I received a Verizon Ellipsis 7 QMV7A and am interested in rooting. I have tried both Framaroot and Kingo with no success. It seems others have had luck, and I don't know why I cannot root my device using these methods. Does anyone have an answer on how to root this device? Thank you.

Try Towelroot. Make sure you've allowed apps from unknown sources, and Download SuperSU and RootChecker (from Play Store), then download the Towelroot app from http://towelroot.com/ (click the lambda symbol) to your device, install (ignore the warnings and bypass antivirus), then open SuperSU. If it lets you install/update the binaries, it has worked and RootChecker should verify it.

Let us know if it works, and don't worry, even if it doesn't, it won't cause any harm whatsoever to your device.

Thanks for you're response! I did try that as well with no success. Worked well on my Galaxy S5. It's so frustrating knowing that in other forums, no one else seems to have any issues. Thanks for posting.

I see you've already read through this thread, and it looks like nobody's figured it out yet.

What happened/didn't happen with Towelroot?

I did some digging, and it seems that the Ellipsis has a MediaTek processor.

I don't know much about MT processors, but I've gathered that there are some MT-specific methods for rooting these devices.
