Just because the phone isn’t wildly popular or isn’t on a major carrier, that doesn’t mean a nice development community can’t stand behind it. Even if that development “community” consists of one person (with the help of a few supporters, of course), it has one and they care enough to go through the trouble of finding out how to root the device. That device would be the Cincinnati Bell Blaze that released to overwhelming demand (by their standards) not too long ago.
The job was done by SeanFromIT and allows full root on the device to make way for custom recovery images and ROMs. In the meantime, be sure to try it for yourself if you want in anticipation of an Android 2.1 (or better!) ROM that could come down the line eventually.
