RootAdb (needs root)


This app restarts adb with root privileges, you'll get a root shell directly when executing 'adb shell' in a rooted device without having to change the boot image.

Technically it changes ro.secure=0 and ro.debuggable=1, and patches adb to continue to run as root and restarts it.

Changes are lost on reboot, if you want to make them permanent you can do it through the settings menu.

Enjoy :-)

Needs a fix Worked fine and that's why I gave It five stars. But now it's been glitching on both my phone and friends. Says it's running as root but it doesn't work. Other times it says device not supported
