You know we love Android particularly the level of customizability it provides right from the word go even without doing any rooting stuff. Although, the hardware limitations or flaws that stem from the device manufacturers is another story. However, lately these Android phones are getting crazy powerful as there seems to be a real battle going-on currently to bring the most powerful Android phone on the market.

But the question one may ask is that when you DO own such a powerful small little device why not go for the ultimate flexibility – why not root it? Particularly, if you are a geek you will love the level of flexibility or customization that can be achieved afterwards. But for many of us the thing that come in to mind from rooting of Android phones is… complicated CLI scripts, messing around with the configuration files and other kinds of “black-magic”. Right? But wait – things have changed so much these days that in this day & age you no longer need to be a geek to root or hack your Android phone. I am talking about a fantastic little software called SuperOneClick that allows to hack your Android phone with the click of a button. And impressive part is it supports most of the Android phones out there!! While, most of the incompatible Android phones seems to be from HTC.

Currently this tool is available for the Windows platform as well as many Linux flavors. Note that on Windows you will need to Install Microsoft .NET v.2 runtime to run it.
