Gesendet von meinem GT-I9100
All the working exploits I know of (and I'm following this project closely, though my actual hacking efforts are focused on WP8 right now) either too unstable (bloody PatchGuard BS...) or are too sensitive (not safe to release publicly, at this time, for one reason or another). If Microsoft continues this anti-owner policy of denying us the ability to control what happens on our own devices and nothing better comes up, it's possible that something in the latter category will see the light of day, but in that case MS would probably patch it quickly.
The first jailbreak was a lovely piece of work; requiring user interaction but not onerous or confusing, stable (once the initial issues were resolved), harmless to the OS itself (cleared at reboot), and exploiting what is only in a very technical sense a security vulnerability (the boundary between user-mode Admin and kernel-mode had never really mattered before except as a "don't break anything by accident" safeguard). At this point, it looks likely that some of those features are not going to make it into the 8.1 jailbreak. People are still making progress (though seriously, it's the holidays; folks will be busy with other things), and if it were absolutely vital to release a jailbreak tomorrow, we could, but it is not ready for public release yet!
Don't forget we are in a developer forum. Everyone here is aware (or should be) of any possible effect of applying a patch or modifying a working OS environment. Not releasing a half-working solution publicly, dramatically reduces the chances of that solution to become the final solution by means of cooperation of other valued developers.
Acting this way, people having the solution in their hands, are acting just like MS when they think they are protecting us when they deny us the ability to choose what is useful or not for our devices.
And I say this with the utmost respect for you.
But we are going severely OT here....
Do you guys still believe in 8.1 jailbreak on anytime soon? I have stopped a while ago. Myriachan doesn't show us anything beside she's idea, and it seems that nobody else is think of working on that. Two weeks ago I have decided to upgrade to 8.1 and that was good move. Benefits from jailbreaked device is anyway not so big because lot's of program doesn't work anyway. But today I have decided to sold my Surface and give a chance to Asus T100. Surface is great device and I love it, I love it's design, touch cover, magnesium connectors (for keyboard and charger) but for today Windows RT without desktop apps and x86 compatibility is worth almost nothing. If Surface had x86 atom processor (baytrail would be nice) then it would be best tablet on the market ever. And I hope for that and will be waiting. Cheers and good luck with the jailbreak.
