The two new Android phone – HTC Desire and HTC Legend have been rooted for full file system access on Android 2.1. Paul at Modaco forums has confirmed to have got full su (root) access on the said devices, and is currently going through final release mechanics before he makes it public for everyone to use.
The European version of Droid – the Motorola Milestone has been finally rooted for full file system access on Android 2.0. This has been made possible by folks over at the German site named Android-Hilfe.de (English translated version). Root access will enable you to modify the phone’s firmware to whatever you want to have on your phone like themes, apps and custom Roms just like you do on the Verizon Droid, or the jailbroken iPhone.
