The Motorola Atrix 4G isn’t expected to go on sale for another few days. But in advance of launch day hackers have managed to get a hold of the full system dump (containing the operating system and all the files and programs that will come with the phone.

Once that was done, users were able to extract the custom wallpapers, ringtones, and even the boot animation from the phone.

And then if that wasn’t enough, you can find pictures of a rooted Atrix 4G at the xda-developers forum. There are no instructions on how to root the phone yourself just yet, but the Getaphixx, who is responsible for the initial hack says he’ll release more info soon.

The Atrix 4G is a new phone with a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor running Google Android 2.2. It supports AT&T’s HSPA+ mobile broadband network, has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. But what really makes the phone cool is the way you can dock it with a laptop station to use a full version of the Firefox web browser on an 11.6 inch display or with a media dock for displaying HD video content on a big screen TV.
