PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless InfoWorld's Serdar Yegulalp provides an in-depth tutorial on how he rooted and upgraded his Motorola Cliq XT, one of many Android phones made infamous for not receiving further Android updates beyond 1.5. 'It turned out to be quite an odyssey, with twists and turns I describe here in order to help those who wish to embark on a similar journey,' Yegulalp writes. 'Was it worth the trouble? Yes, in the sense that learning how to jailbreak your own phone is a valuable skill, and I got much more functionality out of the Cliq, when I was expecting to simply junk it. '

+1 Very true, exactly the same feelings here. At some point age gets to you and the thought of spending 3h hacking my phone to run the latest software becomes nonsense. I mean, I do email, calendar, look at prices on the web when stood in stores, make some calls and play angry birds (occasionally). I just want to plug the thing into the computer and have it automagically sync everything in the background without me needing to look at it or deal with it. I have both android (personal) and iphone (work). I guess I'm getting lazy and ensnared by the fruit but iphone wins out for all these reasons.
