Dingleberry 3.01 Released - Hulu Enabler and Downgrading!

I should also mention right up front that it now has mac support, for those of us who don't have a PC.

Update: There is now also a linux version for us uber dorks! Also, if HuluBerry wasn't working for you with 3.0, 3.01 (available now) probably fixes that.

Those of us who have been following the whats-what on Playbook tweaking are no doubt familiar with Dingleberry, the Playbook rooting tool. It looks like Chris Wade (and it looks like http://bnxtreme.com) have finally gotten Dingleberry 3.01 out to us (at least a Release Candidate of it).

Keep reading for the full changelog and more info.

Here's a full list of the changes (courtesy of BNXtreme):

  • Displays a notification on Playbook once the exploit has been delivered successfully.
  • Prevents 'erroring out', sudden black screen and doubt over whether exploit succeeded.
  • Removed backup and restore requirement.
  • Removed reboot requirement after Dingle.
  • Removed File Sharing, Wifi Sharing and Password Protect settings requirement.
  • Removes 'host' requirement on SSH. You can SSH from any IP.
  • Removes playbook firewall on startup (eg. localbar, pbconnect).
  • New scp/ssh code to allow jailbreak to work faster, bug-free with less dependencies.
  • Fixed known_hosts openssh issue in Dingle SSH.
  • UI fixes and overhaul (size, shape, clicks).
  • Root works *every* time without hammering Playbook.
  • Huluberry browser added. Allows viewing Hulu.
  • Downgrade feature added. Allows downgrading to rootable firmware.
  • Fixed bug which required developer mode to be on for BDM, restore or downgrade.

Sounds like a lot of good stuff! Hopefully those features survive the official OS2 drop next month; whether they do or not, I'll be upgrading to the official.

I haven't been able to test it yet (what with downloading it and writing up this quick blog post) but be assured that by the time you read this, I'll be checking out Hulu.

Update: Dingleberry 3.02 is now out :)

Release Notes:

  • New download server (bnxtreme) to replace the old one that wasn't working anymore. Server is no longer hardcoded.
