    Use an application called "Moborobo" that will install the drivers for your tablet on your computer. Enable debug mode. Download "Unlock Root" the free version, and run it with the tablet attached to you computer using the data cable that came with it. It will tell you is already rooted, but run it anyway. You might need to run it two times, until you see "su" installed.
    Once rooted you can remove some junk, but do not change the build.prop! It may brick your tablet.
    Until now I couldn't get the play store installed.
    Maybe you can find a method to do it.
    Good luck!

          Is this an Amlogic tablet?

            No, it's a dual core RK3066. It has a very bad screen, terrible cameras and only 4GB of flash.
            You can find it at Amazon for $150, but, IMHO isn't worth it. Any other firmware I had tried on it will result in no touch screen, no WiFi and no speakers.

              Fyi ILooksLike iHave succesfuly rooted and instlled working Android market on my POL Ptab1050.

              As described in below post, had downloaded moboromo unlock root, and could access /system/apps but would not allow to change permissions.

              Tried other link from electrik and get the unfortunately stopped error when trying market.

              Downloaded Android Rootkit tools, used thi to change system permissions to rwrwrw as well as app folder and rootfs mount options. However had to remove a few files in app folder to gain file space.
              Copied vending signed file to app folder.

              Rebooted but still got error,
              Read in anothe post to change the vending name to start with com so changed to com.android.vending-3.1.3-signed.apk
              And changed permissions on file.
              Rebooted, started market (I ALREAdy have gmail account) and it started up ,browsed, and downloaded an app.
