COMMONS FAQ (IMPORTANT INFO, PLEASE READ!)
Q: Why this tool? Why should i use this tool instead of other available method to get root for BlueStacks?
A: Well, this tool is a time saver! With this tool, you no longer have to spend minutes to hours DIY rooting or downloading hundreds MB of the pre-rooted images.

Q: How did you come up with this tool?
A: Well, let's just say i got a thought in my head since years ago, wondering "Why would you need another linux to root BS while you already have one that can do the same job? The BlueStacks itself!".

Q: How long it takes to get rooted with this tool?
A: The actual rooting process should take less than 2 minutes to complete, however on slower machine it could takes longer..

Q: I can see Root.fs being resized, and why 320 MB?
A: 320 MB for /system is more than enough for normal users, prior to BS ICS version it give ~167 MB free space! and for ICS you get ~48 MB..

Q: 320 MB for /system is not enough for me, i need to install lots of system apps!
A: Once unlocked, you can use tool like TopoResize to resize Root.fs

Q: I feel that my BS is running slower after rooted using this tool, can i undo or return to stock BS give me?
A: Yes, If you got rooted using this tool, you can use the newly added feature 'Restore Backup' in MultiTool to restore back to stock image.
A: Alternatively, you can also rename the backup file 'Root.fs.BAK' back to 'Root.fs', you can find the backup in one of following folder:
  • %ProgramData%\BlueStacks\Android\ (Vista+)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\{USER}\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
Q: I would like to use SuperSU instead of the older Superuser, but the tool keep choosing the later one??!
A: The tool auto select the last 'UPDATE-Super*' zip found in the tool folder based on filename sorting.
A: Alternatively, once unlocked with this tool you can simply drag & drop to install your desire superuser app at any time.

Q: My SuperSU stops working properly after it got updated from Google Play Store??!!!
A: DO NOT update Superuser app directly, you are adviced to disable 'Auto Update Apps' feature under Google Play settings menu.
A: Some apps like SuperSU and Xposed cannot be updated using the usual way on BS, use my tool to update instead.

Q: I got an error 'BlueStacks is missing necessary files / features, what should i do?
A: First, make sure your BS is installed and running properly, second, check your security/antivirus software that might block access to file.

Q: I got an error 'Unable to communicate with BlueStacks', what should i do?
A: Certain firewall software such as Comodo, BitDefender will block local connection too, so you must add this tool to it's white-list.

Q: I got an error 'This SuperSU is not compatible with your system' -or- 'No su binary found'! what should i do?
A: Please try to use ChainsDD Superuser provided by this thread (Under downloads section).

Q: I got an error 'Could not complete rooting task #...', 'Timed out while...', what should i do?
A: 1) You are adviced to disconnect from internet temporary prior to running this tool. (Stops apps from (up|down)loading...)
A: 2) Try to remove or kill all unnecessary apps prior to running this tool. (Free some resources)

Q: The tool said rooting was successful, but non of the root apps is working! SuperSU shows 'No SU binary installed' error!
A: At the moment only ChainsDD Superuser has been found working with your APU. (UPDATE-Superuser-v3.2a.zip)

Q: After i ran 'Auto Debloater', my BS shows nothing except black screen, what should i do?
A: Please Install a custom launcher prior to debloating, otherwise you have no launcher when default one get disabled.
A: My personal recommendation is Holo Launcher HD, which seems to works well with BS.

Q: There is no gapps (Google Apps: PlayStore, G+, etc) in my BS after i got rooted with this tool?
A: Please follow THIS instructions to install gapps on your BS.


TODO IN COMING UPDATES
  • Add option to resize /system according to user input. CANCELLED
  • Add option to update hosts file directly using drag & drop. DONE!
  • Add 'ROM Customizer' function, something like binary-updater.
  • Maybe this too - Multi-Users mode, if there is enough free time. (But i think BS team is going to release this feature anytime soon.)

OUTPUT:

521QY5I.png



Feature: #13) Dirty Uninstaller
REQUIREMENTS
  • Administrator's right *might* be needed if your current user account is restricted.
  • WARNING: DO NOT use this if you have any Non-BS program that has the word 'Notification Center' in it's name.

PURPOSE:
  • ONLY needed if you have problem reinstalling BlueStacks, not for failed installation, eg: system not supported, compatible issues etc.
  • Fix reinstallation issues by removing ALL registry entries leftover by BlueStacks & Notification Center after uninstallation.
  • Eg: error 'Uh oh - BlueStacks cannot be installed on this PC because you already have this version installed.'
  • Why 'dirty'? Oh well, because this tool has nothing to do with uninstalling the actual program, or removing the files, indeed,
  • ...it stimulate uninstalled effect by tricking the setup program to *think* the program is not installed, even though it's installed.

