G2 Rooted, Sorta

Another day, another rooted device. Yes, you read correctly, the T-Mobile G2 has been rooted. But, before you go running to your local T-Mobile store to pick up a G2 and root it, we should point out that for now, this method doesn’t allow permanent root access. Meaning, that once the phone reboots, you lose your root privileges.

So, it’s not that groundbreaking or major news, but it’s good to see how quickly the G2 was rooted. Surely, the method will be changed so that permanent root access is attainable. Patience is the strongest virtue. We’re not sure if this will make up for those hardware issues or not, but we’ll leave that one up to you. If you want instructions on how to root your G2, check them out on XDA.

    After the Slide I was concerned about this as well, I kind of wanted to pre-order it but I decided to wait until it was confirmed as rootable and romable before I purchased.

    Rooting the G2 is like a woman with perfect boobs getting breast implants, its not neccessary. when i had my G1 it was needed, because it was limited physically, the G2 has no such limitations..

  9. Its a drawback of G2 rooting that once the phone reboots, we lose our root privileges,Is any alternate is possible so please share…
