DOES THIS WORK ON ANY ANDRIOD DEVICE?

looking to root a galaxy pad (tmo).. and there seems to be multiple methods.. probably some older versions.. so i was wondering is it essentially the same method to root any android device?

no... This is only for HTC Glacier... you don't need to unlock a bootloader on Samsung Galaxy Devices...

So, I tried unrooting by flashing a PD15IMG.zip through hboot, but I didn't realize it wouldn't turn S-ON again. So, I tried using Visionary to get temp root and follow the instructions in this guide to turn S-ON again and hboot still shows up at S-OFF. Help please!

Edit: never mind. didn't realize I had to copy the gfree file over to /data/local again after flashing the stock rom. got S-ON now.

Man, I am having a heck of a time getting un-rooted. I originally used the visionary + gfree method to gain root. I made the mistake? of thinking I could just flash the stock .img file to return everything proper again for warranty work. It didn't.

I'm on 2.2.1, have visionary running to gain temp root, tried everything in the original post to get s=on again and nothing's working. Without visionary I have no root access and s=off.

What am I missing here?

I rooted my phone over a year ago, I now want to root my dad's (same phone). It's still on T-Mo's stock Gingerbread. I know, poor guy.

Two questions:
1. Is it true that I now have to downgrade to Froyo before proceeding?
2. Is there a method that is better than the gfree, visionary method?
3. In this method, right off the bat it says, "Now unzip the file into your SDK tools directory" but it never says where this SDK tools directory is coming from. Clearly I'm missing something??

Thanks to ANYone who can help!

1. Yes
2. Not if you have the "bad eMMC" (which is a misnomer). If you have the "good eMMC" you can use root.sh, but gfree had supercid and sim options. IMHO gfree is superior.
3. Google "5 minute ADB setup"
