April 9, 2012 | Leave a comment(1) Go to comments

Dingleberry is the tool you can use to root or jailbreak Blackberry Playbook, you may be aware that when Dingleberry 3.0 was first released for Mac it required libraries (Qt and OpenSSL) to be installed in order to run properly. Later on a new bundled version of Dingleberry 3.3.3was released, which came with all the required libraries. I have given below the Dingleberry download links for Windows, Mac and Linux versions from the dingleberry.it.

Here are the steps on How to Root / jailbreak Blackberry Playbook

  • Download Dingleberry 3.3.3 For Windows
  • Download Dingleberry 3.3.3 For Mac
  • Download Dingleberry 3.3.3 For Linux

After downloading and opening Dingleberry.exe, you will see the below window

Note: If you are on 1.0.8.6067 or the 2.0.6x beta or higher, you will have to use the Downgrade function before you root, as those versions are not rootable at he moment.
Step 1: Once the window opens, select Continue.Step 2: Connect your PlayBook to your Windows computer using the USB cable and enter the required fields (IP Address and Password) when the Dingleberry application prompts you to.

Step 3: Select the Jailbreak button. After a few minutes, the application will finish the processes involved in jailbreaking your device.

Step 4: Now, in order to gain root, you can just follow the instructions provided by the application.

How to Gain SSH Access
If you want to start using the root for something useful like copying files and do whatever you want.
1. Enable Development Mode on your rooted Playbook and connect to your computer it via USB (or WiFi).
2. Run the Dingleberry and select “Dingle SSH” in the main window.
3. You should now see a screen which prompts you for the device IP and password.
4. Once you enter your information and hit connect, it should say “Running SSH on Playbook” and a Terminal window with a “#” sign should open up (Disregard the warning). If this doesn’t happen, keep trying and make sure you have developer mode enabled and entered the correct IP and password.
5. An rsa file will be created by Dingleberry.
6. At this point you should download a scp client with a GUI (Like CyberDuck for example) in order to access the files on your Playbook
How to Use CyberDuck:
Open Cyberduck and select “Open Connection”. Enter the information as shown in the picture below, but adjust the IP address accordingly. Enter root as your Username in Cyberduck to get full access. This will only work while you are on 4869.
When you click on “Use public key authentication”, you need to browse to the rsa file that was created by Dingleberry (it should be in the same folder as the app).
Then click Allow in the window that pops up warning you about host key mismatch.
Now, if you did everything correct, you should be presented with a window like this:
Congratulations, you are now connected to your Playbook with SCP. At this point, you could install the android market if you would like to.
