Thumbs up The Official One-Click Rooting Solution for Droid Thread!!! :D :D LATEST: V2.0.4



LATEST VERSION: 1.8rA Stable or Try 2.06 Beta!!!
Works With Froyo FRG22D too!!


Soup or Root now has a Blog!! http://souproot.wordpress.com/


First off All credit goes to Sebastian Krahmer at C skills. Please see fit to donate via Paypal to 7-4-3-C@web.de

Credit for OMJ's tutorial goes to karnovaran at xda. He changed the directions a little to make them slightly easier and suited for the Droid1.


Hello and welcome to RDKamikaze's official thread to Droid rooting the easy way!! I have been working hard to code for you guys the best one-click root solution for a while and now I'm finished, woot!!

The one-click root (Soup or Root) is the easiest and most user-friendly way to root anyone's Droid, especially since there is virtually no chance to brick your Droid!!! By using the solution given by OMJ on How to Root Without RSD Lite, I was able to base my code around his work and bring to you the easiest and fool-proof way to root your awesome Droid

Steps to Root
1. Install Motorola Drivers!!
2. First the program!! Download Soup or Root v1.8rA!!
3. Turn on USB Debugging on your Droid: Home>Menu>Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging
4. Make sure USB Storage is OFF!! Don't turn on USB Storage when rooting, or else the root won't work!!
5. Connect your phone and then run Soup or Root Enjoy!!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

~ BEFORE DOING ANYTHING: Turn on Debugging on your Droid!!
Home>Menu>Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging

~ Soup or Root v0.6 and v1.8rA require to have the cmd window be in focus, so don't click away while it's working until it closes!!

~ It is recommended if you know how to do a backup to do it!! I'm not responsible for anything that happens to your Droid, but I and fellow forum members will be happy to assist you if you encounter such problems

~ v2.0 BETA USERS: You no longer need to have Motorola Tools previously installed!! The installer will ask if you have it installed or not, and if not, it will install for you!!


If you enjoy my work and would love to do so (no pressure), please !! Thanks for your appreciation!!

I love one-click root solutions - it is the way of the future and way to go

But, and I am not knocking your efforts here 1 bit, but this looks like +7 steps to me. I think when people read or think of one-click root solutions, they are thinking of something like Easy Root that really is/was point and click and done. That's what I think and why I clicked to read.

hope it works for people out there though...

UPDATE.. now it is pretty close to 1 click rooting as you can get the dev actively works daily to improve this app. nice.

That's why there are going to be future releases, hence the version This one is more the enthusiast's version or those who have the tools already (since it's the tools you need and steps for getting them in the earlier steps).

I've already got plans to have an offline program (actual program, not vbs) and an online program (goes online and downloads/installs tools) that are a full-out one click solution as you state. Don't worry, the idea is there but I want to make sure interest matches so I don't waste my time coding

cool... and BTW, I do not think there is any lack of interest in a true one-click root solution. just look at Easy Root.. 50-250k downloads! this IS what people want and opens it up to the every day Joe who thinks the old school method is scary and just to much to deal with. which IMHO, it is.

You are for sure on the right track. What you have here is something I feel comfortable trying. Could you tell me what apps I should download so I can make the most of the rooting. Thanks again for all your work on this.

Thanks for the support guys, I'll get right on it!

EDIT: Just saw your post Seven Dogs, we're posting at the same time The apps I recomend are SetCPU (for over/underclocking), BB Toolkit (must flash a BBTK ROM, free), ROM Manager (helps with ROM installs/backups/flashing), and Lunar Lander (always a fun past-time ).

Didn't you have a not-so-easy time with EasyRoot though? I remember you lost recovery over and over. I think RSD Lite is just much cleaner. The fact that we have the tool is great; it's the actual tool that Motorola uses to flash the Droid, and we should be exploiting that. Honestly, RSD Lite is practically one-click as it is: install RSD Lite on your computer, plug your phone in, direct RSD Lite to the rooted SBF, and hit Start.

I have the first version, first try I got a bunch of errors, went into the vbs file properties and shutoff some system protections ( Win7 64 bit ),
ran it again, see no errors but I am back to the
C:\android-sdk-windows\tools> prompt

Do I just type exit to close the cli and I'm done?

yes I did, but not sure of your point?

(1) I didn't dog the OP - I appreciate it and said as much and think he is on the right track, but not there yet
(2) it isn't really a 1 click tool at this time
(3) though the old school method surely works, I think it archaic and dated and a true 1 click - like Easy Root - is the way rooting should go. so the end goal of the OP and my points are on the same page.
(4) people are already trying this and coming back with follow up questions.. which just means, as of this time, it is not a 1 click root tool as a 1 click root tool is just that with no process questions and clarifications needed. point and click.
(5) I do my darnedess to now help others based on that experience I had, but 1 hope is the creation of another truly 1 click root tool to make it easy on everyone

Well, I don't notice any difference on my phone so I don't think it worked, will wait until the later version is up, have to go out for a while.
On the plus side, the phone still works.

New version link is up and working properly this time!! Check OP for the link or just click here:

Soup or Root v0.8.zip

When I get home from my girlfriend's apartment sometime today, I'll have the one-click everything (except setting USB debugging, that YOU have to do no way I know around it).

RDKamikaze and OMJ thanks so much! I finally got my root on I've flashed ROMs before, waaay back on my Tilt, so I'm usually good following instructions. But for some reason I was having some serious issues, maybe I've lost too many brain cells since then, but this worked great. Thanks again and I'll be hitting the donate link BTW I used 0.6 version which worked great using windows XP.

Now it truly is a one-click stop for all your rooting needs!! Still limited to Windows computers, however. Just turn on USB Debugging on your Droid and then run the program!!

*Better versions in the future are still coming out guys, be sure to check back often!!*

impressive you moved so quick on this.

you are getting even closer.. it will be great if the final goal would/could be an apk so no PC or Mac required. just download, run, and your rooted. I am going to try to get this working tonight on a buddies Droid who wants root, but not the old school way. Now, I just need to try find a PC as who the hell uses PCeees

Who uses a Mac? IMHO they're useless, but that's a topic for another thread. Let's not start a flame war here lol!!

I'm in the process of learning java so I can make an apk!! I just need to know how I would implement this on the Droid's own system, I don't imagine it being much different. But fear not, I'm one step ahead of you!!

I'm down a couple quarts of sweat, but UD 8 is running.

I used the .6 version and it did work, the later ones are probably even better.


Thanks again to all that lead me through it.

Check my post right above yours, have you installed the Motorola Drivers yet? If not, get it here:

Did you install the motorola drivers? If not, do so as I forgot to do that and am working on another version already :-p

If you did, then try downloading the file again. I changed it about 20 minutes ago, but kept the version number.

Give me a second, I'm downloading and trying too.

EDIT: Worked like a charm for me. Can you send me a screenshot? PM me so we don't clutter this thread Or if you're on Google Talk, PM me your email and I'll add you.

but of course

and we also rebooted his phone, but no root. tried to use ROM Manager to confirm, it says no root & no Superuser found.

command prompt opened, ran like your video, but gave that final error and never closed.
