Motorola Charm is Rooted

motorola charm

Strike the Motorola Charm off the “To Be Rooted” list, because the deed has been done. Sure, the handset might be left feeling used and vulnerable, but isn’t that the same for everyone’s first time? XDA is home to the people responsible who deployed an updated Universal Androot hack to achieve Superuser access. This root method doesn’t unlock your bootloader and no custom ROMs are available for the Charm just yet, but we suspect that should not be the case in due time.

Grab the instructions over at the source link if you are feeling froggy.

    Please, why is the big optimism with the locked bootloader ? Seriously, all what the guys did with Droid X & other new Moto phones with locked bootloader is what the Milestone guys reached months ago. What gives you so much optimism ? If you will have solution for custom ROMs with custom kernels within 1 year, you can be happy. But chance for that is ~5%.
