We have some good news for those of you who have just purchased a MyTouch 4G handset on T-Mobile, as we can confirm that the handset has just been successfully rooted, with a little help from it’s neighbour, the G2.
As reported from Engadget, you won’t be surprised to hear that the root has been achieved once again courtesy of the guys over at the XDA Developers Forums.
User Grankin01 has written up a lengthy list of instructions as well as the download links needed to perform the root. As you can see from the list of steps, the process doesn’t exactly look ‘easy’, so it may be best to avoid this if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Also, now that the handset has been rooted, users shouldn’t have too long to wait until a custom version of Froyo is released, but you’d have to root your handset anyway if you wanted to install it.
