T-Mobile myTouch 3G Rooted in First Week

mytouch_rootedIt took all of a week for the crafty boys of xda-developers to gain root access to the T-Mobile myTouch 3G.  The handset joins the G1 and Samsung Galaxy as being able to offer such access to the masses, making Android phones 3 for 3 so far!  The process is a touch more involved than previous rooting, so be prepared for a challenge.

Amon_RA from the XDA-Developers forum was the first we’ve seen to post these instructions, with thanks to Jrbourque and Haykuro. Users will need two SD cards this time around – one for creating a  “Goldcard.”

If you’re the rooting type, head here for the complete walkthrough.

Motorola Working on HD 10-inch Tablet, Packing Ice Cream Sandwich?

It’s that time of the week again, as the rumor mill is in full swing, this time with a new tablet from Motorola that’s sure to turn some heads (if it even exists). A rumor has reached the guys over at SlashGear, and it’s proposing that Moto is working on a new Android tablet, one to truly rival the iPad 2. This device is said to sport a 10-inch HD display, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and the speculation doesn’t end there. The rumored tablet will be running Ice Cream Sandwich, something we haven’t heard much about since Eric Schmidt gave us some details on it.
