I am having trouble trying to root my Acer Iconia A100 with Android 4.0.3. I have tried several rooting methods and they always fail.
I have the USB debugging enabled, and all the adblock or antivirus apps are off.
I've tried all of these:
Am I just missing a step somewhere?
Here is the report from the SRSroot app:

On the Kingo, when I run the Windows application to root the Android it always says that rooting was successful, but when I try to do anything that requires root (like installing busybox) on the Android, it always fails. Then when I restart the android the rooting is gone.
So, I can root it with Kingo, and if I use SRSRoot after that, it says the android is, indeed rooted, but it doesn't persist. When I reboot the Android then run the SRSrootkit then it sees that the Android is not rooted (even though it seemed to be before reboot) and it cannot root it itself.
Using the unlockr method, I find that the batch file reports
mkdir failed for /data/local/tools, permission denied with subsequent permissions errors. And so that method is not able to get root either.
