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! :D



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.

so this basically is the fastest way to root ur nexus one without unlocking bootloader ?

i've been reading the 2 way of rooting my phone without unlocking bootloader but found it quite a challenge to follow thru the guides... So if i use this app.. its the same thing ?(root without unlocking bootloader)

will i be able to flash cyanogen mod 6 rc2 after rooting with this ?

I'm interested in using this. Just a couple of questions though, firstly will this wipe the phone like the regular bootloader unlock N1 root method does? Second, once I've installed it and press root, will the phone just reboot and start up with root access or will it be rooted immediately without restarting? Thirdly once I'm rooted, does this behave exactly the same way as the bootloader unlock method, ie. flashing new recovery images and roms is handled exactly the same way?

If anyone's game enough it'd be good to see it in action on YouTube or something. I've always been pretty wary of rooting my phone for fear of screwing something up and bricking it.

No it doesn't wipe any data and yes it's just as easy as pressing the "Root" button. It's in effect immediately and my bootloader is still locked
I haven't tried flashing a custom recovery but other user had reported that it works

This is what I did

1. Download the app n install
2. Run the app n click root. App takes a few minutes n then pops a message that m rooted
3. I then open metamorph n let metamorph run the check to see if phone is rooted n results is yes.

Then I tried the unrooting method n it work.

Now can someone assist by guiding me how to get custom roms loaded or to change the status bar

    I'm a super user! Wow, that just made rooting so simple. Amazing.

    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!:)
    thanks for the quick reply bro! :cool:

    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.

    Can confirm that it works on ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco running Android 2.1/ERE27, though it loses root on reboot (even though the checkbox for "Root temporary (Unroot after reboot)" is left unchecked) so you have to run the app again. Not a big hassle, only takes 10 seconds.
