The name of the apk is Universal Androot

To root, simply install the apk and press the root button :)

Could this be the holy-grail (from a user standpoint at least) of rooting? I'd love to hear comments on it's success (I'm already running 026 rooted, otherwise I'd try it).

As much as I appreciate all the work the X10 root devs have put into getting root on this phone and providing a solution for we lowly masse: I'd love a single-step solution. Seeing solutions for other phones like the one-touch root for the Galaxy S and jailbreakme.com do make me a bit jealous.

I am on rooted 026 too, otherwise will have a try.
Anyway, if it is true, that would be great for it is easier to do. Could any dev check and see if this way has any inspiration to your work.

From a quick glance at it I'd say it's the X10 mini exploit packaged and automated into an apk. Since the exploit appears to be a generic userland exploit it would explain how it works on so many devices.

The apk has a unroot button too so that you can reverse the rooting process before you return your device to se for whatever reasons :)
