Oops! Something went wrong. Aborting
Your system has not been modified
Exit code 126

When running script with terminal on tablet I got exit code 1 on the same stage.

Hmm, that sounds like a permissions problem. Before running the script, can you turn off Selinux enforcement somehow? Try running 'setenforce 0' or maybe there's a setting in Magisk that controls this. Bear with me, I'm trying to get to the bottom of this...

Has anyone besides amartolos gotten this to work yet?

I ran the tool successfully and it said to reboot and Root. While rebooting it says:
Orange State
Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted
Your device will reboot in 5 seconds

Then I can't get a root to take.

Edit: I found the problem. After you run the script, run magisk to root before you reboot, while you are still in temp root status.

Yep, you got it! In order to have persistent root, you actually have to install it to your boot partition while booted up with temporary root.

I tried SELinuxModeChanger to set Selinux to permisive and tried setenforce 0 and both give same exit code 1 from the terminal.

What firmware version do you have installed? And are you running this from the /data/local/tmp directory?

Last two numbers should be .27
I checked and yes there is a update, but I don't think I can install it. Since I and already rooted. The size of the update seems to be a security update.

Has anyone who successfully rooted this device able to do the update after?

I'm glad to see that Asus is releasing security updates even if it does break the unlock. My biggest fear buying this tablet was that it would not be updated. I opted for the update and will hope for an updated patch from @diplomatic.

As an aside. I would encourage anyone in this thread to give hit the "Thanks" button for diplomatic!

EDIT: I just checked and see my last update brought me to WW_14.0210.1711.30_20171206. That's different than the 1/4/2018 update showing on the website which is WW_14.0210.1709.30 and what @Joh14vers6 shows.

OK everyone, this is important... I found an incompatibility between the new FW's kernel and the tool. You have to use the patched boot image from FW 1709.27 for temporary root... In the meantime, I have to fix it to be able to run under the new FW. But it won't be compatible with the old. And I hope it still unlocks...

Is there a way to update after rooting?
