    How to root Dropad A9N/MagicTab M1 /Gen-E N701 - method z4root



    Once I got my Dropad A9N sought a method to make it in a rooted android devise. The method that worked for me:

    1) Download and install z4root.apk - z4root.1.3.0.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    2) Enable debugging on your USB Tab by pressing the Menu button, then tapping Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging.

    3. Open z4root and press the "Root" button.

    4. Do not panic When the Tab restarts. It's Supposed to do that.

    When itís fully booted, you wonít get any kind of confirmation of your success.

    P.S My Dropad is identified in about android menu as model number: broncho A701n

    Thanks for this guide.
    Just wonder, what is the reason for rooting this device?

    Some reasons to turn in a rooted tab

    Read here: Top 10 Reasons To Root Your Android Phone

    And the only reason the I see to not upgrade would be the rooting possibly breaks the tab warranty.

    So how is your device better now when its rooted?

    The only reason i would root my tablet today is the last one:
    Because you can!

    Dont worry about the warranty, i have not seen any Chinese warranty policy mention rooting, if you dont brake the hardware you are still good to go with your 12 months warranty.

    best reasons to root device :

    - use software like titanium backup (free) to backup/restore apps and apps data
    - remove some apps from system partition. i deleted the system gmail.apk so i can now install latest gmail version from the market and get it updated in the future

    I thought u can update the gmail app even though it is installed on the system partition.

    Btw, in the 1.10.9 ROM I posted in the other thread. I have already updated all the system app to latest version at the time of posting including Gmail.

    Thats good reasons. Another may be to install and use Chainfire3D.

    I have started an interesting thread on rooting:
