Sadly no - the only way to know is to solder in a few wires, and take a peek.Chinpokomon wrote:Is there any way to know what state my Revue is in w.r.t. the UART?
I purchased a refurbished Revue, so I don't know what build is on it, nor do I know if the UART is still enabled. I don't especially want to open the device and do a bunch of soldering only to find out that it is too late for me to root. Supposedly this device has never been turned on, but I have no way to know that for sure.
I'm pretty sure we won't be waiting for eternity to get 3.1 rooted. But, if I had soldered my $300 box to root it I wouldn't be giving that up anytime soon - even as great as 3.1 is! Surely it can't be that hard for a dev to take the 3.1 update file and create a rooted version?bitbang3r wrote:Update... It appears that 3.1 is still unrooted, installing it will unroot a rooted Revue, and as always, it's a one-way trip with no future ability to re-root on the radar at this time.
Sigh. Limp along with rooted Froyo to keep future possibilities open, or eat the poisoned fruit and be jailed in unrooted hell for eternity.
