Those of you waiting for your AT&T HTC One to arrive we have great news for you. The bootloader in your HTC One can be unlocked. If you are aware of rooting, custom recoveries, and custom roms having an unlocked bootloader is very important. The best part is that the unlock comes from HTC’s Dev website making the unlock legit. Users over at XDA have already reported on gaining root access and successfully flashing a custom recovery (ClockworkMod) on to the AT&T HTC One.

It seems like renowned Android developer, Koushik Dutta, has his hands in everything these days. From creating his own backup application to his continued support for ROM Manager, he sure has been busy in the Android community. After realizing that most of the superuser applications were not up to his standard, he decided to make his own. Now, that app has been released to the public in beta form with many pretty cool features.

No matter what evil locks they put on Motorola devices, it seems that someone will always find some way around it. Once again, this has been proven true by DroidRZR.com developer djrbliss. Djrbliss has successfully rooted the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX running Android 4.1, which has been on these devices since Christmas.

As I've said time and time again, one of my favorite things about Android is root access. With root, you can do all kinds of great things that weren't possible without root. Really, nothing warms my heart like seeing a bunch of phones get root access, and my heart warmed this morning when I read that a whole slew of Motorola phones got root access from Djrbliss.

Do you know what is awesome about Android? Rooting. Do you know what's even more awesome than rooting? Having the device you are currently drooling over already rooted before it is even released. It seems like this is the case with the AT&T version of the Galaxy Note 2.

I try not to take for granted the luxury I have chosen by owning Nexus devices over the past few years. I can unlock my boot loader and root my phone with very little resistance from the carrier or the OEM. For others, there always seems to be something that wants to make the experience more difficult or annoying. Case in point: Motorola's ICS release for the Droid RAZR Maxx and Droid 4 now identify whether or not you've ever rooted your phone - even if you've flashed back to pure, unrooted stock.

Imagine you have your phone set to a custom ringtone you have stored on your SD card, and you miss a call for an important meeting or interview or whatever else because your phone didn't ring. You then go to your settings and discover that all your ringtones are gone! You had just flashed a new ROM, so your first instinct might be to post an excited and/or panicky comment on that ROM's thread, but you might not be aware of the true source of this issue: yesterday's 220.127.116.11 update to ROM Manager.
