The Android Rooting Tools project is actively maintained. Work on the github repository is seeing ongoing and frequent contributions by several github users, so chances are high that the project will not be abandoned soon.
Its device database currently lists 186 devices, but at this point it's unclear whether this means that there's a working exploit for all of them.
The list of attempted exploits is:
- acdb CVE-2013-2597
- TI OMAP2 hdcp_mmap video driver
- msm_cameraconfig CVE-2013-6123
- put_user CVE-2013-6282
- fb_mem CVE-2013-2596
- libperf swevent CVE-2013-2094
- diag_exploit CVE-2012-4221
