FAQ

Q: I'm stuck inside a bootloop after rooting!!!11
A1: The system.img.gz you applied, wasn't suiting to the firmware version installed on your tablet. Download latest Acer firmware update ( !!! if available !!!), copy it on a micro sd card, plug it into your Iconia, go to recovery by holding Volume up and Power button while device is turned off. Then choose apply update from sd card.
A2: If you cannot apply any Acer firmware, because you always get a partition error while installing, you should do a reboot after you get the error. A user reported that this made her/his device boot into Android again, showing the new version in settings -> info. Good luck
A3: If your device is really bricked you could try bring it back to life. Here you find help: link1, link2, link3, link4 (many thanks to Gilly10, drmad and Hamza91)
A4 (B1-A71, B1-710, B1-711 only): Unbrick
A5: If the A1 - A4 didn't help. Send back the device to Acer. Tell them you tried to apply an update from sd card and ended up in this bootloop. Sending device back to Acer over UPS is free. Good luck!

Q: Successfully rooted, but still no root after rebooting!
A: Have you installed Superuser App from Google Play Store?
(B1-A71 only)Q: Cannot update, always getting ERROR: - Invalid partition setting; 17: fat 238e8000:888e8000; Instalation aborted.
A: Download "Invalid Partition Error" Patch.
(B1-A71 only)Q: I applied update from RV05RC05 to RV05RC06 but still it shows RV05RC05.
A: There is no RV05RC06. It is the RV05RC05. It got on Acers Download section with a RV05RC06 named zip file. But the content is 100% equal to RV05RC05.
Q: Toolkit fails or crashes for any reason and I don't know what to do.
A: Run it again with parameter -d, e.g.: toolkit.exe -d and post the entire output here.
Q: Root from scratch on Linux doesn't work because of Error message: 'No such file or directory bin/posix/64/adb'
A: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 libgcc1 zlib1g libncurses5 libsdl1.2debian
Q: Can i flash a custom recovery?
A: No, because bootloader is locked. You would brick your tablet.
Q: Are there Custom ROMs?
A: No, see answer above.
Q: Is my data wiped during root?
A: No.
Q: Do i lose root after factory reset or wipe date?
A: No.
Q: I get an error in Engineer mode entering telnet command.
A: If Swiftkey is installed / enabled try settings Google AOSP Keyboard as default.
Q: How can I start telnet server manually?
A: Try this.



What you can do with root:

Apply Supercharger V6 by zeppelinrox and significally speed up your tablet! [My small How-To]
Install Adaway, an ad-blocker for webbrowsers and apps containing ads.
Install ROM Toolbox and customize boot screen and other funny things.
Install Titanium Backup to Backup, Freeze, Uninstall any App and more.
Install Datasync to sync app data like save states between rooted devices.


What you can NOT do with root on these devices:

Change DPI
Flash Custom Recoveries
Flash Custom ROMs

I uploaded a new version where I added some commands that hopefully resolve the permissions issues.
The problem is, that I can't reproduce it.

Are you rooting the Iconia the first time? or did you already have root before?

Regarding the progress bar. It only appears when writing the system.img.gz

I have Windows 7 64 bit, btw.

I will try to fix it asap. The problem is, that I cannot reproduce it.
I assume that the chmod 777 /cache command that I do, before the adb push command fails with "Operation not permitted."
But this I still don't know how to fix. If someone knows, tell me!

error in v.0.2.3

Dear entonjackson,
thanks for your work and for the time you spend on it.
Unfortunately, I too have problems with the tool for Windows since version 0.2.0 and also with the latest version (0.2.3).
The error messages that I receive are identical (with the same line numbers) to those receiving cakadut in his last post.
I am trying to root Iconia for the first time.
I tried with Windows 7-32bit and Windows 7 64-bit.


My configuration:
Iconia B1-A71 8GB ROM, 512Mb ram
Android 4.1.2
kernel 3.4.0
Image version: Acer_AV051_B1-A71_RV04RC04_WW_GEN1
Build Number: Acer_AV051_B1-A71_1.174.00_WW_GE

I hope you can find the solution.
Thank you for sharing your work with us.

Ok, people. With pawitp's help I hopefully fixed the permissions bug.
The problem was, that i was trying to chmod the /cache directory directly from adb shell, which isn't possible. I forgot, that this needs to be done from telnet. So in 0.2.6 I'm setting permission with telnet. This should fix it!

Please report!
Good luck :fingers-crossed:

I will try to do a video tutorial, but it's very easy to do.
  1. Download and install Ex Dialer & Contacts.
  2. Launch the app.
  3. Dial *#*#ENGMODE#*#*.
  4. Swipe from right to left (to Connectivity). Then choose CDS Information and Network Utility.
  5. There you paste this command: /data/local/tmp/busybox telnetd -l /system/bin/sh -p 1234

Thanks entonjackson,
unfortunately with version 0.2.6 I can not get the ADB connection with the tablet. The message it gives me is:
"Trying to Establish ADB Connection (If this hangs, ADB Connection failed. CMD Shell Close and open a new one) ..."
and remains so without making the connection.
If I run the command 'adb devices' in another command line session, the device is seen correctly (0123456789ABCDEF device),
but when I run the new version (0.2.6) of the tool, the message is what I wrote above.

Thank you for your patience.

