I searched for several hours and tried numerous different rootkits, but none of them worked.
There seems to be someone providing a method for Memo Pad 7 HD, but I didn't want to try it out of fear that it would semi-brick my device (particularly the bootloader).

I love the device though. Only problem is that the screen is too reflective.

Hi there. I'd like to ask how is the translation going? I tried to read the whole procedure in German with Google translator, and couldn't get anything clear enough to try to do it...:eek:

Oh, and no pressure meant! :D

Thank you very much in advance!!

1.Download the two links in the post (system.img.gz and superuser.apk)


Put system.img.gz and superuser.apk in the same folder as adb.exe.


2. Put the tablet into bootloader mode (Power+Vol Up)


3. Run these commands in command prompt with administrator priviledges:

fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot erase system
fastboot flash system system.img.gz

5. Reboot and again run in command prompt

adb install Superuser.apk

Many thanks!!!!!

Thank you very much, Matt, for the info. I think I'd better wait a little bit longer to gain root access, not really needing root right now..

Alright, I have to confess I am not sure I could get it rooted with that method, still a newbie! xD. I will wait for a easier one-click root.

Thank you very much though! ;)

O. T. Theoretically this device can even run windows 8, can't it?

Back in thread. I think it's even easier than what described above:

1) Make sure that your device is updated with the last firmware 4.6.2, check the OTA updates on your tablet.
2) If you don't have it already installed, download and install fastboot here.
3) Download and install Intel USB drivers from here.
4) Download the rooted system image from here and move in the directory where you have fastboot installed (see point 2).
5) Reboot you tablet in download mode by pressing Power + vol up.
6) Launch a command window and type fastboot flash system system_4_6_2_root.img.gz

Voila, your device is rooted, you just need to download from the market the SuperSU app.
I didn't lose any setting / application.

All the information is taken from the german forum. Thanks to them.

Got my memo pad fhd 10! I personally think it's pretty amazing. Stock launcher is lacking but with nova is a LOT better. Still need to root as I would like to freeze some of the junk. It's very snappy and the screen looks great. Extremely happy with the purchase but would love to see some devs jump on it.

Also, just did some browser hopping. Boat browser is complete butter on this. Glassy smooth and quick, much better than chrome.

system img gz cannot be reached

Unfortunately the link you mention to get system[dot]img[dot]gz is not valid anymore.
can you tell me where I can find it, or if any system[dot]img[dot]gz file can fit for asus fhd 10, android version 4.2.2?

Thanks in advance

Jacques



My friend,

have a look at my post inside german forum!
I rooted the memo pad successfully :)

OTA Updater misery

Hello Linus Plus

I run Android 4.2.2

I am trying to follow your process. Phases 2,3,4,5 are ok
but the first is not:
when I go to OTA update I get:
"Unsupported ROM
The ROM developer has not enabled support for the OTA
updater. ..."

What should I do?

Thanks for your help

Thanks

Jacques

My mistake, it works

I finally understood that 4.6.2 refers to the build number and not to the Android version.

Therefore I could go through all of the process and the device is rooted now.

thanks a lot, your process is very easy

I was foolish enough to upgrade from rooted 4.6.2 to 4.7.0 and i keep getting crashes.. the worst crash is the keyboards.. none of them work.. cant do anything with my memopad at all.. anyone know if it's possible to re-flash the cracked 4.6.2 image?? On asus site they say that the firmware u download from there cant be used to downgrade... really hope thats wrong since the latest firmware on their site is 4.6.2 and i've got 4.7.0 which i got through OTA

    I understand.. well the good news is you and your Wife are 100% happy (Me too with my G-Pad 8.3) with what you have.. and that's a good thing.. ;)
    Don't worry about the watch.. it's just a fad.. after a few weeks you would wonder why you spent so much money on it.. give them a year.. they'll be $99.95. :cool:

    I really hope so because i really like the concept... but not the ones from Samy or Sony... They are too much for a watch and overpriced.

    Pebble is nice because it does not look like a dorky accessory and it does all the stuff one needs on a watch.

    Hey guys,

    I am running into an issue when trying to load system_4_6_2_root.img.gz

    So far I've run,

    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot erase userdata
    fastboot erase system

    But when I try to do "fastboot flash system_4_6_2_root.img.gz" it says "error cannot open system_4_6_2_root.img.gz"
    And of course, the file is in the same folder as the adb and flashboot .exe's.

    And now I can't get back into my tablet cause everything is erased. What should I do at this point? Thanks for the help in advance.

    Is it not supposed to have the img file unzipped 1st? I'm not sure because last time i flash a device was my TF101 3 months ago :p and i cant remember if it was zipped or not...
