    Any progress on rooting this phone? I have a lot of junk programs I want to get rid of but can't... How hard is it to convert Charge root to the Aviator?

    The last I knew, there was enough different between the Charge/Aviator that the rooting/recovery methods for the Charge wouldn't work on the Aviator.

    I'm really hoping that the phone gets some developer love soon, because if it doesn't get better than this, I can't say that I am terribly excited about using it for the next 18 months.

    Once it get it rooted. hopefully we can figure out how to port the charge roms to it. (They have a ICS rom),

    Yeah, but from what I can tell, it's in pretty bad shape at this point. No radio support at all, which means no reception at all.

    I do miss ICS, though. I was shocked at how much of a step back Gingerbread was after getting used to ICS on my Mez.

    Yea I run ICS on my SCH-i800 (Galaxy Tab) And love it. Just wish USCC would release a official version.( They already said they would not).

    Has anyone tried my app BreakDroid yet. I am curious if it can root the aviator.

    Some one wanna test it for me?

    I actually just managed to get mine rooted this morning via the instructions posted in the "All Things Root" subforum. Otherwise I'd give it a try.

    Did you have to use odin or just super one click?

    Both. You have to odin the one file in, and that allows SOC to do its magic.

    Damn, odin is a no go on Mac.

    However, this does not mean you are unable to root. There are instructions over at TeamUSCellular for Mac users:

    It is a bit more complicated and relies heavily on using the terminal and ADB instead of SuperOneClick, but if you are familiar with both the terminal and ADB, it is fairly painless and takes less than 10 minutes. Worked for me first try on my old Macbook.
