Hi, If your Tablet isn’t supported, change modstrings by opening the towelroot application and tapping three times on the “Welcome to Towelroot v3” sign. This will open a white box under “Make it rain button” where you have to type the following code
Code 1. 1337 0 1 0 4 0 (Standard code – works on most devices)
Code 2: 1337 0 1 7380 4 0 (For Samsung Galaxy Device)
Code 3: 1337 0 1 0 4 1 (Universal code – gives temporary Root Access)
Same problem. None of the modstrings work!
