    i think the dev community has given up on us. so is there anyone out there that is still trying to root this thing or are we all doomed with this thing locked down?

    weasel over at the backflipforums is making a good effort. if he can find a new exploit it may work on the devour. I think we need a leaked firmware to make it work though. all the ones released are worthless for the att backflips

    Well, with 2.1 coming in the next few months hopefully that will give the folks working on it what they need.

    Is there a firm date set for the 2.1 upgrade yet? Frustrating enough not finding a way to root this phone, could at least have an upgrade now that 2.2 is out
