T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide Rooted!
It’s been less than a month since we added the new myTouch Slide (HTC Espresso) to the roster of devices supported on the XDA forums, and already the brilliant developing community has managed to root the phone.
This week, XDA member eugene373 (along with help from a lot of other members) posted the first comprehensive guide to successfully root the Slide. Based on that of the HTC Incredible, the rooting process should be easy as long as you follow the guide to the letter. To help you out, eugene373 has also linked to a YouTube video tutorial, made by XDA member kingofyo1, of the entire process.
This is a major landmark in the process of developing for the Slide as it allows custom ROMs and other software to be flashed onto the device. You can read the complete guide in the tutorial thread.
