Well done Paul, fantastic job!

Sorry if these are stupid questions but I am a newbie to Android.

1. Does this mean that the entire phone has been opened up? And custom recoveries / roms / kernels? Will it now act like a Nexus One with an unlocked bootloader?

2. Will there be a way to remove all custom recoveries / roms / kernels, and go completely back to stock (in case of warranty repair)?

I apologise if it is too early to answer these questions or if they are silly.

Thanks

Stewart

"Hmmmm, Desire / Legend system partition is protected in the same way as the Tattoo system partition..."

Recent tweet.


Has the Tattoo been rooted? Can't seem to find any info on it.

Don't know the specifics, just think HTC has increased the level of protection over what they had on Dream/Magic/Hero.

Looks like he has hit a few snags.

HTC are SO trying to spoil our fun with the Legend and Desire. Root = easy. Getting write access to /system, not so much.


From what I can work out, some protection is being done in the radio / baseband...


But that is only my early findings. Datasheets for the QSD8250 and MSM7227 would really help here! :-/


:(

I am sure he will do it, its just a matter of time! :P

All this has been done with the Hero before..
Just give them time and let the Pros do their job ;)

Till then the Desire is a great phone as it is.. just enjoy it!

Just ordered my Desire. Had the option of the X10 or Desire. The X10 does look nicer with a better camera but I don't know when they'll have 2.1 on there and will never have multi touch. I hope this can be rooted soon though! ;)
