Anyone who’s played with a ROM will probably know about Paul from MoDaCo. I’m sure he still owes me a beer, but I’m still quite happy to mention this :) Paul has just managed to root the HTC Desire and the HTC Legend.
Most Android owners probably won’t ever need to have root access into the inner workings of their phone. It’s cool and geeky yes, but it does also let you run root-only apps that do things like screen-capture of WiFi tethering. It’s pretty much like opening the bonnet on your car and then messing around with the engine management system :)
