    Default z4root root app????

    I have noticed on a number of forums that z4root works on many of the Android devices and on the market a number of users reported that this root and unroot method also works on the Droid X but I was wondering if anyone with a Droid X used this app from the market and if it worked correctly.. I seen on Samsung and HTC areas its been working.

    Does any one that tried it care to shine some light of this app? I would love to try it but if it has been verified as a waste of time I wont bother... Im rooted now with 1.2.3 method from xda but I like to experiment with other methods as well..

    ANY INFORMATION BE APPRECIATED.... THANK YOU

    Sounds like this one is developing a very good track record, appreciate the feed back..

    UPDATE:
    I am another that can verify that it roots and unroots Droid X perfectly...

    Thanks Again..

    It doesn't work on the EVO. Both the app description and the developers page are very clear that it doesn't work on NAND locked devices like the EVO.

    The app states that it doesn't work for EVO... It originally reported D2 / DX..

    What about the aria? Temp root worked but I've tried a few times on permanent root and it doesn't seem to be working... ?

    I think all Htc phones are NAND locked & the app description says it will only temporarily root those devices. I think there are other 1 click root methods for them...unrEVOked, maybe, or something like that.

    You can still use this though and will only lose root when you reboot, which may not be that often.

    I'm rooted using the terminal emulator. Can I use this app to unroot as well? Or is this unroot process exclusive to only the people that used this app to root?

    Can this be used on a droid Eris? I have a few Eris devices that NEED rooting. Looking for the easiest method possible

    What the crap is a Eris... j/k. Easy way to find out. If not on a list of phones to work on then just try. You got a few right? It may not work being an older os. I would say no. You can pull the apk file from your phone and install on the eris and see. I would just check around the net and find a way made for the eris. Might not be a easy on click but you will get to learn something.

    Lol. What the crap? Good one. I have more and more family that I'm converting to Androidians. For what they're gonna use the device for,the eris was good enough. I played with it and damn... Gramma was slow but she was old. They like what I'm able to do with my X and what I've done to my wife's Dinc. Both Eris devices are running on 2.1, so let's just hope that this app will do the one click root for me/them. I'm gonna give it a shot and I'll report back to this thread when my results are reached. Won't be soon though. This fam lives out of town. Thanks for the feedback TNT

    I was thinking about using this just to see if it would work on my dx since others says it worked for them.I have downloaded and saved the apk to a backup already so dont have to worry if it gets gone off the market like easyroot did.

    Why does it have temporary and permenant root selections tho ? I mean if you want to unroot then why even have the temporary part ,lol.

    After I root I guess then my next thing would be to find another "rom" to use if I wanted to .

    Or I could just be rooted for wireless tether and screen shot apps ,

    If I root with this and unroot I guess I would still get the "ota update"( that hopefully get released by christmas) to froyo
