3. This procedure gives you root access on your phone, in order to load a custom ROM, please do this procedure then continue to the next procedure for your specific device at the end of this procedure.

4. This currently only works on Windows computers. If you do not have a Windows computer, please find a friend with a Windows computer to do this (I guarantee you have at least one).

5. You must have Microsoft .NET framework 2.0 or higher. If not, download it from here (32 bit) or here (64 bit).

THANKS AndroidPolice for the Tip!
THANKS CLShortFuse for the super easy program!

IF YOU ENJOYED USING THIS PROGRAM PLEASE THANK/DONATE TO CLSHORTFUSE HERE.

II. Root the Phone

1. Download and install the latest version of the rooting program, unzip it, and install it on your computer:

One Click Rooting Program

2. On your phone, go to Settings > Applications > Development > Make sure USB Debugging is checked ON.

3. Plug your phone in via USB cable to the computer.

4. Right click the program and click Run As Administrator (or just double click it if using Windows XP).

5. Click the Root button and wait for it to finish.

6. Once done, you should see superuser permissions in your phone’s apps. If so, you are all set!

III. (Optional) Enable WiFi Tethering

1. Once you have root access, you can install WiFi tethering for your phone. Head to the WiFi tethering site and download the appropriate version for your phone (if your phone is not listed, they do not currently support your model):

WiFi Tethering .apk

2. Then save it to your phone’s SD Card.

3. Download Linda File Manager (free) from the Market on your phone and open it.

4. Navigate to where the .apk file is saved on your phone’s memory card and click it to install it.

5. When you open the WiFi tethering app for the first time, click Allow when Superuser pops up asking for permission. All set!

IV. (Optional) Load a Custom Recovery Image/ROM

1. To load a custom ROM you need a custom recovery image. Please click the procedure below to load a custom recovery image onto your phone:

How To Flash a Custom ROM (ROM Manager Method)

Reported Issues:

Issue: It gets stuck on waiting for device…

Solutions: Try these solutions, starting with the first then retry, then the second and retry, and so on until it works.

1. Check to make sure USB debugging is checked on in Settings > Applications > Development.

2. Close the rooting program. Turn off your phone (keeping it still plugged in). Open the rooting program and click root. Then turn on your phone and see if it continues.

3. Close the program and unplug the phone. Download and install PDANet and follow it’s on screen directions to get it to install the drivers manually for your phone. Once it is done installing, plug the phone in and reopen the rooting program.

4. If that still doesn’t work, then go to our How To Setup ADB Procedure, finish it and return here to start over.

IF YOU HAVE TRIED THIS PROCEDURE (INCLUDING ALL THE REPORTED ISSUE STEPS) AND IT STILL DOES NOT WORK, JUST HEAD TO OUR ANDROID HOW TO’S SECTION AND CHOOSE YOUR PHONE TO BE PRESENTED WITH OTHER ROOTING METHODS THAT WORK ON YOUR SPECIFIC PHONE (THIS IS JUST THE EASIEST SO WORTH A TRY FIRST)!

      1. I already have a rooted htc desire phone with an early version of unrevoked but the problem is its still S-ON. Can i reroot with this method and simply overite my already rooted phone to gain the latest recovery and S-OFF?

    1. I have a mytouch old, and i did everything but at the end it said not rooted failed, but on the device i have superuser. what happened?

  1. My Nexus one keeps getting stuck at Getting mount path:

    Starting ADB Server…

    Can someone help me please? I have a Nexus one running 2.2.1

      1. I have the Droid 1, and I am also stuck at “getting mount path” this was after installing PDA net. Don’t know.. just wont finish?

    1. Worked for my D1 running FRG22D. Had to start phone in recovery mode (power x). plugged the phone in and ran the SuperOneClick root process on my pc. once it starts to try and find the device, it will get stuck. That is when I powered the phone back on while plugged in. The root program started back up on its own and, wallah, a freshly rooted phone.

  2. Im getting closer and closer to rooting my phone im so scared to root it and then not be able to get the image of my system back on my phone. Im not idiot proof but this seems easy even for his idiot. Thank u so much for the info. I realllly APPreciate that. Get it ?
    app- preciate lol.

    1. Ha no problem. Let us know if it works for you or not 🙂 Can’t really harm your phone, worst that happens is it says failed and just doesn’t root your phone. Good luck!

