    1. hello admin and friends

      i just took in my hands this tablet and i have a HUGE problem.the first thing i did is to download mozilla firefox, google chrome and avast antivirus!
      after an hour avast antivirus warned me that the setting of the tablet (!!!) is a trojan!
      i dont know what to do…please help. did anyone else had this problem?
      avast tells me to do uninstall the settings…but i think that i will destroy the tablet….

    2. Hi you all guys.

      In case I’m posting in the wrong thread, accept my apologies and please, if possible, forward this
      accordingly.
      About a month ago I became the “proud owner” of a cube U30GT2 tablet.
      As I am quite new to Android (and tablets) I would really be grateful if someone would be kind enough
      to give me a STEP – BY STEP guide on how to root it.
      The tablet is:
      Android 4.2.2
      Kernel: 3.0.36+ lcp@tchip-super #36
      Thu Jun 6 16:08:57 CST 2013
      v2.03 20130606
      Being Greek, I’m using Greek language (pre-installed)
      I have to admit that I am, at the moment. quite pleased with the device, but I believe that I will be even more, once
      I root it! I have to remove ALL Chinese features as they are useless to me.
      Once rooted, will I loose the greek language setup?

      Please advice!

      Thanks in advance,

      Nick T.
