To root original BlueStacks vm you can use BlueStacks MultiTool. But I have more simpler solution. You can just download already rooted BlueStacks image. There are two version of rooted BlueStacks available for download: BlueStacks Rooted setup v0.8.12.3119 Mod - android 4.0.4 (recomended, more stable!!!) BlueStacks Rooted Superuser setup v0.9.3.4070 Mod - android 4.4.2 Remove your old BlueStacks and install rooted vm. Enjoy!
