    I think RIM should get their own name associated with gaining access to the root. Jail breaking is for iOS, Rooting is for Android. C'Mon......... Your one chance to lead the way with your own thing..........

    I will start with a few:
    Rimed
    ReRimed
    UnRimed
    RimFree
    Fluffed
    Flushed

    A BlackBerry would be "seeded"?

    Only thing is unlike IOS there is no real reason to perform a "RIM Job" on the PlayBook now that OS2 has been released so why do it other than to see if you can. To do it again on have to go backwards then you can load Android Apps which can be done anyway...you may also after a lot of filling use the USB port to connect to a storage device, plus run DOS.

    One thing is for sure. If hackers come up with a BB "JB" they can rest in peace for a long while. RIM will not update their software for a long, long time. As usual. Unlike iOS or Droid. You may as well call it BBDoldRom...

    I agree but that does not matter to users, they love to unlock/JB/Root just because they can. The reasons are not much of a factor as during the early days of iOS for example. JB and Rooting has become as mainstream as the Apps or App Stores. None tech people are even aware of both and it's common.

    So true, interesting if/how RIM will approach this as it comes up? They can't embrace it but could be forced to update sooner than they planned in order to claim security etc. it could turn out to be a good thing actually.

    Isn't this kinda like iPhone in a way, they don't do upgrades much, they just build a new one and sell them all over again. I agree with why would you need to unless it was faster, better, and had the wow factor. It's kinda like flashing updates on my Nook Color, I do it but why? I see no changes what-so-ever after I do. I can say I have a droid device sorta.

    Apple updates iOS several times each year. I don't have numbers at the moment but they issues updates often for various reasons. Granted they are normally minor but they stay busy and pay attention.
