News is quickly spreading that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 units given away to Google IO attendees yesterday are completely unlocked and ripe for all sorts of hackery, including quick and easy rooting. If you're among the lucky few to have your hands on one of these desirable devices, all you need to do to gain root access is push a zip file over ADB, reboot into recovery mode and run your newly-transferred file.
That's it -- no trickery or black magic, just a few lines at a command prompt and your Tab is rooted. Hit the source link for the download, along with full step-by-step instructions. We'll be crossing our fingers over the next month, and hoping that retail units are just as developer-friendly as the devices handed out at IO.
