I recently bought my HP 7 Slate 4400US Extreme tablet at Amazon.
I was able to root it with Kingo Root APK. No computer was needed. It did take two attempts but rooted on the second attempt.
The Kingo Root APK download installs Kingo SuperUser that grants apps requesting Root access, access.
I tried Installing SuperSU by Chainfire and uninstalling the Kingo SuperUser. When I uninstalled Kingo SuperUser I lost my root status.
So I re-rooted using the Kingo Root APK. I have blocked the Kingo SuperUser from communicating without a password. I have not noticed any malicious activity. Everything seems to be working fine. It has been on the tablet for two (2) weeks now.
Hope this helps for those intending to Root their HP 7 Slate 4400US Extreme tablets.
