One-Click Root/Unroot for Most Galaxy Devices

A few days ago, we featured an article regarding a One-Click Root Software for the Samsung Captivate. Its creator, XDA member TGA_Gunnman has posted an update big enough to deserve a follow up article. This new tool is a multi-device root/unroot service tool that can be used for most versions of the Samsung Galaxy S devices. This list includes:

  • GT-I9000
  • Captivate SHG-I897
  • Vibrant SGH-959
  • GT-I9000M
  • Epic SPH-D700

Also, as an added function you can now unroot the device as easily, by using the One-Touch function as well. The app will be updated as newer devices are released.

Team,

This One-Click Root process will copy over the rooted-update.zip file then reboot your phone. Follow the instructions in the CMD prompt that launches.

You can find more information in the application thread.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