  3. hey, currently in the process of rooting my device for the first time. followed the method and the program currently says ROOTED with the line below saying getting mount path, and has been like that for the past 5 mins any ideas on what to do next.

    Nexus one
    FRG83
    Android 2.2.1

  4. @Ben and @Anthony Heron

    Try this, download Terminal Emulator (free) from the Market and open it. Does it have a # symbol when you open it? If not, type su and hit enter and then does it have the # symbol?

    Let me know, seems the latest Version of the Nexus One caused the same issue, I think @ShortFuse (the creator of the app) is working on fixing this… aren’t you? lol

  5. huzzah! it finally worked. i powered off the device after getting the Getting mount path. i then closed the superoneclick program and opened it back up and clicked root. after it reads waiting for the device i then powered it on and now it reads, and a message popped and and said your device is now rooted

    1. Anthony, your the man! Thanks so much, I can’t believe that worked…. However, how can I move these big files to the sd card. That’s the only reason why I wanted to root the damn thing?

      1. i wouldn’t have a clue. it was only a stroke of luck that i tried turning the device on after the program had started. i’m not sure if it is enabled in any of the custom rom’s

  6. i think i may have bricked the handset. i went onto ROMmanger in order to get cyanogen and selected back up current rom and currently then screen is black and the phone is completely unresponsive. HELP NEEDED

    1. Don’t panic (you shouldn’t use ROM manager to do anything but flash the recovery image for future reference, it’s been known to cause issues).

      Take out the battery wait 10 seconds and put it back in. Hold power and see if the phone turns on.

    I have a Motorola Droid running FRG22D (2.2 obviously)
    Any ideas?

  9. ANYONE GETTING WAITING FOR DEVICE, read the reported issues under the procedure and do the following, one at a time and retry between each time.

    1. Check to make sure USB debugging is checked on in Settings > Applications > Development.

    2. Close the rooting program. Turn off your phone (keeping it still plugged in). Open the rooting program and click root. Then turn on your phone and see if it continues.

    3. Close the program and unplug the phone. Download and install PDANet and follow it’s on screen directions to get it to install the drivers manually for your phone. Once it is done installing, plug the phone in and reopen the rooting program.

    4. If that still doesn’t work, then go to our How To Setup ADB Procedure, finish it and return here to start over.

    1. This Works.
      Alos, after restart my SD card was mounted. I just unmounted when superoneclick was working. After several seconds, root was complete.

      1. Power the phone down, then open the superoneclick app on ur desktop by right clicking and opening as an administrator. Then run the app with the phone off. Once is starts trying to read the device, turn it back on. It should run you completely through the process.

  10. Is this going to have an unroot button as well. I’m assuming it will for all of the people that would like to unroot for the ota updates….

    Hey thanks unlockr for the speedy responses a little while ago. U guys are great!

    1. Nevermind, found the answer from ShortFuse on XDA site. NAND protection is the problem. I really wanted to try this method.

        1. Can’t get the superuser. lupcho posted the same error below

          ShortFuse posted this at 4:24pm on XDA

          The following phones have a NAND write protection on /system:

          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)

          This program can root it, but it won’t be able to copy su to /system
          Until I figure out a way around this, use unrevoked.com

  11. Why is the Samsung Captivate singled out with the tab. I need to know because thats my phone. Is it just to unlock it or what?

  12. Hi, i have HTC Desire,
    i tried the procedure and i got stuck on “Getting mount Path…”
    Thanks to the workaround described by Anthony, i passed this and the process finished by stating OK in the end, the same as seen on the video! I restarted the phone but there is NO superuser icon in the applications list. !!??!!

    How can i be sure that i have ROOTED the prone ?
    please advise.

    1. oouuups
      i did not saw this errors:

      Pushing su…

      OK

      ———————-
      i got about 22MB free on the phone? Does this process needs more ?

      1. I’m getting the same error with almost 140 Mb of free space

        Any suggestions?

    Endless loop. Where do I go from here? Is ADB procedure my only option.

  15. sup ppl,
    I’m scared trying to root my phone, i recently tried the manual tutorial for my milestone phone, and in the first step of simply adding the ADBrecovery and getting to the exclamation with X and ON button, the program rejected the file and then it started to turn off before some seconds of being on.
    the way to get it back to normal was guessing to erase the files as fast as i could and it worked.
    could this “patch” somehow make my milestone work odd?

