Only a day after @PaulOBrien, the founder of, defeated HTC's new protection techniques and successfully rooted HTC Desire, he strikes again with a successful root of HTC Legend, using pretty much the same methods.

The hack is coming ASAP but for now we can all admire the following beauty in tweet form:

HTC Legend rooted

Update: a new tweet from Paul:

HTC Legend rooted

Update: full instructions now available!

Of course, we will update you when the details of the root become public. In the meantime, feel free to monitor the official HTC Legend MoDaCo post (which currently has no action yet).

Go Paul!

P.S. If you are not sure about the whole rooting business, head over right here where we've already explained everything just for you.
