    A non crippled HDMI out shouldn't be too far away.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Great point!


    It's like all the new threads saying "I want the new xxxxxx but there is a better phone coming out in 4 months.. What should I do?"

    Plus I have faith in all the Hackers/Developers, They have yet to show me otherwise..

    Yes that is true, and also now with root it's possible to start working on the bootloader.

    That was quick, not that I had any doubts, hopefully the donations for Birdman build up, he deserves it

    Anyone mind posting just the "exploid" file for review? I'm at work and can't download the .zip :(

    I'd like to see how it was done :)

    Congrats and good work! :icon_ banana:

    You sir are correct! That's the big gotcha is the bootloader and the encryption as well as the sig. that eFuse checks.

    question, does this now allow us to have wireless tether without having to pay for the 20 verizon fee? i know it allows us to get rid of bloatware or preloaded apps i dont ever use, but i was wondering about the wireless tethering

    When the bootloader is cracked this will be news.

    Someone who had been working very hard on this at Motorola just came in this morning to basically be made to feel worthless even before his morning coffee.

    The only thing is we always knew Root would be possible, the eFuse is the problem and still is. We still can't load custom roms/bootloaders.

    Yes. You can also wireless tether, use MinFree and underclock the device.

    I am excited about this (esp as an X owner), and not to take anything away from the work that was done to get there, but isn't this a copy job of the milestone rooting? I will be impressed when the bootloader is cracked.

    You have to get "wireless tether" from the market.
