Owners of Sprint’s QWERTY-packin’ 4G beast, Samsung’s Epic 4G, and fans of Android hacking/modding already know that the device has been rooted for a couple of weeks. But root doesn’t offer up a lot of options for the serious tweaker without a custom recovery image, which helps us to flash cooked ROMs and make and restore Nandroid backups. Thankfully, one of the most popular recoveries for Androids, Clockwork, has made its way to the Epic, and you can get your own up and running by following the instructions here (at your own risk, of course).
The current status of the project is not ideal, but the existence of the hack demonstrates that progress is being made.
