Default P3Droid has 1 click root done

He made a 1 click root method this morning. Idk how you feel about his "info", but its hard to deny the guy has made big contributions to the Android dev community.

P3Droid: "So I went and made a 1 cli…" « Deck.ly

I'll add the link to the 1 click method once P3Droid releases it. Which I expect will be shortly before/after the Verizon release. Also be warned that the unlock will wipe your device so if you are going to unlock, it is something to keep in mind.


*You will need to fastboot unlock before using the 1 click method.

Yep, someone actually told me in one of the threads that P3Droid wasn't a dev (I referenced the fact that maybe he would bring us some great custom Kernels). I replied with a link to his great Kernels for D1

This has me worried, I was hoping it would be like the Nexus S and not have a one click root method available. One click methods seem to cause a lot more problems than solve them, because then unexperienced users decide to root because it's so easy. Then come all the threads about people bricking devices, getting stuck in bootloops, etc.

Rooting the hard way forces you to learn more about your device, and what you're doing to it.

Eh, i agree to an extent. By even rooting the "hard way", it's still easy for people who don't know what they're doing to follow some instructions and get root access. But i guess at least they can follow instructions so they can avoid messing it up by trying new things? Lol but i also think it helps get new people into the rooting community that just didn't want to bother with more involved methods. then they're hooked.

1-click rooting = cheap gateway drug

Let me start of by saying i haven't looked into it, but I'm pretty sure it was already rooted. He just packaged up the processes in a simple package. Not trying to be negative towards your post, but this is a reason people like to flame him. Somebody will think he's trying to steal credit for another devs discovery. When all he did was make it "consumer ready". I'll check and edit this is necessary; but i just didn't want people thinking he was taking credit for this if he isn't.

Edit: he definitely says that it was the work of others that gained root access. He gave full credit to them and said he just made it a 1 click.

Perfect -- just wanted to inform people so they didn't wipe their phone before having a nandroid or at least Titanium on their device.

Didn't P3Droid say that the unlock would wipe everything off the phone? Music, etc including.

He is definitely arrogant. But that doesn't really bother me. You can tell from a lot of his tweets that he's trying to rub it in everyone's face that he has a galaxy nexus on Verizon. Whether he means to or not, idk. But it comes off that way a lot. "when i got my gn i didn't think it would be another 6 weeks until anyone in the states had one..." But then he follows that up with that he can't wait for everyone on Verizon to get theirs because they'll enjoy them so much.

P3Droid is NOT arrogant.
What you're hearing in some of his tweets/post is not arrogance, but his tiredness in dealing with people that don't want to believe what he's saying or DOING is true.
P3Droid also deals with something I deal with on a day to day basis...
A TON of jealousy and envy.
...H A T E R Z...

He gets attacked day to day, on forums, tweets, and emails.
(Go ahead and ask him, how many people he's had to block on Twitter)

Instead of people commending him on his efforts & contributions,
they choose to attack the guy for whatever hater-isk reason.
Since Haterz don't do anything but HATE, they can't bring the same P3Droid brings to the Android Community Table, so they stay on their job, and he stays on his, by continuously contributing to the Android World...
EVEN though the doubters/haterz continue to try and bring him down with hateful tweets, post, and emails.
That's all a hater is good for...
Hating on a real guy, doing REAL things.
If he ever comes across arrogant, thats just his way of beating down the haterz HE is dealing with in the community.
Its not directed toward any of those that appreciate his work & effort.
P3Droid takes tons of time out of his own personal life to make things happen for this community, and he gives credit due, where/and when its due.
I don't really know how anyone could hate on someone that time and time again, proves himself, A REAL contributor to the Android Community.
The proof is in the pudding folks.
Give him a break.

"Hatred is gained as much by good works/accomplishments as by evil work earns."

HATERZ BR33D on Jealousy & ENVY,
Don't Hate Me, Cuz You Ain't ME!

Does that root? I thought it just unlocked the device. No experience with it though so idk.

And to the rant on "haterz", i agree that he does deal with a lot of negative attitudes. But he does come off as arrogant at times. I like p3 and give him the benefit of the doubt that he's not actually arrogant. Just giving the wrong impression. If he's going to open himself up to the public like has (albeit for selfless reasons like contributing leaks and such) he needs to realize that a lot of people on the internet are going to act like that. Getting bent out of shape over it just makes him look worse. Besides, plenty of other people contribute to the community without having "haterz", there has to be a reason things are different with him?

ok android_life not trying to start a debate, im just stating what i feel, and a few others that i know that see what he writes on twitter, from everything we see and what he types, its all arrogant.

when you tell people you have the gnex and wont give any information on it, besides flaunting that you have it, thats arrogant

i do applaud the fact that he sent 2 gnex's to a few devs, that was a good thing, but to just flaunt it in our face?

and back in october or november, he stated something about the gnex coming in november, and when november was here and the date was approaching, he quickly said he never said anything about it.

if he was right and it came during november, then he would be telling people to sing his praise, somewhere on this board i posted his listings from those dates where he said it was coming, but with no specific date, and then how he claimed that wasnt what he said.

its my personal opinion how i see him and his actions, does he do alot for our community? sure
but with a price. you have to buy his leaks with his app. yeah, so basically if we want the leaked version of a ota, you have to buy his app once and then you can have it. for some reason i dont think that is noble, and his tranquility rom, how many dx users have soft bricked their phone because of that rom?

and the fact he was telling us that his rom was coming to gb for dx, well that has yet to happen, i just dont trust his word, or believe a thing he says, if some people want to, so be it, but eventually you learn.

thats just how i feel, others may feel differently about him, but me i see it how it is in my eyes, and it wont change.

From what I read in the Nexus S forum, "fastboot oem unlock" unlocks the bootloader, and rooting is the act of installing Superuser and the apk. So in a way, "fastboot oem unlock" opens the door to the root of the device, and Superuser holds it open for apps like wireless tether and stuff.

Yep. I'm guessing koush will have a recovery ready to go on release day. So my plan is to fastboot the recovery.img and then flash SU as a zip.
