Universal Androot is back with 1-click Rooting for most devices

Just like a stubborn weed, the damn thing grows back if you don’t kill the roots.  In the case of Android devices, roots never say die!  Universal Androot is back and ready to unlock your phone with their easy one-click solution.  The install is simple – grab the app in the market which provides you with a download link.  Open it and download the apk install file, run it, and root away!

It’s available to most phones out there, but it should be noted that it won’t work if you are on build number FRG22D of Froyo.  Hit the jump to see if your device is on the supported list and grab it via the QR code if it is!
