Easy Rooting Method for Droid 2

If you are one of the many people who own a Droid 2 or Droid X, then you know that your phone has an encrypted boot loader, until a developer can crack that you can still have access to SU permissions and can make modifications to your Droid 2 or X.

XDA member darkonion has developed a simple rooting method for the Droid 2. It only requires a few files to download and configure. This should be easy for someone who is comfortable with ADB or has rooted a phone in the past not using a 1 click method. Currently, the method works for Windows / Linux / Mac users and has been tested and successfully run by many XDA Members.

The thread in which it is being developed has been pretty active in the past few days. If you have anything to add or would like to try it out for yourself on your Droid 2, then checkout the thread!

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.
