    Can't wait until morning!! Need.....Droid....please! Anyway, I'm new to the android OS scene but technology is what I do for a living so I'm sure I'll catch up on it. Rooting??? Does that mean getting admin access at the command prompt of the OS? Sorry but I'm a newb at it.

    Yeah MotoDroid, Rooting basically (as I understand it, haven't done it yet, and probably won't) gives you super user privelages so you can turn things on and off and modify things you wouldn't usually have access to.

    Thanks, Trip! I take it that other Android devices can be and have been rooted then. What are some advantages to this? Is it comparable to "jailbreaking" on a crapple iPhone?

    The primary purpose for rooting a phone is to have access to features that are supposed to be blocked or obfuscated (like tethering).

    The reason most people root on Android is so they can run custom programs like themes or OS updates that haven't been officially released.... or even operating systems for other android devices.

    It is similar to jailbreaking, except that jailbreaking is usually done specifically to break the SIM carrier lock, or to pilfer paid apps from the app store. Getting root on Android won't do either of those things for you.

    That's cool. I don't condone ripping off apps from developers, but I do like to experiment and customize etc. Sounds like this will be fun. Is there any chance that we won't be able to root the Droid? I'll stay tuned.

    Rooting gives you access as the "root" user like you would on any linux system.

    It allows for extremely customizeable ROM's and other options. My G1 is currently rooted and I am running a totally custom ROM with my apps stored on my SD card and other kernel enhancements that wouldn't be possible without the phone being rooted.

    To obtain "root" or "super user" permissions on any linux based system (android) you're giving yourself the equivalent access of administrator access on a Windows computer. By having root/superuser(SU) access, you can then have access to and modify whatever files you want in the android system stack.

    This opens the doors to a limitless amount of possibilities that would otherwise be locked in your stock Droid build.

    Extreme levels of customization can be added.

    ---
    On another note, you guys should really try to stay on point when on this forum. So far, this is turning out to be quite the zoo. No offense to anyone! Just saying, if we're going to make development on this phone as fast and as efficient as possible, you're going to want these "root" threads for "rooting" while you can use whatever general threads to discuss android/droid

    just my two cents!

    administrators/moderators -- goodluck!

    Rooting the Droid

    Hey guys, we have come up with some decent ideas for rooting the Droid at:

    AllDroid.org - View topic - Possible Droid Exploit for Root

    We have also started a wiki at

    Droid-Devs

    We are seeking people with an interest and/or knowledge to help us out. We are also currently trying to raise funds to pay for a Droid to tear apart to help with the rooting effort. Feel free to visit and help us out. Please don't ask if we are done yet, the Wiki page will be very clear on when and how we do root the Droid!

    Happy hacking!

    I don't know if this will help anyone but here is a quick review of some of the hidden features.

    From the phone dial keypad

    *#*#INFO#*#*

    ##PROGRAM (SPA CODE = 000000)

    Power on Options

    Android Recovery Mode

    Hold X while powering on, once alert screen shows hold the volume up key then click the camera button. Use the D pad to navigate.

    Bootloader

    Hold the up portion of the D pad while powering on.

    Safe Mode

    Hold down the center or left D pad button for 30 seconds while powering on

    Moto Phone Portal Download

    I downloaded this app and it give you access to your phone's data over IP by going to any browser on a computer within the LAN and typing in your IP.

    Enables Port 8080 over WiFi. Using NMAP port 8080 shows open with the following version info:

    I also executed the following ssh command from terminal using a mac;

    ssh -p 8080 192.168.1.134

    It did not refuse the connection, posted, but did not provide anything further. I started scanning other ports manually without success. I think this may be a start for someone else who knows ssh but I am stuck.
