The longly waited for Sprint Epic 4G is the latest Android handheld to get rooted before it's even available for sale in stores. The new root method developed by Sebastian Krahmer used to root the Droid 2, the Evo 4G, and the Motorola Backflip looks like the solution of universal root many of users have been searching and waiting for.
The clever people over at SDX-Developers have the root method working, and are currently in the process of simplifying things for those who aren't total Android Lovers. If you are a total Android nerd that want to and can offer to help out and contribute or test builds, or just curious about the progress have a look at the source link. [SDX-Developers]
