I can nearly remember the next half a sentence of that speech. I think I'll have this Shakespeare lark cracked by the time I'm 183.

Remember! You are responsible for backing up your phone! If you are unsure on any step, forget about rooting, since it could damage your phone.
Since you don't give more information about your phone, what android version (and which modifications) and what experience your already have, I cannot give you more detailed information.
You could ask google for details, or the common sites for custom ROMs; at example Cyanogenmod has a nice wiki on how to root android phones, and which custom ROM version is suitable for it.

The thread question is so confused. If you want to root your phone you need basic knowledge in reading instructions and computers. First thing to do is gather all your ADB Drivers and install it to your computer. Can you give a model of your phone. Example. "Samsung Galaxy S4", if we know the model of your phone we can help you to root it. There are many ways how to root android phones, by moborobo, binary updates and many more. By giving us the model of your phone we can help you find applicable steps on rooting your phone.

I want something very easy, one-click and get rooted!
I tried z4root, it did not work on my Acer A701 tablet.

Did you try to google if your device is compatible using z4root, if device not compatible try to search alternative ways how to root it. I think the easiest way and safest way on rooting is to connect it to computer. I already read z4root descriptions on this link [URL="http://www.oneclickroot.com/reviews/z4root/"]http://www.oneclickroot.com/reviews/z4root/[/URL, and i think your device is not compatible on this way.

You're on the wrong forum. LQ is geared towards people who know what they are doing, not just one click and go.

You seem to consistently refuse to do your own research or take the time to learn anything. This is a Linux forum, not an Android forum, and there's plenty of info out there about how to wreck.. erm... root your tablet if you go looking rather than just expecting people to serve up information to you, which you then dismiss as it's not easy enough. Sometimes you don't get to choose how you do something. You either do it as has been found to work, or you don't.

In point of fact, several prior posters are correct... what type phone what carrier do you use? Did you look on xda-developers.com in your phones forum for specifics? I don't claim to know everything but I do know who and where to ask when I don't know... info please!
