Here goes the cyanogenmod disclaimer. The same applies here.

1. Turn on usb debugging from developer settings.
2. Install drivers like this.
3. Download and install this.
4. Open and click Root(Make sure you're connected to the internet).
To unroot press the remove root button in the same application.
A1000F USERS PLEASE READ
Some A1000F users have reported that the device will turn off after rooting and won't start until you plug in the charging cable. After that it works fine. Refer to the comments below. If your device fails to start after rooting, please try this.
Keep in mind Lenovo will have an absolute right to deny your warranty claim(you are of course free to try, they may not even notice) if you give them a rooted device. So make sure you unroot the device before taking it to the service center, unless the device is completely dead.
Lenovo has finally rolled out an update for A1000G that increases the internal storage to 1.5gb.
I tried rooting my Lenovo A1000-F --- followed the instructions, installed PDANet and ran Kingo, which said the root was complete. When I clicked FINISH the screen on the tab went blank and now I can't get it to start.
Here's what I'm seeing after unplugging and plugging the USB back into the tab, which I hope isn't bricked.
Yes i can completely understand and I'm really sorry i won't be help you much till the 29th at least. You will have to look around for a solution by yourself or take it to the service centre. Otherwise you will have to wait till the 29th and then maybe i can help figure it out
Hi, i too was rooting the device with Kingo. The software showed that the root was successful but the tablet screen went off. I tried restarting but nothing happened. The tablet seemed to be on as my laptop showed USB device connected.
Then i rest the tablet by pressing the reset button using a pin.
Please search the instruction on how to reset the tablet if you dont know how to do it. I am unable to post any external link to show you that.
Hope this helps... Now i am trying to connect Pen Drives and 3G dongle to the tablet...