    Ok, got the tab. I'm setting every thing up (USB drivers, ADB, finding where USB damiliarebugging is etc). I fired-up the tool and went through some steps to get familiar with it, then a question popped in my head: The choices are "root" "unroot" etc so to "root from scratch" do i select "root"? Do i still move the prerooted image into the folder or not? I'm confused cause i seam to have read somewhere that the tool can read the image on the tab, fix it, then rewrite it back to the tab (i may be totally mistaken).

    Basically, what does "root from scratch" mean? is the same as "root" in the tool?

    Again, Thanks in advance.

    2013-12-05 UPDATE

    Since it's already version 0.8.1, user can finish root procedure and R/W Workaround automatically with the latest toolkit for A1-810, A1-811. My instructions for R/W Workaround may be no longer needed.

    Even there's a system.img.gz for your device, I still suggest you do root from scratch by yourself to prevent any problem.

    OK, let's get started

    Q:The choices are "root" "unroot" etc so to "root from scratch" do i select "root"?

    A:When you open toolkit.sh in linux, choose A1-810->root->There will be two choices, one is root from scratch, and the other one is root from prerooted system.img.gz. You should only move system.img.gz to the system_image folder if you have one, root from scratch does not require system.img.gz in system_image folder.

    Q:Basically, what does "root from scratch" mean? is the same as "root" in the tool?

    A:There are two ways to perform root in this toolkit. First is root from scratch, this will take files directly from your device and root it. After the toolkit puts an su into it, it will put the files back to your device so your tablet gets root permission(Of course you have to install supersu for sure). If it's root from prerooted system.img.gz, it means you use others system.img.gz made by root from scratch, which you can just download it for toolkit, and gets root permission by it.

    Can you give me your device's version information, so I can give you some help. You can find it in "about tablet". Seems like you are already using Linux. You can use the system.img.gz made by others if you have the same version on device. A prerooted system.img.gz will both work for windows and linux, follow the instructions below. Root from scratch only availiable for Linux, follow the For Linux section. I highly suggest you to read the R/W fix part first, so you can use most of the root required apps without problems.

    First of all, do you have the same version of system.img.gz in your device's "about tablet". If you do have the same version, download the system.img.gz and put it into the "system_image" folder. With the system.img.gz, you can easily root under windows.

    For Windows:
    First thing first, download the system.img.gz you need and put it into system_image folder.

    1.Download the latest toolkit then open the toolkit.exe

    2.Choose A1-810

    3.Choose Root

    4.Follow the toolkit's instructions and finish root

    5.Unplug till the root opertion is finished.

    If there's no same version of system.img.gz compare to your device, do the root under Linux. I myself used Lubuntu with Oracle VM VirtualBox.


    For Linux:
    1.Open a terminal

    2.Type "sudo su"

    3.Type "chmod 777 your toolkit.sh" Example: chmod 777 /root/toolkit.sh

    4.Type "your toolkit.sh" Example: /root/toolkit.sh

    5.Choose "A1-810"

    6.Choose "Root from scratch"(Or choose Root from prerooted system.img.gz if you have it. It's the same as Windows. Remember to put system.img.gz into system_image folder)

    7.Follow the toolkit's instructions and finish root

    8.Unplug till the root opertion is finished.

    The toolkit's version is now 0.7.6, and R/W Workaround feature is now fixed again. With 0.7.6, users don't have to apply R/W Fixes by themselves. Use 0.7.4 instead if users want to perform root safer. The followings were done with toolkit 0.7.4, lubuntu, A1-811. This will also work for A1-810(Thanks to treetop777)

    In order to make a system.img.gz with R/W fix, follow these instrutions

    You can only do the followings when you are performing root from scratch. If you're using root from prerooted system.img.gz, download the ones with R/W Workaround. If there's no system.img.gz for you, follow the instructions and make one by yourself.

    First of all, cancel the operation of the toolkit when it's copying system.img.gz back to your tablet. We don't have to finish the whole operation yet.

    Download the su.tgz https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bz5DDMjsS0KMdHpvbEk3Y1ZNVDA/edit?usp=sharing

    1.Open a terminal under Linux

    2.type "sudo su", you may have to type your password here.

    3.type "gzip -d your system.img.gz Example:gzip -d /root/toolkit/system.img.gz(if your system.img.gz is under /root/toolkit)", now you have your system.img

    4.type "mkdir /mnt/a1(mkdir means make a folder, so here it means I make a folder named a1 under /mnt)"

    5.type "mount -o loop your system.img /mnt/a1 Example: mount -o loop /root/toolkit/system.img /mnt/a1"

    6.Place the su.tgz under any folder (In this example I put my su.tgz under /root)

    7.back to terminal, and type "cd /mnt/a1; tar zxvf your su.tgz Example: cd /mnt/a1; tar zxvf /root/su.tgz"

    Edit, thanks to fREAST0
    7.5. type "chmod 6755 /mnt/a1/xbin/su; chmod 6755 /mnt/a1/bin/su"

    8.type "cd /root; umount /mnt/a1"

    9.type "gzip -9v your system.img Example: gzip -9v /root/toolkit/system.img", now you have your system.img.gz back.

    10.Congradulations, you have a system.img.gz with R/W Workaround now, put it back into /system_image and root from prerooted system.img.gz, finish the opertion and you device will be rooted.

    2013-10-23 Update

    If users are facing problems even if you have R/W Workaround, try to delete or rename the /system/bin/su to make the /system/xbin/su work. I'm not quite sure, but my root permission is working fine without /system/bin/su and I can update my su binary with supersu.
