SuperOneClick Can Now Root Gingerbread Devices

Posted by techhackz-admin Saturday, May 14, 2011


SuperOneClick is a one click root application for Android devices created by CLShortFuse which makes it very easy to root many different smartphones. Until now SuperOneClick was only supporting Froyo devices but thanks to the Gingerbreak exploit SuperOneClick makes it easy to root Android devices running Gingerbread.

SuperOneClick can virtually root any Android device as we told you back in November: SuperOneClick - One-Click Root for Android devices.

SuperOneClick version 1.9.1 is the new version which brings support for Gingerbread devices, see the changelog below:

Bug fixes!
Should work better now on XP systems and Linux
Automatic driver installation

New folder structure
Major code clean up
Hopefully fixed Linux hangs
Theoretical honeycomb support (still needs testing)
Fixed major bug. Oops!
Installs busybox to /system/xbin and installs syslinks
Added a 30 second timeout check (should eliminate all lock ups)

Falls back to previous mount path method if busybox method fails
Uses psneuter for exploit instead of rageagainstthecage by default (should root Sony Ericsson devices easily now)
