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.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
