One-Click Root for Froyo-running Captivates Emerges
Posted October 10, 2010 at 06:00 am by Ben Elliott
A couple of months ago, we announced that an XDA member had managed to create a very useful utility for the AT&T Captivate – a member of the Samsung Galaxy S family.
However, this rooting method would not work for newer software based on Android 2.2 – also known as Froyo.
This week, a new rooting method has emerged which does support such software. XDA member CLShortFuse has created the RageAgainstTheCage GUI – a one-click root which not only works on Froyo Captivates but many recent Android devices, including the Nexus One, the Motorola Droid and the other Samsung Galaxy variants.
If you would like to try the new rooting method and to try the RageAgainstTheCage GUI out for yourself, download it from the project thread.
