On another forum, a developer has expressed a willingness to see if he can develop a flashable zip file to allow custom recoveries to be installed on the HAM2. A HAM2 user comfortable using adb needs to see if he can get partition info to the developer as a first step (the developer doesn't own a HAM2). (I don't want to upset xda developers so if you want to read about this, just google "still no root HAM2" or you can pm me.) Maybe, if we're lucky, at least one developer will get a HAM2 and become motivated to develop a root method.
Yeah, I found this thread a while ago and now it seems I'm his beta tester![/QUOT]
I just looked at the update to the thread. I'm glad you pointed the developer to this forum, too. Thanks for your help. A big cheer for you from this novice HAM2 user who's hoping to have a HAM2 that was ordered from Amazon in hand next week. Maybe baby steps will lead to a root method being developed. I would like to see a method to root so we could unlock the root capabilities of ES File Explorer, especially if we get an upgrade to KK down the road.
