mine is 730.

i tried:

frameroot

srs one click

kingo root

none of them worked.
did not try the acer toolkit, i think they would know if they had support for this device.

acer toolkit wont work ever, since its method is only meant for non intel cpu based devices.

It's iconia one 7 B1-740, they are really different devices, please see the specs of the tab & type this out in google: 91mobiles Acer Iconia One 7 B1-740 Tablet

It was just released this year (2014) only.

kingo root works. it roots my acer iconia one 7 (B1 - 740). Try to install generic adb in your pc then run the latest kingo root app.

interesting. i have the genereic adb drivers install which super one click installed automatically. do you maybe have a link to the ones you used? though i think they either work or dont and wont make a difference, right?

i used kingo 1.2.3 and it didnt work. i will redownload and try again in case little things were changed that didnt impact the version number.

or the 730 is different enough from the 740 that it wont work with the one but does with the other. dammit! but your post makes me hope, thanks.

No problem, I was hopeless as well like you when I wasn't able to find out how to root my acer iconia one 7 (B1 - 740) (because maybe it's a limited product only so only few peoples knows about it.) I think the difference between b1-730 and b1-740 is the internal memory, which is 16 gb for b1-740 and 8gb for b1-730. Luckily, thanks GOD i was able to root my device using kingo root. I need to root it because I want to use Link2SD App which is currently successfully installed in my device. My problem now is I'm looking for a custom rom which I can't find any CWM that supports my device.

if the difference is only the internal memory, it has to work!
which adb drivers did you use exactly?
