The method, will work for the Bell/rogers HTC Raider only for now, and we cannot really confirm or comment on whether it will work outside of that or not.

The SuperOneClick app that has possibly been an Android user’s favorite rooting solution since over a year now, has finally been released with the popular ZergRush exploit which can be found in almost every other rooting method for the latest Android handsets out there. Personally, I miss those good old ADB days of manually pushing files and more, but that’s me. The best rooting method is undoubtedly the one that gets the job done quickly and without requiring much effort on part of the user or for that matter a novice Android user, minimizing the risk factor. Forum members at XDA have reported SuperOneClick to now be working with the AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket gaining root access on the device in no time.
So if you haven’t already rooted your Galaxy S II Skyrocket, SuperOneClick is the advised way to go!
Earlier we covered a guide on how to root the Motorola Droid Razr using the exploit meant for the Droid 3 as told by DroidLife.

Lucky for them and us, XDA-Developers forum member FrAsErTaG
has just released a one click root solution that also carries with it a partial custom recovery as well.

Samsung Galaxy Note is phone-cum-tablet that seems to be Samsung Galaxy S II’s older sibling. The phone is meant for business professional who need to scribble notes, share information and fix meetings on the go. The gigantic 5.3 Inch screen with a Stylus is a definite try to bring Stylus back in fashion. And if you have this phone and were looking to root it, then there is some great news for you. Senior XDA member and Android developer, netchip, has managed to port ClockworkMod Recovery on this phone. Although installing ClockworkMod Recovery itself has nothing to do with rooting Galaxy Note, but you can easily flash SuperUser to gain rooting privileges.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a high-tier Android phone that comes loaded with 1 GHz scorpion processor and 8 MP primary camera. The phone has managed to gain a massive fan base since its release. The developer community is also consistent in providing support for this phone and we have seen many hacks, tweaks and mods emerging in the past to enhance user experience. The recent production of these handsets, recently made available, have largely remained a difficult challenge for developers to gain valid permanent root access.
Do you know about Samsung Admire ? Well if you do, then you probably have one. Samsung Admire is a mid-tier Android phone that is meant for social media addicts. The phone launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board and comes packed with all social networking tools without any TouchWiz hindrance. The phone finally stands rooted with DJrBliss’s exploit. It is interesting that a similar exploit, which gained permanent root on Droid 3 and other Droid phones, is responsible for gaining root privileges on Samsung Admire as well.
Samsung Galaxy S II is a dual core, high tier Android phone that has managed to gather huge fan base since its launch. The stock Video Player app on Samsung Galaxy S II allows the user to see videos in portrait mode. However, users need to have auto-rotation set to ON in settings for videos to stream/ play in portrait mode. Electrox666, Senior XDA member and Android developer, has managed to integrate a rotation toggle in video player that lets you easily change orientation of the video. The hack basically removes SRS effects toggle and replaces it with a rotation icon. Another advantage of this tweak is that you can easily lock video playback in landscape or portrait mode without having to go in Settings menu. Read More
