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.​

This has been tested on stock Android 2.1 Eclair only. 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.

For the following models:
GT-I9000
Captivate SHG-I897
Vibrant SGH-959
GT-I9000M
Epic SPH-D700 (Untested but should work like other phones. Post with your results. This is harmless it will either work or it wont. It copies over 3 files to your existing build.)​

Rooting adds the following to your 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​

More will follow as they are released. PM me to add your Galaxy S Model.

Warning: I am not responsible for bricked phones, rooting can void your warranty....

  • 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 )

3. Click one of the buttons depending on what you want to do.

4. 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.​

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

Done! You are rooted.

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

Un-Rooting Instructions:
To Un-Root follow the same instructions except click on the Un-root button. If you rooted using another process you can use this process to un-root 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 un-root all you want otherwise what is the point of un-rooting.

One question since this seems to be a major topic as well, any way you could have it load a generic settings.db file or one click exit to the existing one for non-market apps?

That seems to be giving some people a bit of a headache.

I will see what I can do. I don't have a Captivate. I have a Vibrant. But I have sent a request to kirbo20 to send me his file. If I get it I will add it to the app.

This is awesome, I have been waiting for this!
I am having a problem though, I have gotten to the "press the One Root Button" step. The green shell screen says it can't load the update onto my sd card, so when I re-install packages, it can't find the zip file. It does reboot the phone though and it is set on debug, is there a step I missed? I do have another 8g speed6 sd card I put in the empty slot, could that be messing it up?

Well sounds like your drivers maybe not set up right. go to start then run and open up prompt by typing cmd and see if "adb devices" runs and sees your device.

Awesome work. I'll probably wait for the updated version with the "Unroot" option, but very cool nonetheless!

Here is my settings.db file. Some have speculated that it varies some from phone to phone so may need some testing.

It has been edited to enable non-market apps.

    ^ If u just want Root.
    When I was on the official Froyo 2.2 i897UCKB1 (I see ur on KB2), the only way I was able to get Root was through this...View attachment 711191

    Download/ extract the file/ open file/ right click and run as adminstrator the "SuperOneClick"/ go to phone Settings/ Applications/ Usb settings/ and select Mass storage/ back out of that and then select Development/ and put a check in the box of USB debugging/ Home/and then connect ur phone to the computer and then tap ROOT. The "psneuter" Exploit is the one that worked for me.

    Hope this helps ya...

    thank you, this really helped! it should be in the first post!

    Updated the app to include unroot. Created a new update.zip file that will remove root. Also fixed the CMD shell launching minimized.

    one click root or any other root seems to not be working with att captivate and 2.2 leaked froyo. just gets message E:signature verification failed installation aborted.

    any ideas? would be nice to be able to use the root functions and apps

    i had the same problem and flashed Odin back to the original ROM then the one click root worked.
