Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

SuperOneClick Updated to 2.2–Now Features ZergRush Exploit!
SuperOneClick is a wonderful tool. With its help, millions of users (no embellishment—take a quick look at the download history) have been able to gain root access on hundreds of devices. In fact, only a few short weeks ago, we wrote about how it was used to crack open the newly released Amazon Kindle Fire.
Since SuperOneClick has been around for a while, you may be wondering why this update is worthy of front page news. Rather than a major feature set or UI change, it has undergone a significant revamp under the hood thanks to the incorporation of the ZergRush Exploit used in Revolutionary.

Here’s a one-click root with almost all phones and all android versions. (including the i9000, Droid, Nexus One, etc)
YOU CAN ROOT ALMOST ALL ANDROID PHONES!
After reading this, you’re probably itching to get started. A simple download from the application thread and a few clicks is all it takes. However, as with any root modification, be sure to read all the instructions before starting!
