AnJaRoot stands for Android Java Root, and it's just that - a replacement for
the previous generation of supersuer access on Android. The days of calling su
to execute scripts in a limited environment are over, developers are now able
to perform previously restricted actions directly from Java!
This is the main AnJaRoot app which needs to be installed on a device. You may
either install this app and follow the install procedure (via recovery) or you
can directly flash/sideload it from recovery (needed for HTC devices) by
downloading the lastest version from http://www.anjaroot.net/
ANJAROOT IS NOW 100% COMPATIBLE WITH THE XPOSED FRAMEWORK!
- Supports Android >=2.3 (Gingerbread, API level 9) on arm, x86 and mips
- Developers have a nice and robust library to utilize AnJaRoot to unlock the
full potential of their ideas.
- Simple to install: Install via app or directly flash/sideload the
update.zip (which is useable on all supported systems) from
- Developers don't need to write hard to debug Shellscripts in order to issue
commands as root, it was never easier to make use of superuser permissions.
- Simple management UX for users
- It's fully open source - AnJaRoot itself is GPLv3 licensed while the
Library is published under the Apache License.
- Android 4.x multi user support
- Full replacement for the previous SuperUser tools
- Major UX overhaul (more options and a real design)
- Support for custom ROM integration
- Compatibility with the XPosed Framework
If you want to support the development of AnJaRoot in the future you can buy
the AnJaRoot Donate app on the Play Store. It may (but unlikely) get special,
donaters only, features in the future. I you don't want or can't spend money
on AnJaRoot you may also contribute to the project by submitting patches.
All parts of AnJaRoot are licensed under popular opensource licenses. The main
"AnJaRoot" app, the "AnJaRoot Tester" and "AnJaRoot Donate" are licensed under
the GPLv3 to keep any modifications of the source open for the community. The
"AnJaRoot Library" is licensed under the Apache License to enable people to
develop closed source software. If you make any change to the library I would
higly appreciate it if you would send your change upstream as a patch to
support the community, same applies for the other AnJaRoot components.

AnJaRoot now supports a 'system installation' (directly from Android without support from a recovery system).
AnJaRoot is now 100% Xposed compatible!
As there is no Updater (currently), users which have 1.0.0 installed have to reinstall to get Xposed compatibility. To do so, please download the latest update.zip from www.anjaroot.net.
