One of the main reasons people choose to go with Android is because of the customization of the OS. With features like custom app launchers and widgets, Android is widely regarded as the favorable OS for anyone looking to make their smartphone or tablet exactly the way they want to. Due to the open-source nature of Android, many users look to do what is known as “rooting”. “Rooting” is essentially getting to the bare system of the device and unlocking the potential of your smartphone or tablet by use of super-user permissions.

Depending on your phone, carrier and manufacturer, the process of rooting your phone could be either extremely easy or extremely tiresome. Luckily there are developers who’s mission is to create a seamless and user-friendly ways of rooting devices and bringing custom ROMs, or custom user interfaces to your device. 

XDA member alephzain recently posted an app called Frameroot that will easily root several devices with one click. It will install Superuser and SU binary on phones that have an Exynos 4 and some phones with OMAP processors. Obviously Exynos 4 devices are Samsung devices. As to the OMAP devices, only the ARCHOS 101 Gen 8 has been tested, but if you have a phone with an OMAP, you can certainly give it a shot.

All that is required is installing the APK (Android Package) on your device, running the app and there you have it, you’re rooted. The following devices are listed as compatible with Framaroot:

  • Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch – SPH-D710
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE GT-I9305
  • Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE GT-N7105
  • AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317
  • Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605
  • Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus GT-P6210
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000, GT-N8010, GT-N8013, GT-N8020
  • Archos 101 Gen8

If your device is listed, grab the APK here and/or hit the source link for more information. Welcome to the world of rooting!

      Your device is listed above as being compatible with the app but as with any changes that you make to your device, we strongly suggest backing up everything in case something goes wrong. While we don’t anticipate going anything wrong as long as you follow the directions listed in the source, we still STRONGLY suggest backing up. As a rule of thumb, always back up your device if you’re going to do something with it that will effect the device such as rooting.

      Just did mine, s2 gt-i9100 .. quick, and no issues at all. Finally I’m able to use Titanium backup again which is all I needed root for really :-)
      I didn’t bother with doing any backups before doing it.

    I rooted the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Framaroot.apk.
    Install the app. I choose the Legolas exploit, one click and seconds later it was rooted. Confirm it has been been rooted with Root Checker.apk or open an adb shell and type su. You should see android$: change to android#.

    Thanks to the developers
