Many have used the SuperOneClick software for Root purposes and some have encountered the “Wait for Device” problem.
There are usually 3 reasons for this to happen.
1. Your ADB/USB drivers are not properly installed.
2. You are not using the latest SuperOneClick Version.
3. You installed the system update and since then SuperOneClick is not working.
I. INSTALLING ADB/USB DRIVERS
1. Install PdaNet. Just follow the instructions and it will automatically install the drivers.
2. Once the drivers are installed, try again to root from SuperOneClick.
II. INSTALL THE LATEST SUPERONECLICK v2.3.3
Install the SuperOneClick v2.3.3 and try to root now. Check for newer versions of SuperOneClick from http://www.shortfuse.org/
III. A1- ROOTER METHOD
Although this has now been tried on quite a few devices with no problems, there is always a small risk of damage or problems due to bugs in the recovery or its installation. In the event that something goes wrong, i am not liable for any damage incurred. It is up to you to decide if you want to take this risk. If you are not comfortable with the risk, then do not attempt to proceed
- If you have installed the system update, SuperOneClick will not work. You will have to use A1-Rooter.
- Download A1 rooter.zip.
- Put this zip file in your internal storage sdcard such that the full path is /sdacard/A1_rooter.
- Download ClockworkMod for Ideapad A1
- Copy this file to the root of the internal SD card and rename it to update.zip (so the full path should be /sdcard/update.zip)
- Power down the Ideapad.
- Hold down volume down and turn the power back on, keeping volume down held until the tablet boots up to an image of an arrow out of a box with an android (this is the stock recovery).
- Wait whilst Clockworkmod recovery installs. The progress bar should fill up.
- Afterwards you should see a blue menu of clockmoderecovery.
- Go to install zip menu item.
- Install zip from internal storage
- Select A1-rooter.zip
- Installing should be done in seconds.
- Go back and reboot to android.
- Enjoy, your Ideapad A1 has been successfully been rooted.
