Root That Gingerbread Handset with "Gingerbreak"
For those of you enterprising souls that love to play around with the development side of Android, and are interested in different methods to root your Android device (doing so at your own risk we might add), there is a new method in testing to achieve root on Gingerbread powered devices.
A new app called “Gingerbreak”, created by a dev named “Chainfire“, is a “wrapper around the newly released GingerBreak exploit, which is used to acquire root access on Gingerbread devices”. What is also interesting is that the Gingerbreak APK may work with versions of Froyo and Honeycomb, a development that is in testing now.
You can find the full info by going to the rootzwiki.com page dedicated to the project. Happy rooting!
