After hours of trying to figure out a way to make Mast3rpyr0’s batch files work correctly, I noticed it had problems sending certain commands. So I decided to use some of his batch file codes, and create a VB.NET application along with batch files. I have unrooted and rooted my personal phone multiple times trying to get this to work. I tested the app 3times!! Each time Unrooting my phone! All three times its has been successful!
Simple Root is free to download and use, but be aware bad things can happen due to rooting and firware modifying tools. For more details and usage instructions, you should visit the XDA-Developers forums.
