I have seen many places in the web of people trying to Root PRESTIGIO tablets, ending up to a bricked tablet.

To save you a lot of stress and time, I opened this thread....

Please report your research on this threat.

I will also direct threads with information to this place so we have everything gathered !

I own a PRESTIGIO PMP3270B tablet.

I haven't managed to root mine. I have tried a lot of techniques, everything failed.
One of them screwed my PMP3270B. Now it is "bricked".

The only thing that looked like going well was the backing up of the tablet without rooting.
I could achieve that by following the technique found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1844032

Also there is a tool that may do the Rooting trick if you haven't bricked yours yet.
I found it in a Czech forum, a (google translated) post dedicated to PMP3270B tablet.
The application that may root this tablet is called "Android ICS Root Unlocker 1.0" Developed by GreekDev -11th July 2012
I couldn't apply the "patch" because I have managed to bricked my tablet before that.

Take care

News......

I found Arnova 7h G3 specs are similar to the Prestigio PMP3270B. Logically any ROM will work on both tablets.

Arnova has better community.....

Before starting another Prestigio thread, you should've probably use "Search" feature of the forum first.
For instance something like: http://forum.xda-developers.com/site...hp?q=prestigio

As for the rooting thing... Have you checked your device before rooting if it's rooted already maybe?
I am asking this because on most markets, your device already comes pre-rooted.

Yes guys. I managed to do it.




And yes the application that may root this tablet is called "Android ICS Root Unlocker 1.0" Developed by GreekDev -11th July 2012
This is a Zipped file that you will need to unzip.
rootPMP3270B.zip



Make sure that USB is enabled on your tablet and also USB for debugging option is ticked to ON.
Run CMD as an administrator and then write ICS_Root_Unlocker.bat
It is important that you run it from CMD.
At each tablet reboot wait before pressing a key to continue.
Before pressing key to continue enable USB again on your tablet each time it reboots.


If you have problems contact me by quick PM.....

I have also managed to Root another prestigio model.

The Prestigio 7777 GeoVision ICS 4.0.3

There is a trick.
You need to make windows 7 not to see a non installed driver. I achieved it using virtual windows 7 on VMWare. Now I have Genuine rooted Android, with build in Digital TV Tuner and FM tranmitter.

Thanks
(I promised to give you info, and I gave it to you)

Thanks to all who supported me...
