    OK I managed to root my Hi8 using Ishan’s procedure in the Vi10 forum:
    http://techtablets.com/forums/topic/chuwi-vi10-root-attempts/
    ADB version 1.3 & SuperSU v2.46 worked for me
    As a precaution, before using CWM to install the UPDATE-SuperSU-vX.Xx.zip file, I used CWM to do a backup image to an SD card.

    Confirmed, but not without trouble…

    First I was getting DEVICE STATUS & INFORMATION: UNKNOWN

    Then I tried with Kingo root – no success.

    And then I tried again with the “launcher.bat” from IntelAndroid-FBRL folder – SUCCESS!

    I guess I installed some driver missing from the ADB …

    I keep getting device unknown. It seems that there is some problems with the drivers. I’ve tried several cables and ports. I have succesfully rooted other devices previously. Any suggestions for other drivers?
    PS: Does anyone else get system error when accessing Security in settings? I got the tablet yesterday and it was working fine but today I cannot access the menu. Also some problems with some few apps.

    Paschalis, sorry cant help with the Root problem but I think I can help with accessing the Settings Menu:

    I had the same problem with the Settings Menu when I disabled the Lockscreen in Android – I could not get back into the Security Menu (I think this is a bug).  I found this work around to get back into the Security Menu:  Go to Settings – Under “Wireless & Networks” select “More…” – Select VPN. You will then be prompted to set a lock screen Password or PIN – Select OK. Next Choose whatever method you like “Pattern”, “PIN” or “Password” – make sure you remember what security Pattern/PIN or Password you enter . You can then exit the VPN menu and get back into the Security Menu using whatever Pattern/PIN/Password you set up. You can now select a different Security option (such as “Slide”) as long as it is NOT “NONE” otherwise you will have the same trouble getting back into the Security menu.

    Thanks @john…. That was what I had done too. I had disabled the lockscreen by accident…

    To root the Hi8, I used the Teclast X98 Toolbox from here: http://d-h.st/9RX

    Just run the 1_Toolbox.bat script from an elevated command prompt (I’ve used Windows 10 x64), install the necessary drivers and use option ‘E’ to root.
