A prominent member of the hacker community, named Justin Case, has challenged Amazon’s Lab 126 coders with this message published at XDA-Developers:
Open Letter to Lab126/Amazon. Please consider leaving the ‘feature’ BurritoRoot takes advantage of in future firmware. The method we used is very safe, and not abuse-able by malicious applications. Leaving it, will lessen the risks of public disclosure of dangerous alternatives, which lead to warranty returns.
(aka) I have a root for your next release if you fix this, and it isn’t nearly as safe. I am willing to disclose it privately if you agree to leaving the BurritoRoot ‘feature’ intact.
