The worlds first Android based wrist watch gets rooted! Sporting a tiny 1.6” screen, you’d wonder why would anyone need to root the MOTOACTV. Well, it’s simple, because it can be done, and if you own this one of a kind device, you will definitely want to root it. Intended as a fitness device with an mp3 player and GPS, the device runs a highly customized UI atop Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Once rooted, you also have the ClockworkMod recovery available as well, but that’s another thing. For now we focus on rooting the device. It’s not your One Click solution so be very careful.
This will currently only work on the 8GB model and not the 16GB one.
