Now I know why I stopped buying HP products years ago - I hope someone comes up with a fix soon as this is a right pain in the rs.
So I was able to get the next generation up (1411) rooted with NO REBOOT ISSUE!!!! Try this method on the 1401
I downloaded PDAnet+ from play store and for the PC. It loaded a daemon on my tablet but was unable to root (took forever). Once done I downloaded KINGO Root and it successfully rooted my tablet in minutes. Root Checker verified SuperSU permissions granted all good to go. Hope this helps others.
YOU MUST INSTALL PDANET AND TRY ROOT THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP. IT SEEMS PDANET PREPS THE TABLET FOR KINGO TO SUCCESSFULLY ROOT!!!!!!!!!!!
This is suspicious as hell, I wouldn't recommend doing it!
Official description of PdaNet+:
"PdaNet+ shares the Internet access of your Android phone with your computer or tablet."
Downloading and installing that app for anything about rooting doesn't make any sense.. Be careful people.
Wow I was expecting a thank you rather than being "suspicious'. I am actually a bit offended by this but ill be an adult and understand people's need to be cautious.
In all honesty I have no concrete idea why Pdanet needs to be installed and attempted first, by all means try kingo root first. I'm just letting others know my steps. I immediately Uninstalled Pdanet and the kingo daemon immediately after root. I can say that everything is functioning as intended and the root is true (freedom, game Guardian and lucky patcher all working)
I looked up how to root the allwinner version (33) and came across many people with the same allwinner but belonging to cheap no name tablets. All of them had issues with the other root methods and were able to root via the PDANET/KINGO combo. If you feel too much is at risk to even try this then please don't try it. I respect everyone's privacy and was just trying to share what worked for me. I can provide screenshot and video proof if need be.
Sorry to be so suspicious, I was just trying to help!
