Hackers claim to jailbreak Lumia 920 in China.

[embedit snippet=”fluids”]Lumia 920 jailbreaking

While, we may hear the use of term “Jailbreak” a lot in case of iOS, Android is all the way more modifiable. But, Windows Phone OS with its security features have been a hard nut to crack for hackers. Though a report from China now suggests that Lumia 920 jailbreak ahs been accomplished by a hacker and a video has been posted which shows three column of Live Tiles, a feature not available for Lumia 920 with GDR3.

This hack may create an alternate app store in WP platform and work similar to Cydia, which we see on iOS. Again, this may not be for masses but will make Powerusers happy! Also, the hack apparently works via the micro-USB port, and does not require any physical modification to the device.

    I agree. A file manager is much needed in my opinion.

    Thinking of possibilities, an Android app runner would be possible!

  • Let’s see if it actually offers something. If its only for the 3 tiles and some minor customization, the world is better off without it.
    I still doubt if retail devices can be jailbroken.

      Hmmm, it is still just a ‘claim’! If it can really be jailbroken, then lots of good stuff may be possible :).
