Google ION not rooted
Google ION is not rooted... NOT ROOTED... it has an Engineering SPL that will let you flash different roms
... in orden to get root you have two choices...
1) Install a rooted rom (you don't have to install the SPL), i tried Haykuro's rootme rom and it didn't work the phone was in a bootloop... didn't wipe, so maybe that's the problem...
2) Make a nandroid backup booting a recovery img (i used haykuro's), take the boot.img and unpackit... unpack ramdisk, set ro.secure to 0, repack everything, fastboot boot to see if it works propertly and if everything goes ok you can flash it... is a simple process... i did it in linux and that way i didnt have to wipe my phone or change the rom which i really like.
