yes there is determinately hope, jcase pretty much confirmed that, he has an exploit that gets root user, and he has a way to bypass /system write protection. He will release his stuff in August, and maybe even sooner if Google has already patched it. Once he releases his stuff, I am sure it can be easily adapted to this phone.
I was gonna try to see if I could get root before that, but I just do not have the knowledge or experience to find unknown vulnerabilities, and make exploits for them.
