- Make sure to backup all the data you have currently stored on your Xyboard 10.1, so that you won’t lose any important pictures, videos, music etc.
- Charge device’s battery up to at least 75% so that it won’t discharge in the middle rooting process.
- Disable and remove all system’s anti-malware/ anti-virus / firewall applications so that these won’t interfere while you’re applying the changes.
- The USB Debugging mode needs to be activated and in order to do that, you need to open Settings, then Applications where you select Development and then tick the option that says ‘USB debugging’.
