[How To] Root Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread devices with GingerBreak APK

XDA Senior Moderator Chainfire has released a GingerBreak apk file that helps you to get you root access on your phones running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Actually, Android Exploid Crew developed GingerBreak Exploit and this apk is made on this exploit.

As per developer, the apk can work on some Honeycomb and Froyo versions also.

* Root Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

Here, we are presenting the instructions to root your devices updated to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread.

How to root Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread smartphones with Gingerbreak

1. Download Gingerbreak.apk from below link (link at bottom of post). Comment here if you are unable to download it. We will email the file to you.

2. Extract the zip file and save on your computer’s desktop.

3. Connect the phone to your computer.

4. Mount SD card as flash drive.

5. Copy the downloaded Gingerbread apk file to SD card root.

6. You should have any File Manager (e.g., Astro File Manager) on your phone. If not, download from Market.

7. Disconnect your phone from computer and launch File Manager.

8. Follow the onscreen instructions on File Manager to install APK to your phone from SD card root.

9. After installation completes, open the APK.

10. Press ‘root’ button.

11. The APK exploit will run for some time. Usually it runs for around 10 minutes. Your phone will be rebooted. (Note that If it stucks and takes more than 10 minutes, reboot your device).

12. Your device is now rooted. Congrats πŸ™‚

13. Make sure that SuperUser app is installed.

14. This is an Optional Step. You now don’t need GingerBreak on your smartphone. You can uninstall it if you want.

Please note that the apk is still in progress and you can experience some bugs with this as it’s just the second version of apk and likely need some modifications. The developer fixed some of the reported issues in first version but still it can be erroneous.

The users who have tried this method confirm it to working on Nexus One, Nexus S, LG Vortex, Sony Ericsson Arc, Galaxy S II etc. But do it at your own risk. We won’t be responsible for any damage to your devices.

      • Thanks a lot Atul ,

        I am pretty new in Android. trying to do something on my own.. Because my market options are really limited in Android. so if I can make root my device I think I can change operator with market enabler then I can find what ever I want in market.android.com After your explanation in web site I could not find gingerbreak so I searched on my own and I found Ver.1.00 and it gives message when you run up “could not extract assets” error messages appeared.

        But with Ver.1.20 now while I am writing to you my android still trying to be rooten :)) I hope it works. Even with Visonary+R14 it did not work so I am a bit suspicious now :)) Anyway we will progress step by step, day by day πŸ™‚

        Thaks a lot.

    I’d love to root my HTC Desire HD Gingerbread 2.3.3. Tried Gingerbreak and Visionary+ and dind’t succeed even temproot with either.

    Thanks in advance.

    • @AI : Mailed the apk to you πŸ™‚

      • Thanks for the Apk.

        I have however succeeded to root my DHD in the meantime using Windows 7 instead of Windows XP SP3 which ran as a VirtualBox guest OS on top of Slackware Linux x64. I used the binaries from the Gingerbreak_v2.zip that I found on a web site somewhere.

        So, if anyone has trouble rooting their DHD running software version 2.26.x.x, try rooting from Windows 7 instead.

    • Could you teach me on how you root your device? Thanks

      • @David : You can please follow the above tutorial.

        • It is not functioning. I already follow the above tutorial, but it stucked at the rooting step… After restart still the same, when i type su in Terminal Emulator, it write “Permission Denied”

  40. Can u email me file please can not find at bottom of post u

  41. Hi Atul!

    Can you please mail me the link to download gingerbreak.apk. Also how do I know what android version my EVO has? and what to do so i can use it a as a hotspot…?

    Thank you!


    • @JONATHON :
      1. sent Gingerbread.apk to your emailId
      2. For Knowing Version your phone has, press Menu key. Go to ‘Settings’. scroll down to see ‘About Phone’. Look for the ‘Android version’ line. You will see there the version.
      For some mobiles, you might want to go into ‘Software Information’, but there also make usre you see ‘Android Version’ listed there.
      It should be something like 2.x……

  42. I could not find the link in the post, Pls email

  43. WHERE the file? please send me in my email.my email is nothing

  44. VZW Droid X (Verizon refurbished,”certified replacement” phone came with following installed)

    Android ver.: 2.3.3
    System Ver.: 4.5.596.MB810.Verizon.en.us
    Baseband Ver.: BP_C-01.09.12P
    QGD748!IL931NXDROID09 #1
    BUILD#: 4.5.1_57_DX5-26

    Tried GingerBreak 1.02 ( downloaded from other site )

    Launches, but sits at “acquiring root access” indefinitely until phone is manually shut off by pulling out battery out.

    can you send me your latest version of GingerBreak? and any suggestions?


    • @ShanDroyd : sent the latest Gingerbreak apk to you………..

    • thanks, but already tried this version. while attempting root, program sits there indefinitely without rooting. rebooted, tried numerous times. same problem. thanks anyway

      • Has anyone successfully rooted a Droid X running Stock OTA 2.3.3 ?

        • The OTA 2.3.3 is not the problem. u can definatly root this phone without flashing. the problem is the System version .340 which is 2.2.1 FROYO can be and .595 which is 2.3.3 Gingerbread can as well But if u have .596 which is a minor update which prevents rooting than it will not work. u will have to flash back to 2.2 then root using z4root then install DX bootstrapper then download a file called dxgbrooted.zip then install during ur recovery u can find tutorials on youtube. but u will have to wipe ur phone losing all data. you will keep whats on ur sd card and ur contacts are tied to ur google account

  45. Can you send me the latest Gingerbreak for me? I would like to root my sony neo for 2.3.3, thanks a lot

  234. sorry …i’m from Malaysia
    1st touch on Android devices …
    can you email me the APK link to download ?? thanks

  235. Atul, after copying GingerBreak to my Fasacinate, opening Astro, and finding it on the sd card, I can’t figure out how to actually get it installed. I can find no “install” button/feature in Astro. Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks!

    • @jfblodi – After opening the Astro, click on the file –> Click ‘Open App Manager’ –> Click ‘Install’

      • It’s installed Atul, but won’t launch. Says: “ERROR, Could not extract assets!” Guess it won’t work on Fascinate…

        • jfblodi: Can u please try below commands and see if it works for you
          Connect the mobile to pc in debugging mode
          Say u have adb installed in c:
          Open command prompt and type commands as below:
          adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/*
          adb shell rmdir /data/local/tmp
          adb shell mkdir /data/local/tmp

          Then install apk again and Root it as per process described in our tutorial.

          • Atul, (sorry I’m such a N00B) when I do that, it says: “‘C:\ADB’ is not recognized as an integral or external command, operable program or batch file.” GingerBreak downloaded to C:\Users\(me)\Downloads, and then I extracted it with WinRar. What am I doing wrong?

          • @jfblodi – no issues πŸ™‚ . Please type starting from adb. By mentioning C:\ADb> , what I meant is that you go into that directory. I have anyways edited my previous commands. Please comment for any further issues.

          • Dude, no matter what combination I try, it says the same thing as before (not recognized as an internal…). Perhaps you can just tell me exactly what to type in the command prompt after it comes up as “C:\Users|John>”?

          • @jfblodi – Please if you could let me know if you have adb installed and its path is set on your computer. If it is, type the commands starting from word ‘adb’ one by one and pressing Enter after each command
            ex: adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/*
