With the new updates coming to most Android phones, those of us that have rooted our handhelds may be disappointed afterward as the update is said to correct the root. Thankfully, there’s an app to help get us back in the dirt. The app is called SuperOneClick and you can get it by registering with XDA-Developers forums to download. It’s also free.
SuperOneClick is actually a windows program (linux in development, mac on a wishlist) that will root any Android device (minus the ones listed below) by connecting your device with a USB data cable to your PC.
- Sprint EVO 4G (HTC Supersonic)
- Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
- HTC Desire GSM
- HTC Desire CDMA (HTC BravoC)
- HTC Aria
- Droid Eris (HTC DesireC)
- HTC Wildfire (HTC Buzz)
All you need to make sure of before rooting is that you’ve unmounted your SD card, and enable USB debugging mode by going to Settings -> Applications -> Development then check USB Debugging.
