Research In Motion is obviously aware of this “Dingleberry” root that’s roaming around the web now available for download.
So here’s RIM’s official statement on the matter:
“RIM is aware of reports that a security researcher has released a tool designed to allow BlackBerry PlayBook users to jailbreak their tablet. RIM is following its standard security response process to investigate the functionality and impact of this tool and if needed, RIM will develop, test, and release a software update that is designed to minimize the potential adverse impact to our customers.”
With that said, we’ll be seeing an OS update for the tablet which will “help” eliminate exploiting roots. There’s no estimated time for the update yet, but keep your eyes open in Software Updates on the PlayBook.
