An XDA member, alephazin, has released a new application that is capable of rooting all the Exynos and OMAP running Android devices in just a single-click. The application uses a new frodo exploit to gain root access.
According to the developer, the application can successfully root the following Samsung devices -:
- Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch – SPH-D710
- Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100
- Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300
- Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE GT-I9305
- Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE GT-N7105
- AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317
- Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605
- Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus GT-P6210
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000, GT-N8010, GT-N8013, GT-N8020
Until Samsung fixes the exploit, you can successfully use Framaroot to gain root access on your Samsung device. The application also works on OMAP powered devices, but until now, has only been tested on some of the Archos tablets.
Samsung devices have generally been ridiculously easy to root, usually requiring the use of ODIN and a pre-rooted kernel. Sometimes, the method is made even more easier, thanks to some exploit, like the recent security bug that was found in all the Exynos powered devices from Samsung. The exploit allowed users to root their Galaxy device by simply installing and running an APK from XDA. The exploit was patched within a few weeks by Samsung in nearly all the affected devices.
