    Hey, folks,
    Just installed Android sdk on C://windows, completed extras/google/usb_driver/android_winusb ( with: ; WINDOW/YUANDAO MK809 %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2207&PID_0010 %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2207&PID_0010&MI_01) and tried to connect the device using a SGS II data transfer cable. It does't work, my Mk809 is not recognized by the PC. In fact, nothing happends when trying to connect. Any ideas about what should i do to make this work?

    You can add this my tip to trubleshootinh guide:
    If you get device not found after typing adb shell
    go to path where you extraced TPSarky-VonDroid-Root.zip
    Copy path from adress bar and then paste it in comand promt after command CD
    comand promt you can get by typing CMD search of windows.
    when you have cmd in screen paste path after CD like this
    cd c:\Users\slaughter\Desktop\[VonDroid.com]-TPSarky-VonDroid-Root\
    then type TPSparkyRoot.bat and hit enter. folow guide.

    When i comand shell i was typing adb shell was geting device not found.
    But afer doing that i now have root on device:)

    Hmm, I've been playing with an MK809 and while I can install the USB driver, adb never sees my device. Shows up ok in Device Manager (Android Device -> Android Composite ADB Interface), no errors/warnings. I guess this means I haven't got the android_winusb stuff right...?

    My inf has the following:
    Code:
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install,USB\VID_2207&PID_300A&REV_0100
    %SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install,USB\VID_2207&PID_300A
    
    (Using hwid details from device manager)
    Running Win7 32bit vm on an intel box... bit stumped what to try now :/

    Yeah, I tried that: no luck. Sorry, should have mentioned. In fact, some more details:
    • Using a better quality OTG cable, with a 2amp AC adaptor
    • Pdanet from link #1 will install, but hangs at the "Installing PDAnet to your phone" step.
    • Have added 0x2207 to <HOMEDIR>/.android/adb_usb.ini
    • SDK ver 21.1, platform tools 16.0.2, google usb driver (rev 7) API 17 (4.2.2) and 16 (4.1.2) installed

    c:\windows\android\ (platform-tools etc under this directory). I've tried a couple different locations, but hasn't seemed to make any difference.

    Ugh, severe case of PEBKAC has now been resolved... in the guide steps around adb stuff, I thought debug mode was shorting pins 6-7 on the device, not just selecting 'connect to PC' in settings. Made a bit trickier by the fact my laptop's usb can't provide the 2A required to device boot, had to go through a powered hub to have a running device connected to my laptop.

    edit: just realised the reason I was seeing a different HWID was because of the way I was connecting; that's the hwid of the composite device, not the mass storage thingy. Leaving this note here in case someone else is as thick as me :)

    Next stop: finless 1.7 :D

    Hey all,

    I was following bothlyn's guide and thought that some may find a video demonstrating how to flash a custom rom/root the device easier. Hope it's helpful!

    Link:

    Thanks.

    I am at my wits end on this freakin stick (Reko MK809). I've spent 3 days trying everything to get this damn thing rooted, with no joy whatsoever. Took me a bit to finally get the SDK setup so that the driver was available for editing, but the stick is never detected. ManthanR, I followed your video on how to get the path entries in (Thanks for that btw, as I had no idea what it was referring to). The only entry that shows up in device manager is a USB mass Storage device, and the hardware id's are different (05AC_8103 or something, it's not in front of me right now.

    I changed the entry in the driver inf to match the hardware id's listed, and I'm able to get PDANet to start installing. It installs the USB driver, then the network driver, but it hangs on installing the PDANet driver (I left it alone for 10 minutes and nothing). I changed the cable to the one for my blackberry in case that was the issue, same behaviour. I need the damn thing rooted to get Full!screen running for XBMC (and maybe Finless, who know), but i'm stuck at this point.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Hello My Friend,

    I have a mk809 II, smart box, and would like to access the root. I liked the tutorial posted here, but I can not finish. The greatest difficulty is in the file TPSparkyRoot.bat, I think not being able to find the folders. As tested "adb shell" did not work. U have any contacts online to do together? hug
