    for those non on xda the awesome devs working on the D3 for root. Well sbf found its 222mbs in size and they plan on looking for exploits if anybody can help please jump to xda or start another thread going. Its time to crack this phone open and free our selves of bloatware and poor launcher redraws

    Sweetness. That gets us one step closer. At 222mb that's a full sbf so they should be able to find something.

    end of line...

    This is great news. I'm pretty happy with it non-rooted, but root would make it all that much sweeter.

    haha I don't see why any non dev would even consider flashing a non rooted sbf in order to obtain root. But hey that's just me

    sorry, excited as any1 to get this rooted, but what does the sbf do and/or how does it contribute to finally achieving root?

    Unlike the system dump this will allow the devs to find a real exploit to obtain root.

    Reading the XDA thread, it seems the developers were rather disappointed with the SBF and didn't find anything important.

    yea, seemed to be another dead end. On the bright side though, they say they understand the system a bit better now. I guess any sort of additional info counts as progress
