Download GingerBreak App Easy Rooting for Gingerbread

If you want get the most out of your phone it should Rooted to be able to install apps those require root access. Here we go with GingerBreak App, an easy solution for Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Rooting. Based on The exploit (“GingerBreak”) made by The Android Exploid Crew xda member Chainfire, GingerBreak App which will run the exploit, remount /system read/write, install su binaries and SuperUser.apk all for you. The reak App tested on Gingerbread (2.3.3) but might also run on Froyo and Honeycomb. First download GingerBreak Apk from the link and follow the instructions below.

Some important things to know:
– You must have USB debugging enabled on your device
– You need to have an SD card (formatted and) inserted – if it doesn’t work, try formatting the SD card in your computer, or switching it with a different (or old, etc) SD card
– The APK must be installed to device, NOT SD card
– The exploit may take a while to run, but not more than 10 minutes, if it does, get me a logcat, and reboot the device. In rare occasions, even if the device does not reboot, you may still have root. So check that out after you manually pull battery after 15 minutes or so of being stuck.
– Always reboot between root attempts!

Installation
– Optional: Press the Thanks button below this post
– Make sure USB debugging is enabled
– Make sure you have an SD card (formatted and) inserted
– Get the APK on the phone somehow, and install it
– Open the APK, press the root button
– Wait a few minutes. If there are no problems, the device will reboot (note that the reboot itself can take like 10 minutes due to cache wipe)
– Make sure the Superuser app is install and working
– Optional: Install BusyBox from Market (I personally prefer the stericsson installer)
– Optional: Uninstall GingerBreak, you don’t need it on your phone anymore

As always remember we are not responsible for anything bad happen when doing any modifications, rooting, flashes or anything of that sort with your android phone. Be sure to hit the source link and read all the info before you jump in the business.

This is still very new and a basic release so keep your eye on this page for future update. The APK may be updated to a newer version, this does not necessarily mean the exploit has changed. For more info on rooting Gingerbread OS with Gingerbreak apk head over to original xda thread at source.

    Hope that helps!

    • Zach Geiger

      I will confirm that as well. LG Optimus V 2.2 rooted easily with gingerbreak :) flashed Clockworkmod Recovery and did a NAND flash, messed with a couple of CFW’s, and finally came to a happy ending with I.H.O (Inferior Human Organs) Cyanogenmod v7 PURITY, with absolutely NO flaws, its based off of gingerbread 2.3.5, amazing :P I cant remember the dev’s name, but many, many thanks to him for this awesomely flawless upgrade that Virgin Mobile so cold heartedly did NOT give to us

    • Anonymous

      No it doesn’t – Anti-Viruses pull up the Gingerbreak APK because it’s nature of using an exploit to gain root access to your phone (which is EXACTLY what you want to do)

      Anti-Viruses will pull this up as a “False Positive” – This is not harmful at all.