HOW TO USE:

WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

1) Run your BlueStacks Built-In uninstaller from Control Panel.
  • NOTE: You will also need to uninstall 'Notification Center' which is also a BS program.
  • TIPS: You can also use your favorite helper program such as Revo Uninstaller, CCleaner, etc to uninstall.

2) Start BSMT and press '7' to start Dirty Uninstaller.
  • You will be given an option to continue or abort. To abort you can simply close the program window.
mBu8a6m.png

  • If you choose to continue, the cleaning will begin.
k36uMyd.png

  • NOTE: The tool will try to create a registry backup for entries that will be removed. (RegistryBackup.reg)
  • TIPS: The backup can be found under the same dir with BSMT, double click the registry file and answer YES to restore.
EujlzcW.png

3) Once completed, restart your computer and delete any left over files found in:
  • %TEMP%\bst*
  • %ProgramFiles%\BlueStacks\*
  • %ProgramFiles(x86)%\BlueStacks\*
  • %ProgramData%\BlueStacks\*
  • -OR- your customized installation/data path.

4) You may now retry to install BlueStacks, using offline installer is preferable & recommended.


Feature: #14) Full Factory Reset
REQUIREMENTS
  • Administrator's right *might* be needed if your current user account is restricted.

PURPOSE:
  • If you tried the 'Factory Reset' in your running BS you should have know that it didn't work as expected.
  • With this tool you can stimulate a factory reset effect similar to clearing your data/sdcard partitions.
qdvWZGW.png

HOW TO USE:

WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

1) Backup your apps & data, sync your contacts, messages, settings, etc.
  • NOTE: All apps that were installed after BS first start will be deleted, including it's shortcut on Windows.

2) Prepare needed apk files to be reinstalled, eg: custom launcher, GApps Installer, etc.
  • I recommend Holo Launcher HD, works well with both BS 0.7 & 0.8. (Need some customization to make it looks nice)
  • TIPS: Link to download gapps installer (Play Store, Play Services) can be found in first post.

3) Start BSMT and press 'F' to start Full Factory Reset.
  • You will be given an option to continue or abort. To abort you can simply close the program window.
i3yBGmp.png

  • Next, you will be given an option whether to backup existing data or not, please decide wisely!
  • INFO: If your data/sdcard are full the backup could takes 16GB!! Make sure you have enough space!
  • Once you have chosen the backup option the actual reset will begin.
  • Default unrooted state will be restored for BS v0.8.11 and above, for other versions, root will be kept.
  • TIPS: If you ran debloater before and deleted default BS launcher, you might get black screen on first boot,
  • ... to solve that, simply drop your custom launcher apk file to BSMT to install and get back your HOME screen.
Kvi6oCd.png

  • If you have chosen to create backup, the backup path will be given when the reset job done, please copy it down.
  • TIPS: You can copy & paste the path in your address bar to navigate to the backup dir.
  • Please delete any backup that is no longer needed to save some space.

4) Once completed, you may start your BlueStacks.
  • INFO: The first boot after reset will take much longer than usual to boot as files need to be copied.
  • If first boot failed, please restart your computer and try to start BS again.
  • If somehow the reset did not work and your BS could not be started, please restore from backup manually.

hi there,

very interested in this project since I'm running macro on a game everyday.

when i tried to use your tool to root, it says "ERROR: Could not comlete rooting task #1" in red words

i'm using 0.8.3.3026, win7 x64 already used adminiatrator right.

hopefully this can be resolved :)

much thanks!

The Land Below The Wind
New Update

Hey guys, sorry if you tried the first version but it didn't work for you.

There was a big mistake in the earlier release which i believe has caused ALL version to fail during the root process.
It wasn't my code didn't work but the bug was caused by the optimization engine & configuration i used, apologize for that.

With the 1.04 release the problem should have been fixed, also tested on Windows 7 x64, it should work just fine even without Administrator right.
But as i said the program is still under early beta stage so please feel free to report any bug, if you get error message when rooting, please let me know the last message before the error message so i can do follow up.

Also appreaciate if you can report your successful rooted version.

Thank you.

Hey guys, sorry if you tried the first version but it didn't work for you.

