    Latest EVO 4G root uses Flash Lite exploit to do its deed -- Engadget

    Given how similar the phones are, it seems like this vulnerability may also be present in the Inc's Flash Lite build, and may prove more successful in rooting ours if true. Admittedly, i don't really have a rooting need at the moment, but I am sure there are plenty of other eager people out there who might be able to try this....

    I just watched the 20 minute vid out of curiosity. Now I have a headache. :D

    Pretty sure someone at XDA already explored this option and found it doesn't apply to the Inc...

    I was just over there looking and didn't see any mention of it but on my mobile I can't use the search feature! Kinda figured there would have been quite a bit of discussion on it by now if it were a possibility.
