    not sure why you think its unstable?

    and as far as it goes, you can scan through all of the os of the phone via adb shell find a vulnerability, make it into a repeatable exploit and gain root escalation then by all means, take the easy way out, or flash a pre-rooted odin tar that takes all of about 5 mins.

    as far as a one click, no and dont expect one.. there are no root exploits that work on this device, ergo your force to either find one yourself or use what was given to ya :)

    well i looked at the thread that you posted about the odin pre rooted tar...and people are saying they are having problems...bricking etc...but i have a question.. if that samsung attain was rooted, then why cant we root our phones a different way? because it says it was a samsung galaxy attain that had been rooted...ok so how did that rom get rooted in the first place? and how do go about doing that?

    they arent bricking, they formatted their devices, until i can get a clean dump of ALL the partitions i cant do anything for em. i had posted warnings of re-partitioning :/.

    that attain was rooted via an exploit, put simply an exploit that isnt going to go public any time soon. everytime an exploit gets released a few things happen, programs like superoneclick grab them (which then everyone doesnt understand why superoneclick doesnt work and not the exploit.... but the big thing is then samsung/lg/htc all learn about this exploit and patch it (sometimes scarily quickly). and then an ota happens.. and guess whta now people are back clamouring for an one click root and a new exploit, and the process keeps repeating until there are no more exploits to be found.

    so yes one of the ones we know of works on your phone, rather than getting mad that we dont publicly release it. be glad that we used it to root one phone and since you have an open bootloader because you bought a samsung it means you will NEVER be blocked from root again. when some big name phones come along like the droid 4 exploits get released, but for a midrange phone on metropcs... sorry its not worth losing possible future phones rootablity because you want a one click.

    so again back to what i said :) if you want a root exploit find one, or use teh pre-rooted tar ;)

    P.S. regardless if/when updates roll out for this phone youll root and then be forced to use cwm/odin to re-root anyways ;P

    Well said shabby.

    On that note, there really is no reason for a one click root. Not when we have Odin. It doesn't tax the brain too hard to figure out how to do this, especially when its written out quite clearly on how to do it. You won't mess your device up if you just follow shabby's instructions.

    Rather than worry about an easier method, be glad these guys got us root at all. They don't even have our phone, they didn't have to do it for us. They would still sleep at night either way.
