Advanced Users: Dingleberry BlackBerry PlayBook Root Exploit Beta Released

UPDATE: Beta 0.3 of Dingleberry is now available

DingleBerry

For those of you who were patiently waiting for @cmwdotme to release the Dingleberry exploit you can now rejoice. They have made the root exploit available on their site www.dingleberry.it. It is available for Windows users now in beta form and will be coming to Macs soon too. From what Chris explains this exploit takes advantage of RIM not signing the backups they take through desktop manager and modifies the devices smb.conf. This root exploit essentially lets them run a script as root whenever a SMB connection is made…

Check it out at www.dingleberry.it. Keep in mind this is for advanced users only and while the chances are you won’t screw up your devices don’t say we didn’t warn you! With escalated privileges comes greater responsibility!

  2. It sounds like something RIM may lock down pretty quickly.

  3. Oh they have already committed to it for today.
