  1. Thank you I have looked for a rooting method that would work on my Hero 200. Tried at least 20 different methods and this is the only one that worked (and by far the easiest!)

  2. Trying to get this to work on my Infuse 4g but when it asks for the Superuser 2.0 – 2.2 installation it gives me ” Failed! No – – – Fu goo – – – ” any explanation as to why this is happening or how I can fix it?

  3. Kevin & Rosa From Guam

    Fastboot not enabled on my phone trying to root XT320 here’s my current phone specs below i was to told if i can update my firmware it should fix the problem but i’m not sure don’t wanna brick it.

    Trying to root my phone since it has very little internal storage and uninstall a few pre-loaded apps to get more space if possible i’m i also able to upgrade it to jellybean if not any other update higher the 2.3.6 that i currently installed

    Requesting Motorola DEFY MINI XT320 GingerBread 2.3.6 firmware update

    Model XT320
    Android Version 2.3.6
    Kernel Version 2.6.38.6+buildsrv@lxdx2 #1
    Compilation number 05.28.10
    Flex Version IRD_Optus_Australia_v16_0823FLEXTNBST
    Baseband76XXU-USMEKOLYM-109806-8845
    Software Version TNBST_4_05.28.10RPS

  4. Can this program be updated for Alcatel OT-985 or other devices? Those mobiles seem to have up to 70 MB pre-installed programs, and it’s internal storage is only ~150 MB.

  5. I have installed the app but aggressive says it is infected is that true or is it because of what it does to my LG android?

  6. Failed on Lg optimus P500…is there any way to connect to a proxy based network..as my phone has no option to enter proxy

  7. Does UIniversal Androot work on an Orange San Franciscvo II?
    I need to kill some of the useless pre-loaded apps which will not run on WiFi.

  8. this does not un install default apps in phone. it only removes download apps which every other programs does the same thing. where is an app that will remove stupid shit i dont want on my phone.

  9. How do you mount it to SD card,I tried but can’t, what’s the file names you move the root to and from?

    Android user.

  10. Can anyone help please?

    I have dowloaded the application and it is on my SD card.  The instructions in the post say to copy the APK file to the SD card.  I can’t see suchj a file.  I have copied over all that came with the download?  What am I missing.  Also how do you “run” such a file

    Thanks very much

    • I have now found another more complete copy that includes the APK and downloaded it.  The process started but then stopped saying “universal androot could not be installed on this phone”  I have a tattoo 1.6 which is on the list of phones that could be rooted
      Can anyone help p[lease.  I need to root so I can tether

  11. 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! Your device is rooted!” but i don’t see superuser permissions icon to be added to my program list and i don’t see any change to my phone. I also downloaded from the market a program called Root check and it appears that i don’t have yet root. Can anyone help?

  12. 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

  13. I have the Samsung epic 2 touch aka Samsung galaxy s 2 I also have a Samsung galaxy tablet and a samsung droid chargeI am wanting to root all of the devices but please not in the blog if someone is willing to help please contact me @ dodgeking4x4@gmail.con

  22. I’m thinking of doing this, but my phone is on neither of the lists. Is the Orange San Francisco/ZTE Blade supported? Thanks

  23. What OS would I be running after I rooted my Motorola Droid? I use the flash player a great deal and wonder if it would still be there if I rooted. I remember reading that I would have to go back to 2.0 OS

  24. i am using SE X10 mini pro, Firmware is 2.1-update 1, and build number 2.1.1.A.0.6

    Current i am facing “failed..no..fu..goo…” as well, can kindly advise any solution to solve this issue, so that i manage to rooted my phone…..thx

  25. tried on my x10i, ‘failed..no..fu..go” what did i do wrong? please help, i tried z4 and exploid, also not rooted. my x10i is running 2.1 ver 2.1.1.0.A.16.

  26. and ma frnds sayin that if i increase the speed of the processor i’ll wont able to repair it again….and what is bricking….pls help mwe out quickly…

  27. hey im havin x10 mini….will rooting affect ma phone and what are the advantages of rooting….and when rooting the phone my wifi is turned off automatically and it shows failed…….why

  28. I have a droid 1 running 2.2 build number FRG83D, and when I try to root it, it gets to the point where it says “Rooting…” but then it comes back saying “Failed ! No ~~~ Fu goo ~~~”. Any suggestions?

  29. Roger: go to YouTube and type how to root Droid very easy and look for the one that says something about it being the easiest way then link will be in description

  30. Sounds cool. Any chance to find support for Motorola BackFlip (MB300) running Android 2.1, or is this not likely / ever going to happen? Is there an an alternative rooting method for BackFlip running 2.1? Thx!

  31. Hey there
    i have x10 mini and the UNIVERSAL ANDROOT doesn’t work with me 🙁
    When i press root 🙂 it gave me this : ” Failed ! No~~~Fu goo~~~ “

    • 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.

    • 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

    • 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.

  32. 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

  33. 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?

  34. when i try to install the app thru astro, i got the following message:
    “for security, your phone is set to block installation of application not source in android market”

    what do i do now?

  35. Now that I’m rooted where do I go from here as far as being able to modify some of the useless crap on my phone ?

  36. Android Handsets Not Supported With This Root Method Are:

    HTC Desire
    HTC Legend
    HTC Wildfire

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

    • 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….;)

    • 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.

    I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!I ROOTED IT!

    THANK YOU!
