This is a possibility at best and is totally unconfirmed. But I like this sort of news and gave a disclaimer, so there. The forums over at modaco.com feature a thread where a MoDaCo writer named Paul is discussing the progress he’s made in rooting Acer’s Liquid A1, which started shipping in the UK on December 8th.
As you can see, the sole poster – an admin of the forums – goes from deciding to embark to successfully rooting the device in a matter of hours:
Time will tell how simple and complete the hack is but if it allows people to bump that Snapdragon up to 1 GHz from the stock 768, I don’t expect many savvy owners to go without – regardless of its effects on battery life.
