miumiu W9 Android 2.1 device with firmware v0.18 build 214043 (other firmwares will work or not, your milage may vary - if you want to upgrade from V0.18_20101019.140808 check this article).
z4root v1.3.0, download it from XDA Developers - other versions of z4root may also work - or not.

Steps

Copy the z4root apk file to a MicroSD memory card
Use the default already installed 'ApkInstaller' (thanks, Ramos) to install z4root by selecting the SD Card and then the z4root apk file.
After installation run z4root and follow the steps.

Alternatively you can use 'adb' to copy it to the sdcard mounted in the device directly. To do that follow these steps:

1) Get adb (available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows) by downloading and unzipping the SuperOneClick zip file from XDA Developers - I used SuperOneClick v1.5.5.
2) Enable USB debugging: Menu - Settings - Applications - Development - USB debugging.
3) Unmount the SDCard by selecting 'Turn off USB storage' from the notification screen on your device.
4) Then run (on your computer):
./adb push ~/Downloads/z4root.1.3.0.apk /sdcard/z4root.apk

You can also use adb to check if you have root access:
./adb shell su

A popup will apear on your Android asking you to grant access. Yes is the correct answer