    1. Btw, what does this do? just add an app for the superuser? will i have to activate it every time i want to tether wifi? how does that app really works?

      1. This will root your phone permanently. Then just follow the next section in the procedure to get wifi tethering and your all set. No need to repeat the process again.

  16. The “running rageagainstthecage” loop is by design. Sometimes you have to try multiple timest. Poor usb connectivity is usually the cause

  17. Ran this on my G1 v1.6 DMD64 with 34.74MB internal storage available and 7.41GB on SD card. Ended up with read only access, see the following:

  19. Has anyone tested this on a Nexus One with Android version 2.2.1 aka FRG83? It’s the infamous version of froyo that blocks root via the wifi exploit method. I’m not too familiar with this process but have carefully tried it on mine and it recognizes my device as already being rooted…anyone else have that issue? I also have the original Super User icon in my app drawer. I cannot get super user access to anything on my device? is their a way to uninstall/undo the original oneclick-root and start from scratch? please tweet me a respnose.

    1. hey me and ben (listed earlier in Comments) have both rooted our devices using this method.
      -enable usb debugging and turn off your device and connect via usb
      -run superoneclick program and click on root.
      -it should say waiting for device.
      -after this appears turn on your device while still connected to the pc
      -program should now complete and if successful a message will pop up saying that you are now rooted.

      if after doing this you wish to load a custom rom do not use Rom Manager. it doesn’t work on android 2.2.1 and at the minute i cannot install apps fro the market.

  20. Plz Help…..
    I am having spice Mi300 currently running on android 2.1
    I want to know about following things………..

    1. Is there any chance to get the phone bricked by using super one click method….
    2. I am having the adb file for my spice mi 300 in CD ROM.Should I replace the one in the software with this one
    3. Is there any way to unroot the phone once rooted.
    4. Does rooting voids the manufacturer warranty

    1. First off, I’m not anyones personal help desk. If I can help and happen to be at the computer I will gladly help, but don’t get mad at me if I don’t answer every question on this site. The site is a resource to help you, use it in conjunction with any other resources on the internet, try to help each other collectively.
      Second off, its a new program and the developer of the program is updating it as he goes. We appreciate you reporting your issues and the developer has his forum at the link where you downloaded the program, I’m sure he’s now aware of the issues and will update the program asap. Check his forum and see if he added anything to the first post about your device yet.
      Also, if this procedure doesn’t work for you and you don’t want to wait for him to update it, feel free to click on How Tos at the top of the site, then Android, then your phone and use one of our other procedures that work for your phone.

  21. im sorry im just a little upset i been tryin to root my phone since yesterday all day n it still hasent work your other method fails me as well n i folled dat one first step by step by step the other method said update failed main verson older something like dat n i try trouble shoot it go on other places n on other websites no one really had the answe r on how to by pass dat im not mad it just seem like other ppl posted the same thing bout it being a memory erroy n u didnt say anything back to them about it nor me which is why i said that but yae ok ill go on the developers page but since u made the video i thought u could assist me

    1. If this process isn’t working, try the other process again. If it is saying main version older, you probably need to make a Gold Card. There is a step by step instructional for that on here as well.

          1. how come i need to purchase a gold card how much are they n everyone else dosent have to purchase this gold card to root there devices i wanna do it without that device please

  22. does any one has any idea of how much time does Running rageagainstthecage… last? its sort of stuck there :S
    i am using a milestone
    how much does this process last?

  23. Worked sucessfully on MyTouch 3G v1.0 (after Solution 3)…Have no idea what to do next <<>>can anyone stir me into the direction of some tutorials on how to use “superuser” & on how to install froyo 2.2

    Thank You,

  24. Works well for me 🙂

    I upgraded to the leaked version of 2.2 for the samsung captivate and used this to root the phone and worked great!

    I thought it was easy enough for samsung galaxy s users but this is even better lol

    now running the cognition 2.2 beta rom and loving life!

  25. I have run the programme to my samsung galaxy portal which is on t mobile(uk). I used super one click and it said phone rooted, I look at my phone settings its saying im using kernel 2.6.29 root@se-se610 #2 and my build is eclair.xxjd2.All looks god but when i try to use any wifi teether prog or any prog needing root it says not rooted and the superuser does not ask for access any ideas any one?!

