A handful of modders over at ModMyMoto have announced they’ve been able to get root access for the Motorola Cliq. As is the case with nearly all rootings, the process is rather involved. Don’t forget kids, there’s always the risk of bricking your phone if you take things into your own hand.
The Motoblur UI that’s loaded on the Cliq is built off of Android 1.5 so there are plenty of newer, fancier ROMs to flash. How long until we see video of a Cliq running Android 2.1? Any guesses?
