If you're one of the few who dropped the coin and got a Samsung Galaxy Camera, good news: the Galaxy Camera toolkit is available now over at XDA. This comes from developer mskip, who is also responsible for the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, Nexus 4, and Nexus 10 toolkits, so you can rest assured that it is about as stable and secure as they come.

With the software, you can easily install drivers, root the camera, perform a full Nandroid backup, and so much more:

  • Install drivers automatically

      I wonder when the oven will get a root toolkit.

        2 weeks before release, somebody will root it.
        The toolkit typically comes 2-3 days after release... :)

        What scares me is that I'm not sure if you're talking about one of the Android powered ovens that appeared at CES, or if you were just choosing a random household appliance.

          I was implying a rootkit for the $7500 Dacor oven at CES, but sure we could have rootkits for other ovens too when they get hackable firmware. :-)
