    [WARN]Gingersnap (along with all other Android modifications) is experimental software and while I have made this as safe as possible, differences in operating environments and natural disasters can cause your device to become unusable. Please make sure you understand this important fact before downloading.

    Disclaimer: Neither myself, Android Central or any other member of Android Central are responsible for any disasters that occur as a result of any hack or modification you perform on your device. Your use of this application is at your own risk![/WARN]


    With that out of the way, I'd like to introduce you to the Gingersnap Root Utility. Gingersnap is a one-click root utility, much like SuperOneClick or Universal Androot.

    The nitty gritty: Gingersnap uses a modified version of the famous GingerBreak exploit to automatically root your Android-powered device and installs the necessary files to maintain a permanent root status.

    Pre-use Requirements:
    1) You need the .NET 4 Framework. Not the Client Profile, the full .NET 4 Framework.
    2) For some reason you need the Visual C++ 2008 redistributable installed. Don't ask me why.
    3) You need proper drivers for the your phone. Your video card doesn't work without drivers and neither will your phone.
    4) Before running this Utility please make sure your phone is in debugging mode

    Instructions:
    • Download and unzip Gingersnap-V1.2.zip to anyplace on your computer
    • Connect your phone to computer in debugging mode
    • Open Gingersnap-V1.2 folder
    • Double click Gingersnap applications icon
    • press GO , sit back and relax

    Think you're ready? The file is attached to this post.

    I needed a post to see the files.

    [WARN]I do not own a Mac so i am not the best person to ask questions about set up but post questions and i will have people that know much more than me about Mac devices to help answer them.[/WARN]



    It's extremely important that you download the necessary files to the proper place.
    Download the following file to your Macintosh HD root folder: android-sdk-mac_x86DSC.zip (includes all other files needed)
    Open Finder - on your Mac - and double click the "android-sdk-mac_x86.zip" in your Macintosh HD root folder to extract.

    FYI -- Regarding Mac Disk Errors:

    At various points -- throughout this procedure -- your Mac may display a disk error message like the one below. You can safely click Ignore when you see "The disk you have ejected was not readable by this computer" and click OK when you see "This disk was not ejected properly."


    Do the following on your phone:

    1. If your phone is plugged into your Mac unplug it now.
    2. Then hit the menu capacitive button > settings > applications > development > check USB debugging > then click Ok.
    3. Plug the phone into your computer (you will leave it plugged in for the duration of this procedure).


    Opening Terminal on the Mac:

    1. Open applications > go to utilities > then open terminal.
    2. Enlarge the terminal window for easier viewing.
    3. Syntax notes:
      • You do not type the $ before any of the commands below. The $ represents the command prompt and is shown for illustration purposes only.
      • To avoid errors, for more complex commands, I recommended copying from this post to the terminal. All you need to do is 1) select the line in this window 2) hit command-c and then 3) hit command-v in terminal to paste it.
      • You DO need to type the period in front of each command. For example: the period here: ./adb devices is part of the command. It will not work without it. If you copy and paste lines, as I recommend, it is important to get the period during the selection.
      • Unless otherwise specified, you should never see an error after entering a command. If you did, double-check that you just entered the correct thing.
      • For the more curious, I will give you a complete rundown of what each command does in post #2.
      • Please do not PM me If something doesn't work right, please select, copy, and paste the last several lines of your terminal session into a new post in this thread.





    Enter or copy/paste the following ./adb (without the $) lines into terminal:
    Code:
    $ cd ..
    $ cd ..
    $ cd and*
    $ cd tools
    $ ./adb devices
    [note] Terminal should return a result that displays your device (the name will vary from the one shown). If it doesn't show as attached, you will not be able to continue.
    [/note]

    Code:
    $ ./adb push su /data/local/su
    $ ./adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/Superuser.apk
    $ ./adb push GingerBreak /data/local/GingerBreak
    $ ./adb push com.sh /data/local/com.sh
    $ ./adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/su
    $ ./adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/GingerBreak
    $ ./adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/com.sh
    $ ./adb shell
    The adb shell command will not put you in the phones internal command terminal. This is represented with "$" prompt. You will now execute the GingerBreak exploit. This make take serveral minutes.

    Code:
    /data/local/GingerBreak
    After entering the above command Gingerbreak will do its thing. A successful exploit will end with this,"[!] dance forever my only one"
    If it ends in anything else or if it hangs for more than 5 minutes pull your battery and attempt to root again.
    After exploit is complete you will have a command prompt that looks like this "#". That represents root access. You will now excute shell script then reboot your phone.


    Code:
    /data/local/com.sh
    exit
    exit
    $ ./adb reboot
    Your phone will now reboot. Congrats Enjoy your rooted device
    [TIP]check app drawer to see if superuser app is installed,if it is you are rooted[/TIP]
    this is great. thanks.
