    Rom/instructions for Rooting a Nextbook Ares NXA8QC116

    Hi,

    New to the forum,

    Looking for ways to root this tablet.

    I can Provide any information necessary or if someone could point me in the right direction or help me root the tablet.

    Last android Tablet I owned was a Acer A500 took a Crap on me so picked this up and noticed its pretty new so no root out at least from what I can dig up.

    Model:NXA8QC116
    Running Android 5.0 Lollipop
    Kernel Version 3.10.20-x86_64_byt
    Build Number V1.0.6

    Rock solid tablet, I really like this tablet. Rooting is done via my tethered recovery.

      My HP touchpad died and needed a quick affordable tablet and got this. The only thing that bug me about this tablet its slow when switching between apps, I heard its because this tablet comes with forced encryption which slows its performance. Hoping to root it first then figure out how to disable forced encryption. Any instruction on how to roots a link perhaps.

        Yes, you want to disable encryption, that's the first thing I did, after rooting tablet.

          I don't own this model... but I believe it should be possible to root using either kingo root, vroot or iroot... you will probably need to setup adb access and use a PC to run one of those programs.

            They may work, don't know worth a shot anyway, I don't use windows.

            My Root methods are for Linux.

                You need to be a little more specific what you did. You damaged your data partition for one thing, that can be fixed.
                I haven't released a twrp recovery for this device yet, I do have one though.

                The password request is an encryption thing, once you root and format data and cache, turn off encryption you won't see that anymore.

                  I'll wait for you twrp recovery, because all I can do now is boot into twrp_3830_recovery.zip using trigger 4. Everttime I turn it on the nextbook logo will appear and stay there.

                    Not a problem, it's a two part process from where you are to get you up and going, I have to get home before I can upload what is needed.
                    I work out of town, might have up today, if not tomorrow. You will need to format data and cache then boot into fastboot and flash modified boot.img from there run twrp and root.
                    Once tablet boots it will be rooted with encryption turned off.

                      Thanks for the Reply's that is the first thing I want to do is remove the encryption not sure why they would roll out this build and make it forced encryption.

                        Can you download GPS test from playstore and see if it picks up any satellites?

                        Mine does not, so I want to see if GPS works on yours or if it doesn't work on any of these devices.

                            Managed to install boot.img and twrp permanently, now twrp reports internal storage 10650MB. Still stuck on the nextbook logo, fyi both linux and windows cant seem to detect the tablet its either (adb devices) device not found or unautherized so I cant use commands like adb reboot recovery to disable encryption.

                              Did the Device try to Re-Encrypt the tablet or is it just stuck? I had to Re authorize once I removed the Encryption.
