Motorola hardware but have been holding out on their recent line of smartphones we have some good news for you. The new and impressive line of RAZR phones, and the AT&T Motorola Atrix HD have all been rooted. Good news right? Now we just need those bootloaders unlocked. More details available below.
XDA. This tablet packs a serious punch, especially when compared to other tablets for children on the market. Sadly, in spite of its beastly power, it lacked access to Google Play and the other Google Apps we all rely on in daily life. Thanks to XDA, that issue is resolved. The Nabi 2 packs a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0. That is some serious power in a rugged tablet designed to support the lifestyle of young people. This root now makes it a serious tablet that can do almost anything. Once the relatively easy simple root process is completed, users have a couple of options. They can choose to leave the default Monarch UI, which is made for children or they can get the standard Ice Cream Sandwich experience. This is done by simply deleting the /system/vendor folder from the device. As always, be careful rooting your devices, as it is possible to screw the process up and be left with an expensive paper weight. Make sure you have adb installed and have a basic working knowledge of it before attempting to root your Nabi 2. Follow the steps laid out on XDA, and you should have Google Apps installed quickly and easily. [timeline] [via Android Police]
few new Android smartphones headed to market soon. One in particular is their new Motorola Atrix HD. Which will be a 4G LTE device for AT&T. Just like every other Motorola phone as of late, it will feature a signed and locked bootloader where users and developers can't control a thing. Motorola confirmed this on Twitter, as well as something else we've heard before.
Galaxy S III smartphone is starting to slowly reach the hands of consumers this past week, with pre-order shipments finally arriving for a lucky few. Today we have some good news in the form of a stock firmware image of Verizon's model. This means all you hackers can go to town and feel safe knowing you can easily get back to stock.
much-delayed HTC EVO 4G LTE, in all its acronymical glory, has root capabilities. You can send your thank-you notes to XDA Developers member ZedonMax, who posted the exploit first and also provided these pretty pictures.
Galaxy S III hasn't even hit the shelves yet and it's already been rooted. Thanks to the awesome and well known XDA Developer Chainfire we now have full access before the phone is even commercially available. The only issue with achieving root is the fact he doesn't have the device in-hand for testing, but the process should remain the same come release day.
Samsung Galaxy S III, would-be king of smartphones and not due to release in any market for a week and a half, has already been rooted. Noted XDA member Chainfire posted the steps that he took to root a stock Galaxy S III - without saying exactly how he got his hands on it. The process was achieved remotely.
Google Wallet's security, there's a new wrinkle to report. The latest update is specifically for the HTC EVO 4G LTE (which won't be released any time soon - thanks, Apple!) and a small bug fix. But why is the application suddenly asking for root access? Rooted users found that when they restarted the app after the update it asked Superuser for root permissions.
