Logitech Revue Rooted!

Well, we knew it would happen sooner or later. The Logitech Revue has been rooted. I’m going to stop right there and give you a more than fair warning. This isn’t for the faint of heart, as you can see from the picture above. It’s not as simple as booting into a recovery image. You have to solder a set of leads to the mainboard and then use a terminal program to connect it to the box. If you think you might mess up with this, turn back now. If you think you’ve got what it takes, give it a shot. No word on who exactly rooted the Revue using this method, but it looks like someone will be collecting that $1,000 bounty in the near future. Props to the hackers that pulled this off. So are you going to root your Revue? Think it’s fine without root? Let us know in the comments. We look forward to your feedback!
