New Universal Root Method for 'Most' ICS and Jelly Bean Devices
UPDATE: We have received several reports from users who tried this that it does not work. If someone figures out a way to get this to work, please post in the thread. In the mean-time, we will call this one a "dud."
Here's proof positive that the developers in the Android community are the best in the world. One of the devs over at XDA, Bin4ry, just developed a new universal root method that is specifically for Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices. Supposedly, his root method should be compatibile with nearly all devices that can run stock versions of these two versions of Android. Here's a quote from his thread, followed by some downloads and instructions,
Make sure you hit up the source link below for more detailed instructions (and for any updates), but here's a quick summary with a download link below,
i made a small script which is able to root ICS/JB phones. It uses a remount timing issue in Androids "adb restore" service.
So normally it should work on nearly all ICS/JB devices, for some it won't but the idea may work in a slightly modded version
There is a special case for Xperia T and Xperia S,P etc. phones, this phones run ICS but don't have android's native restore with adb, Sony has added a own custom "Backup&Restore" app, the script handles this cases too, just choose the correct option!
- Download file and extract it from here: Download
- Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions
Let us know what you think in the thread!

It DID change my wallpaper tho... had to fix that.
(Like THAT is something to bytch about!!!
It is with great sadness that I can report that this procedure will not work on my DK1031/m799ca10" InfoTMIC tablet... but it was never able to connect thu the PC for folder access (so far, at least).
I rooted it by removing the internal TF card and 'inserting' the things manually...
Is that limitation a function of the 'iNAND' (non-NAND storage) design... that they cannot/will not set up such a thing?
Or is it more a matter of not knowing what 'it thinks it is'...???
Either way, I will watch to see if others have the same problem.
The 7" eMATIC EGL25BL (m1099ca) DOES and DID work GREAT!
Def NOT a DUD!!!!
I got it to work without ANY PROBLEMs... and posted so.
I am willing to help others any way I can to get this working,
IF YOUR TABLET CANNOT BE SEEN in WINDOWS then it WILL NOT work at all. This Im sure of.
IF your tablet allows WINDOWS ACCESS to the local-disk files, then it SHOULD be able to do it... with DEBUGGING ENABLED.
With OPs permission, post the questions here and I will try to help,
you can go to the eMATIC section, eGlide subsection and the ROOTING eGlide EGL25BL thread... I will help there.
Interesting with the reports of 'no workee' Im the only one who has had success with it?
No good on Gpad G16a with ICS 4.0.3.
Any chance of future updates to resolve the .0.3 issues.?

Can you access the tablet's local-disk from usb-pc connect Did you remember to enable usb debugging?
Just did it on my BRAND-NEW XL Pro 2 (also eMATIC... also with usb acccess and usb debugging... took MAYBE one full minute.
The only issue I have with Tiny (EGL25BL) is that lack of Pacific Daylight Time... that's about it.
Potentially important info!!!!
It is beginning to look like I was able to use this method because I HAD ALLOWED THE SDK TO INSTALL the usb driver(s) for Android.
IF you install the usb driver package I suspect THAT will correct the problem(s) the folks had...
telefoane dual sim
Jelly bean is quite popular these days... which makes me curious about this topic.....
Great post, thank you dgstorm!
These 'not working' reports might be Duds themselves - could originate from people who do not have usb drivers installed, etc, and no idea how to fix the issue.
The file is only 2 MB, a quick download.
Testing it will be a breeze - adb files ARE included in the package, no need for SDK, JDK stuff. Unpack, run a ''Run_me.bat'' script and watch it work.
Anyone trying this, please let us know your experience. Thank you.
