Android One Phones Get Rooted

android one rootedGoogle’s brand of Nexus handsets do stand out from the majority of the other Android-powered devices out there in the market because they do have the tendency of being developer-friendly. If you would want to unlock the bootloader, it is more or less as easy as plugging in a USB cable, before one enables USB debugging, before issuing a command on your PC via the Android SDK or at least fastboot. Word has it that the first batch of Android One smartphones are equally developer friendly, as a member from the xda-developers forum has already ported ClockworkMod recovery in order to have it run on the first wave of Android One handsets.

Does this mean that the upcoming second wave of Android One smartphones too, will be as easy to handle in terms of having its bootloader unlocked and running a custom recovery ROM? Chances are pretty good that it will be the same, this I am rather confident.

After all, with Android One being Google’s intent of offering highly affordable Android smartphones to emerging markets, at the same time providing a reliable software experience, making it as accessible as possible to everyone is a good idea. Who knows, out of the potential millions (or maybe billion) people who use an Android One handset, he or she might find new way to program a mod which Google might find revolutionary, an opportunity which might not have been chanced upon if the entry price point was way out of reach in the first place?
