About
The WinDroid Toolkit is a Windows program built in Visual Studio using the C# programming language that simplifies the rooting process for many Android devices. The toolkit makes it easy to unlock your bootloader, flash a custom recovery and gain permanent root. It also includes other functions such as flashing kernels, pushing files and installing apps. If you find it helpful, give me a thanks and a donation if you can. If you find a bug or have a feature request, feel free to leave a reply. Thanks!

Info 2 FAQ, Troubleshooting and Guides!
Frequently Asked Questions
Which devices are supported in the toolkit?
You can check out which devices are supported here.

My device isn't listed!
You can submit a request here. Please include all the information you can about the device.

I submitted a request and my device hasn't been supported!
It's likely that there wasn't enough information or resources to support the device. Usually this means that no custom recoveries have been built for the device, or there is no official way to unlock the bootloader or safely gain root.

Can I post the toolkit in another forum/website?
Yes, as long as you link back to this post, use my download link, and message me to let me know. This helps me keep track of the number of downloads.

What operating systems can I use the toolkit with?
The toolkit supports Windows 7 and up.

Can you make a version for OSX or Linux?
I'd love to, but I don't have the coding ability to do it on my own. Send me a message if you'd like to work on that with me.

Can you add *feature specific to one device*?
Unfortunately, because the toolkit supports so many devices, I can only include features that work with every Android phone. I may include a tab in the toolkit with device-specific features in the future.

Can I check out the source code?
You sure can! It's up on GitHub here.

Troubleshooting
The toolkit crashes when I try to open it!
You probably have to update the .NET Framework on your computer to version 4.5. You can download it from here.
Another issue could be that you have the toolkit in the same place as old versions of the toolkit, which could cause some conflicts. Try putting the toolkit file in a new folder. You can also try deleting the Data folder so it will build a new one. You will have to choose your device from the settings menu again so it can redownload the correct recoveries.

The toolkit won't recognize my device!
There are a few thing that could be wrong. First, check that USB Debugging is enabled in Developer Settings. Next, double check that you installed the ADB Drivers correctly. You can redownload the installer here. Next, try using a different USB port. ADB sometimes has issues with USB 3.0 ports. If none of these solutions work, you may have to download the ADB Drivers for your specific device. You can check out this support page from Google to find your specific manufacturer and download their drivers.

I got an error when I tried to download TWRP/SuperSU/other file!
It's likely that you are not connected to the internet or the internet connection was lost during the download. Please close the toolkit, check your internet connection and try again. It's also possible that Amazon S3, the hosting site for the toolkit files, is down. You can check the status of that here.

Thanks! And yeah, I ran into a major last minute issue, so the release is probably gonna be postponed until later this week. At that point, I'll release the full toolkit and upload the project on GitHub.

You say it works for all m8 but then you also say it takes you to htcdev to unlock but Verizon can't use htcdev...so my question is does your program have a built in work around ?

I was under the assumption that the Verizon M8 was unlockable through HTC Dev. That means right now the toolkit is not able to unlock the Verizon One (M8). However, most other functions should work. I've updated the post in the Verizon One (M8) forums to let people know about this. Terribly sorry. If you know of any of good workarounds, let me know, and I will see about implementing them in the toolkit in the future.

Edit: After digging a bit, it looks like I'll be able to add the option of using Firewater to gain S-OFF and unlock the bootloader. This may get confusing though as most of the work will happen away from the toolkit, but I'll see what can be done by the next toolkit update.

If some how you can make you program able to change cid/mid then you can use htcdev as I did..but I believe you have to be s-off to change that.

It looks like my file host FileSplat decided to go down. Of course. Well, as soon as http://www.filesplat.com comes back online, the file downloads should work. In the meantime, I will be finding a new file host and angrily emailing the current one.
