I’m going to introduce a quick way to root in Android, which will help get access to some powerful apks. The following progress is based on Linux.


1.Connect the open-source board to a PC and make sure adb is functioning.

2.Run the quick_root.tar in the attached files. Run the command: tar xf quick_root.tar.

3.Run the following commands.

adb remount
adb push root.tar system/usr/root.tar
adb push quick_root.sh system/usr/
adb shell


And then run the following commands.
root@rk3288:/ # cd system/usr/
root@rk3288:/system/usr # chmod 777 quick_root.sh
root@rk3288:/system/usr # ./quick_root.sh

After that, the configuration files will be installed automatically and the device will be rebooted.The device will be rooted after reboot.



4. Open the RE explorer and test if the root is successful.

1) Open the RE explorer and go to system/app.

2) Click the Mount R/W button on the upper left.You will see a pop-up window for superuser permission.




3) Delete apks under system/app via RE explorer. If you can delete them, it means that the device has been rooted.

Rooting with this method has an extra gift, which is the program "Root Explorer" one of my favorites for digging deep and editing the file systems.  Another program since you are now rooted is "SetCPU", if nothing more than to be able to monitor your CPU Temperature, a surprise to me that Firefly would engineer this in.  KUDO's ENGINEERS.

Found this, this a.m. at CrewRKTablets.  Works, used it to check compatibility with Firefly.  Really like a new use for the rktools, but that is a choice.  This program is completely  GUI friendly.  Root your Firefly and also add TWRP from rktools 2.3.  Use the TWRP version, the CWM from reading may not work for sounds like touch.  enjoy http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?p=4776 Thanks to Netlars

EDIT: Got my p's and q's mixed use TWRP "Sorry"

Unfortunately, doesn't work anymore.
SuperSu mentioned "there is no SU binary installed, and SuperSu can't install it".
