    Hi guys! Just thought I'd show you all something I've been doing.

    I've been trying to build a web-based root for around 2 months now, so that people just need to go to a website and click a button to root their phone or tablet. Technologically, this is possible, and R00tr is kind of the first stage in that process.

    R00tr is web-based, and uses a vulnerability in the Android Browser image-caching system to root the device, but requires desktop-based software to actually send the payload. I am working on making the process fully web-based, though.

    Here, you can see me rooting my Samsung Galaxy Y with R00tr, although I've tested it on 18 models of phone and 3 models of tablet, and the Root is known to work with all versions of Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich, and I'm pretty sure it'll work on Jellybean (if anyone has jellybean and wants to help me test it, please let me know):

    Let me know what you think! Hoping to release this (open source) to the community in a few weeks, once I'm confident it's not going to break anything :p
