Why would you want to root your tablet?
Rooting will allow you to get full access to your tablet. It gives you "admin" control for everything on your phone so nothing is unrestricted to the user. If you are coming from an Apple product it's like jailbreaking except 100x better!

1. Turn on USB debugging. Go into "Settings" > "Developer Options" > Check Mark "USB debugging". 
If you don't see developer options then go into the "More" tab then "About device" tap on build number about 10 times until it says "You are now a developer" and then go back and you should have USB debugging. 

2. Plug in your phone via microUSB and the other end to the USB port of your computer. 

3. Download the motochopper file using the link below and move it to your desktop!

Download motochopper

4. Open Terminal and type these commands:
Note: Make sure your Mac OSX/Linux computer has a password before typing in these commands!

cd Desktop
cd motochopper
chmod 755 *
sudo sh 

5. Once the script has started press enter to root your phone and allow USB debugging.

6. When the process has finished press enter again to reboot your phone. 

7. Once your phone has finished rebooting go into your app drawer you should have SuperUser app. You can now install and use root apps! 

To confirm your phone is rooted install an app like Titanium Backup and see if you get SuperUser request. 

Q: My terminal is stuck on "waiting for device", what should I do?
A: Unplug your phone and plug it back in, also make sure you allow USB debugging when it pops up on your phone's screen. 

Q: How can I install ClockworkMod Recovery? 
A: Install ROM Manager app from the Play Store to install ClockworkMod Recovery on your phone without a computer.
