Motorola Devour

Not to be outdone by it's larger cousins, the Motorola Devour has been rooted.  Using some bits and pieces from the Droid X root method, some files scoured from the web, and some good old fashioned determination, Android Central forums user bitswitch has a fairly simple method to get your Devour into the hacking game.

To be sure, this voids warranties, takes a bit of technical know-how, and probably makes puppies cry in some Verizon executive's backyard, but if you're rocking the Devour, give it a look.  [Android Central forums] Thanks bitswitch!

I still think this phone looks like a Fisher Price plastic toy.

The phone actually had a really solid build to it. If it had more support and more horsepower it could have been a contender.

I agree, it was pretty solid when I tried it. Its a shame, like you said, that it didn't get the support its Droid cousins got.

yea, its solid. i own it and it seems to work very well for my needs so far...i suppose time will tell

Larger cousins? What the hell is bigger then that beastly thing LOL

The devour was made to take the punishment of a school kid. It wasn't supposed to be a major player I mean hell what kind of parent would drop the money a high end phone costs on a kid anyway. I know I wouldn't but my boys are rocking the high end Fisher price Elmo phones so who knows its hard to say no to the little guys.

Yaawwwwn.... people who got this phone probably dont even know what android is....

I like the Devour, its a shame it was such a low end device. I don't understand why more of our higher end Android devices are plasticky chrome, and this low end Devour was made out of aluminum. I don't necessarily want a metal phone, because I know first hand the radio reception issues that can be caused by it.. aluminum macbooks, iphone4.. anywho, I love the device design of the Devour, its a unique phone that wasn't a standard slider or slate device.

I had the devour and the rebooting and signal issues were too much for me. Verizon gave me a Droid after 4 Devours in less than 2 weeks.

Great concept...just needed that extra push. Glad to see that it finally got rooted.
