‘Dingleberry’ Jailbreak Released for PlayBook

Much to RIM’s horror, the BlackBerry PlayBook has been jailbroken by cmwdotme & co., allowing users to gain root access to the device. An early beta of the jailbreaking tool, hilariously named Dingleberry, is available for users who want to crack open their PlayBook. There’s not much going on in terms of homebrew development for the dying slate, but we’re sure someone will manage to port Android onto it, which would make it pretty worthwhile. RIM is working on a patch to fix the vulnerability, so if your mother mistakenly bought you a PlayBook instead on an iPad, ignore any notifications to update.
