HTC Jetstream has been rooted!

The incredibly well known and super successful (and possibly super handsome…we don’t know for sure) XDA Recognized Developer DoomLoRD has finally brought that sweet, sweet root goodness to those who have long awaited it on the HTC Jetstream.

The root process is simple enough. Simply download DooMLoRD’s Easy Rooting Toolkit, place it in the root directory of your computer and press play. Here’s the basic instructions as he puts them:

then download the v02 toolkit for JetStream files and extract contents in root directory of ur pc (e.g: c:\ OR d:\)
then just connect device (with my insecure kernel on it) and activate USB debugging…
then execute RUNME.bat
thats it ;)
ur device should now be permanently rooted after reboot…

So there you have it. It’s easier than most one-click root methods out there, but as with any root method it could cause serious damage so make sure you proceed with caution. As DooMLoRD mentiones, it’s still in the testing phase and once he gets a few more people to successfull root their device with it, he’ll be posting it in the HTC Jetstream Development Section.

So if you have your HTC Jetstream handy and want to take a swing at rooting it, follow this link for additional information, instructions and download links or this link if you want to read the whole thread leading up to it.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
