I assumed for those who succeeded in rooting their devices are referring to the PadFone mini 4.3 (A11) with Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.4GHz and not the Padfone Mini (T00E) with Intel® Atom™ Z2560 (1.6 GHz). Right? Lucky you!
It would be grateful is anyone could provide any link on how to root the Padfone Mini with Intel® Atom™ Z2560 (1.6 GHz). Thank you in advance.
Edit: Additional Info
I managed to find the latest rooting tool from Taiwan website. Herewith the attached root app (APK). I also managed to root my Padfone Mini (T00E). If you are in the same device (model) like me then you may proceed with the root tool else please wait till someone has make it available. Refer to my device info.
Android version: 4.4.2
Baseband version: 1434_188.8.131.52
Kernal version: 3.10.20-00002-g277d428
Build number: KVT49L.WW_PadFone-V6.5.31-20141016
Please be extra careful when perform the rooting process. I would like to remind you to follow strictly the instruction on the root app.
You NEED TO "FORGET" the WiFi network (disable the WiFi) as is not good enough just to disable it!
Please also disable the mobile data before you proceed.
Do some Google search or YouTube search on how to use the root tool. It is a bit of tricky... I try my best to explain but please do not expect me to reply immediately if you encounter any issue because I do not visit this forum very often.
Note: Always remember to enable the development option and tick the USB debugging before proceed!!
(1) Once you launched the root app and follow the instruction to "FORGET" and "DISABLE" both WiFi and mobile data. You shall realize that the Asus Demo apps will launch by itself.
(2) Ignore any pop-up message from the screen (Don't click anything on the screen) and wait for about 10 seconds then only proceed to switch-off the phone by pressing and holding the power button.
(3) The phone shall turn off and reboot itself! And you shall obtain the root access with SuperSU.
I have attached several screenshots for your reference. Hope those who are using Asus PadFone Mini (T00E) are happy with their rooted phone as I am! Please be reminded that I am not a developer and I am just sharing my UX on rooting this phone. All credit goes to the respective developers
