Rooting/Unrooting your Android device

Here's a one-click root with almost all phones and all android versions. (including the I9000, Droid, Nexus One, etc)


The program requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0+ or Mono v1.2.6+.

If you run Windows XP you can download Microsoft .NET 2.0 Service Pack 2 from here.

If you run MAC or Linux, then you can download Mono v2.6.7+ from here.

Operations systems with native support:
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Ubuntu Hardy (8.04 LTS)
  • Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04)
  • Ubuntu Karmic (9.10)
  • Ubuntu Lucid (10.04 LTS)
  • Ubuntu Maverick (10.10)
  • Debian Lenny (5.0)
You can download SuperOneClick by clicking on this link SuperOneClick v1.7

I have tried this on both Windows XP and Windows 7.

Steps for Rooting:
  1. You NEED to put your phone on USB Debugging mode
  2. You NEED to install make sure the Android drivers for your phone are installed.
  3. Make sure you DO NOT mount your SD card.
  4. Open SuperOneClick as Administrator.
  5. Connect your phone using the USB cable.
  6. Click on "Root" button to root your phone.
  7. Wait till the procedure is completed.(It should not take a long time)
If its taking long time just check if you are getting "Waiting for device..." if so close the application and repeat the procedure.

NOTE:If you still can't get something to run, try doing it in recovery mode.

To Unroot simply follow the same procedure, instead of clicking on Root button click on Unroot button!!!

This software might be detected as malware by some antivirus's.
rageagainstthecage is a root exploit via a fork bomb.
It IS a potentially malicious payload, BUT it is being used with owner's consent to root the phone.


  1. Tried to unroot. Did not work on apollo with 2.1.
    Superuser still available.

  2. Will it give some problem like market doesn't work or something like that?

  3. @Ebin
    Nope! there will not be any issues with market or any other application installed on the phone!

  4. @Steve
    Did you get successfully unrooted msg in the app?
    If the super user app still exits just uninstall it like other apps apps from the device..
