Hi,

Here an one-click application to install Superuser and su binary on phone. Look at the compatibility list here to see if this application can be useful for you.
Feedbacks on supported devices will be greatly appreciated in order to update the compatibility list. Post your feedback here
Superuser and su binary include in application work from android 2 to 4.

!! Important !!
Success with this application void warranty on your device.
If you need help, read the FAQ first before posting your question in the help thread

If you like my work, you can buy Framaroot donation app
Many many thanks to all donors

Installation
  1. Download it on your device (links are available at the end of this post)
  2. Install it with a file explorer or directly from your internet browser, if android warn you about security risk, say OK and check Unknown sources to allow install of applications outside of Play Store.

Usage

Open Framaroot and select one of the following action: Install SuperSU, Unroot or Execute script (for advanced users)

Possible case once application is launched
  • A popup saying "Your device seems not vulnerable to exploit included in Framaroot", in this case you can uninstall app
  • You seeing one or more exploit name, also click on one after you have selected an action and you will see one of the above messages

Possible case once exploit is selected
  • "Success ... Superuser and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device"
  • "Failed ... Exploit work but installation of Superuser and su binary have failed"
  • "Half-Success :-/ ... system partition is read-only, use local.prop trick. Reboot your device and use adb to see if it run as root", happen when the filesystem in use on system partition is a read only filesystem (ex: squashfs)
  • "Failed ... Try another exploit if available"
  • Framaroot crash or freeze, in this case relaunch Framaroot a second time and select the same action and exploit

Version 1.8.1: Another attempt to fix crashes.
Version 1.8.0: Add Faramir exploit, little brother of Boromir (potentially affect Mediatek based devices).
Version 1.7.1: Link to Framaroot donation added (it does nothing as this kind of application are forbidden on play store ... but it could do something someday)

FAQ
Is framaroot work on my device ?
If your device is in the compatibility list above, the short answer is : yes but it depends of your firmware version, latest firmware have less chance to be rooted.
If your device is not in the compatibility list and it embed one of the processor mentionned above, the answer is : try it and see.

Why framaroot doesn't root anymore after I update my device ?
Because framaroot exploit security holes present in several devices which has been patched with update you have done, so exploits can't root your device anymore. Framaroot's exploits have a very short life to keep your device "less exposed" to others malicious application. Keep in mind that framaroot is not a permanent rooting application.

I loose root after update, what I can do to root my device now ?
An advice : if you want to have a chance to keep root after update, don't update with Kies or ODIN for samsung devices or don't flash system partition, prefer OTA update and use OTA survival feature in Superuser or SuperSU.
And if you have no choice, you can use the traditional method : flash tools specific to your device

Will framaroot include more exploits ?
Yes, but don't ask when since I don't know myself, it depend of the vendors fix response.

Framaroot crash when I select Gandalf exploit ?
Often the first time you launch Framaroot by selecting Gandalf as exploit, it crash Framaroot. Don't worry, in this case you have to re-launch Framaroot and select Gandalf again, the second time it should work.

What means error# on result ?
All errors less or equal to 9 mean your device is not vulnerable.
If you get error#10, give a try with Framaroot 1.5.3.
All other errors need some investigation about your kernel image.

Framaroot say Success but SuperSU is not installed after reboot ?
Maybe there is some additional protection on your device or something goes wrong with SuperSU version embedded in Framaroot.
In this case, I recommend to use "Execute script" action and put your own shell script commands in /sdcard/custom (use at your own risk, all commands are executed with root privileges). Look at this post to know how to use custom script.

What can I do when the result is Half-success ?
You see this message when the /system partition on your device is a read-only filesystem (eg: SquashFS). To handle this case Framaroot try to use a trick by adding "ro.kernel.qemu=1" in file /data/local.prop. To test if this trick work you have to reboot your device and connect to it with adb shell. Once connected type the "id" command to see if you are root.
If you are not root, your last chance is to select "Execute script" action and put your own shell script commands in /sdcard/custom (use at your own risk, all commands are executed with root privileges). Look at this post to know how to use custom script.

Re: [ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click application to root some devices
Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch - SPH-D710
Android 4.1.2
Build GA10
Exynos4 processors

Results: Exploit failed
Possible Reason: Samsung has patched the kernel in this build.

I post these results to avoid future questions and comments. I suspect this will be successful on prior builds where the exploit is left unpatched.

EDIT: and BTW, FIRST!!!! LOL!

Bugging up my phone, so you don't have to!

Is there an app similar to how easy this app is to root if we want to unroot? Besides flashing an unrooted one click of course. I have insurance on my E4GT and just want to know if I can reverse this if I need to bring in phone for repair or replacement.

I think in the exploit repair/root app that you or chainfire made had the ability to remove the repair but not sure about unrooting, think that would be a great app feature to unroot.

Thanks

Superuser have a temp unroot feature. It certainly exists many apps which does unroot.
I think I will include an unroot possibility in Framaroot.
