Trying to follow this guys thread here. But for some reason I cannot find the emmc folder he's talking about. On top of that regardless of this device being "rooted" it's not letting superuser give out any permissions. Just trying to get a Google Now app on my device but I need CWM to do it. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
The 7L and 7 are different enough that things like the can for the 7 may (wont) work on the 7L. That is the source of your problems.
Why not just use one of the many non CWM Play installers?

Google Now is the new Google search that's competing with Siri. Ok so now I'm doing alright with permissions. I just downloaded the App Root Explorer (available on the market for $ or wherever you can get it free) and it let me move files around without a problem. The only issue I have now is that when it finally does boot into CWM it won't let me use the volume buttons to navigate. Just found out about Recovery Builder for CWM so I'm going to try to get my hands on the image for this 7l and make my own recovery .img with touch support so that the volume buttons aren't an issue. I'll update this thread if it works, if it doesn't I'll have to figure something else out.
So the recovery builder didn't work, I was using the 4.0.4 img from here since it was the same one that should be running on the 7, the tablet that got the cwm working, and since cwm actually booted up I figured all I needed to do was enable touch. Well it failed because a boot magic error, whatever that is, and I don't have enough experience with rom images to just go around uploading ones into the builder till one works. Can anyone here with access to the Visual Land Prestige 7L rom image go and see if you can successfully make a recovery for this tablet with touch?
Sorry for your troubles, but thank you very much for documenting your process. this should turn out to be a helpful thread for others.
That being said, I don't have a 7L, and or access to its specific software.
Does this mean you will need another 7L to get a recovery image?
Well I was using an .img file from a thread here that was for the Prestige 7 4.0.4 ics. I don't know how to take the .img file from my 7L but if you could point me to a guide, I could use that with Clockworkmod's Recovery Builder. Maybe the .img from the 7L will give me better results.

7L image is up and ready for download in the Visual Land firmware thread.
