How do I root my Azpen A727 tablet?

up vote 2 down vote accepted

I learned how to do this from here

I did this from a Linux PC with ADB installed. It may be possible from a Windows PC with ADB installed but I could never get the tablet to connect as an installer over USB on Windows.

Turns out it was dead simple, really, it came rooted. Here’s how I installed Superuser on it so I can use apps that use root.

  1. Download superuser.zip

  2. Unzip superuser.zip

  3. adb root (to run adb as root user on the tablet)

  4. adb remount

  5. adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/

  6. adb push armeabi/su /system/xbin/su

  7. adb shell chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su

  8. adb shell ln -s /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su

  9. wget https://github.com/koush/Superuser/raw/master/init.superuser.rc

  10. adb push init.superuser.rc /

    This worked for me, host is an Ubuntu 16.04 installation. I had to do everything as root though, ADB would not see the A727 as a user. – wb8nbs Nov 22 '16 at 15:10

I just finished rooting my Azpen A727. It was super easy.

I used 'Kingo Android ROOT' (https://www.kingoapp.com/android-root.htm) for Windows; It was literally as easy as one click and took all of 60 seconds.

    Cool! I could never get mine to connect to a Windows PC. – Organic Marble Feb 14 '16 at 14:06
