Root Your Dell Streak 7 and Install Honeycomb – How To

Posted by techhackz-admin Friday, July 29, 2011


The Dell Streak 7 is an Android tablet from Dell which comes with a smaller form factor than most recent tablets and runs Android Froyo (2.2). Running an OS not designed for tablets has its challenges and many of the Streak 7 owners would love to get a taste of Honeycomb on that device. An official upgrade will most likely never come but if you root your device you will be able to install a custom ROM like HoneyStreak which brings Honeycomb 3.2 to the Dell Streak 7.

Disclaimer: Please note that we will not be responsible if you end up bricking your device. Rooting or customizing your device can be risky, if you follow the instructions you should be fine!

Follow these instructions to root / jailbreak your Dell Streak 7 tablet:

  1. Connect your Dell Streak 7 to your computer
  2. On your tablet, go to Settings > Development and enable USB debugging
  3. Download SuperOneClick @ [APP]SuperOneClick v2.0 (MORE ROOTING!)
  4. Extract SuperOneClick on your computer
  5. Launch SuperOneClick and click on Root

All set!
