Hi XDA Community!

"This is my first time to post a thread. Please consider me as a junior and don't be ignorant :p
This is all about rooting all almost devices without using a PC.
I called it...."

DROID Universal Root
or DROID U-ROOT

ROOT can access all features deep down into system, just like you are a Administrator in Windows Computer!
ROOT can give you more benefits like, optimize performance, save more battery life, completely remove unwanted user and system apps, and more!

That's why i created this small package
(ChainsDD has also his package but it's old :
http://androidsu.com/superuser/)

REQUIREMENTS:

+ Android 2.3 Gingerbread to 4.2 Jelly Bean (Not yet sure for KitKat)
+ Android Devices with ARM Architecture, not yet available for x86, MIPS, etc.
+ An Android Device with a workable Recovery Mode Console.
(Custom and NON-OEM Recoveries are Recommended!
More info...)

* With a SD Card at least 20MB remaining space, a system partition at least
12MB and a "/data" or internal memory with at least 10MB space remaining.

* Unlocked Bootloader (Bootloaders issued mostly in HTC, Motorola, etc. if Available)

NOTE : For users who are using DROID_U-ROOT_******--SIGNED.zip,
If installation fails, try these two packages.

DROID_U-ROOT_******_GB--SIGNED.zip contains Superuser files by @ChainsDD
while,
DROID_U-ROOT_******_ICS+--SIGNED.zip contains SuperSU files by @Chainfire
(ICS+ Means its for Android 4.0 to 4.2)

COMING SOON:
* v 1.0.21 *
BIGGEST UPDATE EVER!
-- Fixed TYPO code in updater-script for GB Edition.
-- updater-script would be obsolete, we will now using the
binary source from @ClockWorkMod (coding)
to ensure rooting process!
-- More permissions fixes using scripts to ensure it's integrity!
-- Other architectures (x86, MIPS, etc.) would be available!

Version Changelog:
* v 1.0.1 *
-- Properly Signed all packages using APK-Multi-Tool (Hope it's more compatible!)
-- Dummy file contained in init.d directory in order to sign the whole package! (It will call "su" binary at boot)

* v 1.0.0 *
-- Initial Release


ALL OF INFORMATION MAY YOU WANT TO KNOW IS ALREADY

    1. Information about ROOT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    More info at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_Rooting
    
    Android rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets, and other
    devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control
    (known as "root access") within Android's sub-system.
    Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and
    hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or
    replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require
    administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise
    inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the
    complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a
    more recent release of its current operating system.
    As Android derives from the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar
    access administrative permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating
    system such as FreeBSD or OS X.
    
    Root access is sometimes compared to jailbreaking devices running the
    Apple iOS operating system. However, these are different concepts.
    Jailbreaking describes the bypass of several types of Apple prohibitions
    for the end user: modifying the operating system (enforced by a "locked bootloader"),
    installing non-officially approved apps via sideloading,
    and granting the user elevated administration-level privileges.
    Only a minority of Android devices lock their bootloaders?nd many vendors such
    as HTC, Sony, Asus and Google explicitly provide the ability to unlock devices,
    and even replace the operating system entirely.
    Similarly, the ability to sideload apps is typically permissible on Android devices
    without root permissions. Thus, it is primarily the third aspect of iOS jailbreaking
    relating to giving users superuser administrative privileges that most directly
    correlates to Android rooting.
    
    
    2. Advantages and Disadvantages of ROOT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    An Android Device with a ROOT Access can give more functionality, such as by
    Optimizing Performance both Software (Kernel, ROM) and Hardware (CPU, RAM, SoC)
    Longing Battery Life, Uninstalling unwanted system apps, Forcibly transfer the app
    to the SD Card (Even it's not supported) etc. All of these functions can separately
    install using apps with a special SU (Root binary) system call.
    
    Many users says that ROOT Access was a great function for a Android device.
    But ROOT can cause vulnerabilities on your device and it's potentially dangerous
    just because it can access deep down into a Android Sub-System such as modifying
    system files, depending of which particular files or binaries would modify it by
    users.
    
    
    3. What are the requirements to make it work?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In order to make it workable smoothly, you/users must comply these requirements;
    * Android 2.3 Gingerbread to 4.2 Jelly Bean (Not yet sure for KitKat)
    * An Android Device with a workable Recovery Mode Console.
      Custom and NON-OEM Recoveries are Recommended!
     (More info: http://www.androidcentral.com/what-recovery-android-z)
    * With a SD Card at least 20MB remaining space, a system partition at least
      12MB and a "/data" or internal memory with at least 10MB space remaining.
    
    This package will install a Superuser/SuperSU app in system/app/ directory, then
    the su binary will install in a system/xbin/ directory. While the other functions
    will be informed how at XDA forum.
    
    
    4. How to install DROID UNIVERSAL ROOT?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BEFORE INSTALLATION...
    Reboot your device to recovery mode, booting IT can be in different ways.
    
    Case #1:    Turning off the device and wait in a seconds to shut, and pressing
            BOTH Power, Volume Up and Home Hard Buttons. This case are applicable
            in many Samsung or other devices which it has a center button (HOME).
                
    Case #2:    Turning off the device and wait in a seconds to shut, and pressing
            BOTH Power, and Volume Up Buttons. This case are mostly applicable
            to the devices without a center button. (Soft Touch)
                
    In some recoveries, some of them doesn't have a "select zip from sdcard" option.
    So make sure you must rename the package to update.zip
    
    INSTALLATION...
    After that, Use the volume button to move, and home/menu/power button to select.
    Some devices can select by tapping. Choose "select zip from sdcard" or
    "select update.zip from sdcard". It will run if you rename this package
    to update.zip!
    
    AFTER INSTALLATION...
    Reboot your device, wait for a moment to boot, and open your launcher menu.
    When the Superuser/SuperSU app appeared, it means that you are ROOTED.
    
    
    5. Compatibility Notice
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    NOT ALL ANDROID DEVICES are 100% workable in this package.
    Many devices may not be easy to install cause of security features
    such as OEM Recoveries build and provided by own manufacturers,
    and locked bootloaders which it has a ability to restrict sideloading files
    except their Official OTA Updates. It should be unlocked right away before
    this procedure.
    
    For users experienced Error 0 by installing this package, simply replace the
    update-binary file from any of your stable update-binary.
    
    Open the package using WinRAR then...
    
    * META-INF/
        * com/
            * google/
                * android/
                    ! update-binary   <<< Should be like this
                    * updater-script
        * CERT.RSA
        * CERT.SF
        * MANIFEST.MF
    
    To avoid device crashes, please make a backup through ADB (Android 4.0+ only) or
    Custom Recovery (e.g. CWM). The developer is not responsible for Device Crashes,
    Bootloops and other relative damages on your device.

Idk what this is. :confused: OP says Stable and beta. I downloaded your signed beta rc 1.0 and it is nothing but supersu apk, su binaries, and busy box. The updater script seemed weird as supersu does all of the work in the updater-binary. Anyway, I have no idea what this is supposed to be. You might want to ask @Chainfire before repackaging his stuff though. It doesn't appear in your OP that you give him credit.
