New Samsung Galaxy Tab Firmware Might Block Hacks

Reports claim that Samsung may soon roll out a new firmware update for the Galaxy Tab that will block all jailbreaks, roots and other custom firmware. The new JM6 A, C, and D builds are all planned to prevent unauthorized firmware from running.

Now if this software gets sent to devices this means that not only will the Samsung Galaxy Tab be locked, but it will officially be more restrictive than the iPad. This no doubtedly means no flashing custom ROM’s and not being able to capitalise on rooting the device. Google has always claimed that Android is more open, however this has also lead to manufacturers lock down the hardware as much as they’d like.
