How to root the Motorola Defy

What good is a rugged phone if it won’t behave the way you want it to? It’s great to be able to submerge a mobile device in water without fear, but if it’s stolen, and the thief can make the phone his or her own (no discrimination here, lllllladies!), your hard core gadget won’t seem so hard core, wil it? (Use Theft Aware on rooted devices to protect yourself).

If you like to tweak tech as much as splash around in a mountain stream while reading email, perhaps you should follow the guide over at xda-developers for rooting the Defy. This ain’t no one-click procedure, but like the post over at the xda blog indicates, you might as well learn a thing or two about Android while you’re “hacking” it, right?
