With the absolutely beautiful ADB exploit , titled rageagainstthecage (ratc), absolute ALL devices can be rooted. This is because it exploit is ADB which all devices use. There is an issue though. Some devices have a NAND lock which does not allow you to write to the /system mount. Because of this, you can't copy su, sqlite or busybox to /system/bin. This creates some issues but there is a work around. For things that don't need access to /system (like enabling non-market apps) I can use the ratc exploit to make those changes. If your device cannot use su in /system/bin then you can simple select a checkbox (as of v1.5) that says to use ratc.
There are 3 levels of "root" we can define:
- Level 1: Shell Root (with ratc rooting the adb shell but no /system write access)
- Level 2: Temporary Root (/system/bin/su installed but lost on reboot)
- Level 3: Full Root (/system/bin/su installed and sticks)
The following phones can use unrevoked to remove this lock:
- Sprint EVO 4G (HTC Supersonic)
- Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
- HTC Desire GSM
- HTC Desire CDMA (HTC BravoC)
- HTC Aria
- Droid Eris (HTC DesireC)
- HTC Wildfire (HTC Buzz)
