Engadget is reporting this morning that the AndIRC team that has had some experience exposing the Thunderbolts locked bootloader and creating the root process has also identified the same lockout code in the Incredible S (which for us here in the States is probably going …
Been considering an Atrix 4G, but worried that, given Motorola’s track record of locking down its handsets, it might be a while before it’s rooted? Well that worry is out the window: Moto’s new dual-core superphone has been rooted before it has even seen official release by AT&T.

Team Douche strikes again! Yesterday, a post on cyanogenmod.com announced the roll out of the infamous nightly builds, which are all based upon the newest version of the mod, Cyanogenmod 7 (CM7).
Last week I came across a great ROM for Motorola Droid 1 (a.k.a. “OG Droid”) tucked away in Droid Forums: Project Elite v4. Now, I usually flash the major ROM developers’ work (Cyanogen, Bugless Beast, Chevy and the others on ROM Manger) because of their history, and pass up the new guys because of fear of abundant force closes and buggy performance.
Well, I’m glad I took a chance on this one.

The first Google TV device was launched exactly a month ago, but still nothing has happened around the rooting thing. Someone was really tired of the limitations of the platform and decided to give a $1000 bounty to the first person who roots and installs third-party apps on the Google TV. Since it’s running Android, it seems to be quite easy at the first glance, but it isn’t.
HTC has released the source code for the G2, MyTouch 4G and the Verizon Droid Incredible today in their Developer Center. The developing community will probably be very happy with those, making a good and stable root possible much easier. Please note: The source of the G2 is not meant for the Desire Z. The G2 is running stock Froyo, while the Desire Z is creamed with HTC Sense.
Ok I know this is an Android site.You may not like the “i” products. I myself shudder when I hear “iPhone”… like fingernails on a chalk board. Yet there is still hope for Android’s biggest competitor. With the help of a little program called Bootlace …
