is the dark side of the Android
platform. It opens your phone up to a world of unsanctioned opportunities and typically has carriers swatting you back

. So you'll understand how bizarre it is that Cincinnati Bell
is offering Milestone XT720
users software and
an instructional video how-to that boots Eclair out, for its Froyo successor. Making use of the widely-popular SuperOneClick app, intrepid owners will be walked through the usual root, back-up and ROM-flashing steps. But the regional carrier's no dummy as the procedure ends with users unrooting
their devices, freeing the network from unwanted congestion and reducing the risk of a bricked phone. Customers of this Ohio-based provider should check the source for a forbidden peek into Android's underbelly.
