It’s not exactly big news when a new smartphone gets rooted these days (unless it’s your smartphone, and you’ve been waiting desperately). But when that phone is Motorola’s new $179 Moto G which aims to redefine the budget smartphone space, it’s kind of worth noting that the phone appears to be pretty hacker friendly.

Shortly after the phone hit the streets, MoDaCo’s Paul O’Brien has posted instructions for rooting the device (after following Motorola’s instructions for unlocking the bootloader).

  1. The Dell Latitude E7440 review link isn’t working. I get a “Page not found (404)” error page.

  2. it looks like a good phone but I don’t get why they couldn’t have a modular battery on it…

    1. Yup, and an (micro)SD slot. And allow booting from it. That would make it hacktastic.
