You can slow 'em down, HTC... but you can't stop 'em. That's the message that xda-developers is sending loud and clear today on news that the T-Mobile G2 has graduated from a temporary root solution to a permanent one, despite HTC's attempt to lock it down tight in hardware. Interestingly, the solution involves starting with the already-tried-and-true temporary root and applying a few additional steps; as always, you want to be careful with these sorts of things, but we've no doubt there are thousands of G2 owners out there who've already beaten us to the punch. Let us know how it goes, won't you?
