Well, I followed every step to the letter and RootGenius stops at 77%, the tablet disconnects and goes through a rebooting cycle about 3 times, then I get the always-annoying "Such a tough phone, Root...failed".
All I want to do is root the tablet so I can use the app to allow writing to external storage. I can't write anything to my MicroSD card. What could I be doing wrong?
I got it to work! Unfortunately, It was not with your excellent tutorial. If anyone has the Beats Audio Edition and they want to root, Towelroot works like a charm!
Thanks again. You've been very helpful.
UPDATE: i rooted my tablet!!! i used kingoroot and it works perfectly on my hp slate 7 beats special edition 4501 i didnt have any problem with this program i really recomend it !!
