Root Any Android Device And Samsung Captivate With Super One-Click App

In case you were looking for a single click root for virtually every Android device, then there is some good news for you. Senior XDA member, CLShortFuse has recently posted a Super One Click Root utility app that not only allows you to root your Android handset but also gives certain useful options like Allow Non Market Apps as well as phone unlock code delivery. This application has been hailed by many of XDA members in the thread and according to app creator:

…I made it. I tested it. It works…

Apart from universally rooting several Android handsets, SuperOneClick provides a single click root for Samsung Captivate on Android 2.2 Froyo as well.

Here is the step by step guide on rooting your Android handset / Samsung Captivate with Super One Click Rooting Application.

This app needs .Net Framework 2.0 or higher to operate.

  1. The first step is to download Super One Click Root App and save it on your desktop.
  2. Once this is done, connect your phone to the computer. it is important to note that after connecting the phone, you must not mount SD card.
  3. Now go to phone settings and enable USB Debugging.
  4. Once this is done, launch SuperOneClick.exe by double clicking.
  5. Now click on Universal tab on screen if you are going to root any Android device like Nexus One, Galaxy S, Droid etc. Click on Samsung Captivate if that’s you phone.
  6. Now simply click on Root tab and wait for the process to finish. It will take some time so hang in there.
  7. After the rooting is complete, click Allow Non Market Apps if you need to.

There you go! you now have a rooted handset ready to accept any custom ROM.

Please note that:

  • Sprint EVO 4G (HTC Supersonic)
  • Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
  • HTC Desire GSM
  • HTC Desire CDMA (HTC BravoC)
  • HTC Aria
  • Droid Eris (HTC DesireC)
  • HTC Wildfire (HTC Buzz)

will only have a single level root with this app and you will only be able to allow non-market apps after root. You can use UnRevoked One Click Root for these devices in order to gain complete tier rooting access of the device.

Here is a video tutorial on deploying Super One Click root on Android devices:

  1. I wish the hacker group anonomous would give the manufactures hell untill they make all their smart phones and tablets rooted out of the box reguardless if I buy from a retail store or by ordering it.

  2. Of course theres supper one click is not avalable to download. If you say it is please show me the direct link thats not a dead link.Also I dont want to be sent to an unrelated site.

  3. Will any SD card do(do they mean the micro sd card or the sim card)? If they mean the micro sd card,I am missing mine,but have a blank one.Will it work? I have a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S(SGH-T959V) with Firmware 2.2.1 and Kernel version 2.6.32.9 Build# Froyo VUVKD1

  4. superoneclick is a piece of shit, it is always non-responsive, I have the most recent drivers available, and when it goes to root, it either cannot get permission, or it freezes, XDA needs to remove this from their website

  5. I noticed these comments are from a long time ago. If i try rooting my phone is someone gonna reply if i need help with it? And do you kno if the LG marqee is compatable with this program?

  6. waiting for device, , , what am i suppose to do, now? also, when i went to setting, it said serial number, not available. does this have anything to do with my rooting issue?

  7. i’ve got a problem with superoneclick. it sees my phone, okay, whatever, but it always gets stuck running psneuter. it won’t go any farther. i’ve been sitting here waiting for it to do something, but nothing is happening. samsung transform ultra is the phone. please help!

  8.  Both sites (this and its referred link) are a waste of time. Zip file is
    USELESS. Just a ploy to get you to sign up to file server. HOW STUPID
    ARE THEY? You’d think the first file you get from the site would be
    intact and usable.

    the author says he wrote it? BIG DEAL. No good to anyone, when then find the ZIP IS Corrupt.

  9. I won’t to root xperia arc s..but, I don’t now how to use what super one click version to root my arc s..please help me

  10. I am trying to use SuperOneClick to root my Optimus V.  I enable bugged and unmounted my SD card.  I’m not too familiar with the SDK manager.  Do I simply have to have it open?  Any packages I try to install on it fail.  I have Java SDK installed also.  When I click root, it stops at “Shell root step 3” and never fully finishes?  What am I doing wrong?  I feel like I am not following the steps for “running SDK” correctly.  Thanks.

  23. how to solve this problem
    after this message i rebooted my phone same thing comes again and again

    “Remounting /system with read-write access…
    mount: Operation not permitted
    FAILED”

    • All,

      How did you overcome the following:

      “Remounting /system with read-write access…
      mount: Operation not permitted
      FAILED”

      Thanks

  24. I have followed the instructions and the process stalls on step #6. Any ideas? Up to that point each step seem to complete with the message “ok”

  25. yes, Yes, YES! Finally something that actually works! I wasted 3.5 hours trying to root my Froyo 2.2. Galaxy S (US T-Mobile) with no measure of success at all. I gave up on that crap and spent 45 seconds with Superoneclick and I’m rooted! Its super simple, and it works. Thank You!

  26. I installed it said root and it worked well but later i reset my phone and installed it again after that it says rooting and but not rooting but rebooting and i am unable to delete super user from my phone tell me how to uninstall it.

  27. Rooted Samsung Captivate with Android 2.2. Worked like a charm, once I had the Android drivers and .NET framework installed. The tethering app works fantastic too.

    Once I got all the AT&T bloatware removed, the phone got a lot more responsive and faster.

    Thanks so much, guys. You’re awesome!

  30. Super One Click program keeps saying “not responding” when it gets to waiting for device. I tried it a couple different ways, with and without mounting, ensuring usb debugging was enabled. Not sure what I’m doing wrong. I’m running a Captivate with the leaked 2.2.

    4. When the program starts, check rageagainstthecage exploit
    5. Click Run in Super One Click (do NOT turn the phone on yet)
    6. When Super One Click says “waiting for device”, plug in phone and turn it on
    7. Wait for a while while the phone boots up. Tons of messages will go by. Sometimes it looks like it is hanging. It is not

    Suggestions?

    • Just ran into this problem today, also running the leaked 2.2 for captivate. Got the same exact error, I followed the instructions above exactly, put in into debugger, then plugged it in, then i rooted it through the universal one click, rather than the captivate specific, worked fine. I know you posted this a while ago, but hope it helped anyway

    • i’m having the same problem have you figured anything out about why its doing that becasue ive not been able to find anything out on why its doing it

  40. hello , i rooted my x10i and was work fine but after reinstall my mobile software i try to root again but not work , i run titanium on my mobile but fail to access root .. please somebody help…

  41. I rooted my droid x with this method but i had to extract the zip file on the root of my sd card and run it from my cd card The directions say do not mount SD card but It still worked, I am rooted, but i was wondering what happens if you mount the sd card? Would I still be able to unroot later on? This was the only way to root, it would not let me root my phone without mounting sd card. Can someone plz help?? Plz email me @ alexdiaz973@gmail.com
    Thanks

    • It was a typo. He meant do not unmount SD card, doing so would cut the rooting short, probably crashing your phone and damaging the OS. You can only root with the SD card mounted.

  42. Thanks for the details. I would like to root my Samsung Galaxy i7500. And also like upgrade my current firm ware 1.5 to a better one. Please help me

    • hi i just used this to root my sonyerricsonx10i on android 2.1 on 13/02/2011
      it worked first time with no probs 🙂
      cheers for making this 🙂

    • I can’t get it to work with my x10, it won’t pick up the device, any tips? Can’t find a setting to enable usb debugging.
