The folks at C Skills have done their magic again, this time with Gingerbread (and possibly Honeycomb) and have released GingerBreak. If you don't keep up with this sort of thing, the C Skills team are the people who brought us the rageagainstthecage exploit. Besides having a run-on sentence for a name, this is the trick that can root any device running Froyo. Since it isn't going to work on Gingerbread, the fellas have jumped ahead of the game and found one that will, and are pretty confident that it will crack Honeycomb and Froyo, too.
Now all we need is devices that aren't OEM unlockable to ship with Gingerbread so we can test it.
