Yeah but rooting your phone isn't really ever a problem, it's unlocking the bootloader-if this app does that too then if be most impressed....

Hmm not heard of this app but looks interesting, any body tried it yet?

I am a little suspicious of this.

Tempted... But with 18 months left on my contract, a tad weary...

A good spot without a doubt, but some extensive googling is on the cards first!

Does anyone know if rooting enables the phone to be used with different providers like O2, Vodafone, etc?

Rooting doesnt unlock tge phone to other networks. It simply allows users access to the inner workings of the operating system.

OK - thanks.

Anyone done this? days cannot open file when I try to install it

No, it just gives you root user privileges in the Android OS. To use with different providers you will need to get an unlock code, either from your current provider, or from one of the mobile unlock sites on the web. Plenty of independent mobile phone shops also offer unlock services.

Does it only work on phones, or does it work on tablets as well? Looking to root Sony Xperia S Tablet

I don't think I would risk it. Head over to XDA Developers forum, look up your device and find the instructions to root. I admit it might not be as quick and easy as this claims to be but at least you have some backing from reputable developers, and if it screws up you can ask those guys for help.

SUX, doesn't it.

Reading on XDA they say there it roots even with a locked bootloader.

Now i wonder if I should try it, so close to 4.3 being released on the S3

If you were rooted you could have had 4.3 ages ago with cyanogenmod

I've been tempted. I had is on my Huawei with only a few issues. Should be here soon.

Think I miss about cyanogenmod was the persistent google bar, snug at the top. Not 1/4 on an inch down and only on one page.

Have to use Nova Theme to get that at the moment. Hope that will change.

Google have stopped updates on my galaxy note 1. I'll give it another 6 months and go for cyanogenmod to give my device a fresh new update. Then I'll keep it for another 2 years and pick up a dirt cheap s4 and do the same thing lol. Oh I do love the flexibility of android. Even my old s1 supports 4.3 jellybean!

Thanks a lot OP, worked on my Alps i9300 (chinese copy of samsung S3)
I've finally been able to get rid of all those stupid chinese apps.

I have an unlocked Xperia Z originally from O2, running 4.2.2

Is it worth me rooting and unlocking the bootloader, as I'm not sure exactly what the benefits would be? I'd love to get rid of the O2 splashscreens for a starter!

If the answer is yes, how would I unlock the bootloader and would I need to root first?

Thanks peeps

Yes it is possible, but what you're asking us to do is write a step by step guide which will take absolutely ages.

I did my original Galaxy S 3 years ago following guides on XDA. Sure it took longer but I'm now more familiar with the inner workings and procedures for doing this. Just be sure you have access to recovery / download mode before you start. Just in case you need to reinstall android on your device, it's a breeze.

Thanks, you're right. I'm not sure what to do or whether to do it.

Rooting your phone voids the manufacturers warranty, which for Samsungs is especially useful as there are walk-in repair centres who will fix faults free of charge.

And for what cost? Smartphones can do plenty of awesome things without needing to root your device.

Yeah but for some phones like mine I have had it past the warranty plus I have a crap load of rubbish samsung apps I can't get rid off without root. Cant you unroot your phone as well if u need to go to a drop in place?

You can unroot your device and also there are ways to change the device state so that Samsung wont know you've rooted it.

Some banking apps like Barclays won't run on a rooted device. Stupid, but true.

I don't think I'll bother as I was only hoping to gain the following on my Xperia Z, none of which are that important to me;

1) Remove O2 splashscreen
2) Enable auto airplane mode using tasker/Sony Smart Connect
3) Potentially receive earlier firmware updates

There's only one (removeable) O2 app, and very little Sony bloatware and I'm not fussed about running custom ROMs

How's this different to the already free SuperOneClickRoot program (or whatever the exact name is)?

I'd be interested if anybody has tried this on the T-Mobile Vivacity, I unlocked mine and that was enough trouble. I can't find any comments from users of this software so real experiences would be useful too for any phone. If it works this really hot, I'll wait a while though.

Is useful if in the right hands. I cannot say I would try rooting my phone because I am seeing a massive increase in malware and apps that are exploiting rooted phones and stealing your info and leaving you with malware that's very very hard if not impossible to remove just now. Only root if you know what you are doing and download from trusted people. And as someone said. You cannot use banking apps etc on rooted phones. I wonder why that would be ?

An application must request root access and you get a pop up box asking whether you want to grant it. Simply say no to the dodgy ones.

Besides, if you download apps from illegal sources other then Google play you will get malware and all the other nasty stuff. Its not because you've rooted.

I need root access on my phone so I can connect my ps3 controller and play SNES emulators and also kick ass at shadowgun online haha.

Shame smartphones can't automatically remove Bloatware without rooting though. Funnily enough, Samsung is a prime example of a company that fills its phones with bloatware.

I'm not an Android user, but here is a very good reason to root your phones;

Greenify

About the only effective way to keep on top of the poorly written apps that nail battery life on Android phones.

Most of its 'innovations' are bloatware. That eye tracker technology...what a waste of time. So many other things in Samsung phone menus that are just rubbish.
Vanilla Android is the only way to go IMO. Not that I would buy any Android phone in its current state.

To be honest, I think its actually worth paying for Greenify, as the developers really have put a lot of effort into it...(you get a few extra features over the free version as well):

Don't waste your time with this
Tried it on galaxy s3, does root but can't install a custom rom after that
Got a message saying something like "file signature not authorised" when trying to install cyanogenmod
Knew it would be too good to be true, gonna try the old fashioned way
