Code:
#include /* * Your warranty is now void. * * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. */

Here comes the root for the Nabi 2 and how to install fully work GApps.

You must have a basic working knowledge of adb and have it installed. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1590800
Also ensure you have fastboot installed and working


1. Ensure you have latest updates
2. Download jmzrootpackage.zip from here
3. Extract files to desktop
4. Plug in phone
5. Choose from which option you want

Recovery was built by me but Dees_Troy pointed me in the right direction a couple times

Tried it, works!

So pleased to have full root and Play Store!

My Nabi 2 had the android update and the root ran with lots of errors, but I have already installed an app from the Play Store ( Titanium Backup free ) and am running it now....

Now to see if I can get GL to SD to run, and then get a 32GB MicroSDHC card...

Sigh...

I am so sorry, I forgot to say THANKS! Mad props! If I wasn't so broke ( can't even pay my bills right now ) I would definitely donate...

But..

You made poor me SO HAPPY!

Worked prefect for me as well. She is going to be happy her missing apps\games are back. Titianium restored her progress on games from her Nabi1, worked like a champ.

Thanks again.

I tried it a couple of times last night and had to end up doing a recover to get my apps back. Did any of you that successfully rooted your nabi do the software update? Just think they might have changed something in the update to fix the root exploit. If anyone else is able to get their nabi rooted could you please post your log from Bin4ry's program.

Doing a reboot a couple times brings your apps back. It will error out throughout the process. But at the end will say successful. If it doesnt first try reboot a couple times to get your data back then try again. I am not the creator of the exploit as I noted so it might be better to ask bin4ry. But I have 2 nabi's and this worked on both. Before and after update. I did have to reroot after update though
