    PlayBook Jailbreak "DingleBerry" Now Available


    Last week we reported that the BlackBerry PlayBook had been rooted. This was really big news, as the terms root and jailbreak are virtually unheard of in the world of BlackBerry. That all changed when a tweet heard round the world by @cmwdotme declared he had successfully rooted the PlayBook. Cmwdotme along with fellow hackers @neuralic and @xpvqs stated that they would make the jailbreak available within one week of gaining root access to the device.

    Cmwdotme has made well on his promise and released his jailbreak to the world. The jailbreak has been posted on the official website of the project dingleberry.it. This is good news as many people have been anxiously waiting for this since its announcement.

    RIM has already responded to the jailbreak, saying that they would follow normal patching procedures as soon as the method used to gain root access was released. I am sure that we can expect a patch from RIM within the next couple of days. The developers behind the dingleberry exploit have stated that when this exploit is patched by RIM they will work on version 2.0 of their jailbreaking tool. Now the cat and mouse games have officially started.

    Nothing at the moment other than enable the root. Some quotes from @cmwdotme

    Right now it's perfect for devs to be creative with having access to root.

    Good to see Netfilx and Hulu updates coming. Who knows, maybe this will finally get RIM and Netflix and Hulu to actually work something out so we PlayBook owners can enjoy our subscriptions.
