This keeps on getting better. It looks like the BlackBerry PlayBook root exploit we told you about before is real. The developers behind it, @xpvqs @cmwdotme @neuralic, have been hard at work hacking away at the BlackBerry PlayBook. Both Chris Wade and Neuralic have posted up videos showing off the exploit. See that screenshot above showing the UID 0? That means they have root (super user) access on the PlayBook. The first video shows the PlayBook root access from a PC and what that allows you to do. Supposedly that also allows you to load up Android Market on the Playbook OS 2.0 beta and directly install APK files without converting them into BAR files. In the second video Chris shows off Hulu working in the PlayBook browser which was most likely done by changing the user agent with root access.
So it looks like its real. Who is looking forward to when they release the Dingleberry PlayBook exploit to all? Neuralic said they should have an IRC room open soon so stay tuned! I am also very curious to see how RIM responds.
