@ everyone i am discontinuing myKIT_BATCH and replacing it with a standalone batch script / shell script for rooting & the tethered recovery launcher ; with Intel Tablets increasing in use i feel this is the best course of action and will make it easier for new users . . .
The new thread is up but its still very much under construction : Intel Android Devices Root / Temp CWM Session

If this thing is flawless....
Then I would understand Dell for locking the boot loader.. But I am very very mad at Dell. This piece of device IS piece of junk with Android 4.3. Almost all appLications at some point in time will locked up and froze and for you to get back to it, you would have to press the power button momentarily, i.e turn off the display and turn it back on. Too bad I did not play with it very hard w/in 21 days of owning it. Now I don't know if it is worth talking to dell of repairing (AND/or REPLACING IT.)

Dell you can PM me. I will be actively watching this V8 (i GOT A 32 GIG v8) on www-facebook-com-DellHomeUS.

Thanks,

Tik

Tik, while i under stand your frustration, I started this thread to move the devices out of the low activity section and for discussing and sharing any information that may lead to root method and aid in future development of these devices not to complain about Dell or the device..

if you wish to address to Dell your frustration with the device i urge you to post a commit to the facebook post:
Dell Venue 7/8 Intel Unlock Request

if you have a general question about the device please feel free to post in the new QA thread:
Dell Venue 7 & Venue 8 Intel General Q&A

or search in the original dell thread:
Original 2013 Dell Venue Tablet - root progress

Tell me what you want, jcase rooted 1 Venue 8 on 4.3 but the exploit was never made public, but that user allowed me access so i have, extracted boot, recovery, droidboot, kernel and ramdisk only no real images, and the rooted system.img, also took cat /proc/kallsyms from the rooted device, but have since figured out how to get kallsyms from a non rooted device, i probably have most everything you just tell me what you need.

i hope to have everything i have up by the end of the weekend, till then list what your wanting and ill post what i can provide.

Quick couple questions, how are you getting into fastboot? I can't get it. Have you tried using fastboot to flash the rooted system image?

adb reboot-bootloader even works powered off as the device use a charging os mode, or from powered off hold down vol down and the power key to boot to droidboot.

No I have the V7 not the V8, flashing a fake data.img to data I've had issues flash any img larger than 100mb or sparse images. Dell hasn't released a full restore firmware yet so I've not risked flashing system.img.

By the end of the weekend I should have everything I know up. The flashing a prerooted system image does seem to be a common root for Intel devices but with out a factory restore firmware / full-install.zip that's a huge risk knowing if it doesn't work dell won't warranty the device. So you'd be stuck with a soft brick until Dell released a full-install.zip and i don't think dells done that for any device they have ever released. Knowing that the device can be rooted with out flashing a prerooted system.img this should be a last option.
