Check the Android police post by jcase where or originally got root access on Dingo. he lost all interest after the standard bridge was disabled in Ermine and after he caught flak from both enTourage and the community. I haven't tried it again after z4rooting, so maybe it works now. Anyway, both jcase and robot swore off developing for the eDGes in the aftermath. Some of the arguments are in the eDGe archive.
