Paul "Modaco" O'Brien has rooted the upcoming HTC One S, less than a week after doing the same for the big daddy HTC One X. Of course the HTC One S isn't actually available in any market just yet, but Android fans can rest easy knowing that they can do so the minute they get the phone in their hot little hands. The superboot method favored by O'Brien is in full effect, but HTC will need to unlock the bootloader first. There shouldn't be any problem with that, considering their recent developer-friendly stance.
HTC One X received root and superboot before release, courtesy of Modaco. He had done the same thing with the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus. We later heard that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6 is to be announced tomorrow. It was thought the the Note 10.1 would headline the event, but the unveiling of an 11.6" Tab would be a great surprise indeed.
HTC One X, this can happen even faster, and indeed that seems to be the case. Noted ROM developer and general modder Paul "Modaco" O'Brien has already released a superboot package for the HTC One X.
Paul O'Brien has whipped up a custom kernel for some of our international Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners that will now support keyboard, USB drive, and mouse bluetooth peripheral devices. The kernel is modded, but still very much based on the stock kernel source with a few of the dev's "touches" here and there.
Galaxy Nexus to hit the shelves. Is it just me or does the days seem to be dragging on for when we can finally enjoy the Nexus? Anyways, for now you can enjoy a full system dump with the boot and recovery images, as well as the full system image. All thanks to Paul at MoDaCo.com.
ModaCo has been busy with the new dual core device from LG. He has already done plenty on this phone but recently he has announced and shown pictures for a few exciting things. One being that Paul himself said the phone is a developer dream device. It is not locked down, and messed up like phones have been lately from both Motorola, and HTC. It is open, and free just like it should be and as Android was intended.
encouraged by Android and Google, should be done with caution as it could wreck your whole device. Have fun below!
