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. '

He just sounded unimpressed with them to begin with. ;)

I am unimpressed with them. But when I was in the market, Boost was the best of a bad lot, and were the least expensive for my usage pattern: since I'm almost always right by a landline, I don't even use the phone functionality on my cell enough to make a recurring charge of the kind anybody was offering worthwhile—I just put $25 on it every 7–10 weeks.
