Jailbreaking the G1: That sounds odd, right?


A cabal of tinkers have managed to get root access on the G1 using telnetd. Now, whether or not that constitutes “jailbreaking” (which is an awkward word to use considering Android is supposed to be an open source operating system from the get-go) or something a little less dramatic is another matter.

Or, to quote a Gizmodo commenter:

This reminds me of the Spongebob episode where they steal a balloon on free balloon day.

I think that says it all.
