Andrew,

The proper way is to change the contents of the PRODUCT_PACKAGES define to include su in one of the Android make files used to assemble the image for your device. You will need to change the LOCAL_MODULE_TAGS for the su project to optional. Be aware, as others have pointed out, your product will not pass CTS and qualify for Play Store licensing.

We cannot tell and show you how to root because this is violate the CTS.

Here it is:

Under Operating System Software-Board Support Packages you can find an executable that will prepare your SD card under windows (SD_DEMO_IMAGE) or you can use the binary one (ANDROID_DEMO_IMAGE) under linux!

So what you are saying as the SD_DEMO_IMAGE and the ANDROID_DEMO_IMAGE are rooted already or what do I need to do login as root user?
