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!

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...

Now that is an extremely difficult thing to ponder. I've been wanting Lollipop on this phone really bad, but with root I could actually figure out what's keeping my phone awake and do Titanium backups! Aaaah, I'll probably choose root.

    This person is not with the group that rooted it, and has no relation to beaups' and my app, sunshine. This is not coming to sunshine.

    This person is a fraud.

    Honestly we would have released it by now if people here weren't so mean to me. We are debating on whether or not to release the information. You can't be nice you might not ever get it. I got 4 warnings when I said I had temp root. Why would I release a broken product?

    No we don't have the bootloader yet. Most likely coming to Sunshine. Obviously its not a 1 click solution otherwise it would be released. Please be patient, we bricked 2 devices doing it. It is dangerous because it has to do with init code. Please relax while we work out the bugs. Scott and I are working feverishly. You wouldn't want a bricked device now would you? Rabid dogs man gathering around a steak acting like its the second coming of Christ or something... Please be patient while we work it out. The bug was through the camera app, we were able to gather init lines and break in.
