    I am sorry, but this doesn't really get us anywhere. 8080 is the motorola phone tools web server port, and it doesn't run as root. Thats actually probably why they used 8080 instead of 80, because on Linux by default you can't bind to a non-client port (under 1024) by default as a user. Whats interesting is that they have DAV enabled on their own Motorola web server, but that probably won't get us anywhere. The info you got from nmap only indicates some standard HTTP headers and a 404 response. In other words, you can't ssh into a non-ssh server. You can telnet into it all you like, and run HTTP requests, but probably nothing more.

    Keep up the work though, you got the drive, and thats the hardest part sometimes!

    Interesting... I used the windows telnet client, but it does connect. It won't echo back anything interesting... but it doesn't time out or refuse the connection.. :?


    *EDIT*

    Ok, now it does something different and interesting...

    I don't know much about this, but there's someone who at least claims to have rooted the Droid (AllDroid.org - View topic - Droid rooted)

    We'll have to wait and see.

    Edit: The info comes from Cyangoens Twitter, he seems to think it's real, to yay us!

    Well, I'm still waiting for my Milestone to arrive, so I hope someone here could try it first ;)

    The exploit comes from Zinx, who hangs around in the irc-channel #cyanogenmod, so I would think that this really does work. Now it's up to those feeling adventurous to try it out :)

    HOWTO

    Download the zip file

    URL: http://rapidshare.com/files/318204448/d ... t.zip.html (Down now?)
    URL2: http://www.***********/file/168496608/8 ... -root.html (thanks, blunden)
    URL3: http://www.mediafire.com/?ydaqjmditjh (thanks, blunden)
    URL4: http://www.multiupload.com/XYPZLK4K22


    Rename to "update.zip" and copy to the sdcard

    Power off the DROID and power back on while holding the X key
    When you see a "/!\" symbol, press both vol+ and camera
    Use the onscreen menu to install update.zip

    Once installed you will be able to run "su" from your adb shell.

    ...and if you don't know what the f that means (like me), IMO, leave your Droid alone.
