i managed to get ICS_Root to run under Linux (Ubuntu 14). It claims Root achieved but Titanium Backup says "no root".

I found http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1823421 but I'm stuck.

0) Have your CPUID and/or SBK to hand, along with the A500 APX Flash Tool downloaded. <<=== I don't know how to get the CPUID
If you have your CPUID but not your SBK, go generate it now with http://a500bootloaderflash.tk/sbkcalc/

1) Download the root zip from http://www.blackthund3r.co.uk/hostedfiles/CWM_ICSRoot and copy it to the device's internal storage over USB

2) Load the A500 APX Flash Tool and enter the bundle market. View the bundles for the default repo (a500bootloaderflash.tk) ,<=== the Tool unpacks as a .exe. I'm on LInux.

I searched for how to get the CPUID and found this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1624645

(2) From your device using Terminal Emulator App
looked promising but didn't say _how_ (or which Terminal Emulator app)

Pointers or links would be nice.

Help?

(2) Retrieve your CPUID from your Tab using Terminal Emulator from the market

Code:
dmesg | grep androidboot.serialno
some have reported this did not work for them but that this one did when they tried it:
Code:
dmesg > /mnt/external_sd/dmesg.txt
Run these commands AFTER you have rebooted your Tab..

NOTE: HC Bootloaders who are running an ICS build:

adb reports your device ID as your serial no. and we need your HC CPUID.
