First the iPhone, now the Droid: A hacker has unleashed an exploit that lets
a user wrest administrative root control of his or her Motorola Droid
The code, which was posted on the AllDroid online forum, lets a user gain
root privileges to either Motorola Droid Android 2.0 or Android 2.0.1 version
phones. That basically means a user can run whatever themes, gadgets, and
applications he or she wants — akin to a jailbroken iPhone. The Droid, which is
based on Google’s Android operating system, runs on Verizon’s network.
