Have you got a Samsung Exynos based device and you haven’t rooted it yet? A new app from alephzain over at the XDA-Developers forum has made it much easier to root selected devices. Which means you can put away the USB cable and ODIN instructions.
Framaroot offers a one-click solution which promises to make it a lot easier to gain access to those areas of your device normally blocked to the average user.
Why should you root your device? There’s a number of reasons why the average user should, most importantly the ability to totally back up your device and other system maintenance functions that apps like Titanium Backup Pro provide. It also then allows you to install custom ROMs like Jelly Bam, CyanogenMod and AOKP.
Rooting will void the warranty on your device and you don’t have to be a tech-pro to take advantage of the new access but users should take caution when changing anything that may be above their skill level. Like the old rule says ‘if you don’t know what it does, don’t touch it! Google it first’.
Here’s the list of devices the app is compatible with:
- Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch – SPH-D710
- Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100
- Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300
- Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE GT-I9305
- Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE GT-N7105
- AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317
- Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605
- Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100
- Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus GT-P6210
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000, GT-N8010, GT-N8013, GT-N8020
- Archos 101 Gen8
The feedback on the XDA Forum thread is mostly positive with many users enjoying pain free root access. There is word that the exploit in the Exynos processor that this app uses may have been patched in the latest Samsung firmware so let us know if it works for you, in the comments section.
Otherwise get rooted!
