Tablet [Q] Acer Iconia B1 A71 Root

Does anyone know how to root the Acer Iconia B1 tablet. Is it too early for a root?
I already tried the bin4ry method but it doesn't work.
Thanks in advance

Edit: Iconia B1 root method on page 16 by bullbrand http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...113944&page=16

Guess we will just have to wait till the device becomes more popular.
Incase anyone is wondering, its a pretty good device for the price. Seems to be running unmodified Jelly Bean and performance is quite snappy.

It would be great if there were someone that would develop a rom for this. I just ordered one

I would appreciate it, if there would soon be a way for root or to install a custom rom!

The bin4ry method doesn't even detect the device without some initial work.

When the device is plugged in, Windows detects the MTP drivers but not the MT65XX drivers which I believe is needed for Android ADB.
You can download the MT65XX drivers from the link below
http://www.mediafire.com/?bqab7ewrdkbaaqi

After installing these drivers the Bin4ry root will detect the device but it will get stuck in one of the steps.
Maybe a newer version of Bin4ry will work or someone can figure out how to get it to work.

No longer need this driver, just read "New Acer Drivers" post below
Instructions for installing MT65XX drivers
1. Download USB drivers for MT65xx
2. Set device on USB debugging mode.
3. Connect to PC using USB 2.0
4. After PC fails to find driver go to device manager ->Find MT65XX device ->Right click ->Update driver ->Browse for driver ->Now there are two ways to install:
1. ''Search for a driver in this location'' ->Browse to the driver location and press next. If this fails try the next method.
2. ''Let me pick from a list....'' ->Select ''let me pick from a list...'' ->Click on "have disk" ->Browse to driver folder and choose 'android_winusb.inf' -> From the list pick 'Android composite ADB interface' and click install.
5. After successful driver installation you should see 'Android composite ADB interface' in device manager.

Default New Acer Drivers

Acer recently released the ADB drivers for this tablet. So there no need to use the MT65xx drivers anymore.
In one of my tries the bin4ry method actually proceeded to completion but with multiple permission denied errors.
So still no root.
You can download the acer drivers from their website.
