One Click Root For Samsung Captivate

There is a one click root the Droid X. DroidMod just updated their Android app to root the Droid, Evo, and Droid X within the app. It was only a matter of time before someone decided to make a one click root method for the Samsung Galaxy S series. Sorry to everyone else though, this one is only for the Captivate.

TGA_Gunnman over at XDA Developers has created an almost identical application to the one click root for the Droid X. It is a simple application that that has only two buttons: One-Click Root, and One-Click Unroot (Unroot button isn’t shown above). Like the Droid X method, this only works on Windows (sorry Mac users). Also, this has only been tested to work with Android 2.1, so whenever that update shows up don’t do it unless you aren’t thinking of rooting at the time.

To use the application, go to the link located in the source below. Make sure you read all the instructions and understand the risks before rooting your device. It also has a pretty decent thread for any questions other users have had, so if you are having any trouble this would help. Once you’re ready, download the file and follow the instructions. You’ll be running some sort of froyo ROM in no time.
