How to Root Any Android Phone Using Unlock Root


Friday 06th of January 2012 / androidauthority.com
Rooting an Android phone used to be an esoteric practice reserved only for the tech-savvy. Those days are long gone. With Android gaining more world-wide popularity, users of Android devices have also learned the tricks of the trade. Thanks to the hard work of coders, modders, hackers, and developers in the diverse Android community, rooting almost any Android device these days have become nothing more than a simple download, followed by running a program, and finally, clicking on one button. In short, rooting has become easier to do these days.There used to be as many rooting methods as there are Android devices. But, with a tool such as Unlock Root, users no longer need to sift through forums, tutorial pages, and online guides just to find a rooting solution that works on their devices.Unlock Root is a tool that can successfully root and unlock not just one or a handful of Android devices from the same manufacturer but many from different manufacturers. Currently, Unlock Root can root about 250 different handsets from major handset manufacturers such as HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericsson

How to Root Your HTC EVO Shift 4G - Android Authority


Monday 08th of August 2011 / androidauthority.com
If you have been waiting for a long time to get into the root of your HTC Evo Shift 4G and become a “superuser,” you can now temporarily root your device by following this guide.Take note that this method only gives you temporary access to your system’s root directory. This is not a method for permanent rooting. With permanent rooting (also called “permroot”), you have full control over the destiny of your system’s files–including purging them to oblivion.In contrast, the temproot method is very useful if your primary reason for rooting is to use root-enabled apps from the Android Market. “Root-enabled” apps are those apps requiring root access. And, being a temporary solution, your access to root will be restricted again after you hard-reset your phone (i.e., turn off phone, remove battery, insert battery, turn on phone–that’s hard reset in layperson’s terms).In this guide, ClockworkMod Recovery is used to enable the HTC EVO Shift 4G to install custom ROMs or firmware. There are other similar applications, although we have little idea about their rela

How to Root the Motorola Atrix - Android Authority


Friday 01st of April 2011 / androidauthority.com
Motorola released this smartphone using Android 2.2. Before we tell you how to root the Atrix, you should know how root access can help you. Root access allows users to remove bloatware, more fully customize a device, use backup tools, and poke around in the internal system. Now, Atrix users will be able to take full control of their devices on launch day. Root privileges will also allow users to enable application sideloading– something AT&T has restricted on their slate of Android devices. Unfortunately, Motorola has still signed the Atrix 4G bootloader. Motorola Atrix can be easily downloaded using the famous one click tool called the SuperOneClick. This tool has become a great tool for rooting Android based devices.The rooting process is very easy. But prior to going for the rooting process, make sure that you have done your research and are ready to take the slight risk involved in such an act. There is always the biggest disadvantage involved of voiding the company warranty.There are certain steps that you would have to take before you start rooting your Motorola

Still Haven't Received The Android 4.0 Update On Your Transformer TF101? Here's How To Install It Manually


Tuesday 05th of March 2013 / androidpolice.com
Many TF101 owners have been [im]patiently waiting on Android 4.0 to hit their devices for at least a week now to no avail. Of course, knowing an update is floating around out there and having to wait for it is even more frustrating than actually waiting for the update to become available, so ASUS UK took to its Facebook page earlier today with a tip on how to get your hands on the update right now from the ASUS support pages for the TF101.Seems pretty straightforward, right? The only caveat to be aware of is that there are a few different versions of the 4.0.3 update available for different regions, so make sure you download the correct one. Once you figure out which is the correct version for you, simply extract the contents of the downloaded folder, drop it on the root of your TF's internal storage, and the rest should happen automatically. Good luck! Tags:ASUSicsTF101Transformerupdate

Should we revisit our "How do I root X?" policy? - Android Enthusiasts Meta Stack Exchange


Tuesday 03rd of January 2012 / meta.android.stackexchange.com
Edit: The changes have been implemented. Individual device rooting questions are encouraged, though we want answers to be complete -- covering all Android versions. The big rooting question now indexes the individual questions.Recently in chat it was mentioned that our Community Wiki question, How do I root my device?, doesn't quite work. I had been thinking this myself recently and I think it's time we brought it up here on Meta.The crux of the matter seems to be two points:Forum posts are incomplete, badly written, and sometimes just plain wrong. We can do better than just link to them.Rooting methods often vary from version to version. At minimum, we need more than one entry for many of the devices and a way to classify them.Solving these problems via the current post would require adding a lot more information to the post. Even if we didn't include our own rooting guide, we'd still need to add versions numbers, explanations, and so on. The post would become massive.Given this, I think it's best that we create one post per device. These questions should each have one answer with

Sorry, you'll have to wait for the next round.
