SuperOneClick will Root any Android – almost

SuperOneClick for Windows

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.

    Good stuff – great to see more rooting apps becoming available that make it easy for the newbie. :)

    Will it work on an international Samsung Galaxy S (I9000)? That one is usually on the exclude-list when it comes to easy rooting…

    It’s the first smart phone with 4g to come out, well it seems like forever Why isn’t there a one click root for the Evo 4g?
