NVIDIA devices are great for gaming. What’s one rooted app that gamer’s might enjoy? The Marvel War of Heroes guide is one idea for all of you Tegra Note 7 owners. The Marvel War of Heroes application is back and available from the Google Play Store after originally being taken down.
There are literally hundreds of other apps worth mentioning that you can run on your NVIDIA device. Another popular app for people who love gaming is the Ad Blocker and Data Toggle application. The games make their revenue through ads if they are available for free, so it’s never a great idea to run Ad Block on your device. However, if you have one game that is enhanced with it running, perhaps you could run it during that game.
Files You Need
- Download the root_tn7.img file from this page — you can find it under where it says the rooting for TN7 part.
- Download the Android zip file from this page.
- The following steps to root your NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 do void the warranty. You can only send it away for free repairs if you unroot the device. There is no unrooting option coming directly from the tool we are using today, so you’ll need to flash a stock ROM on the device to unroot it later.
- You must have a Windows computer to use this guide and its files.
