Retail version already rooted

Less than two weeks after the finished retail edition of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 arrived on the market, the device has already been rooted. Enthusiasts at XDA-Developers have posted a tutorial and files that are said to be necessary to gain root access. The exploit is allegedly reversible, allowing users to unroot their devices if necessary.

The Tab 10.1 runs the latest official release of Google's tablet-optimized OS, Android 3.1, limiting the range of potential customizations until users have a chance to explore the possibilities. Both the retail variant and pre-release tablet, distributed at Google's I/O event, have been rooted.

Samsung's latest tablet centers around a 10.1-inch display with 1280x800 resolution, with a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and choice between 16GB or 32GB of storage.
