Original article is published on this site and created by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).

How to:
1. The tablet should be already upgraded to stock ICS for A100/A101 (or stock ICS A500/A501/A510 for other tablets).
2. Download this archive on the computer. Unpack it to any place.
3, On a tablet: "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "Development" -> "USB debugging" switch on.
4. Сonnect the tablet to the computer (Before connection it is recommended to update the driver for a tablet from here: A10x, A50x, A510).
5. Open the directory with the unpacked archive. Execute file: for windows - runit-win.bat; for Linux - runit-linux.sh.
The root is received!
6. Now you will have to install the following programs:
SuperUser APK
Titanium Backup
At first it is necessary to start the Superuser program, at least 1 time after receiving root. And only then programs that require root access.

ATTENTION!
Don't install Busybox! It is already installed and established! If you reinstall it, some programs will become unable to access root permissions!

Change:
The error of final check of receiving root is corrected (The messaging that "root" isn't received, though it was not so)
Support of A510 of tablets is improved

This method uses the 'mempodroid' exploit and some workings out by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).

List of rooting versions:
New - ICS_rooting_A10x_A5xx.zip
Old - ICS_rooting.zip

PS: I understand English rather badly, but I'll try to help, if it is necessary.
PS2: Command "Mount ro/rw" for directory /system (partition) - works perfectly!
PS3: This method does not work on the A511 tablets

Just tried this and it works perfectly as described; tested on Linux Mint 12, the su binary is even the latest, superuser is required from the market to grant permissions of course.

Thanks for this post ZeroNull.

I couldn't try Crossix's great .bat as we're a Windows free household, and the Missus keeps forgetting her laptop! This filled the gap nicely, will try to see what I can do with memory management now.

Thanks!

Not at all
I was afraid that something was translated incorrectly. But now everything is all right!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. I can now load Siraxis on here and start gaming via PS3 wireless controller.

Not only is this the best 7incher on the market, you can get it for under $300

Definitely allows r/w access, done so myself with root explorer, and root has stuck after a reboot.
