AT&T Motorola ATRIX 4G already rooted

Motorola hasn’t been too keen on Android modders tinkering with its smartphones, throwing in various locked-down bootloaders and other frustrations to prevent the hardware running custom ROMs. Unfortunately for Moto, however, there’s nothing a hacker likes more than a challenge, and so it comes as little surprise to discover that the Motorola ATRIX 4G has been rooted before it’s even on shelves.


According to BriefMobile it’s the handiwork of AT&T developer DesignGears, who has sent out images of his ATRIX 4G with Superuser access and running Titanium Backup to show that the phone has been modded. Right now the instructions on how to actually gain root access aren’t public, but then since the phone itself isn’t either that’s probably no great issue.

AT&T confirmed earlier in the week that the ATRIX 4G would arrive earlier than expected, dropping into stores from February 22 (and reaching pre-order customers on February 21) rather than in early March as originally suggested. More details on the phone in our full unboxing and hands-on.
