What happens when you hand out an unreleased Android tablet to 5,000 developers at Google I/O? Google was probably hoping that all 5,000 developers would get excited about Honeycomb and start creating new apps to take advantage of the tablet UI framework. But that’s not what’s happened so far. It’s been less than 24 hours since Google handed out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and @_mrbirdman_ and a few others from AllDroid.org have managed to gain root access.
Rooting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 appears to be a fairly simple process. Simply mount the tablet’s file system, adb a zip file and then reboot the tablet. We have not tried this ourselves yet, but it sounds like a few people have been able to replicate the process and successfully gain root access.
Has anyone here managed to root their Galaxy Tab 10.1 yet? Be sure to let us know how things go.
