UnlockRoot is a well-known name in the Android rooting community. But is UnlockRoot as powerful as it claims to be? Will it actually root your phone or will it turn it into a brick?
UnlockRoot promises to unlock 250 different Android devices from just about every manufacturer. And unlike most other rooting apps (with the exception of One Click Root), UnlockRoot will also ‘unroot’ the device when requested.
How does UnlockRoot work?
Users buy UnlockRoot for $29.99 from the program’s official website. After downloading the program, simply connect an Android smartphone or tablet to the computer, run the program, and UnlockRoot promises to grant root access to the phone in just minutes.
One of the problems with UnlockRoot is that’s it not too innovative. In fact, the rooting process is based entirely off an exploit discovered by Burritoroot. Burritoroot is the exploit used by SuperOneClick, another popular type of Android rooting software. So it doesn’t do anything different than SuperOneClick and other rooting programs.
The biggest problem that the Android community has with UnlockRoot is that its owners tried to pass off the code as their own. It was only after LifeHacker.com wrote an investigate news story about UnlockRoot that people realized most of the apps’s code was stolen. Furthermore, the creators of UnlockRoot sell their software for $29.99, which means the creators are effectively selling another person’s code for their own profit but you don’t have to worry about that because here at Softek we are giving it to you free of charge.
