“It took me two hours while I was having dinner with friends at the time,” “The implementation from B1nary is for normal Android tablets and phones, I learned how it worked and then did the same thing on Glass…which was quite simple.” Freeman informed Forbes
Many developers have already started to receive their glasses, and are being able to test them out, with this I have been hearing great things about Google Glass, but I haven’t heard much about rooting the device. The Explorer Edition is more for Beta testing the device, also being able to bring us some of the first apps. Beta testing is designed to get any bugs and kinks out of a system or program prior to public release.
It is unknown yet as to what benefits rooting Google Glass might be, if any at all. Unlike cell phones where rooting will allow you to remove unwanted manufacturers apps, and change other settings, Google Glass will likely have a standard Android Operating system, or we can hope.
