    I am curious to compare Build Info between other CT802 owners. Post values from Settings-About tablet or Android System Info. There seem to be differences like functioning gps versus not, root access versus none.

    The CT802 I have examined has root access and no GPS functionality.

    This is output from Android System Info (app link https://play.google.com/store/apps/...1bGwsMSwxLDMsImNvbS5lbGVjdHJpY3NoZWVwLmFzaSJd

    My build info is identical to atir's.

    Still trying to verify or eliminate GPS
    I cannot get any gps program to work. So it must be without.
    Yet, using Andoid System in the "Features" section it shows "android.hardware.location.gps".
    Under Configuration I note "Navigation: NONAV" and "Navigation Hidden: YES".. DOes that have anything to do with GPS?

    My build is the same as well, and have also confirmed GPS, but I have more serious issues. I am trying to apply the same "fix" to resolve the 0 bytes storage issue (which also resets the system after each reboot) but for some strange reason I cannot get superuser permissions. Atlr has tried to help me one on one, but still no go. Here is all of the data on the issue so far:

    I am definitely rooted, as the Root-Checker app confirms it. Here is the exact shell I see when I launch terminal emulator:
    app_50@android: / $ export PATH=/data/local/bin: $PATH
    app_50@android: / $

    When I type the following: /system/xbin/su
    I get: "permission denied"

    The uid on Atlr's system is 10051 and mine is 10050
    The user name is app_51 on Atlr's and app_50 on mine

    Settings-About tablet (an exact match with Atlr's):
    Android version 4.03
    Kernel version 3.0.8+ inet_ph@inetsuperserver #1
    Build number is 03F2-P1-H2-M02-1957.20120417

    Typing the following: ls -la /system/xbin/su
    Results in:
    -rwsr-sr-x root root 22364 2012-05-23 05:04 su

    The permissions seem correct on the su binary directory listing, but the file size is different on Atlr's (looks like the default version from the factory):
    -rwsr-sr-x root root 5692 2012-04-17 17:31 su

    Also, the file date of su on Atlr's corresponds with the Build of 03F2-P1-H2-M02-1957.20120417

    It seems that "something" replaced su for some reason. The only apps I installed that might have done this are: Rom Manager, Super User, Titanium Backup, and Busy Box. I am pretty sure I did not install Busy Box (which is what broke everything) until 2 days after the above date stamp (5/25), so it must be one of the other 2 apps causing the issue?

    Looking in the xbin directory using su* produced only one other entry:
    lrwxrwxrwx root 2012-05-25 10:00 -> /system/xbin/busybox

    Just for kicks, I also tried both software and hardware resets and same results - permission denied. The only things left to try are:

    1. Reinstalling the firmware, if I can find one that is valid/clean and guarantee it won't brick the tablet
    OR
    2. Overwrite the su file with one from Atlr. Also potential (probably less) to brick it

    I am very desperate to fix this, as I would like to keep this tablet, but I only have until Tuesday to return it to the store. There just has to be another way I am not thinking of to resolve this. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Obviously from your experience and atir's it is the errant BusyBox program that this tab doesn't like. Maybe it's Titanium Backup or Rom Manager. Regardless, I would delete Busybox, SU, Titanium and Rom Manager. Reboot. Go to Google Play and reload SU. ? Is everything acting ok? Next put in Titanium etc and save Busy Box for last. Yoiur not going to find a flash for the firmware and forget about using Atir's SU. Get it fresh off Market. I put my money of BusyBox being your problem and ask yourself why does a guy who only wants to watch movies need that program ?? Good Luck
