Rooting an Android handset is the first step on the ladder towards freedom from a carrier’s software and restrictions. Whilst it has not been established if the boot loader is signed yet, gaining root is a definite step in the right direction. A dump of the software is already available from designgears.

We Have Root!!
Well, I thought this was going to be hard.
Thanks to Getaphixx, the guy who dumped the phone, for testing this out for me! He has the worlds first rooted Atrix, CONGRATS!
No wipe on reboot
(note: I don’t have an Atrix, yet)
Thanks to pulser_g2 for this article!

If you are itching to get your hands dirty with some of the best devices that were announced at CES this past month, then rest assured that we got you covered. We have added some playgrounds for beginning of discussions regarding cracking, hacking, or otherwise modding both Motorola devices and the latest LG. Simply put, these two seem to be among the top of the top of all the devices debuted at the expo. Much information about specs and such is currently available in blog sites throughout the web, so we will not bother you too much with technical details. What we will say though is the fact that at long last, we will be able to see good, powerful devices once again placing them on top of our dev charts, and this time, they are not made by HTC. It is a shame for HTC, but it looks like the competitors are finally beginning to catch up, which in turn is good for us as we will have more toys to play with.
If you already have some unknown information about any of these and would like to share it with the rest of the community, be sure to post in the corresponding forum.

Motorola Droid Bionic home.
LG Optimus 2X home.
