If have you found it, you should include the source where you have found it.
Anyway, this app is called towelroot which exploits a linux kernel vulnerability. Theoretically it should work with all kernels which was compiled before June 3rd. However the tool doesn't work in all devices as certain memory address need to be known before applying the hack.
