Want To Root Something (Anything)? Try DooMLoRD’s Easy Rooting Toolkit

It looks like the advancement of Android can render some of the most popular automatic root methods useless. As a result of that, we all need to look for new and innovative ways to try and keep our devices (and the devices that will come soon) rooted to be able to fully enjoy them. With this in mind, XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD developed a method based on the zergRush exploit by Team Revolution. The dev originally created this method for the Xperia devices, in which it worked quite well. However, some people decided to take it for a spin on other devices such as the SGS2 as well, and much to the dev’s surprise, it worked flawlessly.

Working with this is as easy as one, two, three. The only thing that must be done is to unzip the file and run it in your Windows PC. The computer will prompt you and guide through the entire process, process that is by no means long. To make this even sweeter, the dev has also provided a script to un-root the device if you ever need to get it back to manufacturer’s condition (warranty repairs, etc). Please try it out on other devices if you have any available as it will help grow the list considerably.

Confirmed to be working on the following devices:

  • Sony Xperia X10 (GB firmware)
  • Sony Xperia Arc (.42 firmware)
  • Sony Xperia Arc S
  • Sony Xperia Play [R800i/R800x]
  • Sony Xperia Ray
  • Sony Xperia Neo
  • Sony Xperia Mini
  • Sony Xperia Mini Pro
  • Sony Xperia Pro
  • Sony Xperia Active
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 [GT-9100/GT-9100P]
  • Samsung Galaxy GT5570
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab [P1000] (2.3.3 firmware)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note [N7000]
  • Samsung Nexus S [i9023] (2.3.6)
  • Motorola Milestone 3 [ME863 HK]
  • Motorola XT860
  • Motorola Defy+
  • Nexus One (2.3.6 stock)

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
