This tool installs su and superuser.apk for stock HC 3.1 and HC 3.01

As the old root method does not work anymore I created this new tool.

How to root
1. Goto Settings->Applications and enable "Unkown sources"
2. Download the attached APK file
3. Copy the file to your Iconia
4. Install the APK & start the tool
5. Click "root"
6. Enjoy :)


How to unroot
1. Start the tool & click "unroot"

NOTE
- By clicking root, you agree that you do this at your own risk. The tool will uninstall any previous installed superuser.apk.

Thanks
@ChainsDD for superuser.apk and su
@Acer for this buggy tool

Changelog

1.3.0:
- Also remove any "su" folder from /system/bin and /system/xbin .

1.2.0:
- Remove su from /system/bin and /system/xbin before rooting. This should fix the issues when someone installed the 3.1 OTA without unrooting the device before.

1.1.0:
- Add support for HC3.0

1.0.0:
- Initial version


!!! Use at your own risk !!!

NOTE
- This was tested only with Acer_A500_3.019.04_COM_GEN1 but will probably work with any other version.

Yes, itsmagic still works. I installed thor's recovery and it is working fine.

Just remove this install-recovery.sh and call itsmagic before flashing the recovery..

And quite rightly, if gaining root isn't a security threat I don't know what is. But as you WANT this particular security breach and you trust the author - I assume - then don't worry about it and run it anyway. This is a good security breach, not a bad one!
