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)!

    • TheUnlockr says:

      Might be done already. Just unplug the phone and reboot it and see if superuser permissions is in the apps. Post back and let us know.

    • New_Guy says:

      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.

  7. TheUnlockr says:

    @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

  8. 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

  9. 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

    • TheUnlockr says:

      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.

  10. nevermind. i removed the battery and rebooted. crisis averted. thank your for the super easy to use guide and quick responses

  11. what’s the easiest way to install cyanogen without using ROM manager. i’m not really that techy and anything as easy as possible to use would be best

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

  14. TheUnlockr says:

    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.

    • Chad says:

      I followed all of those instructions to no avail. Not sure what else to do. I think my head is going to explode.

    • Regla says:

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

  15. anyone know what the problems of Rom Manger are.

  16. Number 1, check.
    Number 2, check.
    Number 3 (already have PDANet). Check.
    Number 4, check.

    Still gets stuck on “Getting mount Path…”

  17. Tried it another five times. No luck. Not working on Droid w/ FRG22D. I’ll come back in another few months and try to root again…

  18. Ben says:

    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!

  19. JA says:

    hey Theunlockr can we use the usual method to load a custom rom on the mytouch 3g??

  20. Joe says:

    will I see the padlock on my N1 if I root with this procedure?

  21. atudor31 says:

    Anyone having trouble with the HTC Incredible? Running 2.2 w/ Verizon and getting the following error, any ideas?

    • atudor31 says:

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

      • TheUnlockr says:

        NAND protection shouldn’t be an issue so long as it finished the procedure (the only phone’s with NAND protection are the HTC Evo and G2).

        • atudor31 says:

          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

    • TheUnlockr says:

      All that you put in your comment (I removed) had no errors. You got the OK at the end, you’re done.

  27. Baal says:

    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?

    • Baal says:

      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?

  31. Gabe says:

    So, wouldn’t I want a custom ROM handy for when I do get root? And this will work on 1.6/DMD64?

  32. ShortFuse says:

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

  49. 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.

    • TheUnlockr says:

      Read the comments. Two people with nexus on that exact version got this to work…

    • 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.

    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,

  58. Dave K says:

    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!

  59. monkey mike says:

    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?!

    • Dave K says:

      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

        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.

    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:(

    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.

    I have a G3 MyTouch (with the headphone jack on top) V1.6.

What can I do?

  86. David says:

    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?

    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??

    running 1.5 stock

  96. David says:

    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.

  97. jbrew78 says:

    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.

  98. David Nguyen says:

    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!

      • TheUnlockr says:

        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.

  100. Matt J. says:

    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

  102. Carl says:

    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.

    • TheUnlockr says:

      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.

      • jbrew78 says:

        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.

  103. Les says:

    i have a Droid X 2.2 & Im stuck on “Running rageagainstthecage…” what to do next?

  104. jbrew78 says:

    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.

  105. 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 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

    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

        Try and run the program with your phone in recovery mode. Or try turning usb debugging off then running the program and turning it on when it says waiting for device.
        Otherwise search our site for another how to root for your phone.

      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!!!

    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 🙂

    CLICK ON HOW TOS AT THE TOP OF THE SITE THEN ANDROID THEN YOUR PHONE AND DO ONE OF HE OTHER ROOTING/ROM PROCEDURES FOR YOUR PHOME INSTEAD.

  214. 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.

    does it work on the aria??? cause other people have their aria rooted

  217. TheUnlockr says:

    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.

    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.

      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…

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?

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

    Hey not sure if this helps or if i’m too late i just tried this with my Droid 1 on my windows 7 64bit pc and it worked; what I did was I installed the

    jdk package first, then installed superoneclick without opening the program just left it installed.
    then I added the SuperOneClick.exe path and adb.exe path to my exclusion list on my antivius [nod32]

    then i downloaded the pdanet and installed it; it prompted me to connect my phone and set it to debugging mode by going to the settings-applications-development. When the install finished i deactivated the debugging mode; removed the usb cable, and rebooted my phone.

    Then I loaded up superoneclick.exe by right clicking run as administrator. I also deactivated my firewall and antivirus as for temporarily.

    Once my phone rebooted I went into the settings and set it to debugging mode. Then I plugged in the usb cable without mounting the sd card just left it at the debugging window. You have to make sure the phone does not go to sleep as it will disconnect from the pc so i pressed a blank area on the screen every few seconds.

    Then I clicked on Root and it went through successfully. Hopefully that helps a little, not sure but it worked for me 🙂

    first of all i have to say this is amazing. i have tried 3 other root methods and this is the only one that worked. well i need to update the superuser but every time i try an error shows up and doesn’t let me it says an error occurred and a zip file (su-2.3.1-bin-signed.zip) has been placed on your sdcard, please reboot into recovery mode and flash it to update your su binary. what does this mean?

    You guys might want to check your drives its a big key!! You have to have the motorola usb drivers all you have to do is go to google type in http://www.motorola.com find the usb drivers and ur set…. The same with other phones go to the models site and get the drivers up to date and install ur drivers!

  336. Dsanchz says:

    Was hoping one of you could help me out here… I am finally getting round to rooting my X10 and following the instructions from this website until i got a pop up box error which I believe was in reference to the O.S not being 2.0 etc

    Now I am running .NET framework 3.5 on my xp machine which is the latest .net framework. The pop up box was YES, NO, CANCEL.. i clicked cancel as i didnt want to stuff it up any more lol

    Any ideas as to why this pop up box came up? I cant remember the exact wording as i am a bit reluctant to run the root fix again, but if its ok to run again I can try it again to be more specific on the issue

    I’ve just managed to get my Dell Streak 2.2 (FroYo) with O2 rootd after much trying with SoC. Steps I took on the succesful attempt were as follows:

    1. Run SoC as administrator (Windows 7)
    2. Remove SIM card and mSD card from the phone. Turn the phone on
    3. Connect phone with cable, ensure USB debugging is enabled.
    4. Turn Dell Sync notification off (move slider to the left so it turns red)
    5. Decline option to mount USB storage (even though SD card has been removed)
    6. Select the ‘rageagainstthecage’ exploit in SoC
    7. Click root
    8. Voila!

    I have the superuser icon, and have downloaded rom manager…now Im stuck. Rom manager wont go to green screen…no matter what I do. I have followed all the tips, and all unlocker videos to the tee. But rom manager will not go through the reboot setup that shows on the videos and go to the green screen, it stays on the blue screen. When trying reinstall pkgs it just gets an error and I have to reboot and try again, I can not install cognition, or any other apps…I did get titanium backup installed, pro version, but so far thats all I have been able to do. I am running the 2.2 froyo that at&t gave us a while back, I also have downloaded the latest version of cognition…nothing works. Any ideas as to how to get rom manager to work and go to the green screen so I can install cognition?
