    UPDATE: We have received several reports from users who tried this that it does not work. If someone figures out a way to get this to work, please post in the thread. In the mean-time, we will call this one a "dud." :(

    Here's proof positive that the developers in the Android community are the best in the world. One of the devs over at XDA, Bin4ry, just developed a new universal root method that is specifically for Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices. Supposedly, his root method should be compatibile with nearly all devices that can run stock versions of these two versions of Android. Here's a quote from his thread, followed by some downloads and instructions,

    Make sure you hit up the source link below for more detailed instructions (and for any updates), but here's a quick summary with a download link below,

    Instructions:
    • Download file and extract it from here: Download
    • Double click the RunMe.bat and follow instructions

    Let us know what you think in the thread!

    All we need now is for them to crack the bootloader on the RAZR/MAXX/HD.

    Was checking out youtube today; if you get the chance you might want to a do a new vid with that super easy Galaxy S3 root method that came out two or so weeks ago that just uses the bat file.

    Since AT&T is GSM, I have a feeling it might not work on theirs.
