Well ahead of the release date it appears the new Motorola DROID Bionic has already been rooted. Just as a few of us suspected the recent Droid 3 exploit that seems to be working on most newly update to Android 2.3 Motorola devices has also got the job done for the Bionic. I’m sure a few were debating buying the phone for this exact reason so this is good news.

We don’t have much here, but thanks to mydroidworld we now have a screenshot and while it doesn’t show us much, we can clearly see the “targa” (Bionic codename) has achieved root access. This is a good start that is for sure not to mention we may get a one-click-root shortly too.

Like I said, this is a good start and a sign of good things to come but we still don’t know any details regarding the all important bootloader. Most likely it will still be locked like every other Motorola device as of late. With all the progress on devices like the Atrix and the Droid X we should have ways around that for those looking to mod, hack, and enjoy their new Droid Bionic.

Who’s buying one now?

    I am unfortunately stuck with my rooted DX running froyo. I rooted for free mobile wifi and refuse to break down and pay these outrageous data plans when I already pay 105.00 a month for unlimited data through VZW. I dont know how the hell they expect anyone to live within their 2 gig allowance. I can burn that up in a month just updating apps alone. And in one night watching netflix…

      You don’t need to switch data plans if you change phones…
