This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with some of the terms, hit up our primers here:

The Galaxy Tab: It has been hyped as the first serious Android tablet. It is now seriously rooted.

Sera-Apps, the group responsible for cracking the Motorola Milestone wide-open, have been up to their antics again. This time, they've set their crosshairs on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The result? Headshot. Even though the device is not set to launch for about another month, you can rest assured that your warranty won't even have enough time to start feeling safe.

This opens up a whole new world for developers and modders, and it will definitely be exciting to see what the community can do with their new-found power over the tablet (custom tablet ROMs anyone?). Let's just hope Samsung doesn't use this next month to patch the exploit.

    CM7 for Galaxy Tab Released would be a nice headline in 2 months, eh?
