    Hey all...


    With all the heated debates and exclusive rumors doing the rounds, this particular aspect was given a complete miss.

    So let's start...how far have we come in WP7 that we need to evolve in WP8 when it comes to jailbreaking? I mean..how much have we achieved??

    Are any devs working towards a successful jailbreak ??

    well, IIRC, nowhere is the answer

    ok that's not fair, in terms of gaining high level of access we've gotten pretty far, almost full control over the phone "can" be achieved IF you can gain access to it in the first place

    every unofficial dev unlock all interop/full unlocks have only been achieved because the manufacture buggered up their software and allowed access to the system with high than normal privileges.

    The only other way around the OS is to use a custom bootloader and install custom roms, again, this is tied to the manufacture

    So in short, there is currently no way that I am aware of, of cracking the OS WITHOUT using a, exploit from a third party. no exploit no interop/full unlock, limited Dev unlock

    The OS is tighter than a ducks arse....at the moment!

    please correct me if I am wrong.

    The terms "jiailbreak" and "root" are pretty synonymous with gain root permissions to the OS's file system. It allows you to do things that aren't necessarily baked into the OS. For windows phone, a great example would be tweaking texts tones so that they can be applied to individual users (ie, different people on your contacts list have different text tones).

    WP8 got some added security updates, such as the ability to change the OEM Marketplace with an XAP file was patched. As always, if the userbase grows in 8, we could see some real jailbreaks coming.

    I don't see a purpose as most of the good apps on WP7/8 are free. Besides, it's always great to support the devs so they can make more great titles for you to enjoy!

    If you want to jailbreak for the customization, I don't see a problem with that.

    I only want to backup my app data such as game saves. I only want root access.
