One-Touch Root

Note to some HTC Devices: z4root will root your device but you will need to use other methods for S-Off. Note: Z4root sometimes doesn't work right away, reboot your device and try again if you have issues.

Instructions

Requirements: USB Cable, Z4Root (Download), (Alternate Download) file manager from the market or on your tablet and a computer.

Install

  • Connect Device to your computer and enable USB Mass Storage.
  • Place the Z4Root APK (application) in your storage directory of your choice.
  • Go to Settings, Applications and select "Unknown Sources".
  • Properly unmount mass storage.
  • Go to your file manager and select z4root and install.
  • Run the z4root application.

Alternate Method (no file manager required)

  • Install ADB and get it working on your device.
  • type:
     adb install (location to apk) 
  • Run the z4root application.

If all else fails

Motorola 1-Click Root

  • 1-Click Root: Download
  • Install Drivers
  • Enable USB Debugging
  • Put phone in Charge Mode Only
  • Click App; MotorolaOneClickRoot
  • Follow on screen instructions.

Manual Root

Download

  • psneuter: Download
  • Superuser: Download
  • busybox: Download
  • Unzip the downloaded files into the same folder
  • Open a terminal and change to the folder.

You need the android SDK and ADB working. To make sure type:

adb devices

if your device lists, then you are ready to go!

Gain Root

  • Run the following commands:
    adb push psneuter /data/local/temp/psneuter
    adb shell
    chmod 755 /data/local/temp/psneuter
    ./data/local/temp/psneuter
  • ADB should hang, wait a little while and then type:
    adb shell

NOTE: You should have the "#" sign instead of the "$". If you do, you have temporary root, and can continue on.

  • Type:
    exit
    adb push busybox /data/local/temp/busybox
    adb shell
    chmod 755 /data/local/temp/busybox
    ./data/local/temp/busybox mount -o rw,remount /system
  • The last command should return nothing
