I don’t have the Galaxy phones to test with. I have no idea if it will work and or if it will damage your device. Use at your own risk. If you have success please let me know.
I am almost ready to release the tool. Everything works great on the Kindle Fire. I still need a tester for the Galaxy Nexus.
BreakDroid is a work in progress. My goal is to make a tool for Mac users that will root several different android phones and tablets as well as install the android sdk (adb). It is very important to note that I only made the tools to automate these processes. All the credits for the root exploits and other pieces will be noted when you use them. A special shout out goes to jcase for the kindle root exploit and advice on coding when I had questions.
The tool is in beta and I am looking for people to test it. If you are interested please message me at
