Rooting Scepter 8 Tablet
First, you will require a computer that is running Windows 8 or up. You also need a USB cable and an installation of compatible drivers for the fastboot and ADB on the computer.
The process begins with unlocking the bootloader. If you have already unlocked it, you can proceed to the final step of rooting your device.
Unlocking the Bootloader
Open your settings on the device and open ‘about tablet’. Here, you will see the build number. Tap on it several times until it notifies you that you are a developer. The developer options should then appear under settings > system > advanced.
Enable USB debugging, as well as OEM unlocking.
Next, you should boot your device to fastboot mode. The fastboot allows you to unlock the bootloader. On your Android OS, boot into the legacy fastboot using the code ‘adb reboot bootloader’. You should see a green logo.
Connect the tablet to the computer and execute the command ‘fastboot devices’. With a proper connection, execute ‘fastboot oem unlock’. You will get an “okay” notification. Now, execute ‘fastboot reboot’. At this point, a Scepter 8 tablet factory reset will be initiated and it will start the initial setup.
Rooting your Scepter 8 Tablet
Start by downloading the patched boot image. There are two variants. Gen 1 runs Android 11 and Gen 2 runs Android 12. Download the proper boot image. Save that file in your ADB directory on the computer. It should be named patched-boot.img.
Now, go to your settings and activate the developer options again.
Next, turn the tablet off and then hold the power +volume down keys until the logo appears. When it does, release the power and hold on to the volume down.
Next, connect the tablet to your PC and verify the connection. After a solid connection, execute the commands ‘fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img’ and ‘fastboot reboot’.
After you reboot the tablet, the device will be rooted. You should be able to see a Magisk app that proves that it is rooted.
Rooting a Scepter 8 tablet is as easy as that. You should be able to get the Magisk app on your device. If you do not, then you can easily choose to get the latest version from the play store or other sources. If you find yourself stuck, you can always restore the firmware on the device and restore it.
