RIM to patch vulnerability used by DingleBerry exploit tomorrow!

The folks over Engadget are reporting RIM will release a patch to fix vulnerability used by Dingleberry:

Been awaiting the release of a PlayBook jailbreak with bated breath? Well if you've got Canada's favorite tablet and are rocking Windows, you're in luck as DingleBerry has just gone live. While beta 0.2 of the tool won't re-enable web access to Hulu, the haxors responsible are adamant it'll come in due time, as will a Mac version.

The team pushed up the release schedule as RIM informed them their exploit will be plugged in an update tomorrow -- so we'd skip that OS upgrade if you like being rooted.

Update: RIM has indeed patched the vulnerability in 1.0.8 by pushing a 5mb update. However, the exploit seems to still be available for the 2.0 beta. Also, Chris Wade has reported that he found a way around the new patch via Twitter.
