Rooting Lava Xtron android tablet

WARNING : It worked for me but still, do at your our risk. 

Lava Xtron is the only cheapest android tablet which has performance equalling nexus 7.  See the flipkart link below for more details

But the problem is that you dont get usb drivers for connecting it to your windows pc. More worse for developers, since it is impossible to perform adb tasks, app debugging ,etc.

Just follow these steps to root your xtron tablet.

A . Getting USB drivers

1.First, we need usb drivers so that our device gets detected.Install Moborobo which is an software for managing your device sms,videos,pics,etc

2.After installing it, connect your tablet and wait for it check your device for downloading necessary drivers.

3.Once connected vid USB, you should be able to see your device files, sd-card size in the moborobo desktop application.

NOTE : In moborobo software, Device model of the tablet will not be shown when detected. Its just a bug.Ignore it.

B . Rooting the device

1. Download the software  ZhuoDaShi-2.2.0-setup.exe . Sometimes your antivirus might block this. Deal with them.

2.Since it is a japanese/chinese software, you may see some crazy instrution text while installing. Follow the screenshots below…
