Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Gets Rooted, Hardly Puts Up a Fight


Well what did you expect when the advance release of the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 came at Google I/O? Of course the thing is already rooted, but the surprisingly simple procedure might have something to do with it, too. The process simply involves mounting the Galaxy Tab’s file system and copying a few files that grant Super User access and you’re done. Doesn’t take more than about 15 minutes, which is about as fast as it gets these days (one-click apps aside).

Credite goes out to @_mrbirdman_ and a crew from You can find the full instructions at the source link below. Now the question is whether or not Sammy patches this method up before launching to the general public.

  1. Samsung, not “Sammy”.

    1. Seriously?

  2. I cannot stress it enough: I WANT THIS TABLET.

    -Honeycomb awesomeness

    -Lighter and Thinner than other Tablets

    -Awesome Screen and Awesome Cameras

    -Dual Core nVidia processor with up to 60FPS

    I don’t think there’s a way that this tablet could disappoint someone…

    1. The Nvidia processor is trash

      1. And the basis for that comment is….what?

        If you’re using the XOOM’s ability to run video, then you’re way off base. Motorola seriously screwed that processor over when it comes to video codecs. Other manufacturers have had amazingly good implementation of the Tegra2, such as the gTablet (which I currently own). Sure, the screen is crap, but the graphics are smooth as butter.

      2. Shut up stupid.

    2. It’s not the NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, it’s the Exynos 4210 that’s in the Galaxy S2.

      1. In an article from yesterdays’ galaxy tab giveaway, people were posting that benchmarks read like the nVidia processor is on board. Of course, that could simply be for that specific device, as they are limited edition tablets.

        1. Really? Hmm. I wish Samsung would just come out and say what it is.

  3. This is really not that surprising as Samsung devices have always been very open. I own a Galaxy S and it’s really a great phone. It is impossible to brick, unless you super-overclock it and burn out the processor. Samsung never locks bootloaders or NAND.

    1. so far and they say they have no plans to start locking things down. . . as opposed to others–HTC & MOTO

  4. I think that maybe this needs to be taken with a grain of salt, after all this device hasn’t had its chance to be locked down tight by one of our good friends the service providers.
