Verify your root: Root Checker on Play Store


FAQ
 

Q: I'm stuck inside a bootloop after rooting!!!11
A1: The system.img.gz you applied, wasn't suiting to the firmware version installed on your tablet. Download latest Acer firmware update ( !!! if available !!!), copy it on a micro sd card, plug it into your Iconia, go to recovery by holding Volume up and Power button while device is turned off. Then choose apply update from sd card.
A2: If you cannot apply any Acer firmware, because you always get a partition error while installing, you should do a reboot after you get the error. A user reported that this made her/his device boot into Android again, showing the new version in settings -> info. Good luck
A3: If your device is really bricked you could try bring it back to life. Here you find help: link1, link2, link3, link4 (many thanks to Gilly10, drmad and Hamza91)
A4 (B1-A71, B1-710, B1-711 only): Unbrick
A5: If the A1 - A4 didn't help. Send back the device to Acer. Tell them you tried to apply an update from sd card and ended up in this bootloop. Sending device back to Acer over UPS is free. Good luck!

Q: Successfully rooted, but still no root after rebooting!
A: Have you installed Superuser App from Google Play Store?
(B1-A71 only)Q: Cannot update, always getting ERROR: - Invalid partition setting; 17: fat 238e8000:888e8000; Instalation aborted.
A: Download "Invalid Partition Error" Patch.
(B1-A71 only)Q: I applied update from RV05RC05 to RV05RC06 but still it shows RV05RC05.
A: There is no RV05RC06. It is the RV05RC05. It got on Acers Download section with a RV05RC06 named zip file. But the content is 100% equal to RV05RC05.
Q: Toolkit fails or crashes for any reason and I don't know what to do.
A: Run it again with parameter -d, e.g.: toolkit.exe -d and post the entire output here.
Q: Root from scratch on Linux doesn't work because of Error message: 'No such file or directory bin/posix/64/adb'
A: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 libgcc1 zlib1g libncurses5 libsdl1.2debian
Q: Can i flash a custom recovery?
A: No, because bootloader is locked. You would brick your tablet.
Q: Are there Custom ROMs?
A: No, see answer above.
Q: Is my data wiped during root?
A: No.
Q: Do i lose root after factory reset or wipe date?
A: No.
Q: I get an error in Engineer mode entering telnet command.
A: If Swiftkey is installed / enabled try settings Google AOSP Keyboard as default.
Q: How can I start telnet server manually?
A: Try this.



What you can do with root:
 

Apply Supercharger V6 by zeppelinrox and significally speed up your tablet! [My small How-To]
Install Adaway, an ad-blocker for webbrowsers and apps containing ads.
Install ROM Toolbox and customize boot screen and other funny things.
Install Titanium Backup to Backup, Freeze, Uninstall any App and more.
Install Datasync to sync app data like save states between rooted devices.


What you can NOT do with root on these devices:
 

Change DPI
Flash Custom Recoveries
Flash Custom ROMs

I uploaded a new version where I added some commands that hopefully resolve the permissions issues.
The problem is, that I can't reproduce it.

Are you rooting the Iconia the first time? or did you already have root before?

Regarding the progress bar. It only appears when writing the system.img.gz

I have Windows 7 64 bit, btw.