    1. is the superuser icon in your applications?

      try downloading the odin one-click to get back to stock firmware and try this one click root method again.

      I had some problems before with the same thing your seeing on my i897 (captivate) but once i went back to stock and re-rooted, i have not had any problems since then 🙂

      i even got this method working on the 2.2 beta so

  26. not to be a dick or anything, but I think you should add myTouch slide to the “Not working list”
    it seems like none of us have been able to get it to work.

    1. Did any of you read the list in the Before You Begin? It’s been on the list since last night lol
      Click on the link in bold at the bottom of the procedure and then click on the MyTouch Slide and you’ll have the procedure that we know works on the MyTouch Slide instead 🙂

  30. Everything worked fine with the original MyTouch 3G[right after I performed solution 3]…What do I do after superuser is installed? Not sure how to root it (MyTouch 3G 1.0)

  31. I have a HTC Magic with the latest official update from HTC (Kernel 2.6.27-5b476e83 htc-kernel@and18-2 #99). When running the SuperOneClick it finishes successfully (last transcript below). The Superuser app is installed. However no applications needing root are working and the Superuser app never pops up… Running su comand in terminal also fails…
    Any ideas?

    OK
    chmod su…
    OK
    Remounting system with read-only access…
    OK

    1. Please report this on the forum where you downloaded the Application from (I think it’s a bug he needs to work out).
      In the meantime, if you need root, click on How To’s at the top of the site > Android > then your phone and use those procedures.

      1. I reported this on the xda forum for this app. The older versions were saying rooted but only installing the superuser app. The new 1.5 version says not rooted. I think the original MyTouch may need to be added to the does not work list. I think it’s failing because of the need for the gold card in your other root method.

  33. Well, I got the Superuser app in the drawer, but when I try to check my behold2 got rooted or not by download the copy paste it trial app, the app said that i don’t have root access…????
    Any idea??? HELP!!! PLZZ!!!

  34. Will this work on my boring behold 2 with 1.6??? Could I play GAMELOFT games afterwards? Can ANDROID phones be rooted from the phone only-I don’t have a computer,because I mostly use my phone. Would this brick my phone, I don’t really understand rooting + Im 16 so that would piss me off ahahaha, but seriously I need to know because im tired of my phone!!! It has no multi-touch, it restarts, overheats, battery dies quickly, can’t install new apps or gameloft games, freezes, emulators are slow and choppy, along with millions of other problems I didn’t name:(

  35. This worked flawlessly on my Sprint Hero 2.1. It took less than 3 minutes, once I updated the .NET framework. Thank you so much for the easy to follow video instructions. I do much better with pictures to follow :). Next, I plan to follow your video for installing a custom ROM tomorrow.
    By the way, this is the first time I have ever done anything like this. I have been reading about it for months, just seemed too daunting a task, until I came across this video. Thanks again.

  36. Hello, I’m trying this on my Cliq XT, and It did get stuck on Waiting for device. But then i got passed that somehow(not sure how) and it did a couple things and then said error:device not found. ?

    What is happeneing? I have it on usb debug mode.

    Thanks!

  37. Mine gets to this and then just stands there even when trying some of the other tips here, but newer sais Rooted. It restarts the ADB server and then waits for the device after that.

    Any tips on how to make it continue?

I managed to get Superuser on my phone but it does nothing.When I try to us the ROM manager by “Flashing ClockworkMOd Recovery”, I get “an error occurred while attempting to run privileges commands!” Nothing seems to work with this. What can I do?

  39. Also Superuser says there is new version but I can’t download and install it so it put it on my SDcard and to boot in Recovery mode and flash it. My recovery mode comes up with the triangle and then does nothing. Any idea why?

    i followed te instructions to the letter with my G1/HTC Dream but it always give me this message

  43. Have got the same problem as David, superuser says that there is a newer version. When trying to install it says that it’s not possible and that i need to flash the zip on the sd card via recovery mode. When going into recovery mode (volume down, call , end call) the phone is completely reset to factory settings… the superuser icon is still there but i suppose i lost root. I can’t check it because i can’t download any apps from the market anymore…
    Any ideas??

  44. I’m a little confused here. It says HTC Legend is NOT supported with this one, but on HTC legend how to’s page there’s a link to this how to…

  45. Hey Bench, the recovery mode is “Home+Power”. The recovery symbol comes up and then locks up on my phone. I have to pull the battery. What I don’t understand is how can Superuser be on my phone but not work. I could realy use an answer here.

