Do Everything with SuperOneClick for Android
XDA member CLShortFuse recently released a one stop shot kind of application to free your Android device from its chains. The app can do everything that you will ever need for several Android devices including root (partial or full depending on the device), will allow non-market apps to be installed, and even unroot your device if you ever need to take it in for warranty service or returns.
