The Samsung Galaxy Note treads a land that few have dared, and it seems to be succeeding – count it down as sheer luck, great timing, the right market conditions, or all of it, you cannot write the Galaxy Note off. Slated to hit retail store shelves in the US tomorrow, developers have already succeeded in rooting the device – that is, allowing ordinary folk like you and I access the system files and folders that originally was off limits by Google’s Android team. Those who love rooted devices (the equivalent of jailbreaking on an iPad or iPhone) should look at the Galaxy Note in new light as it is now possible to enjoy this unique smartphone to its full potential. Of course, rooting a device is a double edged sword – it not only opens up a whole new world of apps to run on the device itself, but it also paves an avenue that might see external threats make their mark. Of course, there are also other risks involved such as bricking your device if the rooting process goes awry, not to mention voiding your warranty.
