    ROFL!

    We have root access even before the phone is officially released. :D:D

    When the phone is officially launched, Samsung hopefully release its source code and we'll have access to even more goodies. Perhaps source drivers *crosses fingers*.

    adb root exploit - test

    Does this mean we can possibly cook roms for gingerbread 3.0?

    when it gets released this means we could make 2.1 roms and possibly 2.2 roms.
