Make sure Android Phone shows in Device Manager and not just TPT under Portable Devices. If the TPT is only shown as a Portable Device in Device Manager, then delete it under Portable Devices and then scan for hardware changes and reinstall the ADB driver from Lenove and Android Phone should show up with the Thinkpad Tablet listed under it as well as the TPT listed under Portable Devices. After the Android Phone shows up in Device Manager, you should be able to complete the root exploit.
On my office system, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit it shows both in Device Manager, I will check it on my laptop when I have a chance and see if it shows the same. IT Service Professional, I Just Want a Device to Be Productive
Ron,I honestly don't know what to tell you. I've tried it on multiple computers and here is what I'll recommend.Disable Lock screen. It is is Settings > Location & security > Lock screen > switch to off.Leave USB settings alone. Settings > USB settings > Ask on connection You should still have adb access even if you have it on "ask on connection." I would personally hit cancel, leave it, or select low-charge-only. Don't select MTP.I've backed up my important files. Went ahead and did a factory reset on my device, it is indeed running 0075_US. After first boot, tested adb shell access and attempted the root exploit again. Unfortunately, it failed again in the same spot as before. Once the option to reboot is given, the TPT reboots, script attempts to install root tools and it fails due to the device rebooting again. (At this point the tablet is in a constant bootloop upon OS boot it waits a few seconds and reboots).I've booted to recovery and did a adb push of a blank local.prop to populate upon next boot and everything is fine now. That is device isn't in a state of bootloop, but I am not rooted Just an update. Cheers.

I just wanted to add that I always clicked the MTP option when the menu popped up. I got the ADB driver thing working fine and rooted my tablet without any issues. I'm on Windows 7 64 bit by the way. Phish
