You can use those links for download recovery image:

For creating USB recovery disk (US version) I used this tool from the above post.

Before you start anything create a recovery USB from your working surface... that could be useful!!
Writing down windows product key could be useful as well....

When you'll have everything ready just follow those steps (I used them and it worked for me):
- go to Recovery and Advanced restart.
- choose start from USB.
- After Surface restart go to Advance and refresh your surface completely with re-partition (When Surface will ask you about recovery key just skip that step)

Good luck!

Your question provides no useful information at all and hence will be ignored.

With the low effort into the question I shall put a low effort into my answer and quote myself from a question on a robotics forum
Doesnt matter that the question I responded too has nothing to do with jailbreaking, the principle is the same.

It could have a flat battery, run out of fuel, fuel line severed even, maybe the distributor cap was loose or the timing belt had some slack in it. Anything. There would be no way for you to know what was causing the engine to not start with the information I provided. The same applies to you here.

Wiring diagrams and code are required. We don't know what you have done nor what "it dont work" is meant to mean.

Oh, for the skoda, the actual switch that detects the key being rotated in the ignition barrel had worn out.



In your case I suspect timer conflict or incorrect wiring.

I hate people who ask a question and then reply "nevermind I figured it out" without telling us HOW they figured out.

No videos that I am aware of, really. The basics are really simple, though:

Windows RT is just like normal Windows, except that
A) It's compiled for ARM, not x86 or x64.
B) It has kernel-mode validation which prevents launching programs or loading libraries unless either the binary has a Microsoft signature, or the program runs in a sandbox.
C) All devices which come with RT have mandatory Secure Boot, which prevents us from messing with the bootloader very much (for example, enabling kernel debug) or running any other OS on the devices.

The first is not really a problem; it just means that most existing Windows programs can't work unless re-compiled. .NET programs work un-modified. Java/Python/Ruby/Perl/PHP/whatever programs work as long as we have a working runtime for them. There's also a dynamic recompilation layer that somebody wrote, but it's very slow and not fully compatible.

The second is the biggest issue for most of us. The signature checks can be disabled via a finding a single kernel-mode memory write (this is how the jailbreak for 8.0 works) but without the ability to load our own drivers, or even to easily run third-party code as Admin, it's hard. 8.1 includes a bunch of extra checks to make it even *harder* (because really, that's what this OS needed... *more* customer-unfriendly lockdown!)

The third is an interesting problem in its own right, although most of us are fine running Windows (if we wanted Android, there are lots of options...) and just want a way to get past the signature checks. That would be relatively easy if not for Secure Boot preventing us from modifying the kernel itself, though...

Hi. Thanks for making this jailbreak available for 8.0. Is there any chance to have something for 8.1? I use my Surface tablet a lot when I work remotely and would like to use some programs that work under x86 windows platform.
RT really lacks good software.

Thanks.
