Has anyone ever heard of Addictivetips.com? They have an article about one click rooting with the Shift, using a tool called Shift Root And Recovery. They claim it was developed by a member over at XDA but they provide no links. I searched XDA and couldn't find anything similar... I haven't tried this, I'm just curious if anyone knows anything about it. It almost sounds too easy to be true. Here's the link to the article



Once again I have NOT tried this I'm simply looking for answers/input


Edit: because of the feedback I removed the link

Thanks for the reply... definitely wasn't going to try unless I got a lot of positive feedback... looked a little fishy to me.

yeah, I would stick with xda, here, etc for that rather than take the chance, the instructions over at xda have been boiled down to a very easy step by step (as well as z4 or visonary) I wouldn't take the chance..

Thanks for the feedback... I'm removing the link, I don't want to be responsible for posting a malicious site.

As for the XDA post...the guy working on this had a program up briefly but wasn't happy with something so he pulled the download link while he continues development...been a week or two since.

I just checked XDA apparently amoamare has finished his update on the one-click and is in the process of uploading it now. Io i will go ahead and Guinea pig this little clicker out and post if it is actually true. Now, I'm off to RUU my shift!

fantastic! i just RUU, then used amoamare's program and it works a charm. unfortunately i will not post any links due to his expressed consent, so head over to XDA forums and search for his thread in the evo shift 4g development area. took literary less than 7 minutes.

NOTE: if you get an error stating adb is not found, open up android sdk, and a cmd window and paste "cd C:\AndroidSDK\platform-tools" into the cmd and then type in "adb shell" after every boot to ensure the device is still being read. good luck.

My micro trend says this site is Malicious. Don't do it, trend suite is pretty reliable.

To be on the fair side, Trend Micro Officescan also identifies the Visionary.apk file in the sticky in this forum as being malicious and blocks the download.

I still wouldn't trust a site that offered a one-click root procedure for your phone.

I didn't realize when I originally posted this thread that there was a link to an XDA forum. I thought it was that particular site that had developed the program. Once I found out it was crediting XDA, this thread was pretty much dead, so I didn't bother to update.

was the whole site malicious or was the download. Most root applications will come up on your antivirus or malware scans as the exploits show up as a trojan.

The site that I mentioned in the original post was just linking to a post over at XDA, I just didn't realize at the time..