  46. It seems like on the original MyTouch 3G the most any of the SOC versions will do is install the superuser app which you can download from the market. It isn’t actually rooting. In the other root method on here you have to make a gold card. I believe this program is basically trying to do the same process without the gold card which just doesn’t work.

  47. Hi theunlockr, I used this method to root my behold 2 (donut). I finished the process and actually have Superuser appear on my phone, but after downloading several “rooted only apps”, I think that my phone isn’t rooted yet because those apps said that my phone doesn’t have root access yet. Please let me know if any behold 2 user having this problem too. Please tell me what I did wrong or my phone doesn’t supported yet? Is there any other one click root method for behold 2? Thanks!

      1. This procedure is experimental and the developer of the app is adding improvements constantly.
        If you have an issue with this procedure, simply click How Tos at the top of the site, then Android, then your phone and use one of the other rooting methods. We posted this one because it is easier than most, but it doesn’t always work.

  48. I am very underwhelmed. After all the optimistic promises, both in this forum and in xda-developers, I connected the phone (USB debugging already long since enabled) launched the program (1.5.1), saw many promising status messages only to watch it end with:

    Device was not rooted
    FAILED

    No explanation of why it failed, not even a hint. On the contrary: just a few lines before this, it said “Running rageagainstthecase” ROOTED.

    This is not good programming practice, to say ‘ROOTED’ and then change your mind, saying “not rooted”.

    This is after I ran the Superoneclick, and it stops a mount path. Failed. I stopped the program, and started it again. It gave me the above response with a small window saying Device is rooted! However, I do have the superuser icon on my phone. I downloaded the terminal emulator. when I open the terminal I have the “$”. I type in “su” I get permission denied. I’m not sure what I did wrong.

    I have the Motorola Cliq MB200 running Eclair2CLIQ Beta1
    Firmware version: 2.1-update
    Kernal version: 2.6.29

  50. This does not work on the original MyTouch 3G. If you read the thread here you will see others having the same problem. It will give a message that it failed but, it will put the super user icon on the phone. DO NOT USE THIS ON THE ORIGINAL MYTOUCH 3G.

    1. It has worked fine for others on the MyTouch.
      But if you are having an issue, simply click the link in bold at the bottom of the procedure to be taken to our How To’s page and select the MyTouch from there to be presented with other rooting procedures for the G1.
      (You can also click How To’s at the top of the site, then Android, then the MyTouch)
      MAKE SURE TO CHECK IF YOUR PHONE HAS A 3.5MM HEADPHONE JACK AT THE TOP, IF IT DOES ITS A MYTOUCH 1.2, IF NOT, IT IS AN ORIGINAL MYTOUCH.

      1. This actually only partially works on the MyTouch. It will only give shell root that is lost after reboot. No full root. I tried downgrading to Cupcake since that is required in the other process. That doesn’t work either. The people on hear that are saying it works think that because it does install the Superuser.apk and with the shell root, you get the #. But it does not fully root the phone to where you can flash a custom recovery and install custom roms.

  51. Had a brief back and forth with short fuse on xda earlier. He said for this to work the phone needs to have S-OFF. The original MyTouch 3G has S-ON. The only way I have found to get the phone over to S-OFF is to flash a different recovery. So you might as well just do the other method on here.

  52. Hey there! I have a HTC hero for telus and I ran the one click method. Everything when well but at the very end it said okay.. then the message your device was not rooted. But on my phone it has the Super User icon and it seems to function. So I guess my question is.. Am are rooted or not?

I did have a bit of a panic when my Data wasn’t working but I didn’t realize that the APN got wiped. Once I added that info it was like my phone was brought back from the dead and now I couldn’t be happier.. well with my phone at least. Thanks folks! you’re the Gear!

    Any thoughts?

  59. HELLO, can i root my captivate running 2.2 froyo using this?… or do you have other instructions on how to root froyo on captivate?

  67. Is it me or is there NO ONE that can give me STEP BY STEP instructions on how to over clock my droid? I thought my desktop was getting too old because it cant open some of the files needed to overclock so I went and got a laptop 2 days ago (with windows 7), I reinstalled the programs and it still cant open the SAME files!!)
    Anyone have an answer, or better yet, a solution to this?

