Root Countless Android Devices With One Click Using Framaroot

Advertisement

In the initial days of Android, one-click rooting methods were all the rage, and the norm when it came to rooting. Though the OS kept on becoming increasingly secure with each update, and in addition to that, device manufacturers as well as mobile carriers kept on adding stronger and stronger protection against exploits, making it harder to root. Nowadays, it is extremely hard to find a single one-click app that can root many devices, and users have to resort to methods specific to their particular phone or tablet. All that is set to change, thanks to XDA-Developrs senior member alephzain, who has recently released Framaroot – a one-click rooting app for a plethora of devices, both popular and obscure. And the best part is that you don’t even need to connect your device to your computer, run any commands, or flash any files for it. Let’s learn more about this impressive rooting tool and how it works, right after the jump.

What’s great about Framaroot is its extensive device support using the different exploits that it employs, as opposed to methods that can employ only one exploit, and are therefore suited for only certain few devices. Compatible devices include those sporting a range of Quallcomm, MTK OMAP 36xx, Samsung Exynos as well as some non-Exynos ones, Huawei K3V2 and potentially more. These include many famous devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S and Note series, LG Optimus series, Nexus 4, ASUS Transformer and Padfone series and Motorola Droid series, some that aren’t too famous in the US market but are quite popular in some regional markets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Y, several Huawei, Alcatel, Lenovo, ZTE, Meizu & Sharp devices, and countless others by manufacturers that most of us haven’t heard of, such as Parrot, Newman, Highscreen, ZOPO, THL, Texet, Jiayu, Fly, Explay and more. You can find the complete list (which is expanding as more and more people confirm it after trying it out on their devices) at the XDA-Developers thread linked at the end of the post.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

Procedure

  1. Download the latest version of Framaroot from the XDA-Developers thread linked below.
  2. Install the downloaded APK file on your Android device.
  3. Run the app, and if one or more exploit available in the app can potentially root your device, they will be shown on the screen.
  4. You will also see a menu on the screen that lets you decide whether you want to install Superuser or SuperSU after rooting, or unroot a device that’s already rooted. Superuser and SuperSU are both work great, and choosing between them is a matter of personal preference, so select whichever one you want to install.
  5. Tap any of the available exploits to try rooting your device with it. You will get a prompt telling you whether rooting was successful or not. If it failed, try one of the other available exploits.
  6. Once you get the prompt that your device was successfully rooted, simply reboot the device.

That’s it – you should now have a rooted device. In case you used the app to root a device that’s not listed at the XDA thread, don’t forget to post it there so that the developer can add it to the list.

    Good find! Just one question though, will it work on locked bootloaders as well? And if it does, will it factory reset my phone?

    • Jorge Rhor

      Check the list of supported devices on the XDA thread.
      And rooting doesn’t necessarily reset your phone to factory defaults. That happens only when you are flashing a different kind of ROM.

    • It should work on locked bootloaders, because it exploits the OS to inject the necessary files in real-time while it’s already running. And no, rooting with this app (and also rooting in general) does not factory-reset the device.

        Can u do it with unlocked amazon fire phone

  • I’m not power user and i’m not familiar with what’s the diferance between Superuser and Super SU and what exploit should i use. Also is there any chance to ruin my device by following this method? I would like to root my phone (Galaxy S2) but i don’t want to brick it or something.

    • Glad that it worked for you. No, you will not need to unroot it for flashing anything. =)

      Regarding the difference between Superuser and SuperSU, both are root management apps that do the same job, albeit with some differences in the interface and some advanced features that a casual user is probably never going to use. Choosing between the two is really just a personal preference, just like choosing your launcher or SMS app would be a personal preference. Those who don’t know about either can simply choose any of them randomly, and that’ll do just fine.

      • I’d suggest people with rig like mine to use Superuser instead of SuperSU regardless the reviews around the web since SuperSU made my phone slow and apps began to crash. No issues with Superuser 🙂

  • Satyen

    Hi,

    Thanks for the hint to Framaroot. I rooted my 3 years old IdeaPad A1 without any issue. The model is A1 (for Europe) but I had previously flashed an ICS ROM which was for A1107 (for US). The details are as follows:

    Model number: IdeaTab A1107
    Android version: 4.0.4
    Build number: A107I0_A404_001_013_0116_US

    Thanks again.
