Starting from a good work of MEHRDAD595 (thank you!!!), as soon as possible I'll post the tutorial to root any version of fonepad 7 (I've rooted mine).

Now I'm working to flash no-brand ROM to open my fonepad to updates...
There are no limitations to tethering but I don't know if external LAN adapter works.
The kernel seems the same of no-TIM version...

Bye

Hi Max

I thanks for the root file. It worked in my TIM version.
Could you please post a unroot file, so I could be able to update via Ota (6.3.6 is available, but failing becouse of the root)

Thanks in advance

To add to the data read here are I assume what's needed:
Code:
Select Code
Model k012

ro.build.asus.sku=WW
ro.build.id=JSS15Q
ro.build.display.id=JSS15Q.WW_fonepad-10.32.1.28.2-20140522,release-keys
ro.build.version.incremental=WW_fonepad-10.32.1.28.2-20140522

ro.build.description=WW_fonepad-user 4.3 JSS15Q WW_fonepad-10.32.1.28.2-20140522 release-keys
ro.build.fingerprint=asus/WW_fonepad/K012:4.3/JSS15Q/WW_fonepad-10.32.1.28.2-20140522:user/release-keys
Also per upgrade script /system is mounted here as
Code:
Select Code
/dev/block/mmcblk0p9 /system ext4 ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,data=ordered 0 0
Instead of blk0p8

Bad news ... ASUS K012 FE170CG is not rootable with that method, because ASUS uses an non-public available key for signing their update packages. They have learned from their mistakes

Does it mean that K012 is totally un-rootable? Does it mean that someone will need to find new exploit or get the key from asus?

I currently have 10 of those devices, based my small business on them, but without root they are useless for me. Do you think we can see some root in a month or two or no-one-knows?


Thanks for help

There is no device, which is totally un-rootable. The method of rooting described in this thread takes advantage of a big carelessness of asus using public available android testing key to sign their ota update files. Now they use another non-public key, so we have to find another way into. It's up to you, too

Btw why have you bought 10 currently non-rootable devices for small business purposes, if you have to fullfil the necessary requirement gaining root access

Thanks for clarification and a light of hope . When I was purchasing the devices I have quickly checked XDA forums and found info that Fonepad 7 is rootable, but didnt check what model I am exactly buying. I know Im stupid

Default Failed from a fresh never rooted 6.3.6

Hi guys,

I'm coming from a mint never rooted before 6.3.6 WW, I've tried flashing 6.3.6.zip and the flashing went well, but it went error on installing with death android icon.

I've just got this tablet so practicaly nothing has been done, I've just received twice update upon unboxing - 1 for 5.2.5 and another to 6.3.6

Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
