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.

I got jailbroken 8.0 and untouched 8.1 in a dual boot configuration. If the value of jailbreak is not enough for you, then don't think that others' value is the same. For me its a HUDGE Advantage in 8.0 JB and I used everyday for a lot of different purposes. And I'm very thankful for that.
8.1 is pretty to Play around with and enjoy some new apps, but it cannot reach the functionality of the 8.0JB, which substitudes my Laptop in every way, except for playing x86-multiplayer games. If I understood you correctly, I think your post got a lack of respect. If not, then ignore my last sentence.

Blade, I think you do not understood me because I have a lot of respect for this forum and all of xda-developers members. As you can see Im here not from yesterday but for very long time, when almost nobody knows what smartphone is (there was a Pocket PC branding then yet). My point was of course only my opinion. I agree that 8.0 jailbreak is a huge advantage but it's still not final x86 emulation (even after about 12 months after release) and because of that there is a lot of programs that doesn't work. Even such basic as Total Commander which I use daily on my laptop and can't live without it. I know there is a port of Far Commander (? not sure the name) but it looks like 20 years old Norton Commander and I can't use it, really. Most of the working programs was not useful for me, also these which was compiled for arm. Once again I have a lot of respect and Im thankful to mamaich, netham45 and all other developers but I have decided to not staying with Surface RT anytime more and will wait for Surface with atom processor And in the mean time I have just bought Asus T100 which suites me best for now, even without superb microsoft touch cover

Ahhh ok, sorry for missunderstanding you. Last time i used Norton Commander, it was on Novel Dos 7 with a 486 DX-40, where all others used MS Dos xD
I must admit, that I would be more happy with a Surface pro and a real Windows 8 / 8.1 to completely substitude my Laptop, but the RT was a gift of a friend and i appreciate it. And with the amazing work here in this Forum RT is actually become very usefull for me

For what it's worth, @Topogigi, I have suggested that one of the working jailbreak hacks which exists right now might be worth releasing, for reasons much like you say. However, it is not my work and it would not be ethical of me to release it against the author's desire. Besides, I can see the validity of the author's arguments as well. My point of view probably differs from that of many people, because I stuck to 8.0 and therefore can use the existing hack without feeling the urgency to release a new one, but trust me when I say that there are also valid arguments against releasing it at this time. I am concerned about the loss of usefulness of peoples' tablets, and about the decline in the population of people working to make RT more useful, but you are still asking more than you know. This is not like the original jailbreak, where people took an awkward and unstable hack and made it user-friendly and reliable. The risk of self-harm is actually relatively mild; I personally would be more concerned about risk to the entire Windows ecosystem if this were released prematurely. The version being developed for release isn't even based on that hack; it's too risky.

I tried to install the hack using 1.20 version but it doesn't work. It simply hangs and doesn't do anything. But the 1.13a works. Sorry for sounding so stupid, but is it okay to use the 1,13a instead the 1.20?

If it works, roll with it.

I still use 1.13a myself. It never stopped working so I've never felt the need update...

Awesome, thanks. After all upgrades, 1.20 worked but it takes longer than 1.13a. So, I will stay with this one.
