    You can get to the escreen, but "rooting" in the Android sense, no.

    It depends on your perspective.
    Consumer largely want to tweak and personalise. Security minded agencies prefer control and uniformity of experience.

    Cracked app repositories are not necessarily a sign of OS excellence.

    Because that is none of Blackberry's business.

    There wouldn't be much security if it could be rooted..

    A big reason to pick BlackBerry is for security and rooting totally negates that advantage, you could easily have a cracked app store without rooting because you could just sideload it, and it's not android or iOS. It may not be feasible.
