    New Universal Root Method for 'Most' ICS and Jelly Bean Devices


    UPDATE: We have received several reports from users who tried this that it does not work. If someone figures out a way to get this to work, please post in the thread. In the mean-time, we will call this one a "dud."

    Here's proof positive that the developers in the Android community are the best in the world. One of the devs over at XDA, Bin4ry, just developed a new universal root method that is specifically for Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices. Supposedly, his root method should be compatibile with nearly all devices that can run stock versions of these two versions of Android. Here's a quote from his thread, followed by some downloads and instructions,

    i made a small script which is able to root ICS/JB phones. It uses a remount timing issue in Androids "adb restore" service.
    So normally it should work on nearly all ICS/JB devices, for some it won't but the idea may work in a slightly modded version

    There is a special case for Xperia T and Xperia S,P etc. phones, this phones run ICS but don't have android's native restore with adb, Sony has added a own custom "Backup&Restore" app, the script handles this cases too, just choose the correct option!
    Make sure you hit up the source link below for more detailed instructions (and for any updates), but here's a quick summary with a download link below,

    Instructions:
    • Download file and extract it from here: Download
    • Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions


    Let us know what you think in the thread!

    According to the XDA link, the S3 isn't listed as one that is confirmed to work. I'd be interested if this worked also, especially if there was an unroot option.
