    Root Sprint Motorola Photon 4G

    This from MobileBrief:

    Sprint launched the Motorola Photon 4G not more than a couple of weeks ago. The device features a 1 GHz Tegra 2 chip, qHD screen, and integrated Webtop Linux experience. It’s already got a couple of custom pseudo-ROMs, root through the HD dock, and a number of clutch modifications.
    Finally, users can enjoy root priveleges without purchasing one of those expensive HD

    docks. We’ve included the directions below for your Photon-rooting pleasure. Make sure to head over to the
    XDA-Developers forums

    to thank master developer Edgan for his efforts that rooted this device. See the directions after the break.

    1. Navigate to
