Root your Android. SuperOneClick . Supposedly works on ALL Android OS phones.

Standard

Really Works !

I had to play around a little to get it to work.

Start with getting Motorola MEDIA LINK program for the DROID drivers.

For my Motorola Droid, have the device OFF!

Run the Super One Click program and click the Root button.

It will wait for the device to be found.

Turn on the Droid/Device and during boot windows will see it and load the drivers and all that.

This is where things can differ for devices. Mine was found and the program installed its stuff.

I had to then reboot the phone and run it again and it then completed the install. WITH the sdcard mounted.

Supposedly works on ALL Android OS phones.

Fewer Verizon Phones Will Incur New $350 ETF – But is Verizon backpedaling, or just reshuffling paperwork?

Standard


Verizon recently doubled the early termination fee for their smartphones from $175 to $350 — then engaged in a bit of a song and dance with the FCC, saying the hike was necessary because it “enables many more consumers, including those of more limited means, access to a range of exciting, state of the art broadband services and capabilities.” Neither consumers or the FCC really bought Verizon’s justification for the cash grab, but no further action has resulted at the FCC. Wireless Week notes that the list of phones that incur the new higher penalty has at least been reduced by ten or so handsets:

The Advanced Device List (pdf) filed with the FCC in mid-December contained a number of multimedia phones, including the Motorola Krave, the Samsung Rogue and five LG devices. Verizon s current list is stripped of those devices. Verizon s ETF fee for devices on the Advanced Device List is $350, twice that of the fee for devices not on the list.

Speculation seems to be that Verizon’s responding to FCC pressure about the new higher ETF, but more likely this reshuffling is simply the result of Verizon’s new wireless pricing plans, which resulted in the carrier reclassifying all phones into three categories: “simple feature,” “3G Multimedia,” and “3G smartphone.” Despite calling Verizon’s answers to their inquiry “unsatisfying” and “in some cases, troubling,” there’s no indication the FCC’s going to take any action. There’s also no indication Verizon gives much of a damn, given they just bumped their FiOS ETF to $360, despite the ever-decreasing cost of fiber installs.
