The T21 PC-on-a-stick may be versatile enough as it, but the folks at have found a way of making a good thing even better.

Yes, the T21 can be rooted if you follow the instructions below.

* First, Download Moborobo and install it.
* Windows 8 isn't all that pleased with unsigned drivers, so follow these instructions if running the OS.
* Download ROOT-T21 and uncompress it.
* Make sure USB Debugging is enabled in your mini PC (Settings –> Developer Options).
* Install Moborobo Daemon from Google Play.
* Start Moborobo on your PC.
* Execute ROOT_T21_GV-21_V01.bat inside ROOT-21 folder and follow the instructions.
* Moborobo needs to reconnect with T21 via Wi-Fi when the ROOT programs requires it.
* Once the procedure is complete, you can download and install SuperSU, as well as the latest version of Busybox.

As CNX-Software point out, the above-mentioned instructions may also work for a number of other Nufront NS115 Android devices, including tablets such as Acho C905t.

As always, make sure you have a readily available version of the latest firmware ready to go, just in case something goes wrong with the roo.
