What can we do with administration rights?

Get rid of orange bloatware? Make SD card slot work? What else?

Yep, those two things come with root, and a load of other things like titanium backup, etc.

Strictly speaking the current efforts of this thread is all about flashing unsigned images to try and expose a weakness - currently the engineering bootloader looks a good bet as that'll lead on to being able to flash other things.

Hey I'm one of those 20 odd people watching this thread waiting for a root solution to surface. And if it does and we have smooth ICS in the next few weeks then I'm buying the San Diego whatever happens, I'll show my friends what this is made of. I'm hoping it will outdo the SG II as well!!!
