    I am having issues rooting my S7 Slim. I can get root, but it goes away after a reboot.
    I tried z4root and UniversalAndRoot with no success. Both give me a fail when I run them. So I tried to use SuperOnceClick to root the device, this just locked up.
    So I was finally able to get temp root by running these commands:

    adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp
    adb push su-v2 /data/local/tmp
    adb push busybox /data/local/tmp
    adb shell
    $ cd /data/local/tmp
    $ ./busybox chmod 755 psneuter
    $ psneuter

    adb remount
    adb shell

    # cd /data/local/tmp
    # ./busybox mv su-v2 /system/xbin/su
    # ./busybox chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
    # ./busybox chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
    # ./busybox cp /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su
    # ./busybox chown 0.2000 /system/bin/su

    # ./busybox cp busybox /system/xbin
    # ./busybox chmod 0755 /system/xbin/busybox
    # ./busybox chown 0.2000 /system/xbin/busybox
    # exit

    adb install Superuser.apk
    adb reboot

    The files that I pushed over all came from the SuperOneClick.zip file.

    Superuser installed ok and even updates without any issues, but when I reboot I lose root. Any ideas?

    I am stuck and am not sure what to do from here.

    Nevermind, apparently I'm a retard, I was trying to use Ubuntu to root my tablet. I switched over to the wife's Windows 7 PC and SuperOneClick worked just fine and I now have root.

    Thanks for looking.

    Gingerbreak works OK also - much easier
