Froyo Pre-Rooted Update ZIP Available!

Following on from the recent news of Android 2.2. aka Froyo, lucky Google Nexus One owners received an OTA update today!

XDA forum member and Modaco’s Paulobrien was quick off the mark, and has released a pre-rooted update zip for XDA members!

He has re-packed FRF50 i.e. FroYo so that it has no pre-requisites unlike the official release.  This means that users can flash via the usual custom recovery image.  Also included is ChainsDD’s Superuser app, and the radio image.

Paulobrien has promised more goodies next week including a Kitchen, de-odex pack, Superboot and an MCR release.

However, if you are one of the lucky recipients of the official FroYo release, then you can also get root by checking out XDA developer Cyanogen‘s Quick Rooter for stock Fro-Yo systems, which is available in this forum thread.

To download Paulobrien’s Pre-Rooted Update.zip and for more information, visit the forum thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
