While I've tested AnJaRoot multiple times for the last weeks on emulators and real devices (4.3 and 2.3.7) I still consider it to be in beta phase. Please install it only if you are able to recover your device from possible bootloops.
AnJaRoot 1.1.0 is now 100% compatible to the Xposed Framework!
To get the latest version of AnJaRoot, go to the downloads tab or from the project homepage located at http://www.anjaroot.net/.
The prefered installation method is via sideloading/installing from sdcard the AnJaRoot Installer update.zip. The installer will automatch your device arch (armeabi, mips and x86 are supported right now). If the installer reports an error, you can find the installation logs on /cache. Please upload them to this thread or fill a bugreport so I can fix the problem.
AnJaRoot is also able to install itself via recovery. I've tested on the CWM recovery images, but it should work everywhere as no special tools are used except a shell in.
AnJaRoot is still new, you might need to uninstall it or recover from bootloops. To uninstall AnJaRoot use the provided uninstall update.zip, it will clean AnJaRoot from your device and should also recover you from bootloops.
Please also note that AnJaRoot is currently not that interesting for endusers as no app out there has support for it. I will support developers with getting their apps running with AnJaRoot. Once you have adopted your app I will also list them here.
Adding support to your app
In order to use AnJaRoot in your app you have to utilize the provided AnJaRoot Library. Everything which should be needed for you is documented via JavaDoc comments (Online Version). Fir a reference implementation refer to the source of AnJaRoot Tester.
The project homepage lists some resources on how to integrate your AnJaRoot into your app. Please don't use this thread for questions regarding the Library, use this thread instead. It also shows how to get started hacking.
AnJaRoot is currently not as easy as I want it to be integrateable. It's lacking a proper build system for ROMs and multiple changes have to be performed to change the package names (just for example). I will add support for it in the feature. Meanwhile you may just preinstall the lastest (signed by me) APK.
- Supports Android >=2.3 (Gingerbread, API level 9) on arm, x86 and mips
- Developers have a nice and robust library to utilize AnJaRoot to unlock the full potential of their ideas.
- Need to run native code as root? AnJaRoot can grant root also to subprocesses without the use of su!
- Simple to install: Install via app or directly flash/sideload the update.zip (which is useable on all supported systems) from http://www.anjaroot.net/
- Developers don't need to write hard to debug Shellscripts in order to issue commands as root, it was never easier to make use of superuser permissions.
- Simple management UX for users
- It's fully open source - AnJaRoot itself is GPLv3 licensed while the Library is published under the Apache License.
- Android 4.x multi user support
- Full replacement for the previous SuperUser tools
- Major UX overhaul (more options and a real design)
- Support for custom ROM integration
- Compatibility with the XPosed Framework
While I've developed it and made sure that your device doesn't get damaged, I can't guarantee that nothing bad will happen. It's your responsability about what you do to your device. Please be carefull!