  68. SAMSUNG TRANSFORM…….WORKED PERFECTLY……this is a temporary root though as far as i understand …if im wrong correct me, but once my phone reboots i will be unrooted correct??

  69. I rooted my droid x with this method but i had to extract the zip file on the root of my sd card and run it from my cd card The directions say do not mount SD card but It still worked, I am rooted, but i was wondering what happens if you mount the sd card? Would I still be able to unroot later on? This was the only way to root, it would not let me root my phone without mounting sd card. Can someone plz help?? Plz email me @ alexdiaz973@gmail.com
    Thanks

    1. your phone is rooted this hapened ot my droid when i rooted it the old way i dont know exactly what failed but it oviously isnt vital because i loaded a custom rom and had wifi tether as well as set cpu and they all worked

    I used 1.4 to root my Droid running 2.2, finished in minutes and was so easy with the instructions provided.
    I have to send my Droid back as I just got a replacement due to my package installer being super buggy, before I ever used Super One Click.
    2 questions I could use some guidance on.
    Since I am sending this rooted by 1.4version back, I think I should unroot it before shipping, would 1.5 do that or not due to rooting by 1.4?
    And second since 1.4 worked great on this model, should I use that to root the new droid2.2, or go with 1.5 due to its having more functionality?
    I’d be grateful if anyone could shoot me a reply when time allows as I have to ship this Droid back in a few days or I will have to pay a penalty.
    You can msg me back here on the site or on this thread, whatever is easier for you.
    I would really appreciate any input/recommendations on this matter.
    thanks again

    1. Hello,
      not sure if you still having this problem. I have a Droid 1 and was running in to the same issue. I am running froyo and have apps i had moved to the SD card. All i had to do is to get a different SD card an it worked as it should, but i think that it was getting stuck because the SD card was in use by the apps running on it. Any way… It worked for me, Gingerbread here we go!!!

Turned the phone off with it still plugged in, closed the program where it was hosed up, opened the program back up fresh and clicked ROOT. Then I turned on the phone. It rooted the phone while the SD card was disconnected and allowed me to do what I wanted then. 🙂

    It’s HTC Tattoo … i need some help here plz ..

  85. 1st I want to thank you for all your hard work. your SuperOneClick method is an attempt to allow those of us not so “droidsavy” the phone Freedom’s we desire. So Thanks !
    With my htc Hero “sprint” 2.1 and with several tries last after a device boot. I made it through your SuperOneClick method. got the OK. yet I have no SU icon in apps. SuperOneClick method prog now says I am rooted. where did I go wrong what. everything looks the same. still unable to remove pre installed apps.
    maybe im not really rooed.

  86. Jim HTC Magic 32A (TIM Brazil)

    No good news over here my dear Unlokr friend… I guess I’m just UnLuck. Er… 🙂
    I followed your instructions precisely and your app even SAID that my phone was rooted… I looked into my apps and Super User (Skull) was indeed installed.
    But after installing the RomManager (free version) and tried to loead the Recovery System in order to install my Cyanogen ROM from a ZIP file. It says I have no privileges or something like that… So it was a no go…

    Below is my HTC Magic info (TIM Brazil):

    SAPPHIRE PVT 32A SHIP S-ON H
    HBOOT-1.76.0007 (SAPP60000)
    CPLD-12

    Any help and updates would be very appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Jim

    1. Oddly enough this happened to me once using this procedure on a g1… Let the creator of the app know the issue and then try a different procedure on our site for your phone. Go to How Tos then Android then HTC Magic.

  88. I am HTC TMobile G1 DMD64 with 1.6 TMobile update. I use the one-click method, and it goes through fine. It tells me if I want to test SU, I do, and it fails. It says it is rooted, but it isnt. Shell root is the same. I factory reseted, and it still is bugged. Please, someone help I need the tether :/

  90. Anyone know what the wait time is to have your account activated to allow downloads at xda-developers?
    I’ve been waiting for two days.
    how does one click get past the locked ROM versions that other procedures require a down-grade? Will I need to down-grade before executing one-click?
    and finally, is there an alternative link to one touch, I’m spoiled by immediate gratification 🙂

    1. Update, I was able to download super one click, but now I’m stuck when it runs.
      It never finds my device I have a sprint hero with build 2.31.651.7
      I guess my question is, does this procedure still require that we downgrade to the original release of android 2.1?
      Thanks for any feed back

    2. you should get an email from xda-developers site almost immediately after you register. check your spam folder, as yahoo mail marked mine as spam.

