We are looking into some possible root methods in irc freenode #photon-4g
the method we are trying requires access to webtop. If anyone can hop on irc we may find root.

the phone was rooted on IRC last night

I just dismantled my old evo dock (official),.switched around the usb connector and I was able to use the hdmi mirroring on my tv...worked great!

Not sure if this helps anyone...was hoping I would be able to launch the webtop once I plugged it in but only had the standard options for the hdmi connection.

Apparently I'm the only one ever who ordered the HD Dock :eek: Hoping we get it

Edit: Got it!

Details to follow, but the method used does require Webtop (thus the HD Dock)
