Rejoice! The brainiacs over at XDA have done it again, and have cracked the daunting Nandroid protection that has been hindering our developers of total control since the beginning. The method - which provides “total root” - could be kind of complicated if you’re not comfortable playing around with ADB, but other than that it’s relatively painless. Basically, it will allow us to write to /system and any other partitions from within Android, and not having to do it from a recovery which makes things much more convenient. As we expect there were plenty of all-nighters being pulled last, make sure you make a backup as this process will definitely wipe all your data. [via XDA]
