Easy Root Pulled from the Market, Still Alive


We recently talked about unlocking the Froyo updated Droid Original using a very simple, very convenient tool: Easy Root.

Unfortunately, UnstableAppsEasy Root app was recently pulled from the Android Market, with no explanation given to the developer.

On their website, the developer said, “Google has suspended Easy Root. I am looking into it. Please be patient.”

After two days of hearing nothing from Google, the developer decided to take things into his own hands and has now officially released the app outside the Market, directly through his website.

For US$0.99 paid via PayPal (which also accepts major credit cards), you can download and install the .apk. After making the purchase you’ll be provided with an key which, when paired with your email address, will unlock the app. It’s not as elegant as buying through the Market, but it’s still quite simple.

Customers who purchased the app through the Market will be contacted via email with instructions on how to convert their Market app over to the new version.

Easy Root currently supports rooting the Droid Original, Droid X, and Milestone.
