    I hear Woody was waiting for your post to announce to the dev community that he has root. Glad you helped spur things along by playing your part in all this

    Last time took months. That's the time frame I'm hoping for. Earlier is gravy.

    But I'm sure the Woodman will do it.

    We are all here for you Woodyman. Hopefully once it hits the stores tomorrow we will get even more users on board and hopefully some additional devs. Root may take a community effort to get it done.

    Hey woody, i was wondering how devs go about trying to get root. I've tried to do some research but the only results i get are explanations of what root is or how to root specific devices. If it's too complicated too explain, then that's cool, but, i'm really interested in the process. Thanks man.

    I had asked Woody the same thing as I was interested in possibly putting my own programming knowledge to work.

    Ultimately, you are looking for a security flaw in the OS to exploit. It is the same thing virus writers do. You are trying to find a "bug" in the OS that makes it for some reason give elevated privileges to processes that were not supposed to have it, ultimately your user processes. Try reading about how specific root exploits work.

    Android Root Source Code: Looking at the C-Skills – Intrepidus Group - Insight

    These security flaws are bad and patched quickly because a person with malicious intent could exploit them for bad reasons. They are good for us though because they allow us to get root on unlocked devices. If bootloaders were not locked we would not need to exploit security holes in the OS to gain root access.

    What baffles me though is how these rooters (and virus writers alike) find these security flaws. I guess with lots of linux and android ROM development experience you know where good places to look are.
