Windows RT hacked
Windows RT is that kind of Windows, designed to run on ARM chips, and although it still has the classic desktop, no legacy apps can be used, because Microsoft has locked it down to only running apps from the Windows Store. So, as with all locked-down platforms, devs are hard at work on a jailbreak, and they just got a lot closer to a full jailbreak option for Windows RT.
Now, news came that a hacker named Clrokr has found a way to bypass the security protection on Windows RT, and run apps not signed by Microsoft. Clrokr has also found that Windows RT is actually the same as Windows 8.
Definitely, it’s a big step towards a full jailbreak option for Windows RT. Of course, we hope Microsoft comes out with some clarification on the real difference between Windows RT and Windows 8. Because, if Clrokr is right, it’s kind of unacceptable for Microsoft to impose an artificial lockdown on Windows RT.
