Well, sort of- rooted but only temporarily. Our dear friends at XDA Developers have been able to get root access to the T-Mobile G2 smartphone … until you reboot the device – then all super user access permissions are reverted. Not quite the ideal scenario we are looking for but it tells us that a permanent solution is near.
Getting root access allows you to have full control of your phone, making it possible on do things the standard Android devices can’t do. It’s like giving it superhero-like abilities. A few perks that come with root include the ability to flash third-party or custom ROMs, apply themes, tether and more.
Temporary root access can still get you what you want but with some extra effort. If interested in giving your G2 some temporarily awesomeness then follow the XDA thread by clicking HERE. In the meantime, standby for a permanent solution.
