    As far as I know up until today the D3 comes with the Gingerbread OS and is not rootable yet. But of course I'm a little ignorant in regards to what's really available already. I wanna be up to date.

    Can anyone please enlighten me and let me know if and when we can start enjoying these treats?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rocky

    Honeycomb is a Tablet-only OS.

    I did search a little on the forums, but there's sooo much one can read. However I didn't see much related to my question here.

    Just for the record.

    Well from the title of your thread, it seems as if you're asking about honeycomb for D3 right? Honeycomb is only for tablets. And as for root, there isn't much news about it being posted. Maybe the devs are still working hard on the exploit.

    Honeycomb 3.x and Gingerbread 2.3.x are supposed to be merged in the next version 4.0 codename Ice Cream Sandwich. Hopefully this helps some of the fragmentation in Android between tablets and phones. Its supposed to be out in QTR 4 this year.

    woodyman is working on root. At this point there are no exploits to be had for root. The bootloader is locked, and seems to be staying that way for the time being, as motorola has not reupped their position regarding the bootloader.

    Sorry, but I didn't see your first post on this thread. Thanks for the info. I didn't know that.

    Will have to exercise the virtues of patience and hope, I suppose. Thanks, guys.
