    Rooting the device will not prevent you downloading apps from App World, but currently the only rootable OSes are older versions of the OS. Not all apps will be compatible with these older versions of the OS and therefore some apps cannot be installed. (This phenomenon will only increase in the future). In theory, you can root on an old OS, then upgrade to a custom version of a newer OS to keep root. But tools to do this have not been released publicly, and the one person I know was working on it at one point (xsacha) lost root on his PlayBook and so is no longer working on it. (He did have it working, but it has not been released as he can't work on it).

    As for what you can do if you root the device: It doesn't really open up a huge amount of possibilities. It allows you to access the Android Market in the Android Player, instead of having to sideload Android apps (won't change compatibility with Android apps though). It allows you to use "USB OTG" i.e. enable USB "host mode" so that you can use USB storage (flash drives etc.) and keyboards and mice. It allows you to install themes to change the look of the OS a bit. It allows you to change the icons of installed apps.

    I think that's about it. If none of that stuff appeals to you, I would not bother messing with root.

    If you have already turned on the PlayBook, it is probably too late to root it anyway, as it will have been upgraded to the latest OS, which cannot be rooted.

    Hayer, mmkn değildir. Sen kklenme demek?

    Cihaz kklenme size App World uygulamaları indirirken, ancak şu anda sadece rootable işletim sistemleri OS srmleri vardır engel olmaz. Tm uygulamalar işletim sistemi bu eski srmleri ile uyumlu olacak ve bu nedenle bazı uygulamalar yklenemez. (Bu olay sadece gelecekte daha da artacaktır). Teorik olarak, root tutmak iin yeni bir işletim sistemi zel bir srmn ykseltmek, daha sonra eski bir işletim sistemi zerinde root olabilir. Ama bunu yapmak iin aralarını kamuya henz aıklanmadı ve biliyorum bir kişi bir noktada (xsacha) at zerinde alışmakta olduğu onun PlayBook kk kaybetti ve bu yzden artık zerinde alışıyor. (O alışma var, ama o alışmıyor gibi serbest bırakıldığı değil). Cihazın kk eğer ne yapabilirim gelince: Gerekten olanakları ok byk bir miktar yukarı amıyor. Bunun yerine sideload Android uygulamaları (Android uygulamaları olsa uyumluluk değişmez) zorunda, sen Android Player'da Android Market'e erişim sağlar. Size USB depolama (flash srcler vb) ve klavye ve fare kullanın bylece "USB OTG" yani enable USB "ana bilgisayar modu" kullanmanıza olanak sağlar. Bu işletim sisteminin grnmn biraz değiştirmek iin temaları yklemenize olanak tanır. Size ykl uygulamalar simgeleri değiştirmenizi sağlar. Ben bu konuda olduğunu dşnyorum. Bu şeyler hibiri sizi cekiyorsa, ben kk karıştırmasını rahatsız olmaz. Zaten PlayBook atıysanız, bunu kkl edilemez en son işletim sistemi, ykseltilmiş olan gibi, muhtemelen yine de kk ok ge.

    I don't speak Turkish, you can Google Translate this if no one can help in Turkish:

    You need to root before you can use USB OTG. If you have already turned on the PlayBook, it is probably too late to be able to root. If you have not turned on the PlayBook yet, there is a way to do it, but it is complicated and I fear much of the process would be lost in translation.

    Sorry I can't be of more help than this. I do not want to say much, because I don't think it will translate well.

    I'm not sure of the exact process. I believe it may involve finding a file called "cfp.exe", which is hard to find. There may be other ways too. Hopefully someone else can be more help than me.

    What Cfp.exe?
    06-09-12 11:24 AM
  11. xsacha's Avatar
    Yeah you need to find cfp 3.9.0.165
    Install firmware you want using cfp load name.signed

    Then you update to latest OS using normal means (out of box setup). Then, before booting this new OS, you must use cfp resetqnxosregion

    When you buy the Playbook it is version 1.0.

    When you turn it on, it asks to update to 2.0.1.358. If you have already done this you can no longer root, sorry.

    BTW, you can downgrade then root the PB anyway.

    RE: BTW, you can downgrade then root the PB anyway.


    PB OS v2.1.0.1088 is the current version as of 2012-12

    Everything I've read says you can't downgrade, then root from 2.1.0.1088.
    Only exception being being a procedure is which you purposely corrupt the OS during flashing a OS image to the PlayBook (It's supposed to be pretty risky = most likely to brick device)

    Is this the procedure you are referencing, if so (or not) can you go into detail on how it is done?

    can you root version 2.1.0.1314
    NO,

    You only have (1) chance to root on a new PlayBook, once it auto updates it cannot be rooted.
