"Not to bring anybody down... but seriously... we intentionally left the device unlocked so you guys could hack it and do crazy fun sh** with it," Google engineer Stephen Lau wrote. "I mean, FFS, you paid $1500 for it... go to town on it. Show me something cool." Hack isn't a bad thing, just that someone found a way around what it normally does. A hack.

Why would Google want to not load their boats? How would they use them? (FYI, I have no clue if there are actual boat loaders out there.)

Jailbreak cannot be valid for Android -.- root has nothing to do with that!
