For those who haven't been watching the Bounty thread, it's been confirmed that the Turbo has indeed been rooted by maiko1, see here and here for proof in videos. Also, jcase has confirmed that it is legit here.

I'll keep this thread up to date as more info becomes available, but it seems like the wait could finally be over! Can't say anything yet as to if or when the method will be released, but this is definitely great news!

Edit 3/13: jcase has stated that sunshine will not work on the Turbo even when root is released.. Yet. We can hope, but as of right now the bootloader will remain locked.

Edit 3/17: multiple developers have stated that *IF* the turbo gets a BL unlock, they will work on porting Cyanogenmod to it.

Edit 3/18: maiko1 has indicated that "final stages of testing have begun" for the root method.

Edit 3/25: the root method is supposedly going to be out later today! See here where it is confirmed last night for a release today.

EDIT 3/25: ROOT IS LIVE! Get it while it's hot!

Sweet, this is good news. Don't have a Turbo but this may be the deciding factor.

Wow, made my night. But I'll take the wait and see approach for now, video's look good and remarks from trusted members, call me doubting Thomas but I'll wait to really dance around when the instructions and files are available. Ok,I lied I'm dancing now!!!

I still don't think its 100% legit. It's gonna take more than two videos to convince me. The ONLY reason I'm even considering that its real is because jcase is backing it...

He hasn't let me down either.. I've used his work and praise his work..like I said..he's the only reason why there's any truth behind this..
