For other phones/tables, it's probably best to use http://goo-inside.me/superuser/Super...ghi-signed.zip - for some reason this doesn't work on the A1 - it fails with error code 0, but I never looked into why this is.

Must phones and devices have custom built insecure kernels (root) built for them. Only exploits like super one click work over different devices. and you risk bricking your device by playing with anything you are not sure how it works.

Lucky there are very few devices that some one has not rooted one way or another.

Not spell checked nor checked for grammar on my genetic phone

It could be that it works for some other devices too, but i wrote it for A1 only and I never tested it on other devices.

Sorry, but what is the latest stock build and kernel version.
Thanks

Update:
now running 015_2643_us build w/2.6.35.7 kernel.
cwm-5.0.2.7-rev3-ideapad-a1 - awesome Lepad_A1_root.zip to get root (post#19)

That is all

Sent from my A1_07 using XDA

Has anyone tried using GrooveIP on A1? I set it up, but the call quality is really bad. I'm wondering if anyone had any success with this. I'm using a rooted stock ROM. I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.

so, got it done.

This is how i did it.

For all those ideapad A1 owners who have installed the system update and can't get the tablet rooted from SuperOneClick.

You need to use A1-rooter.

1."www[dot]a1.cu2.at/A1_rooter[dot]zip" ----Download this zip file.

[replace 'dot' with '.']


2.put this zip file in your internal storage sdcard such that the full path is /sdacard/A1_rooter

3."www[dot]doc.ic.ac.uk/~grm08/ideapad/cwm-5.0.2.7-rev3-ideapad-a1[dot]zip" ----------- cwm-5.0.2.7-rev3-ideapad-a1.zip

Download the file "cwm-5.0.2.7-rev3-ideapad-a1.zip" from the above link

4. Copy this file to the root of the internal SD card and rename it to update.zip (so the full path should be /sdcard/update.zip)
5. Power down the Ideapad.
6. Hold down volume down and turn the power back on, keeping volume down held until the tablet boots up to an image of an arrow out of a box with an android (this is the stock recovery).
7. Wait whilst Clockworkmod recovery installs. The progress bar should fill up.
6. Afterwards you should see a blue menu of clockmoderecovery.
7. goto install zip
8. install zip from internal storage
9. select A1-rooter.zip
10. installing should be done in seconds.
11. go back and reboot to android.
12. enjoy..your ideapad a1 has been successfully been rooted.

It will not work. I tried several versions, to include the most recent paid version. A paid subscription of skype will work, but the video is not quite right. The voice part works fine.
