    I'd say so. With the exception of vuls which could be exploited to gain root permissions – those should go to XDA, so they can make a rooting tool ;) – Izzy Nov 5 '14 at 16:00

    If I managed to stumble across a vulnerability that could* modify root, XDA would be the first place to divulge that information. I am one to believe in technology openness. – Mattlinux1 Nov 5 '14 at 16:09
