custom ROM on g2?


Oct 13, 2010, 11:21 AM
i havnt goten the new G2 yet, but had a customer complain that theyve locked the software on the phone not allowing any custom ROMs added to the phone...i know the phone is new, and it took a while before much was available for the this phone really locked down? can anyone confirm/elaborate?

yah its kinda true. Apperently htc set up some sort of bug to where it wont let you achieve full root and eventually itll reboot you back to stock....however i believe it'll only be temporary. Cyanogenmod got their rom on it with full root but appearently it was a rather nasty process. You can follow it over at xda and android central has articles about it too.
