ok, im new to this android rooting stuff, usually use tools to do it. Ill look, search,learn and hopefully not brick it. Im scared, but its fun to play around. If anyone can point me to this "tethered cwm recovery root method," thanks. I dont want to download and do the wrong stuff
well i tried the tethered method:
T1 and T2 did not work, T3 oem stop_partitioning said success
it fastboots, gets into recovery, but there is no option to install from zip.
options in recovery i have are:
reboot system now
apply update from adb
wipe data factory reset
wipe cache partition
reboot to bootloader
view recovery logs
Is there any update on getting root on the new Venue 10 5050? Perhaps there is something I can pull from the firmware of the device that would aid in getting a proper exploit working to use the tethered CWM...
I honestly thought I could deal without root as it is so close to stock Android. But like the OP mentions, Dell loaded so much crap into /system. McAffee? Really Dell?

Here is how I managed to root the Dell Venue 10 5050 32GB running 5.0.2:
Install Intel ADB drivers from here: IntelAndroidDrvSetup1.9.0.zip
Use the beta tethered CWM release from Feb: IntelAndroid-FBRL 05-16-2015 Public Trail Release
The 2nd method "T2" is what worked. There was an OEM Command Not Found when it tried to reboot to Recovery. I just hit VOL UP button and it kicked off the tethered recovery!!
Now I was in CWM, but I did not have access to /sdcard. So, I grabbed a micro SD, copied "SuperSU-v2.46.zip" and installed ZIP from external SD. Hit reboot and fix root. ART had to rebuild the cache, so I waited past the "Android is Upgrading" screen for about 10 minutes.
Voila! Now I have working root on the Dell Venue 10 5050 build SOC101A203400DEL Android 5.0.2
The root apps I installed are AdAway, App Ops, Greenify, Wakelock Detector, Root Explorer and Titanium Backup. I then used Titanium Backup to backup and then uninstall McAffee, Polaris, Evernote, & Audible. There might have been a couple others like Pinyin Input, I can't remember. Basically, if it can be installed from the Play Store, then I don't want it as a /system app.
I think I'm going to try removing everything that starts with Dell as well...
You are correct that an OTA update would either 1) Remove SuperSU and root or 2) not update.
