    First it is important that your tablet is updated to android 4.2.2.
    I have read posts about the update bricking tablets if they are already rooted before updating and don't know of any way to recover this device once bricked.
    Framaroot over at xda worked for me with no issues.

    Yes, Framaroot works on bone stock out of the box and all the updates including the last 6 MB update for 4.2.2. I can confirm this. Root will be lost after each update, so you will have to run the app after each one. So there is no need to be updated to use this, but it is good advice. Also Framaroot has an option to unroot if you feel more secure doing it that way. But root is just the su binary and the app is optional for control of programs. Framaroot copies su to system/xbin then makes a symlink in system/bin to the binary, and installs SuperSu to system/app for program control/access. I think the other root method is what was causing bricks, but I never used that method. Just some general info that I thought might help.

    Thanks for posting.

    So what's the official root method?

    Go to settings/security and check the "unknown sources" box. Then, download the newest version of Framaroot. The link is in the original post. Install it, open it and click on the word "Boromir". I don't know if it's official, but it is effective. Merry Christmas!

    This doesn't seem to work for me maybe I should have done this before updating or maybe that would have undone this anyhow.

    Either way frama doesn't work for me and there is no other working method I can find at the moment to root the device.

    Any suggestions?

    Are you sure downloaded the newest version of frama? The old ones won't work.
