    I spent many unsuccessful hours but finally found an app that requires no pc and gives full root permission.....download 4shared in playstore, make account, and search for KingRoot....install and follow directions. ..WORKS 100 PERCENT! !!

    I did this and got a screen that was in Chinese. Since I am not fluent in Cantonese or Mandarin I could not procede. Any way to translate?

    Just click on the giant circle with the lock on it and wait. When it complete, you will get a green check mark that is unmistakable as "success". It rooted, but I had to install SU manually to get it to work.

    RCA is a badge name for TCL(Chinese), and if trying to root using Kingo(also Chinese), be very careful and do so at your own risk. There's a very real chance your tablet could be irreparably bricked.

    Yeh, being fluent in technical Chinese does help sometimes with these things. If you're unsure of what it says, don't proceed.

    If you need some translation done, post some screenshots.

    Hi guys, its April 13, 15 and the big lollipop tablet upgrade release has come and gone. Any clue if the pro 10 is gonna get it? My lg pad already did but its just too small for my needs. Thanks

    i bought the new Lollipop flavored Pro 10 II. Still having trouble rooting. Didn't download pdanet to my pc. Maybe that's why I didn't get root...cause I didn't have enough drivers in Windows. I'll try your approach wolfy123456. Fingers crossed!

    Okay...downloaded PDAnet into my Windows pc. Got nothing...no root!
    Took about 10mins. to run, and it failed. Still stuck with "dissabled" apps I can't uninstall! Grrr!
    This is the first Android device I've ever owned that I can't root!!!

    Update...got it rooted with Kingroot. It works with no fc's!
    Now to find TWRP recovery for it!

    I've looked too. So far nothing! This tablet has MTK8127 chipsets. Kingroot works on MTK devices without issue. XDA Devs have a post where you can get TWRP recovery.
    Root & recovery is all we have right now. RCA hasn't made the source code available to make custom roms from!

    Also make sure you do a complete nandroid backup ASAP after rooting.

    Go howling at TCL or whomever about that, they're sometimes not that good at complying with the GPL in the PRC. But then on the other hand, MTK devices are often not good things for custom ROM developments, because of draconian Mediatek NDAs that manufacturers have to comply with AFAIK. and so source code for certain drivers and kernel modules that you might need to build a ROM are just not available.

    I was trying to load art uverse on mine, kept getting message saying I had the wrong version of android.. Downloaded kingroot, and without a computer, rooted my tablet. Got rid of all the bloatware, and now half a dozen programs are working fine.

    Thanks for the help!!

    Hey guys, if you have the Pro 10 2 with the mt8127 our devices are very similar. just be careful what you flash and never flash the preloader!!! that is a good rule of thumb.. ;)
