    A Big Fat Disclaimer: "As always, you are ultimately responsible for any root-related activities on your phone."
    You should understand not only the benefits of rooting, but also any possible consequences (voided warranty, boot-loops, bricking, etc.) that might occur as a result of your root-related actions.

    AndroidForums.com / Phandroid.com, its owner, and staff are not liable for any root actions you might undertake as a result of information used from this site.

    Reading, researching, understanding, and carefully following the published steps and instructions can go a long way towards helping to make your rooting efforts a successful one.

    Ok here is a guide to get root access for your HP Slate 7, this is a modified guide of instructions from stat'o'flow ,Thank you stat, on XDA back in January for a universal root for tablets here is the main link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2092349 . Some items I added will make it a little easier to gain root access.

    A couple of things first, you’re going to have to be patient as this process may not work the first time as the software can be a bit buggy and after playing with this for a couple of days and doing it a certain way it will work.

    On your PC:

    1. Install USB/ADB drivers from your manufacturer's website

    2. Install & connect via Management Tools:

    device specific ADB-drivers

    3. Download & install this Chinese software from http://www.shuame.com/, thank you shuame.....

    In case you don't understand what you do:

    On Website press blue download-button with arrow pointing downwards

    The download is a bit slow (10kb/sec), but is only 10mb

    4. On your device: turn on USB-debugging

    On your PC:

    5. Run Software, then plug your device to USB-Port, wait until it has been recognized it (in
    my case i had to click some dialogues...)

    6. Run software from Shuame.com (titled ˢ
