howto: Root Google Nexus 10 using Ubuntu and ChainFire Auto Root Tool

by kiawin

Prior to rooting your Google Nexus 10, please ensure you have unlocked your boot loader. You may refer to my previous howto on unlocking boot loader.

Step 1, download the necessary tool – CF Auto Root Mantra.

Step 2, unzip and make executable

# sudo chmod +x

Step 3, power down your Nexus 10 and boot into boot loader then run the tool

# sudo ./

You should be able to see a red android robot appearing with some background processes running.

Congratulation! Your Google Nexus 10 is now rooted!
