Rumrunner S-Off Now Available for the HTC Droid DNA

Just yesterday, we mentioned how the  was starting to receive its Android 4.2.2 update in the form of a 2-part OTA. While official OEM-provided Android updates are always welcome, they often also come with the unwanted side effect of closing off previous root methods.

Luckily, when one door is closed, another often opens—and this new door comes in the form of a new S-off method for devices running software version 3. XDA Recognized Developer beaups managed to bring his Rumrunner S-off method to the device. As described by the developer:

 software version 1.xx – use facepalm
software version 2.xx – use moonshine (2.06 version of moonshine DOES work with 2.07 devices)
software version 3.xx – use rumrunner

If you have a recently updated device and you want to get the S-off goods, make your way over to the original thread to get started.

[Many thanks to XDA Forum Member Skokielad for the heads up!]

Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
