    Here are the final steps I took to root a Streamachine ST13 with Android 4.4.4.

    This is mostly copied from http://androidforums.com/threads/guide-root-rooting-lg-leon-with-supersu.946345/

    A big thanks to TerryG4 for the Android Forums post that finally worked and @Chainfire for SuperSU.

    I'm happy the KingRoot application exists, but it doesn't tell you which exploit it uses, and it installs all of their bloatware which this and many posts are focused on removing.

    From the play store:
    Install Root Browser by JRummy Apps Inc
    Install Root Checker Basic by joeykrim​

    Enable developer mode:
    Settings -> About Tablet: Touch Build Number 7 times​
    Enable USB debugging
    Settings -> Developer Options: Enable USB debugging​
    Enable non-play store apk's:
    Settings -> Security: Enable Unknown Sources​

    Files (I found various un-labled versions of files, some worked and some didn't):
    SuperSU v2.49: package: name='eu.chainfire.supersu' versionCode='249' versionName='2.49' platformBuildVersionName='5.0.1-1624448' (this version worked, others did not)
    KingRoot v4.5.0: package: name='com.kingroot.kinguser' versionCode='120' versionName='4.5.0' platformBuildVersionName='4.1.2-1425332' (v4.0 failed to root the tablet, newer versions, 4.9.2, I didn't try again to see if the process would remove them but do root the tablet)
    Busybox: Size 1,727,948 bytes.
    Su: Size 133,472 bytes.
    Use Android Development Bridge, ADB, to load 4 files.On windows with Android Studio 2.1, it's located in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\platform-tools>. Save the 4 attached files to your adb directory, or modify the paths below.
    Code (Text):
    1. cd C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\platform-tools>
    2. adb push su /sdcard/Download
    3. adb push busybox /sdcard/Download
    4. adb push com.kingroot.kinguser-4.5.0-120-minAPI8.apk /sdcard/Download
    5. adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Download
    6.  
    On the tablet, start Root Browser and install KingRoot 4.5 from the download directory. Swipe through it's two splash screens, then click "Try It".

    On the computer, start an adb shell, then elevate yourself, su:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell
    2. su
    3.  
    On the tablet, allow the permissions elevation.

    On the computer:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. mount -o remount,rw /system
    3. cat /sdcard/Download/su >/system/xbin/daemonsu && chmod 0755 /system/xbin/daemonsu
    4. cat /sdcard/Download/busybox >/system/xbin/busybox && chmod 0755 /system/xbin/busybox
    5. daemonsu -d &
    6.  
    On the tablet, go back to the KingRoot app, go to settings (gear in upper right corner), Root Authorization Settings, and click Remove Root Permission. Ok/accept it's warnings and let it uninstall itself.

    On the computer:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. cat /sdcard/Download/su >/system/xbin/su && chmod 0755 /system/xbin/su
    3. busybox chattr -ia /system/xbin/ku.sud
    4. busybox chattr -ia /system/xbin/supolicy
    5. rm /system/xbin/ku.sud
    6. rm /system/xbin/supolicy
    7. rm /system/bin/rt.sh
    8. rm /system/bin/install-recovery.sh
    9. rm /system/bin/start-ssh
    10. busybox chattr -ia /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    11. busybox chattr -ia /system/etc/install-recovery.sh-ku.bak
    12. rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    13. rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh-ku.bak
    14. rm /system/etc/install_recovery.sh
    15. rm /system/usr/icu/icusuflag.conf
    16. rm -rf /system/usr/iku
    17. rm /system/kroot_*

    19. rm -rf /sdcard/Kingroot
    20. rm -rf /data/data-lib/com.kingroot.RushRoot
    21. rm -rf /data/data-lib/com.kingroot.kinguser
    22. rm -rf /data/data-lib/king
    23.  
    On the tablet, install SuperSU from the apk on the tablet through Root Browser. Let SuperSU update itself, normal, and reboot.

    Root check with Root Checker, telling SuperSU to allow Root Checker.

    Run SuperSU, let it update itself, normal, and reboot.

    Remove Purify.

    Congratulations, you now have a rooted Streamachine ST13, and the root persists through reboots.

    A couple of notes:
    iRoot 3.0.0 failed.
    TowelRoot failed.
    KingOroot 3.1 did root the tablet, but I could not get it removed and SuperSU installed.
    Super-Sume v6.7 did not work.​
