In order to run the app, your device (the device that is already rooted) must support USB hosting/USB OTG. Most newer devices have this.
This app uses adb and scripts (which you must provide) to root devices. If there is a root method for the device that uses adb, then it will work.
In the case of the Verizon Galaxy S3 (my primary device), the root method for a stock ROM is to use adb to push an exploit that will allow us to install Superuser and the su binary. I believe the Asus Transformer Prime uses a similar method.
If the only root method available involves using a program such as Odin/Heimdall or a manufacturer's phone flashing utility, or a zip must be flashed in recovery in order to gain root, it will definitely not work. In the case of the HTC Sensation, you must flash a recovery and boot into it, then flash a zip containing the su binary as well as a controller app such as Superuser in order to gain root. So the HTC Sensation could NOT be rooted with this.
In the future I plan on building a compatibility chart within the app to determine which phones can run this app and which phones can be rooted with it, as well as downloads for the rooting process. In the meantime, if there is a phone you are looking to root with this, let me know and if possible, I'll craft a zip to use with this.
