Root your Droid

If you want to root your Android phone for any reason, and there really are some good ones, you no longer need to fiddle around with complicated how-tos risking to brick your device.

The new app Z4root from RyanZA, available in the Android market, does exactly this with one click. The app contains just one button that will essentially do everything for you.

If you want to do even more, like applying a speed-fix to your device, the One Click Lag Fix also from RyanZA does exactly this plus can also root your device. Tried this on my Samsung Galaxy S (JP0, official Froyo) and it is now running like the road runner! There was only one problem, the description says the fix works with APP2SD activated, but it did not for me! So I temporarily moved all apps back to the phone memory, applied the patch and later moved them back on the SD-card. The phone works like a charme now, really the difference is amazing.

Confirmed to work on:

  • Droid X
  • Droid 2
  • HTC Hero
  • HTC Eris
  • Galaxy S devices
  • Galaxy Tab
  • Original DROID

Doesn’t work on:

  • Motorola Milestone
  • HTC Desire
  • Nexus One
  • HTC Incredible
  • Samsung Epic 4G

If you run into any problems, the full support thread is over at XDA
