You should be able to uninstall Universal Androot by accessing settings, Manage Apps, All, select Universla Androot, then "click" uninstall. But I would think that you can download the latest version from this site and install over your existing version. And to download you either need to know how to connect your phone to your PC and copyd the downloaded file from you PC to your SDCard root directory, then use something like Astro to install the app. These root apps are not available from the market. I was able to download directly to my phone using my Dolphin browser. I then used Astro file manager to navigate to my download folder and install the app.

Once you use this app, you can install any custom rom. I used this app and now run CM6 final with the mean and green theme. Great app and great idea!

After a long wait and hesitation, I installed univseral androot and it worked great on my Droid 1. However, I just received my FRG22D update and installed it. Now the universal androot doesn't work. When will we see an updated to Universal Androot that will included the Droid 2.2 FRG22D? Thanks in advance for the reply.

Explanations required for a newbie
Hello all,

I am not only new to the world of Android, but also to the Unix/Linux world, having spent most of my professional life working on the DOS/Windows platform. A lot of what I read here seems to make sense, but only if you have a basic - if not intermediate - knowledge of the Linux techno-babble... which I don't.
I'd like to gather enough information so I can publish a (hopefully) simple article for Windows users who want easy steps into rooting and using custom ROMs. Without having to learn what SU is, how to navigate through folders using archaic shell commands, and what not.

So... learning from my own experience so far...

I followed the steps to 1-click root my HTC Magic 32a. It apparently worked, with Universal Androot telling me my device is now rooted. I did it twice (after sorting through hundreds of posts to see if it could cause any damage, which it didn't), and I'm fairly confident I got that part done right.
However, being ever-doubtful, I wanted a second opinion as to whether my device is actually rooted. So I downloaded the latest Android SDK, added the Android 1.5 platform (which is what currrently runs on my Magic) and followed what seemed to be the most widely accepted recommendations. (Of course, my device has the proper USB drivers, I can see the SD card just fine from Windows Explorer, so I assume the *physical* connection is taken care of).

Going to the API's /tools subfolder, I type
adb devices
to which i get the following reply
HT95MNK03518 device
which seems to confirm my device is correctly identified.

Then, I try the following:
adb root
but all I get as a reply is:
adb cannot run as root in production builds
and the program hangs there. I have to kill it through the task manager to regain control of the DOS command prompt

My ultimate goal is to install Froyo on my Magic. Since I'm already stuck after this admittedly simple procedure, I'm kind of weary of attempting to go beyond and burn a new image onto the phone.

So can anyone tell me why ADB won't grant me root access even though the phone is supposedly rooted?

And as for the next steps, given my very basic knowledge of this environment, is there any Installing-ROMS-On-HTC-Magic-For-Dummies user's guide out there?

Thanks, and sorry for being long-winded.

OK, yes I knew that. Sorry, I'm a noob and only saw that Manage Applications page once.

Thanks.
