Powerful and straightforward utility that enables you to easily root your Android-powered smartphone or tablet with minimal effort
One of the main disadvantages of rooting is that it will void the manufacturer's warranty. However, z4root also includes an unroot option that allows you to restore your device to the way it was.
z4root works by changing the root binaries, so the process should be completely safe. In case something goes wrong, you can revert your device to its initial state by simply rebooting it.
Using z4root is fairly simple: enable USB debugging on your device, download the APK, transfer the file from your computer to your Android smartphone via USB and run it with your favorite file manager. If USB debugging is disabled, the app will open the system settings page where you can enable it.
z4root provides two root options: temporary and permanent. As the name suggests, the former option only grants temporarily root access, so your device will become unrooted again after a reboot. The main advantage of this option is that it should work with 99% of the Android devices on the market.
Even though it is more convenient, the downside of the permanent option is that it works on a lesser range of devices. For example, HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD, HTC Magic, HTC Evo, HTC G2, Archos 70, T-Mobile myTouch 3G, HTC Wildfire, HTC Droid Incredible and other NAND locked devices are incompatible.
