[Q] Rooting acer A700 -- Stuck after wait-for-device adb instruction
I'm new in this forum but it's not the first time that I come to read and learn brillants topics. But this time I need more specific advices about rooting the acer A700. I did a lot of research yesterday on my side and on internet and I unfornatelly cannot resolve it.
The problem I have is the same of Toad513 in the topics "Full root for A700 and A7001 tablets" post #106
I follow all the instructions of the method 1 because I don't have a ICS firmware. (I have the EMEA_CUS1) I added some "echo" in the runit script to find where it stucks; the process frezzes on the line "adb wait-for-device". (And "Waiting for device" is written in the terminal). Nothing happens when I restart the tablet (unlike Toast513 post) but if I give in another terminal the command "adb devices" the following lines appear :
-Wait for connect device...
remote object '/system/xbin/su' does not exist
The file "su" isn't created!
Not getting root :(
Press any key.
So it's basically almost the same problem.
Toast513 said that the method2 worked, but I don't have the ICS firmware and it's written only for ICS firmware in the guide.
Another question that I have, do I need to install superuser from the market and disabled the anti-virus before launching the script for method 1 ? And where is located the boot.img file I only saw rooting.img in the folder ?
And last question, it is also indicated that OTA firmware upgrading won't work on method 2. So we manually have to flash the tablet when a new firmware is available, that's right ?
I hope being enough accurate and I'm apologize for my bad english
Thanks in advance
PS: As I don't have 10 messages I cannot post in the Full root for A700
thread. It would be good for the other people who don't have the ICS firmware to put a comment to refer here.
