As Whitson Gordon of LifeHacker notes, Universal Androot is capable of rooting numerous Android devices with just a few taps and does not require a PC or "troublesome," complex hacking.
"Whether you're stuck with a phone that requires the long, scary root method or you have a one-click-from-your-PC method available, Universal Androot is the best new way to root your phone," explained Gordon.
"All you need to do is download the app to your phone, install it using the package manager, make sure you have 'Unknown Sources' checked in Settings > Applications, open it up and hit Go Root."
It should also be noted that the utility allows users to execute a Soft Root, which roots the device for only a single session.
And of course, after rooting, users can easily download and install root-specific apps such as Wireless Tether and install customs ROMs with ROM manager.
