Team,

This One-Click Root process will copy over the rooted-update.zip or unroot-update.zip file then reboot your phone. Follow the instructions in the CMD prompt that launches.​

Rooting adds the following to your 2.1 Eclair system and unrooting removes them:
/system/xbin/busybox (version 1.17.1)
/system/xbin/su
/system/app/Superuser.apk (version 2.3.1)
and links /system/bin/su to /system/xbin/su​

This has been tested on stock Android 2.1 Eclair and 2.2 Froyo JP2 not JP3.

  • It requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.

Rooting Instructions:

1. Make sure your phone is on USB Debug mode: (MENU > Settings > Applications > Developement > USB debugging = Checked )

5. After the phone has rebooted into recovery select "apply sdcard:update.zip" for I9000 and I9000M and choose "Reinstall Packages" for the US models using the volume keys and then press the home button for I9000 and I9000M and the power button on the right top side for US models to start the process.​

=====================================================================

=====================================================================

UnRooting Instructions:
To UnRoot follow the same instructions except click on the Unroot button. If you rooted using another process you can use this process to unroot as long as you didnt load a rom that created links to busybox. I would suggest to restore you phone back to stock ROM before even needing to unroot and if you are on stock unroot all you want otherwise what is the point of unrooting.

=====================================================================

Getting Started with Android After Rooting:

Superuser app issue: Found out the issue with Superuser App crash. If you install new superuser 2.3.1 the app will crash if you click on the Info Tab. The first Time you One-Click Root you will need to run something as superuser which will add an item the superuser will track then the Info Tab will not Force Close and will display details of the tracked app requesting root access. New Superuser bug but easily ignored.​

Does ist work with JP1 / JP2 /JP3? Anyone have tested?

Other Kits go back to JP2 to root and after back to JP3.

You are correct. I haven't tested this yet, but with the latest JP3 you can not get root by simply applying update.zip. You need to switch back to JP2 kernel and then copy over busybox and su. Then flash JP3 when done again. I do not think this tool does that... I can't see how all of that can be automated.

Is a SDK Install needed? Or a Terminal App? Can you post a step-by-step guide please?

Root for jp2, am I wrong?

I'd say wait for CM6. Then flash it from rom manager when its out should not be much longer. But I do know and love the adventurous.

How did you manage to automate the method when rooting JP3? I can not see how this can be automated.

Read the OP again, maybe even the whole thread (it's only two pages after all) - he says it's not tested with JP3 and that it's not automated for it either...

Oh, and while I'm being facetious, you may as well learn to use the "Edit" button rather than double post ;)

Sorry about the double post.

If you read through the thread you will find out that the OP replied to a guy who apparently wanted to get it working on JP3. Therefore I also asked the OP how he made it or if work for JP3. He has not replied to that, so I suspect he is only using the "flashing update.zip" method - which will not work with JP3. So, I did read the OP, you just misunderstood the problem :)

Fair play, I'm in a hospital with my missus - shouldn't really take out my frustrations in that way but these places always put me on edge :)
