Please do not hot link to my download. Link to the post and please don't use my work without asking.


Version 0.6.7 is up for download (no new root options)

Added general android tools:

Rebooting the device

Rebooting in to Recovery

Backing up your photos to your Mac

Fixing File permissions



Version 0.6.5 is available at the website.

- Updated the Recovery to TWRP 2.2.2.1 for the Kindle Fire


Version 0.6.4 changes

- Changed Kindle Fire recovery to TWRP.

- Updated Kindle Fire bootloader to FireFireFire 1.4a

- Added Kindle Fire recovery and bootloader updater for user who just want to update to the latest versions.


BreakDroid is a work in progress. My goal is to make a tool for Mac users that will root several different android phones and tablets as well as install the android sdk (adb).

It is very important to note that I only made the tools to automate these processes. All the developers of the root exploits and recoveries are listed below.

Current supported Devices-
Kindle Fire - Tested Version 6.2.2., 6.3 & 6.3.1
Galaxy Nexus - Seems to work. Tested with version 0.4.2+
Galaxy Note - Needs more testers - Will only work on some notes.
Droid Razr - Should also work on other Droid branded phones

All phones that can be rooted by GingerBreak
All phones that can be rooted by psneuter
All phones that can be rooted by zergRush - has been tested and works on many devices. vCheck the comments on the download page.

The download is fixed, thanks for the heads up.

I'm almost positive it can't ruin your device. I ran the Galaxy note app on a different phone about 10 times yesterday to see if it would work with no adverse effects. I can't guarantee anything but I'm pretty sure you'll be okay.

Thanks so much! I am going to install on my ATT note ASAP. Is there a noob step by step install guide?
Thanks!

Gonna test it on a GSM Galaxy Nexus :D

--- edit ---

Done, everything works fine except one thing.

Install Android SDK installs the Android SDK in /home/ folder OK
Galaxy Nexus Tools starts OK
X Unlock Galaxy Nexus gives these errors before halting:
/Volumes/BreakDroid/.files/galaxynexus/unlock.sh: line 16: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
/Volumes/BreakDroid/.files/galaxynexus/unlock.sh: line 24: syntax error: unexpected end of file
Done that manually to test the other options.

Install recovery downloads and installs 5.5.0.4 recovery just fine and reboots to it right away.
Install root files does what it says, easy and painless.

And... I think that's all, I think it's kinda anoying that everytime you perform one of the steps a new browser window opens with the Paypal donation site, you may want to do that only when quitting the script or something.

Just my 2 cents. I've followed you on Twitter (@migatohacemiau), send me a PM if you need more testing on the bootloader issue :)

    I went ahead and posted this in the AT&T Galaxy NOte forums, hopefully we'll have some more testers.
