Samsung Nexus 10 owners can now root their devices with a new ToolKit made available by XDA developers.
This new Toolkit allows Nexus 10 owners to root their tablet and to unlock its bootloader. This will also let them run customized ROMs on the device.
The Toolkit comes with a backup feature where users can dump apps and data on to a computer and then restore them in case anything goes wrong with the Nexus 10.
Nexus 10 owners can find the new ToolKit here.
The Nexus 10 was released by Samsung earlier this month and features one of the most impressive displays available in the tablet market.
It is thinner than Apple's iPad and has a 10.55-inch Super PLS TFT HD display with 4 million pixels.

The Nexus 10 also features a rear 5-megapixel camera capable of capturing videos in high-definition and has a 1.9-megapixel camera in the front.
Customers can purchase the Nexus 10 in two memory capacities including 16GB and 32GB with the possibility of a 64GB model launching next year.
The device runs on a 1.7GHz quad-core powerSVX T-604 GPU with 2GB RAM and comes with Android 4.2, JellyBean pre-installed.
The Nexus 10 also features multi-user support, which allows multiple people to have their own customized settings saved on the tablet at the same time. In order to log in to their account, users can turn on the tablet and tap their photo and they will be able to access their own customized version of their homescreen, apps, email, photos, and storage.
The Samsung Nexus 10 starts at $399 and can be purchased in the Google Play store.
