And another new phone falls to the genius of the Android hacking community. You'll recognize the names -- eugene373, Paul O'Brien, and Koushik Dutta. These guys used the fake OTA method that was devised for the HTC Droid Incredible to crack the MyTouch3G Slide wide open, add the necessary files, and write a custom recovery to the phone. This makes it wide open and ready for ROMs and Metamorphing and all the other goodness that comes with root. Eugene373 has worked up a clear set of instructions, and all the tools and files needed are at the source link.
