It seems rather out of the ordinary these days if a device isn't rooted before it hits store shelves but that's exactly what happened with the Logitech Revue. Despite many people in the community attempting to gain root access it apparently wasn't willing to go down without a fight -- until now, that is.

Yes, much like every other Android powered device out there the Logitech Revue has finally been rooted. Custom apps can now be installed and full access to all system files has been achieved. Take note though, the process is not for the faint of hear and unless you wanna end up with a expensive paperweight, you'll likely wanna pass on this one. video of it in action is available after the break.

Logitech Revue finally rooted

Yea everything gets hacked eventually.

They even finally cracked the PS3, they got the ROOT key and now custom firmware.

I wanna know if I can get the slingbox app on it. Plug a slingbox HD into my dads cable box (fios) and receive it on my TV with the revue. All I have in my area is at&t and its awful.
