EDIT2: Since Google patched the loop hole in 2.2.1, this app is no longer working for newer builds. For this reason the developer has stopped supporting the app. If you still want to use this, feel free to do so. It would not harm anything.
However if it doesn't root your phone, there are numerous other methods of rooting out there. I suggest SuperOneClick or unrevoked.


EDIT: I see that a lot of people have no idea what rooting is, or don't even know how to install an apk. Seriously, rooting can potentially harm your phone if you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. For that reason, I strongly recommend you hold off using this app (or rooting in general) until you have done enough research and are more comfortable with Android.
If you insist on using this app, use it at your own risk. You have been warned!



This is a good post to guide you through how to flash a custom rom, after rooting your phone. And no, this app does not unlock your bootloader.

So I can root then unroot, and there will be no trace?
The warranty wont be voided?

Sorry for the questions. I'm just trying to work out why I should do the "root without unlocking bootloader" method instead of this.
Any difference? My guess is that this will unlock the bootloader...

Rooting with bootloader unlock will void your warranty.
