Developer Unstable Apps just released their latest update to their 'Easy Root' application yesterday. Though, just as soon as it went up, Google quickly yanked it off the Android Market. The latest 'Easy Root' update (1.2.2), allowed owners running Froyo on the Motorola Droid, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Milestone to easily root their phones by a single touch of a button.
We got in contact of the developer of Easy Root, as we're trying to get to the bottom of why the application was pulled from the Market. That's what we do. He was kind enough to give us a statement. You can read it, as well as see a walkthrough video of the app after the break. [AndroidPhonesBlog via AndroidSPIN]
Update: The developer of Easy Root has again contacted us, this time with news that the application is once again live and available for download from his site HERE. Want some even better news? Emails are already going out to those that purchased from the Market with a new product key and download instruction. Our own Jared has already received his. It's really nice to see this level of support for a $0.99 application. Keep doing what you do Nathan!
And here's the statement from the developer of Easy Root:
Thanks Nathan, and we're staying on top of this, too. We'll keep everyone up to date on the future of the Market version of Easy Root, as well as the availability of a non-Market version.
Nathan has also told us that he will be creating keys for everyone who purchased Easy Root from the Market, and will be emailing them out when he finishes up the non-Market version. Kudos to you sir!
