Has anyone done this? Is it safe to do? From this article http://maemo.org/maemowiki/HowDoiBe...ight=%28root%29 it sounds like there is a good chance that you will brick your 770. What is up with that? I don't understand why Nokia didn't give root access to the 770? So who all has root on their 770?

Just set the device to R&D mode (you need the Linux flasher tool, but no flash image) and then you can use 'sudo gainroot' to open a root console.

I wouldn't bother with the patching or the old (left for academic interest) methods, R&D mode works fine.
