    If you've been anxiously awaiting for the day that a Google TV device had been rooted then wait no longer. A team of developers from the GTVhacker.com Wiki have done just that. The only downside is that the hack is rather involved and requires hardware modifications and some solder work. How exactly did they do it? Well, have a read:

    I understand the benefits to rooting my phone but what are the benefits of rooting the revue? I have been very seriously toying with the idea of buying one so I am just curious what this would do for me. I certainly wouldn't do it this way but if it were to be some sort of software to do this, maybe so.

    lol to the Required Tools

    - Soldering Iron
    - USB->TTL or similar board/setup (An Arduino in tristate mode works great)
    - 4 wires to attach board to TTL board
    - Terminal program (Minicom for Linux or Putty for Windows) A USB Drive (At least 1gb, 2+gb Recommended)

    I don't think I'm going to be trying this on my Revue anytime soon (See also: Never). Hoping a software mod comes out once the app store opens and development gets serious. That is, if rooting even has any real benefit on GTV (hulu hack anyone?)
