[maemo-users] [maemo-users] risk of gain root on new devices

I am upgrading my device all the time to the latest release allthough I
am using
a internal rootimage that has xterm already installed and gaining root
haven't been
a problem so far, it always works. We have 4 of these devices in active
use in our household (2 prototypes and two final retail devices) and
never encountered any problem you described. 
Just follow the instructions, the worst you can end up is need to
reflash the device, 
but that you can do anyway assuming if you are seeking for root. I have
some additional
instructions in my blog allthough those are already covered in the maemo
wiki nowadays (I just checked what is told in maemo wiki and it seems to
describe everything). Have fun with
root :).

Best Regards,
Karoliina Salminen
