      unrooting Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A1B doesn´t work easy
      I have tried the easy way using SRS Root like recommended. When it came to framaroot it said on the toughpad error #6. Then it tried several exploits and rebooted again. At the end SRS said that it can´t root. The toughpad still works exept the play store app. It opens but when I want to download an app play store closed. What have I made wrong. On my Runbo X5 just Framaroot and superu did the job.
