Wonderful! It worked.

Thanks very much.

 

Can you provide any guidance on how I use the backdoor to regain root after updating? It looks like I just need to run the script and select "Turn Backdoor On", but I'm not sure if  I need to do any of the other options.

 

This is only my second time rooting a device, thank for your patience :)

 

EDIT:

I tried updating once and it bricked my device with "Unrecoverable Bootloader Error 0x00000002".

It seems to me this is not a viable root option for those of us with newer K1's.
After another hour I am on rooted 14_14 thanks to Khanning's work here: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/13407-alpha-ideapad-k1-cwm-stock-rooted-rom-120109-build/

That is by design. The ROM is entirely stock except for that tidbit. Khanning changed the properties of the build so that it looks like a Xoom to the Android Market, so you can get all the apps that are exclusive to that device (there are many).

 

It's not a problem, it's an advantage--unless you want your tablet to be EXACTLY the same as before updating to 99_99.

In that case, there is currently no solution to get back to that state.

 

On a side note, I never saw anything about a 13_13 by TimmyDean...

Mostly games that work on most Honeycomb devices, but the developers didn't test them on all of them.

 

Modern Combat 3 is an excellent example. I have it on my K1 now thanks to the spoofed Xoom build properties.
MC3 runs just fine on the K1, but you can only get it if Market thinks you have a Xoom.
