When I bought this tablet about a month ago I'm pretty sure it had ICS on it. but i did some firmware updates and now my version is at 4.1.1, which i'm assuming is Jellybean. But anyways, i want to root it and ran into a bit of trouble. I found a guide that claims the root procedure for ASUS's Prime tablet also works for the TF700T/Infinity. So i downloaded the drivers and installed them, as well as the DebugfsRoot_Generic_v2.3 files.I also made sure to run the included batch (.bat) file as Administrator. it went thru the usual yadayada as i followed the instructions, and then i hit these errors: Waiting for device to be detected... * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * Found system partition at: /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 Step 1 - Pushing files... failed to copy 'debugfs' to '/data/local//debugfs': Permission denied failed to copy 'su' to '/data/local//su': Permission denied failed to copy 'debugfsinput' to '/data/local//debugfsinput': Permission denied failed on '/data/local/tmp' - Permission denied link failed File exists Rebooting... Once your devices has finished restarting, Press any key to continue . . . As you can see, the files failed to copy and permissions were denied, even though i followed the instructions to the letter. i have done nothing else to this tablet except install some non-root apps from Google Play, and the firmware updates. After doing all this i did a bit of research and found that this doesnt work for rooting Jellybean. So my question is, is there something i can do to make the above method work? if not, then how about a method for obtaining root after Jellybean is installed? or perhaps a guide to rolling back to ICS so i can then root using the above guide, and then update to JB while still retaining root? i'm not open to unlocking the bootloader, since that voids the warranty (which i dont really care much about, but still.....) and, more importantly, prevents me from applying OTA firmware/system updates. I dont plan on installing any custom ROMs, dualbooting alongside Windows 8, etc, so i see no need to unlock the bootloader, since it's normally/rarely necessary to obtain root on a device. I have bricked some phones in the past so i'll need something that's nearly foolproof, while still being able to run the latest Adroid JB version. I also tried restoring my tablet to the factory defaults via the menu functions, but i'm still at 4.1.1. Well, if anyone can help then please reply soon. Thanks! EDIT: also forgot to mention that i tried to use Win 8 Pro RTM x64 to do the root procedure. i really dont think that would have caused it to fail, but it's entirely possible. when i initially plugged my tablet into the laptop it appeared in Windows Explorer but Device Manager showed my tablet as having driver issues (exclamation mark [!] beside the driver's name). So i manually installed the drivers as it was listed in the root guide.
