What will become the infamous BlackBerry PlayBook root was patched today in an OS update pushed by RIM. However, no less than a few hours later, and the PlayBook has been rooted using a different exploit.

One of the developers of the PlayBook root, Chris Wade, says the new exploit utilizes the “DenyUsers=root” on SSH. He has not yet mentioned if he will release a new version of DingleBerry for the new exploit. We’ll keep you posted if they decide to release a new version. How many of you already rooted your PlayBook?
