Hudl 2


[link to this post]
 
Anyone know how to safely root this tablet please?

My version runs 4.4.2 and Android build number is 201550319.222108
Plenty of suggestions online but with older build numbers.

Why do you want to? If it is just to get rid of the custom Tesco soft key then one option is just to uninstall all the Tesco apps. That doesn't remove the key but does stop it doing anything.

(based on my experience with my older Hudl 1 which I assume will be the same for the 2).

Tnx for response. I would like to remove the boot-up animation and sound and uninstall the Tesco apps etc.

It is not possible to uninstall the Tesco apps on the Hudl 2 without root access. Some can be disabled but they are still using resouces.

Have you tried modaco.com? They are the only ones I know working on it but don't know if they have perfected it.

My boss told me, career is a verb.

Best place for info is

http://www.modaco.com/forum/779-tesco-hudl-2/

http://www.modaco.com/topic/373642-how-to-root-your-...

Not as easy to do as other Androids and could easily be bricked if you are not careful.

Yes, I have studied modaco avidly! It was there I found the reference to a particular build number and a caution that it will not work with my version!!

The device is too thin to act as doorstop so perhaps will wait for Hudl 3 before experimenting wink
