Dan Rosenberg said that the exploit, which he calls "Motofail", should work on Motorola devices running Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Since that encompasses pretty much every Motorola device released in the last six months, it's a major boon to the community.
Indirect has combined a series of hacks to create a root method that launches directly from a MicroSD card, which boots directly into ClockworkMod Recovery.
an industrious modder has done just that, outputting the video from a Galaxy Nexus through a projector and combining it with the Xbox Kinect motion control gadget.

Those of you who have been holding off for an easier method can thank "WugFresh" at GalaxyNexusForum.com, who's developed an easy Windows application that automates every step of the unlock process on Windows.

At least, it didn't until now: one ambitious Android modder has managed to root the tiny touchscreen watch and install third-party apps, making full access to Android possible. The dream of a Dick Tracy watch is within our grasp!
