Default ROOT IDEA

I'm not too sure about too much of the heartbleed bug that has been going around but it has been confirmed that it can attack android 4.1.1 and above. Maybe its a possibility that we could look into this as an exploit to gain root access on our phones.
Below is a video talking about android vulnerability and also there is an app called ghost bleed that is supposed to look into and patch it till the carriers release an update to patch on their own. Hope this helps in any way to gain root

Heartbleed is a remote information disclosure vulnerability. I would not think that any information that would be useful to gaining root (such as vendor signing keys) would be resident in local memory

Unfortunately, any heart bleed exploit would only pertain to a remote user capturing secure data sent from the device wirelessly such as web service logins and passwords. The types of data we would need to get our hands on is never passed in this manner so the only things this affects is you're personal data.

Default Why not...?

Maybe we can use and abuse a system like Telnet? I'm no expert on phones, but I am a Computer Technician and Telnet used to be a way of hacking/getting into a PC into OS's. I mean Android is an modified OS to work on mobile devices.

Hmm I use telnet at work just to see if our clients have designated ports open? Didn't know it can be used for other things

telnet is a networking protocol which (a) is not enabled by default in android and (b) even if it were enabled does not run with elevated permissions (unless you already have elevated permissions) so there's nothing there to "abuse". Telnet has no relationship with any heartbleed exploits which similarly cannot be used to gain any elevated permissions.

Sorry, it's just not relevant to any root exploit for any devices, not just ours.
