[How to] Root the HTC Inspire...


Tuesday 22nd of May 2012 / android.net
Found this article on LifeHacker ( How to Root the HTC Inspire 4G )HTC Inspire 4G users are lucky enough to have a simple rooting program. With just a few clicks, you should be able to get root access in a snap. To root the Inspire, you'll need the Advanced Ace Hack Kit. After reading all the instructions on that post (they're very persistent about this—I assume because the process can be finicky), download the program and check the manual. Some phones, depending on what version of the HBOOT bootloader they're running, may be wiped during the process, so make sure you don't have anything important on your device. Then, just follow the instructions in the manual. The program itself is dead simple; just pick option 1 at startup and—if you've read the manual and set up all the prerequisites correctly—you should have root access. From there, you can install ROM Manager from the Market, use that to flash ClockworkMod, and then flash any custom ROMs you desire.

[HOW TO] Root the Droid 2 without a computer


Friday 15th of October 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
- How to Root the Droid2 Without a Computer - After many failed attempts at Rooting the Droid2 using several different machines, Windows and Mac alike, I had all but given up. Frustrated, I wished there was a way to root my Android without need of a computer. Looking over the lines of code on XDA, I managed to get it to work using the very device I was trying to hack. FIRST OFF, I am not responsible for any modifications you make to your device. There is a chance that you will mess your device up if you aren't careful. There is also a chance that rooting your device will void your warranty. If something happens to your device, it's not my fault. Now that we have that cleared up, we can get started. REQUIREMENTS: USB Debugging must be enabled for this to work. I know we're not going to be using a computer, but one of the files we are dealing with checks for the availability of USB Debugging, and it is picky about it as well. Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging; just make sure it's checked. You don't have to worry about it afterwards.A file that contains

How to Root the Motorola Atrix - Android Authority


Friday 01st of April 2011 / androidauthority.com
Motorola released this smartphone using Android 2.2. Before we tell you how to root the Atrix, you should know how root access can help you. Root access allows users to remove bloatware, more fully customize a device, use backup tools, and poke around in the internal system. Now, Atrix users will be able to take full control of their devices on launch day. Root privileges will also allow users to enable application sideloading– something AT&T has restricted on their slate of Android devices. Unfortunately, Motorola has still signed the Atrix 4G bootloader. Motorola Atrix can be easily downloaded using the famous one click tool called the SuperOneClick. This tool has become a great tool for rooting Android based devices.The rooting process is very easy. But prior to going for the rooting process, make sure that you have done your research and are ready to take the slight risk involved in such an act. There is always the biggest disadvantage involved of voiding the company warranty.There are certain steps that you would have to take before you start rooting your Motorola

HOW-TO: Root the MetroPCS L9 (LGMS769)


Tuesday 27th of August 2013 / androidforums.com
First off, let me preface this by saying there shouldn't be any difference between the Metro L9 or T-Mo's L9. If you have Metro's version, you can see on the bottom of the box that it actually says TMUS P769. The only difference is varying stock ROMs. Technically, you can use this guide on the T-Mo branded P769, but only if you want to run the Metro V10B version of the stock ROM (4.1.2). I recommend only Metro users follow this guide, but it's your choice.Second, rooting or unlocking this phone is not easy. There's really no way around it. It isn't difficult if you understand the process. Unfortunately, a lot of the rooting/unlocking BL information is spread across many places. I will try my best to condense the information. FWIW, this is how I rooted the phone. I can confirm this method worked for me. The following will only root the phone.USUAL DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES (BRICK, UNWANTED SIDE-EFFECTS). YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
