New Universal Root for Android ICS, Jelly Bean Devices

Posted by Alan at 9:14 AM on September 17, 2012

The folks over at XDA Developers are a resourceful bunch.  The crew has come up with ways to root and flash almost every Android device, sometimes within hours of it’s release.  They previously rolled out a universal root method for all ICS (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) devices.  Now one of the developers there, who goes by the name Bin4ry, has released a root method that goes one step further by covering both ICS and 4.1 Jelly Bean hardware.

The new release should be compatible with almost every device, but unfortunately there is no list you can check, so you will have to take a bit of a chance when you run it.  Instructions are dead simple to follow and no data will be wiped from your phone or tablet during the process.  With that said, I would still do a backup first if I were you….

Instructions:

1.) Download attached file.
2.) Extract it using 7zip
3.) Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions!

If you decide to take the plunge and try this out then let us know how you made out by posting a comment below and be sure to include what device you were using.
