Default 1 Click root app on the market

Steven58's edit: This is no longer a valid thread or app for current Droid X users. The apps will only work with legacy versions of gingerbread and/or.




Update: z4root is now available here and is a better option than visionary for us since it is geared toward all phones and not just the G2.


No need for a computer anymore

Visionary

Its made by Paul OBrien of Modaco for the G2 and has a bunch of options for rerooting on boot and that type of thing but just ignore those options. It works fine on the DX. I tried it the other day when I had to sbf.


Update:Visionary was pulled from the market but you can find it here

19/Nov r14: VISIONary + one click root - Android @ MoDaCo

Thank you very much, OMJ. This will be helpful to a great deal of folks, especially newbies, who want to experience root for the first time. Convenient for those of who want root sans PC or MAC. Thanks for posting this. +1

So... how long is this supposed to take? I clicked root now and got the yellow sign icon saying "rooting device, please wait..." The red circle was spinning in the corner while it was going, now it has stopped frozen and the sign is still there. It's been a few minutes now...

I'm so greatful for this app! Just before I saw this thread I checked my text messages. Well it seems I'd missed a text yesterday that said that everyone who got it and forwarded it to 10 of their friends would win the lottery, but if you ignored it your whole family would die!!! So I hurrried up, double rooted my phone, traveled back in time and sent that text out to 10 of my friends...... whew!

Now my family is safe from getting slaughtered, and I'm sitting at home just waiting on my lottery ticket to come up a winner. Thanks OMJ!

Great app! I tried it myself after playing around with things.

Now if they can just include an auto deodexer in the same click....we can be even that much more lazier *wink wink*

I do kinda wish someone who's done it would answer me about how long it takes, does it take 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30, what? It either freezes on me or keeps working for over 15 minutes and I have to quit the app.

So if rooting gives you 'super-user' access, does double rooting give you 'super-duper-user' access? Or 'super-incredible-user' access?

An easy way is to open a terminal emulator and type SU and press enter.

The super user icon looks like a ninja and it should be in your app drawer.

Figures...I JUST computer rooted 3 days ago haha...whatever though since it was easy that way as well.

Best way to check root is either Terminal Emulator and type SU, hit enter and a # symbol will pop up. Or you can install any of the following and if they work, you are rooted:

wireless tether for root users
Root Explorer
adfree
widgetlocker
terminal emulator

Okay so I have never rooted my phone and I am now thinking about rooting with this "one click" option. What happens after I delete the standard apps that verizon pushes to my phone and then I want to unroot? do those standard apps just come back as normal and how do you even unroot?

I forgot it is the pirate now, it is still a ninja when it asks for su rights.

Edit: wow, I'm completely oblivious, the accept screen is a skull and x-bones too. lol

2 stupid questions:
1. can you download the app and NOT run it?
2. if it doesn't work, does it brick your phone?
what are the downsides, if any.........okay, that's three stupid questions, but I went to college in Indiana, so I can get away with it.

I think I can answer some of these, since I went through exactly these thoughts last night as I was rooting my phone with this:

1. yes
2. No, at least not for me. It did freeze my phone three times - once I had to pull the battery, and the phone was fine when I rebooted. The other two times it ran for over 15 minutes with nothing happening. I just backed out and was able to run it again. The fourth time I tried, it worked in about 10 minutes.

It is apparently a temporary root, so your phone will be unrooted if you turn it off and reboot it. I'm waiting on an answer to see if that means I can install a custom ROM or not since it needs to be rooted to boot with a custom ROM I assume.

When you double root, you get a Pimp named Slickback in a Purple suit.

Its actually not a temporary root. This app was made for the G2 which at this point can only be temporarily rooted. When I used it, I was still rooted when I rebooted.

If you want to install a custom rom download the DX Bootstrap app from the market or get it from koush's website My Brain Hurts

Awesome, thank you! I guess all the info online was for the G2 which it was originally designed for and everywhere I looked said it was temporary. In that case, full steam ahead on the ROMs...

Hell me too. Lets take Chuck, Jack, Bruce, Mel, Tina, and a Quadruple Rooted X, stick them all in the Thunderdome, and see which one comes out.
