Thinkpad root has been achieved and released by djrbliss who we all know and love. If you were part of the bounty, please visit his page and thank him with your pledge.

The details are best left in his words, so get the exploit from here: http://vulnfactory.org/blog/2012/01/...inkpad-tablet/

Thanks JCase for being so quick with the recovery for the tablet. Get your recovery image and directions in this thread:

I take 0 credit for any of this, Im just adding a quick reference for people who are still asking who what where when.

Hell no! Its the King of tablets it you actually use it for more then Angrybirds and videos.

Can take a beating = Check
Awesome stylus for notes = Check
Great screen and good performance = Check

Its one of the great mysteries why this tablet isn't the most sold and used tablets on Xda.

and now with root access!: )

I have a Prime and my wife has the ThinkPad. I would say that between the two, the ThinkPad can take the beating for sure and I'm definitely jealous of the stylus, however I would love to keep what I have and just add the stylus ability. Either way, I would definitely agree that the ThinkPad is still a kick-ass tablet.

Congrats on the root all.

You are correct it worked on mine. I had to re-install Super User from the Market and re-install the Terminal program.
