Instant Root – Root any Android!


New to Android? Don’t know how to root? No problem – try Instant Root. The best part is that it works on almost all Androids. Here’s what to do:

  • Download Instant Root APK from here.
  • Run the APK file.
  • You will get a confirmation message
  • Restart your phone and you are done

This APK exploits a kernel bug to gain root access.

This little APK has been developed by Neil and Theresa over at Androidlib.

Note : once done, you can’t unroot your phone.

Working on : G1, all HTC phones

Not Working On : Sprint Hero with firmware upgrade 1.5

Warning : Rooting your phone allows you to make serious changes to your phone system files. DON’T do it if you don’t know what you’re doing.