There was a big mistake in the earlier release which i believe has caused ALL version to fail during the root process.
It wasn't my code didn't work but the bug was caused by the optimization engine & configuration i used, apologize for that.

With the 1.04 release the problem should have been fixed, also tested on Windows 7 x64, it should work just fine even without Administrator right.
But as i said the program is still under early beta stage so please feel free to report any bug, if you get error message when rooting, please let me know the last message before the error message so i can do follow up.

Also appreaciate if you can report your successful rooted version.

Thank you.

Thanks for creating this little tool. Will test the new version now and report back. Your work is really appreciated :D

EDIT: Amazing! v1.04 rooted my BlueStacks v0.8.3 successfully on Windows 8.1 x64. Thanks a million!

Ok, this might sound like a strange request but... is there a way to fully unroot BlueStacks? The reason I ask is because in order to check my companies corporate email I have to use a third party app called AirWatch and even with a stock/clean BlueStacks install it detects it as being rooted as do other root checking apps like "Root Checker" by joeykrim for example. Anyways a way to do the opposite of what this currently does would be amazeballs for me.

Surprisingly joeykrim's Root Checker is one of the root checker that correctly detects BS as a 'rooted' device.
The fact is BS does come pre-rooted even since the GB versions of it, only that you have limited access due to read-only /system.

While doing a FULL unroot is very easy once you get fully rooted with unlocked /system, the problem still lies on the AirWatch app itself.
It's unknown how the 'compromised' detection works, there could be an emulator detection as well, who knows.

Perhaps i can try to include a full unroot function when i convert this tool to multi-functions utility.
But as a reminder, doing so might against their/your companies rules. (Either faking device rooted status or running in emulator)

I don't think there is any emulator detection since I doubt the AirWatch folks bothered to code that in for the 0.000001% of us trying to run this draconian crap within Windows so we can avoid having our personal devices/privacy totally invaded simply because we need to check our company email. If it was a company issued phone/tablet then sure do whatever but it's not so... yea that's getting off topic a bit. As for the 'compromised" issue it specifically states that it is compromised because of being rooted. Company policy isn't restricting what devices are used it just mandates that they be Android 3.0 or later and not rooted.

Anyways, thanks first for the root tool, which is very helpful, and second for taking the time to respond and consider my request.

This Info may be wrong. Please correct it, if its wrong

  • For older versions of BlueStacks, press 'Yes' immediately when prompted if you want to Quit.
T4NhIPW.png

I think here we should press 'No', instead of 'Yes'
Because I got Error #2 while rooting Bluestacks and pressing 'Yes' Button.

I got Bluestacks rooted when i denied to quit Bluestacks with 'No' Button both time.

Whatever Thanks for this amazing tool

New Update: BS Auto Rooter v1.04 revision 3

Updated to allow rooting/installation using the old ChainsDD Superuser in case SuperSU did not work or not compatible on your system.
If you already rooted with my tool simply drag & drop the UPDATE-Superuser4BS-v3.2.zip provided in OP to my tool.

I got Bluestacks rooted when i denied to quit Bluestacks with 'No' Button both time.

It was a bug instead, which happen after i done some modification to better handling the quiting process for newer versions.
As i said the new version has not been tested on older BS, anyway, thanks for reporting, fixed now. Users should click YES instead.

Btw why you have not updated to ICS? if i remember correctly the confirmation dialog only exists for versions prior to v0.7.1x, correct?
I might need to withdraw support for older version in the future...

Have you tried the recommendation on FAQ sections?

Error on task #4 indicates the system is running too slow and the task could not be completed within the given time period, hence 80s,
which i think is more than enough since an old core2duo 2.x ghz processor can complete task #4 in less than 20s.

Some users reported to me that they managed to fix the error by temporary stopping some Windows program such as anti-virus when rooting.
Please take note that any program that has massive read/write operations to disk could cause the rooting process #4 to fail, especially on old system.

Superuser Installer & Updater
  • UPDATE: Now you can use the original ChainsDD Superuser too!
  • Allow you to install or update your Superuser, as long as your Root.fs or /system is already unlocked.
  • By default this tool will update your SuperSU, meaning your authorized apps database will remains after the update.
  • For a clean database, use the 'Full Unroot' feature under SuperSU settings to remove it, then reinstall using this tool.
  • For ChainsDD, a clean (re)installation will always be used since some user data file need to updated as well.
  • HOW TO USE: Simply drag & drop the latest 'UPDATE-Super*.zip' to this tool & follow the instructions.

