This should work for any and all a100 Honeycomb builds, you'll need to install an app from the market called terminal emulator. Also, you'll need a file manager like Astro to unzip the file.

This mod should root your tab in a matter of seconds after the script file is launched. I've tested this on my tab from a clean build and it works like a champ.

Here we go!

- Install the following apps from the market:
Terminal Emulator
https://market.android.com/details?i...oidterm&rdot=1

Astro File Manager
https://market.android.com/details?i...go.astro&hl=en

- Download the attached file from this post.

- Extract and put both the root.sh and su in /mnt/sdcard from the root.zip file.

(Using Astro, find the root.zip file it might be in /mnt/sdcard/Downloads or could be else where if your not using the website to view XDA. Copy it from where ever it's at and paste it in /mnt/sdcard. Press your finger on the zip file and tap Extract when the menu pops up. Tap "Extract to This Directory".)

- Next, open terminal emulator and copy / paste the following:

sh /mnt/sdcard/root.sh

Text will fly by, the script will automatically copy the su binary and install it to the proper location.


Once the script finishes running, be sure to install superuser from the market:

Very Important, if you skip this you won't be "officially rooted yet"!!!

https://market.android.com/details?i...fou.android.su

Open the superuser app once it's installed, click on the wrench in the upper right corner, scroll to the bottom and find "Su binary v... Tap to check for updates" and tap that link. It should bring you to an update screen, click the button at the bottom to update!


Once you have done the above, then install busybox, Titanium, etc.. if needed.

Thanks goes to abliss for origionally coming up with the root commands!

This mod really just automates his work.

ok terminal manager is out, I didn't realize that doing a hard reset wouldn't wipe the /system/xbin directory completely so technically busybox tools were still installed and sh wouldn't normally be there. I'll see if there's another way..

This method should, yes and it's safe.. It's actually more safe (if that's possible) than the method origionally posted in the dev section since there really isn't any room for user error.

I wasn't expecting it to anyway, but I figured I'd let you know this doesn't work on the A101.

Hoping someone can find a working root method for this model.

Thumbs up It works and its so simple
Thank you so much for this! It was so easy. Though the only problem I had was with the terminal emulator, no fualt of the Dev, but it might help someone. When I was trying to write in the line of code I kept getting errors because I couldnt get the keyboard to write lower case. So copy and paste if your a noon like me to get it through the terminal.
