T-Mobile G2 Root Fund pledges cash for the first person who creates a permanent root access hack

T-Mobile G2 Root Fund pledges cash for the first person who creates a permanent root access hack
The T-Mobile G2 has a bug that restores the original ROM of the phone every time you try to update it with something custom, which must be pretty annoying for its users, considering how important root access is for Android devices. T-Mobile claims that it is there to prevent "accidental modifications" to the phone, but people who know their way around creating custom ROMs have just called it a bug.

That's why the owners of the T-Mobile G2 have set a bounty on that pesky permanent root access hack. Over at XDA-Devs the owners' community has pooled around $700 so far for the first person who allows them to fully enjoy their Android device. With that kind of publicity, we are sure that the issue will be resolved pretty soon, and even if you sniff at the cash prize, you can always do it for the glory.
