CyanogenMod-no-root

The CyanogenMod  project has finally acknowledged that the 1,000,000+ devices running CyanogenMod  come with a gaping security hole – default root access. With privacy issues and app permissions becoming more of a concern to smartphone users, running a jail-broken (rooted) device negates any security and data safeguards that Google has tried to build into the OS. So, in an attempt to keep everyone happy, while improving security, the team has decided on a compromise that will allow enthusiasts to keep using root privileges but also provide better default security for the majority of users. Starting with the first public CyanogenMod 9 alpha builds, root access has been disabled by default but with the…