  113. If you get stuck at Running rageagainstthecage… or Waiting for device…

    Maybe you can try this, connect your Droice (Android Device) to your laptop until it’s Android CD drive appears. Copy adb.exe and AdbWinApi.dll to your superoneclick folder (make sure those file are newer). Then run superoneclick.exe (run as administrator in Vista/7).

    USB Debugging mode should be ON. SD card doesn’t need to be unmounted, just leave it there.

    It works on my CSL Mi700.

  114. I have the LG Opitmus M from Metro Pcs, it;s Android 2.2. Do you know if it will work? I read something about “Bricking” phones if the root process goes wrong, if this goes wrong will it brick my phone?

  115. You can try if it isn’t listed as a phone that it doesn’t work on. Otherwise click on How To’s attnews top of the site then Android then click on the Aria and do one of those procedures.

  116. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I used the SuperOneClick a few months back to root my Fascinate and it went smooth as butter. Yesterday I wanted to try the “Windows Phone Android” app from the market and it sent the device into a Force Close loop. I ended up to restore to factory. Which I thought was no big deal because I could always root again because it was so easy. Well not so simple. I started root on SuperOneClick and it fails at Killing ADB Server…. and Message box pops up and reads:

    Unhandled exception…….. blah blah…… THe system cannot find the file specified.

    Any ideas? Something in the folders changed? On my SD Card?

    Please HELP.

  120. Hi 🙂
    I’m using a:
    Samsung Galaxy GT-i9000
    Firmware: 2.2

    and rooted my phone using your SuperOneClick video on YouTube.
    Runs super-smoothly!

    Yesterday, I also rooted my Galaxy Tab with SuperOneClick – same result 🙂 very fast & easy.

    I can only recommend using SuperOneClick for Samsung Galaxy generation users!

  124. I have the mytouch 3g 3.5 mm 32a. Do I really have to got the gold card route to root cause superuser is not allowing permissions this way?

  125. I have a Mytouch 3g and when I root the phone it works. When I try to load a ROM everything works up until I have to reboot the phone. All it does is continue to reboot at the start screen. I can’t get past this point! I’ve tried different ROMs, and it keeps doing the same thing. Anyone have any suggestions? Oh and I have the 2.2.1 firmware if this helps…

  126. I have the MyTouch 3g. It continues to say:

    Killing ADB Server…

      1. You have to go to SETTINGS then APPLICATIONS then ENABLE USB DEBUGGING . Make sure that is checked or it will not discover your phone.

    1. not sure if this is the real way it should work…installed the superone. didn’t work, installed the pdanet. ran, didnt work, THEN while the root was still “running” i exit out of pdanet and it started running…dont even know if this is true but i have the icon on there, and the pdanet icon…do i need that anymore?

      also i have 2.2.1 running on mytouch 3g… will this root make it any better, and will roms like SuperCSDIv4 ReX3mix ROM work? or will i get more trouble? because right now i have no idea where to go from here, all i want to do is make this phone operate a little faster! if anybody can decifer any of the following please tell me what it means…

  127. i have a android 2.1 and it’s gotten to the point where it says waitin on phone…then it goes back to killing ADB server until it gets to waiting on phone again and it just keeps doing this… whats wrong?

  128. This worked on my daughters virgin mobile intercept. I was stuck forever on waiting for device but the problem was solved when i used a shorter cord.

  129. Ok, this works to root my daughters Virgin Mobile intercept but the after some time I have to re-root. I dont know the exact time but its less than an hour. I click root and apps that need root work fine but if I put the phone down and come back to it the same apps say i dont have root access. I can re-root and start the process again. Any suggestions? Thank you

  130. does this work on the new t-mobile lg Optimus ???/ can you guys make a tutorial on how to root that phone and load a custom rom

  131. I have the Motorola Cliq (the first one) and this is where i got stuck
    Killing ADB Server…
    Then an error pops up saying “Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    The system cannot find the file specified.”

    So should i click continue, or will it brick my phone?

  132. ok just wanted to say this is completely stupid! this is not working for my nexus one or my buddies nexus one, Its junk and more than likely a virus or malictious software of some sort, i highly do not reccomend downloading this, it cant find your device delete it, dont work
