    Polaroid S10...root???

    Hey guys,

    I just got a Polaroid S10 tablet from Kohl's (which I may or may not keep). It's running JB 4.2.2, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any root exploits that will work with it.

    And my hunch is that it has an Allwinner processor.

    You may be right pizza dude. And it is a good chance indeed. It makes me wonder if its an actual onda tablet that's been rebranded

    Root S10

    Just replaced my 701C [a wonderful cheap tab thanks to Electrik's newest rom - because the usb port connection broke] with an S7. Great improvement over the 701C. Just ordered another one at $75 for Ebay to give the wife to replace her beat up 701C.

    Rooted it by downloading from 1MobileMarket SuperSU ver. 1.65 and then installed Google Services and Google Playstore apks.

    Hope this helps.

    Wait...you mean it's rooted out of the box? You just need to sideload a superuser app?

    Pizza-probably. Most of the Polaroids come with a stripped SU binary and is already 'rooted'. By adding/installing the superuser apk you're most likely just gaining the 'front end' to SU. I actually obtain root on several 'non-rooted' Polaroid tablets by using the SU binary that came with the 701c

    you can upgrade to have google play in polaroid website..they only offer this for A8, S7, S8, S10.
    so, you don't have to root the tablet. it is compatible to have google play store...
    and.. it is firmware update. you will notice big difference after this update.
    first, you should go to the site below to download file to desktop or laptop computer.

    http://southerntelecom.com/s10/index.html

    then, follow this instruction below. they only have instruction for A8 but it's same anyway.

    http://www.southerntelecom.com/polar..._guide_A8.html

    be sure to follow every steps.. this update comes with google map, google+, etc..
    good luck~!

    Thank you. I tried forever to find the "S" series download section but couldn't. I took the URL you gave me and changed the S10 to S8 and downloaded the update...

    FYI, here is an Antutu screen shot (of what I COULD get).

    Fresh out the box, no mods yet. Antutu and Superuser / SuperSU won't run, I can't get to root with ES File Explorer, etc, etc, etc, so maybe they changed something with the root access?

    Here are some screen shots (build looks like August 27, 2013?)

    not surprising, given the fact that it only mentions giving you Google play ;-)

    Root S10

    Download the new software update from Southern Telecom as it contains Google Play

    http://southerntelecom.com/s10/index.html

    and flash the tablet. Be sure to save anything you wish to keep as this update will erase the tablet. Then follow directions from link below:

    I will be releasing an S10 pre-rooted image soon. It will have identical options as the AS8 images I released - Google-updated, pre-rooted, TWRP, performance tweaks... Currently, I am working on the final touches for an image for the S7.. The S10 will follow the S7..

    Did you read my post incorrectly or just not understand it?

    I got a tablet that already came on the firmware with Google Play. I want to root it.

    I used a pretty universal method for tablets like s10 with a20 all winner it was just a zip file install from SD card in stock recovery. I see other people have diff root methods here such as kingo root or cydia impactor I think? Well ty & have a Great day. Ron. :-)
