If you are an Android user and a tech savy, you would love rooting and so do I. I have always loved rooting Android devices, flashing custom ROMs and much more. It is fun to play around with your Android device, breaking all the restrictions which the manufacturers impose on your phone. After all, Android is an open source software and that’s the reason why Android developers, modders and hackers are able to develop tools to root your Android device. And yes, all those tools are free, thanks to the Android Community.
Unlock Root is one such tool developed to help you root any Android device. Usually tools are developed to root devices from a particular manufacturer but Unlock Root currently roots 250+ Android devices of various manufacturers including the top ones like HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Acer, ASUS and many more. It currently roots devices running Android 2.1,2.2 and 2.3 only! You can expect an update for Ice Cream Sandwich Support soon.
