    HTC Wildfire

    Wow, way to go, you’ve got no support for 3 of the most popular Android phones. Useless program.

    • Max

      if you did a little more digging you would know that there is another way to root the HTC devices , i.e. UnrEVOked.

      This is FAR from a useless program, it works on devices that use the Android stock ROM, which is applicable on a LOT of other models…but then again, you’d know that….;)

    • cronos

      if you use this with the droid eris, just root using the temporary root feature. the normal root feature will brick your phone on the next reboot.

    Great job with this app!!! I actually just downloaded it straight to my Milestone and opened it from there and it worked nicely. Now, can I install a 2.2 rom with this root method? If so, how can I do this?

  • j. dan

    i am trying to root a sony ericsson x10…. when i go to install the androot, i get, INSTALL BLOCKED…. i tried to go into setting to click the unknown source, but the problem is, i dont see it… plz help…. i really want to root my phone….

    thanx

  • j. dan

    sorry i didnt finish… all it shows is…. menu>setting>applications> (manage apps or development)

    • http://www.hqraja.com Haroon Q. Raja

      I don’t know what could be the problem there – it is supposed to show that. Try searching for and downloading AppsInstaller from the Android Market and use it to install the androot APK instead. Perhaps that will work.

      • j. dan

        ive tried that… it also said the same thing….. ive also tried to click in the usb debugging but it still says the same thing

        • http://www.hqraja.com Haroon Q. Raja

          Then I am not sure what the problem might be or I would have loved to help. Try asking on forum.xda-developers.com – the people there are most likely to have a solution.

  • edward

    I got the HTC hero 2.2. Does anyone know if this will work for Sprint HTC Hero 2.2 (last update)?

    • http://www.hqraja.com Haroon Q. Raja

      Hero running 2.2 still doesn’t seem to be supported officially as the comparability list mentions it will work only on 2.1 with Hero.

    Thanks.

  • Anthony

    If you brick your Sanyo zio or get stuck in a boot loop here’s what I did to fix mine.

    1. Install all the drivers needed for the zio (plug in the USB and micro USB etc or Google the drivers.

    2. Download the clockwork mod or open zio rom and find a way to put the openzio.zip file on the main directory of the sd card

    3. Put your phone into fast boot mode by pressing the call button and end button at the same time

    4. Follow the instructions on how to use the clock work mod and if you do it correctly the the phone will have an android logo with a circle around it and will eventually boot up to a new phone

    Side note I screwed up my sanyo zio by trying to install the jitter and busybox programs before installing the clockwork mod. Z4root does work for the zio. Now I have the zte score which I was thinking about rooting any questions email me at kooler_than_Jesus666@yahoo.com

  • Farantosp

    I have htc hero and and i updated it from 1.6 to 2.1 I followed the instruction steps rooting my device, in the end it says ”woot!

I also downloaded from the market a program called Root check and it appears that i don’t have yet root. Can anyone help?
