Original article is published on this site and created by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).

How to:
1. The tablet should be already upgraded to stock ICS for A100/A101 (or stock ICS A500/A501/A510 for other tablets).
2. Download this archive on the computer. Unpack it to any place.
3, On a tablet: "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "Development" -> "USB debugging" switch on.
4. Сonnect the tablet to the computer (Before connection it is recommended to update the driver for a tablet from here: A10x, A50x, A510).
5. Open the directory with the unpacked archive. Execute file: for windows - runit-win.bat; for Linux - runit-linux.sh.
The root is received!
6. Now you will have to install the following programs:
SuperUser APK
Titanium Backup
At first it is necessary to start the Superuser program, at least 1 time after receiving root. And only then programs that require root access.

ATTENTION!
Don't install Busybox! It is already installed and established! If you reinstall it, some programs will become unable to access root permissions!

Change:
The error of final check of receiving root is corrected (The messaging that "root" isn't received, though it was not so)
Support of A510 of tablets is improved

This method uses the 'mempodroid' exploit and some workings out by ZeroNull and vdsirotkin (4pda.ru).

List of rooting versions:
New - ICS_rooting_A10x_A5xx.zip
Old - ICS_rooting.zip

PS: I understand English rather badly, but I'll try to help, if it is necessary. :)
PS2: Command "Mount ro/rw" for directory /system (partition) - works perfectly!
PS3: This method does not work on the A511 tablets

Just tried this and it works perfectly as described; tested on Linux Mint 12, the su binary is even the latest, superuser is required from the market to grant permissions of course.

Thanks for this post ZeroNull.

I couldn't try Crossix's great .bat as we're a Windows free household, and the Missus keeps forgetting her laptop! This filled the gap nicely, will try to see what I can do with memory management now.

Thanks!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. I can now load Siraxis on here and start gaming via PS3 wireless controller.

Not only is this the best 7incher on the market, you can get it for under $300

thanx! what will happen if i'll try this over the crossix one? is it better to wipe the device and start from a clean installation?

And, it already mount r/w or i need to do it manually?


thanx again!

Did this over crossix and worked fine. I can now R/O system folder. Didn't have to wipe.

Can you access /data/local without root on your tab? If so, try deleting this folder and then running the process again, that's all I can think of.

Awesome! It all worked! :) Thanks a bunch!

I did the other root from before, this time I just deleted the folder /data/local/tools and then ran your script. Maybe you should add that to the begining of your script as it will clean everything up from before? Or you could just use a new folder ;)

Either way, THANKS!

OH man thanks, it worked great. I did it right over crossix "double click" root and can now mount system r/w and back to r/o without doing anything else.

Would it be safe now to delete the data/local/rootme folder now that it's not being used as a loop?

Edit: I guess what I'm asking is, what would the clean up process be to clean up other rooting methods?

    Just so everyone knows, this root kit also works on the new Iconia A510.
    I just got my Acer Iconia A510 from Amazon this morning and decided to install the USB drivers and tried this rooting kit and low and behold I got full root access. :D:D:D:p:p:p

    Thanks ZeroNull!!!!

    Always please!

    Not at all :D
    I was afraid that something was translated incorrectly. But now everything is all right! :)

    We do have recoveries, CWM and TWRP, not sure what you are offering? Unless you mean a way to install them without unlocking, which is fine, but we lose use of recovery entirely that way. Or I'm just not understanding, in which case I apologize, I'm not trying to shoot you down or anything.

    Tapatalked from my Galaxy S II.

    Ah, right, that's what I was offering, sorry. No need for that then :)

    is this a permanent root? or temporary? it give r/w permission on system folder?
    Permanent :)