Full Unroot Helper
  • Could be useful if you need to run apps that check/block for rooted devices.
  • It can help you to remove some uncommon root related files in the system left by BS.
  • You also need to run 'Unroot' feature provided by your Superuser app, such as 'Full Unroot' in SuperSU to fully unroot.
  • Also try to remove root related app such as Root Explorer, etc, just in case the the app detect root app as well.
  • Root checker app should show all RED after that, if you are lucky maybe you can run the above mentioned app. :)
  • HOW TO USE: Simply drag & drop an empty text file 'unroot.txt' to this tool would do the job.

Great... Now how to get rid of the BS channels... When it's not connected to the internet, it keeps trying to poll to repopulate the BS-channels. This is a major issue with BS.

Great... Now how to get rid of the BS channels... When it's not connected to the internet, it keeps trying to poll to repopulate the BS-channels. This is a major issue with BS.

Thank you for trying my tool.

If you mean to disable BS-channels only when you are disconnected, i am sorry to tell you that's not possible without disabling the app itself because by design the app needs internet to function properly.

For your information i am currently working on a 'Stock Converter' feature, which by then you should be able to disable ALL apps that come with BS easily and have a closer stock ICS look, but you will also lost all BS functionality that comes with it such as their very own apps drawer.

In the meantime, you can disable related apps by using DISABLE function under [Settings] -> [Apps] -> [ALL] -> <TheApp> -> [DISABLE] whenever the app support it, a start-up manager app would also do the job.

P/S: Please DO NOT quote the whole post, i do not want any outdated information appears in other posts other then my own. Please edit it. TQ.

Has anyone been able to get the xposed framework installed. After I install xposed and reboot, bluestacks will hang at boot up. Anyone have any luck?

First of all, this is NOT a BS support thread, for BS related question please use their official support @ https://getsatisfaction.com/bstk/


Second, as a reminder for those who share this program for download on other file hosts (especially those with paid url redirector),
please remove it as i have clearly stated it's PROHIBITED (NOT Allowed) to share this program download on any site other than XDA.

If you disobey the rules you will get your name blacklisted in the program itself for future versions. You have been WARNED.
If you do not like the rules please use other rooting method, there are lots of ways and tutorials available around.

Thank you for cooperation.

    WARNING: Direct linking / sharing this rooter program on other forum / file host is NOT permitted.


    COMMONS FAQ (IMPORTANT INFO, PLEASE READ!)
    Q: Why this tool? Why should i use this tool instead of other available method to get root for BlueStacks?
    A: Well, this tool is a time saver! With this tool, you no longer have to spend minutes to hours DIY rooting or downloading hundreds MB of the pre-rooted images.

    Q: How did you come up with this tool?
    A: Well, let's just say i got a thought in my head since years ago, wondering "Why would you need another linux to root BS while you already have one that can do the same job? The BlueStacks itself!".

    Q: How long it takes to get rooted with this tool?
    A: The actual rooting process should take less than 2 minutes to complete, however on slower machine it could takes longer..

    Q: I can see Root.fs being resized, and why 320 MB?
    A: 320 MB for /system is more than enough for normal users, prior to BS ICS version it give ~167 MB free space! and for ICS you get ~48 MB..

    Q: 320 MB for /system is not enough for me, i need to install lots of system apps!
    A: Once unlocked, you can use tool like TopoResize to resize Root.fs

    Q: I feel that my BS is running slower after rooted using this tool, can i undo or return to stock BS give me?
    A: Yes, If you got rooted using this tool, you can use the newly added feature 'Restore Backup' in MultiTool to restore back to stock image.
    A: Alternatively, you can also rename the backup file 'Root.fs.BAK' back to 'Root.fs', you can find the backup in one of following folder:
    • %ProgramData%\BlueStacks\Android\ (Vista+)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\{USER}\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android\ (XP)
    Q: I would like to use SuperSU instead of the older Superuser, but the tool keep choosing the later one??!
    A: The tool auto select the last 'UPDATE-Super*' zip found in the tool folder based on filename sorting.
    A: Alternatively, once unlocked with this tool you can simply drag & drop to install your desire superuser app at any time.

    Q: My SuperSU stops working properly after it got updated from Google Play Store??!!!
    A: DO NOT update Superuser app directly, you are adviced to disable 'Auto Update Apps' feature under Google Play settings menu.
    A: Some apps like SuperSU and Xposed cannot be updated using the usual way on BS, use my tool to update instead.

