I'm starting this thread to share the progress which I made so maybe we can go ahead and achieve the root!


DEVICE INFO

Android: 4.3
Kernel: 3.4.43
Processor: Intel Atom Z2520
Bootloader: DROIDBOOT
Fastboot: Avaible

HOW TO ENTER FASTBOOT

Power button & Vol +

or

Code:
adb reboot bootloader

USEFULL FASTBOOT COMMANDS

Code:
fastboot flash update update.zip
Flash an update.zip from recovery (it will fail as it flashes only signed zip and the keypair used is not avaible!)

Code:
fastboot boot boot.img
Boot a kernel without replace the one in use (it will fail as it boots only signed boot.img and the keypair used is not avaible!)

Code:
fastboot flash <device_dir> <computer_dir>
Flash almost everything everywhere.


MADE ATTEMPTS

1 - Use almost every tool on the net for rooting - FAIL
2 - Create an update.zip with su binaries and superuser.apk and flash it via recovery - FAIL (due to keypair lack)
3 - Unpack boot.img to set ro.secure=0 and root - FAIL (due to keypair lack)

TO TRY

1 - Find a way to unlock bootloader (e-mailed asus)
2 - Try to put su binaries on device with fastboot flash <device_dir> <computer_dir> (don't know if it can work)
3 - Find keypair to sign zips and kernels (e-mailed asus)
4 - ....?

I also tried to use the fakebackup.ab exploit, but it seems to be patched on our device.

Asus replied that the only way is to unlock bootloader, so I asked them how to and now I'm waiting for a reply!

Hello, thanks for the info, worked great. I'm curious if the ROOT survival mode will work if I accept the 4.4 update. Any idea? Thanks again.

I got the K01A tablet but I read that this root method should work. I have ADB installed correctly but when i run the bat the command prompt sats that "adb server us out of date. Killing... * daemon started succesfully*" then it doesent' do anything.

Check drivers!

I did, and i installed it as an adb device and it worked...kinda.

However now it can't find these files:

error: cannot load 'magic'

error: cannot load 'busybox'

error: cannot load 'supersu.tgz'

error: cannot load 'installer'

But they are there, I've also tried serveral usb ports and usb cables, same result.

Edit: logged in as admin on my computer and that did it, thanks anyway!

Try to check if it's rooted with Root Checker!

Is it still compatible for the KitKat update?
How can I root with those tools if I'm on a Mac? I'm able to use Terminal with adb and fastboot commands but I'd like a procedure to do it right, thanks!

Installs binaries to the filesystem, but su is not working?

Hi!
I got Intel Z3735D-based Chuwi V99I. It's got Android 4.2.2. I was very happy to find out that the tool works! It installs binaries at correct places, I could even modify Your scripts to remove some unnecessary apps from /system/app etc. and it does the trick.

But: the su itself doesn't work, although installed with correct permissions and can be executed. It doesn't seem to gain root privileges at all. Neither SuperSu.apk works, nor RootChecker confirms the system is rooted. When issuing the "su" command in the terminal, nothing happens.

Could it be different binaries are required for the Android 4.2.2?

I would appreciate any hint.

Regards,
Maciej
