Hi Nika, as I said, I ran the program initially. I got the completed root message on one line, but below that came an IOerror?
I left it a while to confirm it wasn't doing anything more and closed it down. I then rebooted, downloaded superuser which gave me an empty log file (no other options)! I also checked with rootchecker and it said I wasn't rooted.
I then tried the program again, this time after the root message, I got the full complete text saying it was successful and was now rooted. I closed the software on the PC, unplugged the USB cable and rebooted again. Rootchecker still said I wasn't rooted. I downloaded SuperSu and still no options were available, so it would appear the tab is definitely not rooted?
That's where I am at the moment.
EDIT: I meant to say that the phone appeared rooted when I got it, before I stupidly tried to change something in build.prop. After that, I was locked out of it, but managed to get it back working using Firediamond's 'cure'. I am happy that it is working perfectly again, but would like it rooted to swap apps to SD. I am quite sure the system image was the suggested rooted one when I went through the process in this thread!
Just downloaded Superuser again and still nothing?
Is it worth trying this root program again?
Hi again Nika, I have been going over this and over this again and I think I may have found one omission I may have made in the process?
Following Firediamond's nice tutorial I believe I may have booted the tablet into Android as normal after completion? I just noticed at the bottom that it states "boot into recovery" which I don't think I did? Would this affect the end results? If you think this is possible, I shall go through this process tonight again when I get home (correctly this time)!
I will update this thread with my results.
Still no further forward? I ran the unlocker from the pastebin url thanks to Firediamond. (This time there were fewer boxes checked though MBR, LOGO, ANDROID etc obviously from the different scatter file)????
I then ran the 'invalid partition' fix.
I then ran this tool using the suggested rooted image for my firmware and it said it was rooted.
Rebooted no problem.
RootChecker says 'Root access is not properly installed on this device' !
Superuser did ask me to give it permission though??? Which I did!
I am following everything as stated and still nowhere?
Sorry, I was away on holiday for a week so no time yet to respond. As stated in previous responses I will need to know what choices you made while doing the root process. So:
1. You start Ubuntu
2. You start .toolkit.py
3. You choose 3 for B1-A71
4. You choose 1 for Root
5. You choose 1 for Root from Scratch
6. You choose 2 for SuperSU
7. You choose Y for Make SDCard Writable
7. You choose Y for Doing it all at once
8. Then you see on screen of the Tab it runs the telnet daemon
9. You see R...O....O....T eventually
10. You reboot
After this you should have root access. If not, please let me know what you did differently in the above steps
I have a A1-810 and for some reason when I run this it just sits at the Modem Reset Delay? It puts 1234 and than sits on the screen and the program closes. Can you please assist? Its been on this screen for 10 min?
Any Ideas. I just want Root thats it.

I rebooted the tablet and now its sitting at RUN COMMAND.... Nothing happens. Blinking curser and nothing gets typed in. I have rooted many devices and this is just weird. should I try a different cable? Please advise
**EDIT** Can you repost the rooted system image for A1-810? It says its not longer found. I was able to get this going if I just wait. But it fails because I don't have the system image in the folder. I am pulling my own image from the device now but I do not know how thats going to work with out being pre rooted. Please advise.
It sounds like it's choosing the wrong buttons to press. Can you send me a screenshot of that screen? Also, what ROM version do you have? Which of the system images are you looking for? I don't think a repository exists for the img's uploaded by others, so I'm afraid you need to ask other owners to post their system img's whenever they root their device...
Enyone that owns an ACER with 3G/WCDMA/2G support and can't root it or properly Unlock BL:
via adb or terminal emulator:
And give me the output (i'm working on something ...)
I can get you the build.prop from all of the SD update files of many acer devices. Let me know which ones you want (A1-811 with KK, S1 / S510 with KK, etc.).
Got a A3-A10 today (it is updated to 4.4.2) and want to root, i dl the Stock image from the first post (think it's the Kitkat prerooted one?)
and pulled my system image from the tab first, copied the downloaded image to the system_image folder and tried the root process (under W10),
i got this error:
2015/02/25 00:08:47: Don't touch the screen! I'm taking it over now

In the code I see it checks whether you have KK or JB and only the JB was added to the check:
elif "Acer_AV052_A3-A10_" in l:/ fw_version = l.split("Acer_AV052_A3-A10_").split("_WW_GEN1")
Just to make sure, what system.img did you select to upload to your device? Does a KK file exist and if it does, it should have RV05RC03 otherwise you may encounter bootloops. I can add a line in the code to fix the above issue but I really need to be sure of your selected system.img first . From the first post I seem to see nobody has yet rooted from scratch and only a stock system image is available. Which means you need to either root from scratch using ubuntu, or check whether the thread from FireDiamond (nowadays Shreps) has an SPFT method for installing CWM and then rooting the device...
whether that is at the root A1-811 using acer toolkit could not be installed CWM recovery?
because root access A1-811 I became lost when installed CWM recovery
pls help me all the master's:crying::crying::crying::crying:
You should either use CWM methods, or use the Toolkit. Not both. The CWM method might have also changed your system.img if you chose a full ROM? Strange, because it should only touch secuoff, bootloader and recovery blocks. Or did you flash a full ROM for recovery? In that case it overwrites the system.img with the stock image...
I am running stock RV26RC03_PA_CUS1, Can I use your tool and use RV26RC06_PA_CUS1?
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks for this tool, i have Rooted my Kitkat A3-A10 now with the other method (MTK / SPF Flash), anyways, thx
Very good. Make sure to let people know which thread you used and which steps you took