    Q: I got an error 'BlueStacks is missing necessary files / features, what should i do?
    A: First, make sure your BS is installed and running properly, second, check your security/antivirus software that might block access to file.

    Q: I got an error 'Unable to communicate with BlueStacks', what should i do?
    A: Certain firewall software such as Comodo, BitDefender will block local connection too, so you must add this tool to it's white-list.

    Q: I got an error 'This SuperSU is not compatible with your system' -or- 'No su binary found'! what should i do?
    A: Please try to use ChainsDD Superuser provided by this thread (Under downloads section).

    Q: I got an error 'Could not complete rooting task #...', 'Timed out while...', what should i do?
    A: 1) You are adviced to disconnect from internet temporary prior to running this tool. (Stops apps from (up|down)loading...)
    A: 2) Try to remove or kill all unnecessary apps prior to running this tool. (Free some resources)

    Q: The tool said rooting was successful, but non of the root apps is working! SuperSU shows 'No SU binary installed' error!
    A: At the moment only ChainsDD Superuser has been found working with your APU. (UPDATE-Superuser-v3.2a.zip)

    Q: After i ran 'Auto Debloater', my BS shows nothing except black screen, what should i do?
    A: Please Install a custom launcher prior to debloating, otherwise you have no launcher when default one get disabled.
    A: My personal recommendation is Holo Launcher HD, which seems to works well with BS.

    Q: There is no gapps (Google Apps: PlayStore, G+, etc) in my BS after i got rooted with this tool?
    A: Please follow THIS instructions to install gapps on your BS.


    TODO IN COMING UPDATES
    • Add option to resize /system according to user input. CANCELLED
    • Add option to update hosts file directly using drag & drop. DONE!
    • Add 'ROM Customizer' function, something like binary-updater.
    • Maybe this too - Multi-Users mode, if there is enough free time. (But i think BS team is going to release this feature anytime soon.)

    Main Features

    Feature: #1) BlueStacks Auto Rooter / Unlocker
    REQUIREMENTS
    • Untouched system image 'Root.fs' (NOT using any other pre-rooted files.)
    • Must have over 360 MB free space left on your /data partition.

    WHAT IT DOES

    • Fix reinstallation issues by removing ALL registry entries leftover by BlueStacks & Notification Center after uninstallation.
    • Eg: error 'Uh oh - BlueStacks cannot be installed on this PC because you already have this version installed.'
    • Why 'dirty'? Oh well, because this tool has nothing to do with uninstalling the actual program, or removing the files, indeed,
    • ...it stimulate uninstalled effect by tricking the setup program to *think* the program is not installed, even though it's installed.

    HOW TO USE:

    WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

    1) Run your BlueStacks Built-In uninstaller from Control Panel.
    • NOTE: You will also need to uninstall 'Notification Center' which is also a BS program.
    • TIPS: You can also use your favorite helper program such as Revo Uninstaller, CCleaner, etc to uninstall.

    2) Start BSMT and press '7' to start Dirty Uninstaller.
    • You will be given an option to continue or abort. To abort you can simply close the program window.

    qdvWZGW.png

    HOW TO USE:

    WARNING: Experimental feature. For expert user only, use with caution and try at your own risk.

    1) Backup your apps & data, sync your contacts, messages, settings, etc.
    • NOTE: All apps that were installed after BS first start will be deleted, including it's shortcut on Windows.

    2) Prepare needed apk files to be reinstalled, eg: custom launcher, GApps Installer, etc.
    • I recommend Holo Launcher HD, works well with both BS 0.7 & 0.8. (Need some customization to make it looks nice)

    • INFO: If your data/sdcard are full the backup could takes 16GB!! Make sure you have enough space!
    • Once you have chosen the backup option the actual reset will begin.
    • Default unrooted state will be restored for BS v0.8.11 and above, for other versions, root will be kept.
    • TIPS: If you ran debloater before and deleted default BS launcher, you might get black screen on first boot,
    • ... to solve that, simply drop your custom launcher apk file to BSMT to install and get back your HOME screen.
    Kvi6oCd.png

    • If you have chosen to create backup, the backup path will be given when the reset job done, please copy it down.
    • TIPS: You can copy & paste the path in your address bar to navigate to the backup dir.
    • Please delete any backup that is no longer needed to save some space.

    4) Once completed, you may start your BlueStacks.
    • INFO: The first boot after reset will take much longer than usual to boot as files need to be copied.
    • If first boot failed, please restart your computer and try to start BS again.
    • If somehow the reset did not work and your BS could not be started, please restore from backup manually.
