    Here's an one click root tool for Android, UniversalAndRoot:
    A new and simple root method..."UniversalAndroot" - Android @ MoDaCo

    Developed by some Taiwanese developers on the root exploit released on xda. Comments on the blog are generally positive.

    It is also opensource (shakalaca's UniversalAndroot at master - GitHub), which is scary. But that's a story for another day.

    Just install the APK and follow the instructions: http://bit.ly/aa4jxJ

    May take more than one try


    Another alternative Superoneclick:

    Also Z4Root:

    Ya. Too bad it doesn't work. Would have made this easier for the newbies.

    Hi all, I'm the developer of Universal Androot. It will be great help if you can give me the ddms output when doing root with this program, or I can upload special version to help rooting ;-)

    Any updates on this? I am looking for a 1 click solution. I guess I just completely don't understand how to root it any other way. I just get messages that keep saying I'm not allowed to do this and that. It's frustrating.

    Thanks to all of you who work every day to continue developing things for all open source software.

    It does work. But apparently not on everything. I am a newbie and at first I couldn't understand why I couldn't save my work after I discovered RootExplorer. I was delighted when I installed Univesal Androot on my Zenithink ZD180 epad running Android 2.1 and it allowed me to edit and save files. However, when I tried it on a 7" Eken M70003 running 1.6 it hangs before the installation completes. I'm now looking for a one-click solution for it, too. Any ideas for it?

    I learned about them thanks to iBeau who was kind enough to send me this link

    iBeau dot net ยป Easy Root & txPower fix on Zenithink ZT-180

    to his blog where he gives links to the programs and offers some tips on using them. You'll want them so you can make the edits so you can join an adhoc wireless network, i.e. tether your tablet to your smartphone.

    I know that the first step is to identify the tablet then second is to apply the correct rooted mod.

    The questions here is, if I have an update, how do I make it root?

    Instructions such as these,

    1. Open terminal
    2. Write shellcode for Android
    3. Compile shellcode
    4. Run shellcode
    5. Change root password
    6. Add user to sudo ring
    7. Enjoy root

    Can anyone give a detailed example on how to do it? There could be an init script that does it or something like that. Thanks.

    I just rooted my tablet with it running the factory firmware - no update or mod. Did it via adb by mounting the file system read/write, pushed "su" and "Superuser.apk" to the device, changed permissions on the "su" file, rebooted the tablet. Now I can get root with "su" commands in the Terminal Emulator on the tablet and root-only apps ask permission to run with admin privileges.

    It is apparently not that easy on all devices, but nobody could seem to tell me if it would work or not so I gave it a shot and it worked.

    (the exact commands I used over adb are in this post)

    Shakalaca, I would like to ask your assistance with Universalandroot.

    I have a tablet that is the FR-809 model. Specs are:
    Processor: Freescale iMX515 800 Mhz ARM Cortex A8 Chip, Operation System: Google Android 2.2 Froyo (Support Flash 10.1),

    ROM: 4GB NAND Flash, Memory: 512M DDR RAM, External Memory: Support TF / Mini SD Card up to 32G

    Display 800 * 600 (16:9) Resolution, 8 Inch TFT LCD, Input: Resistive Touch Panel, Virtual KB, WiFi: 802.11b/g,USB2*2.0, High Speed OTG,

    When I try to run your program it stops when trying to install toolbox and the gives and error message of "Failed ! No ---Fu goo ---"

    If you can help with a version that will work, it would be wonderful. If you need more info on the tablet plase let me know what you need and how to access it. I am still learning a lot related to android.



    Thank you and Happy New Years.

    none of the above have worked on my zt-180 z4root and Universal Androot say they have rooted the phone yet busybox will not install says no root. super one click says it rooted the tablet yet it fails its own test. su will not allow access to root. any ideas? really need to get this thing rooted to turn off the 3g which isn't there....I have a thread started on the zenthink 180 v1 board where I list all specs and info on the tablet and what all I have tried. I would even be willing to root manually if someone could just give me a walk through on it. not even burn tool seams to work on my tablet. I think I have a newer version that hasn't been rooted yet just not sure.

    I used GingerBreak, had my Acer Iconia rooted in less than 5 minutes, super easy, download the file, transfer to the Acer Root folder, l transfered to the tmp folder, used file explore on acer to locate file and launched it, its that simple, then increase the speeds, use CPU Tuner from the Android Market
