Question How to root without PC

Hello Guys
I always root my old devices without problems following your guides but.......

I've a problem connecting my tf300 to Win or Linux pc via USB; when i plug-in the cable it says "unkown device".
Obviously i tried to install many kind of drivers, asus sync or universal drivers without lucky.

My question: is there a way to root my device without pc? (or just in case do you have some proposal to solve my problem with unkown device on pc?)

Thank you so much in advance.

You can use framaroot to root it, it just installs an app to try rooting.

LG Optimus Dynamic II L39C (Stock, rooted)

I already tried that app but unfortunately it doesn't work... it says that there isn't exploit in my system

There might be something wrong with your tablet then. I used kingo to root mine just the other day.

Give the naked drivers a try: http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...naked-t2513339
They worked at my tablet flawlessly with kingo root.
