    After much waiting, the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet has finally been rooted.

    The exploit was discovered by Dan Rosenberg officially known throughout the development community and twitter handle as djrbliss.

    The full root process can be found on his blog here. Additional info can be found here.

    I am providing a copy of the instructions below. There is a bounty that was set up in the ThinkPadTablet forums and any donations should be made through djrblis's blog.

    Root Instructions:
    1. Make sure you have the latest ADB drivers installed on your PC, and that your device is in USB Debugging mode. More detailed instructions for this are available here.
    2. Download the root exploit here.
    3. Make sure your Thinkpad is connected to your PC via USB, is turned on, and has the screen unlocked.
    4. Extract the entire zipfile, and run

    Have you rooted your TPT? I think I am going to wait for now. I have been using LauncherPro and I feel like things are a little smoother now.

    Wonder if I should try this on ICS?

    I've been out of the loop for a month or so due to the family and my tendon pulling so I have not caught up on whether ICS finally came to the US version of the Thinkpad. I know the overseas versions got it and a few folks have complained about it.
    I think its time for me to get back over there and see whats up.
