I'm trying to get root access on a toshiba AT300 android tablet.

I found this post from google where this guy has tried to get root access.


the problem is that when I run the RunMe.bat file and choose option 1 to root he device a screen pops on my tablet will the heading "Full restore". It asks me to enter the device encryption password below.

I am not sure on where to get my encryption password from. I left it blank and press the "restore my data" button at the bottom of the screen

While the script runs there is a permission problem that I do not understand So I am pasting the whole script below :

= This script will root your Android phone with adb restore function =
= Script by Bin4ry (thanks to Goroh_kun and tkymgr for the idea)     =
=             Idea for Tablet S from Fi01_IS01                       =
=                      (13.10.2012) v15                              =

Device type:
1) Normal
2) Special (for example: Sony Tablet S, Medion Lifetab)

x) Unroot

Make a choice: 1
Checking if i should run in Normal Mode or special Sony Mode

I found a Ubuntu ARM version that I want to Install and run on my toshiba AT300 once I am able to root it.

Can someone please help me figure out how to get root access on this device?


It looks to me like your device has had encryption enabled on it. If that's the case, you'll have to have the encryption password before you can root it. Was this device issued by your work? I doubt it came encrypted by default, since it adds overhead. I could be wrong though- this is a bit out of my depth too.
