Chalk up another victory for Paul O'Brien. Seems like he has the HTC Desire cracked, with su and the superuser app written into the system partition. This is huge considering that the
Desire shipped with new and in Paul's words "rather sneaky" protection methods to prevent
data being written to the system partition.
As you can see from his latest tweet above, he should have something ready for the general
public tomorrow. And have a look HERE to see just how good the superuser application looks in the Desire's app drawer. Nothing has been said officially, but I'll bet a MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Desire will soon come down the pike as well, and the Legend's a real possibility, too. We love your work Paul!
Come on, manufacturers, there's no need to lock these phones up so tightly. It's evident that
Android users and developers will do what is necessary to open the software, so just give us
the choice (as was done with the Nexus One already) and be done with it!
