Verizon Motorola Droid is Rooted !!!

According to a post on AllDroid, the Verizon Motorola Droid has been rooted by Zinx Verituse.
We have no way or verifying if this is in fact true, but we have no reason to disbelieve.

I’ve rooted the Droid;

md5sum of initial exploit zip: 94a0c30ea9104c2776d042e760bfd716
Download the file directly from AndroidStory here

The exploit provides a /system/bin/su from AOSP (that is, you can only use it from adb shell).
Other payloads can be arranged, but I’m too lazy to make them myself.

Provide a decent payload and I will turn it in to an update.zip that the Droid will apply.
Restrictions: The payload zip must be <63k
I can add files already in the official update to it (update-binary).

We’ll keep you posted as we find out more
