Root method for the Droid Turbo released for $20

verizon_motorola_droid_turbo_blue_ballistic_nylonA root method has finally been released for Motorola’s Droid Turbo, with a small catch. The program costs $20 per phone you plan on rooting, which is pretty rare to see with root methods on Android devices.

The root tool was developed by maiko1 on XDA and allows you to flash any system image to your Droid Turbo, included pre-rooted system images. It won’t disable write protection, but if all you’re looking for is a simple root method to use some of your favorite root apps, this should do the trick.

Nexus_6_Cloud_White_And_Midnight_BlueWe know Verizon’s Nexus 6 is coming, and probably fairly soon, but some new promotional material has leaked that confirms some of the rumors we’ve already heard. The official launch date of the device will be March 12th if you’re willing to order it online, and the Nexus 6 will be offered in stores on March 19th.

As far as pricing goes, you’ll be able to snag a 32 GB variant for $249 on contract, $29.16 per month if you opt for Verizon’s Edge installment plans, or $699 if you plan on purchasing it outright.
