Our friends over at Engadget have reported that the Galaxy Note 10.1 has been rooted by an industrious XDA Developer user going by the name Zedomax.
Zedomax achieved his goal by injecting root in the stock European firmware and then installing the superuser version in the regular ODIN way. If like me you’re new to the process, ODIN is a piece of software that is used to flash files, like ROMs on any Samsung smartphone or tablet device. For anyone wanting to try this, be aware the usual bricking rules and warnings apply.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the latest tablet to be release from Samsung. It sports a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor; 2GB RAM, comes in 3 different storage configurations (16/32/64GB) and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The main difference between the Note 10.1, and say the Galaxy Tab 2, is that the Note makes use of a stylus to interact with the OS and apps, as well as the normal touch techniques.
