LG Optimus Rooted

A note to anybody with an Android smartphone: Don't leave it sitting around Paul from MoDaCo, or he's liable to root the thing on principal. Such is the case with the LG Optimus (aka the GT540 -- see our hands-on at Google IO), which he cracked open in what may well be record time. Good on ya, Paul! [@paulobrien]

Appreciate the support for us Inc users :P

Wonder how long it will take to root the i1, for us prepaid folks?

I'm wondering what makes it so hard to root a Incredible? Could it be that Verizon locks them down tighter then other carriers? Maybe those that want to root should stay away from Verizon? Just wondering?

Throwing more support for the Inc! PLEASE!!!!!

The owners of HTC Incredible should feel safe and happy as their phone seems to be the most secure Android phone out there.

We have to understand that rooting a phone is based on utilization of security vulnerabilities.

Another point to bear in mind is that rooting a phone opens even more security holes and makes it even more vulnerable.

The only data protection for the owner of a rooted phone is the lack of interest to their data.

There is no compelling reason to root an Android phone for a security-savvy person.
