CyanogenMod 7 was just released tonight, you can read about that here. It has just reached the "stable" milestone so that basically means it is rock solid. For those that are worried about the AT&T-Mobile merger and what phone to get, or are wondering what Android is right for me. I have a clear choice for you, the LG G2x!
root method for the newly popular HTC Thunderbolt . The original root method was very long, and pretty difficult. Probably for advanced users only. I know I've seen many reports on twitter that people didn't want to get into all that and were waiting for a 1-Click root, or easyroot. Well today I have that, here is Easyroot.
full system dump was only the start of things; Motorola's ATRIX 4G isn't on shelves yet, but the smartphone has apparently already been rooted. The handiwork of developer DesignGears, the full instructions - like the AT&T smartphone itself - haven't been released yet, but it should come as a relief to those concerned Motorola's policy toward locking down root access on its Android phones. That policy has seen some Motorola devices take longer to be hacked and modified for custom ROMs than Android phones from rivals like HTC, frustrating owners used to being able to tweak their handsets and coax out new functionality. Given that the ATRIX 4G also offers support for the innovative Laptop Dock accessory, and runs a new Tegra 2 processor, the potential for hacking and modding the phone is perhaps even greater.

SlashApps of course, then noting the fact that although the app said that all users attempting to utilize the app would have to be rooted in order to have it work, it worked for all of our non-rooted phones just fine. Now we've got a bit of a dilemma. There's a brand new version that not only takes screenshots, it captures screen video as well, recording your every move in video form. That's not the problem though, the problem is that we've had many conflicting reports in the forums of it either working or NOT working on non-rooted phones.
(see those posts here,) I thought she was an OK reader, but she had a lot of potential that was going to waste. Sure enough not 2 days after I sent the NC back through the mail (I was only borrowing it, after all,) we get news that it's been ROOTED. From there, it was a fantasyland of apps, workarounds, ROMs, everything you could want. Except for one thing. Noone had overclocked it, not even a little bit. Well that's changed, and it's changed today.
rooted the NOOKcolor? Remember how basic it was and all they really had on there was Angry Birds (what else do you need?) Well now there's something even BETTER - complete access to the Android Marketplace! Hooray! Get to downloading!
