The VRoot program. When I first tried it, didn't work....the VRoot program updated itself to 1.78 and then worked. You might also try the non-English version since it seems to be at 1.78 for download. I think I may have installed both the English and the non-English versions.

I am glad it worked for you. I am a little nervous about this root method since I don't know how it works, and that if I uninstall the Kinguser Superuser.apk then I lose root so I cannot use a different Superuser app. I don't know if this method puts us at risk for someone getting into our tablets without our knowledge. However, VRoot is the only root method that I have found to work for the i925 with VRAMK1 firmware.

I think I have a way to completely clean VRoot off the i925 and replace their Kinguser superuser app with Chainfire's SuperSU. The method is based on MrW0lf''s posted method but I had to modifiy for VRoot version 1.7.8 and the i925. Unzip the cleanvr.zip and put the cleanvr folder on your sdcard. Then you can adb into the i925 and su. Go into the cleanvr directory and do the command "/system/bin/sh ./root.sh". This should hopefully clean out VRoot. Don't forget to uninstall VRoot on your PC with something like IOBitUninstaller.

Did you use Root Explorer to do this? I rooted using iroot 1.7.9 (non-English) and want to keep root but clear out he madness. Can you walk me through how you did what you did? Not trying to be funny but I just don't want to brick this thing.
