HTC Desire didn't last long - it was rooted (see here for an explanation and benefits of having your Android phone rooted) today by @PaulOBrien, the founder of MoDaCo.com - a forum dedicated to rooting and customizing mobile devices, similar to xda-developers.com.
Paul, who had claimed he was confident he could root the Desire earlier this month, was away for about 2 weeks. His return today was accompanied by the following photo, clearly showing a program called Superuser Permissions present on his Desire:
For those wondering about Apps2SD support, Paul mentioned that he did indeed have it working.
HTC Legend And Incredible
Separately from the already exciting news, Paul also claimed that the root method also worked for HTC Legend and, possibly, the Incredible.
One thing is for sure - tomorrow will be a very exciting day for these phone owners.
