Hallo Members of xda!

As you see, this is my first post. I just wanted to tell you, that I have found a working Method to get Root on fot the Asus The New Padfone Infinity a86 (with Stock Android 4.2.2)

Because this is my first Account on xda, I was not able to post directly in the thread, where the Root was explained and developed. So I opened a new post in this forum.

First: Big thanks to k1mu, who developed a working Root for many Android 4.3 devices an devices below Android 4.3. Even the New Padfone Infinity was successfully rooted with his method.

His "Saferoot" can be found here, in his original Thread.

I'm interessted, if I could help all the Padfone users, searching for a working root method, because the Kingoapp was not an alternative for me, especially with rumors about the app sending the phones IMEI to chinese servers.

So give the "Saferoot" a try. It would make me happy, to see posts of you here, in case the root worked for you, or not!

Kind regards,

Xanthales

Thumbs up
Hey !

Just a big thanks for this info. It worked great for me and only 5 mins. All the USB drivers are already on the phone so nothing to download except the root itself.

Thanks a lot !

Thumbs up [Root] Asus The New Padfone Infinity a86 - Working Root
Thanks guys,
Tried it successfully on my Asus Padfone Infinity A86.

If it doesn't take for a couple of times, don't be discouraged.

It took me ~ 10 attempts until it recognized my device, transferred the files, and did the install.

I verified BT, WiFi, GPS working all OK!!


-Still, I have a problem uninstalling the original 'Hemi' apps family, Parental lock, Kindle Store and Chrome (I use Dolphin), which came originally with the OS. For now I just disabled them.

You can use "RootZenFone-1.4.6.2r.apk" but you have to follow instructions:
DOWNLOAD LINK
INSTRUCTIONS: (Credits goes to kakit526 and ycavan at padfoneclub.com)
1. Install SuperSU
2. Install RootChecker
3. Install RootZenFone
4. Forget your current Wifi connection ( hold your wifi AP->Forget Network )
5. Shut off Wifi
6. Shut off Mobile Networking
7. Run RootZenFone
8. Hold Power button right after click "Root" button
9. Restart phone
10. Wait for Android guy to finish updating software
11. Start SuperSU ( initially says it's empty )
12. Start RootChecker to verify root


Also you can discuss your problems in this thread
