android root legal

If you thought it was hard to keep track of all the ways to root your Android device, you might remember the Universal Androot program which allowed one-click rooting of certain Android phones. While the list of supported devices was pretty thin back then, the program is now ready for prime time and has hit the Market with support for many phones, even devices that sport Android 2.2 Froyo, 2.1 Éclair, 1.6 Donut, and even phones on the ancient 1.5 Cupcake. The bad news is that there are still some devices such as the HTC EVO 4G running the FRG22D firmware that are left out of the party. If you’ve been looking for an easy way to root your device, you might want to check out the list of supported phones and firmware versions. That being said, do bear in mind that your carrier probably won’t be too happy if you bring a bricked phone from a botched root attempt in for help.
