Anyone knows how to root an Asus MEMO Pad 8 ? I've tried every generic tools that I could find and none were able to push the root files to the system partition.

The SoC is an Rockchip RK3188.

Edit : Look at post #8 in this thread for a link to KingoApp Root Tool which works on Asus Memo Pad 8. Thank to chairsz for finding and trying the root for us.

Created a virtual machine, installed the Android composite ADB device driver from the Rockchip driver and ran TPsparky... No joy !

Yes, ADB devices shows the Pad 8 as being "online". When the script tries to move and create files, the access is denied.

Could use a custom recovery for backup...

Don't need a custom ROM though... Just install GravityBox... It works great !
