Towelroot - Geohot is back and totally kills it!!!
So Geohot, Jailbreak pioneer, just released an app to root virtually ANY Android device with a single reboot.
From Android Police: In fact, Geohot claims that any Android device with a kernel built before June 3rd (anything running 4.4.2 or lower, basically) should theoretically be rooted by Towelroot.
Just tried on my Xperia Z Tablet which was a pain in the a** to root, and it worked like a charm.
So, for everyone afraid of rooting, things just got a lot more easier.
