Hi all,

yesterday I succeeded in rooting the new ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7.

Model-Number: ME173X
Android version: 4.2.1
Kernel version: 3.4.5
HD 7 Build: ME173X_WW_User_4.2.1.75146_20130523 release keys

PC operating system: Win.. XP

USB-Driver I used (but there's WdfCoInstaller.dll missing, which I already had on my PC):
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeePAD/ME172V/ASUS_Android_USB_drivers_for_Windows_20130415.zip

Maybe this more complete package would work, too (I didn't try that):
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeePAD/TF101/ASUS_Android_USB_drivers_for_Windows.zip

Method to root is by using motochopper.

You can follow the next steps in general as described in
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=40129120&postcount=1

One important thing:
motochopper didn't recognize my HD7 at once, so I did the following
(while being connected with PC via USB and motochopper waiting for device):
While USB debugging activated, go to USB settings an connect it as
integrated CD drive. motochopper will automatically recognize it
and continue with rooting process.

And last but not least:
As always, all you do is your own risk and I'm not responsible for any damage.

Good luck

-----------------------------

EDIT 2013-07-06:

Above procedure for rooting works with the new HD7 update, too (but you have to re-root after the update).
Build version after the update: ME173X_WW_user_4.2.2.51129_20130619 release-keys

-----------------------------

Description for Linux users:

- use motochopper package from link above

- login as root

- extract package
- open console and change to directory where you extracted the package
- chmod +x adb.linux
- chmod +x run.sh

- Check your HD7 will be recognized:
-> ./adb.linux status-window
-> shows "State: unknown"

-> connect HD7 (with usb debugging enabled, connecting as MTP device)
-> above started adb command should show now "State: device"
-> HD7 recognized - greatful, you're ready ;)

-> press Strg-C to abort

- (optional) for more information about your HD7 you can enter: ./adb.linux devices -l
-> this should show something like: D6OKCXXXXXXX device usb:1-3 product:WW_memo model:ME173X device:ME173X

- ./run.sh
-> follow instructions on screen

- you're done :)

Hi guys. So here is the situation. First of all I don't know much about rooting and my build number is ME173X_RUS_user_4.2.2.91525_20130711
I am a little bit worried about that.. So will this method work for me too?
android version 4.2.1
kernel version 3.4.5
build version ME173X_RUS_user_4.2.2.91525_20130711
thanks beforehand. any answers will be appreciated :)
For your version, you can use motochopper or Framaroot.

Re: Root Asus MeMO Pad HD 7

I was able to sucessfully root my Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 using Kingo Root. It actually worked perfectly and the process was simple only took a couple of minutes to do! Here is a link to the thread I used from here on XDA . I have found that Kingo Root works well on rooting all of my android devices!

I have same problem here, but it happens when I do reboot below 20%.


strange because my tablet shows that screen under 16%

Makes a reboot when below 20% to see if it connects normally.



There are users who do not have this problem, but others with this defect...

    Dont worry about the recovery. I already made two

    And let me say this again, if any of you are working on an bootloader unlock solution, be carefull with the mount points.
    Like i said, there is an dummy mount point, and the recovery part. id is symlinked to another part. Im still working on it

    Why don't you make another thread and keep us updated on your progress? Hopefully, it'll also attract more devs and help in getting us a subforum as well.

    OK.
    If i get it done, of course i will open an new thread, and keep you all up to date.

    Working at the moment on an CWM Based recovery for our ASUS.

    The problem now, is the proctection ASUS put on the Bootloader...
    And there is one "service" that for what i gather, records the amount of times , the spt/boot/recovery partion is flashed...

    I really dont like what ASUS is doing with this "protection" system.
