Talking Root and ABD for Nabi Jr.

The Nabi Jr.is a small $99.00 version of the Fuhu Nabi 2. It has 4 GB of internal storage, micro SD slot, 5 inch capacitive screen, a Tegra 2 processor and is running ICS 4.0.4. Full Specs can be seen here.

The Nabi Jr. can be rooted easily following the guidelines below. I rooted mine in under 15 minutes. Of course, rooting voids your warranty and I am not responsible for anything that might go wrong.

The first step is to install the ADB drivers. I found this video guide which made the process easy enough:

Then I followed the instructions for rooting with Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18 at this link
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

I chose Normal - Option 1.

Good luck!

Just wondering if anyone else has tried this. Lots of views but no replies. Hello? Anyone out there with a Nabi Jr.?

Just tried this and it works, it's actually easier to install the drivers using PDANet+

I am now trying to figure out a way to install GAPPS so I can have access to the play store.

i installed gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip
you should be able to side load it(with TWRP on either sd card) or install goomanager from 1mobile app market that you can install from the browser

Hi, I need help here. Hopefully you guys can help. I wiped the Nabi Jr system roms and now can't boot pass the Nabi logo. I Thought I had made a backup of it when I backup all the app, but it looks like I didn't. Been looking around and haven't found stock roms. So I'm hoping some of you Nabi Jr owners can help me out with backup copy of your Nabi Jr Stock Roms so I can get my little girl Nabi Jr back up and running again. I would really appreciate it.

I'd ask Eric from the post above yours. He helped test out the TWRP I made for it since I don't have a JR, and he is really good about backing stuff up. I don't think the JR is as popular to mod so probably not many backups out there but someone will come to the rescue I'm sure.

If you can that would be great.
