MotoACTV Ripped Open and Rooted

A couple of months ago, Motorola announced the MotoACTV, which is a basically a sports tracker. The ACTV is meant for active people, who regularly do some physical exercises and are interested in logging their work out and analyzing how much calories they burnt, their heart beat rate etc.

The ACTV runs on a customized version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and like every other Android gadget released released in the last year or so, has been rooted as well. In fact, the developer who rooted his ACTV even went ahead and ripped it open. Inside, he found an OMAP 3630 SoC running at 600MHz, along with 256MB of RAM and the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM Radio chips.

The developer also managed to install the Honeycomb 1.8 launcher on the ACTV, and was successfully able to get access to Android Market and other Google Apps like GMail and Google Maps. In fact, the developer even managed to get Angry Birds up and running on the ACTV. Interested MotoACTV users can find all the required instructions and file to root their gadget here.
