Geohot threw in the towel and rooted my Note!

20140620-171212-61932426.jpg Towelroot is a fast and easy tool to root your Android device. The first version didn’t work for very many devices, but now it seems he’s refined the process. More devices supported and no more reboot required. It is certainly nice to gain the extra privileges finally as I was just beginning to need it. My android experiments have until now been within the bounds of google’s sandbox. Very soon I will be using android as my primary mobile device so this was magnificent timing. Thanks George. I cannot wait to see what you break/fix next.

On a side note, this is one of my favorite features of Android’s security model. Let the user decide. See the screen shot bellow. Could you imagine something similar on iOS?
