You tried rooting it and then got factory reset problem? If so which method you used for rooting? After you fixed that no more root?

help me please!

First I would suggest you doing Factory reset/Wipe data from either options menu or system recovery menu (Instructions on official HP forum ).

If suggestion from above does not work then I would suggest you restoring tablet with image from HP website but it seems that they removed it for some reason so it isn't available anymore (but I have a copy of it on my pc and I'll ask on official HP forums why did they remove it). Maybe they removed it because an Android upgrade is coming? They said HP 8 1401 should get KitKat update but not when..

And please, if you try something from above or find another solution report back in this thread so people can know what is the fix since there are a lot of them with your problem.

I did a factory reset both from inside the android and from the recovery menu. Also I wiped out the cache too. Yes, I looked into HP's support page but I found nothing too, as you said. Is there any possibility in the end, to get the root and don't have the reset problem?

It would be very helpfull If you can send me the image you have as a temporary solution at least. If I find anything I'm planning to make a post in my Greek blog (eyrhka.gr) and post an answer here too. I'm watching this thread for a while but there are too few people own this tablet.

As far as I know there's no way to root this tablet without getting the reset problem. I'll sent you a PM regarding update/restore file.
