One Click root for Android devices is really becoming the trend now as we have seen their immense popularity among Samsung Galax S and Motorola Droid X users. Finally there is some great news for Google Nexus One owners too as now they can deploy the same single click universal root for their devices in order to root them. Ctbear, a senior member at XDA Forums, has recently posted a list of supported and non-supported devices with universal single click root application.

According to the developer of this easy rooting process, the application uses that same exploit it used for rooting Motorola Droid X. We are not sure if other phones do get rooted with this rooting app, but user comments at XDA forums confirm that this application works “flawlessly” for rooting Google Nexus One on stock Android 2.2 Froyo.
