    This doesn’t work on mine. SuperSU.apk is installed…but the tablet isn’t rooted

    Hello! Tell me, please. How can I root my device with 1.1 firmware?

  3. Randy Riley

    Actually, the problem is solved. While my settings screen was showing I had v1.09…I went ahead and re-installed the firmware update anyway. After that, the root update worked like a charm. I haven’t tried it yet with the new v1.10 firmware…I’ve been on vacation.

    Thanks for this…it really works well.

    Works great on 1.1.0, but on newer version 1.1.2 doesn’t works.
    Installation is aborted for an error with partition table.

    Hi Tom, I get a ifive mini 3GS with FW 2.0.1, is right your procedure?
    If not, could you help me to find a correct way for me having the last firmware?
    Many thanks … Alex
