    Disclaimer: This message is the result of the jailbreak @poandsoul authorization before published, poandsoul are not our own team, and it is the depth of team collaboration team. So jailbreak tool is released, whichever team poandsoul, we are responsible for tutorials and reports. poandsoul are busy during this time of repair @ digital tail BUG, ​​jailbreaking process will catch up after his own app is fixed.

    We would like to reiterate POANDSOUL jailbreak vision: to create a Cydia-like app store in WP platform, and resolutely put an end to piracy. Of course, one must not escape tile shot dead and piracy equate. Piracy is a prerequisite for application to produce someone to crack, if only to escape the responsibility placed upon, it is better not to touch themselves and their cracked applications. Jailbreak is a double-edged sword, we can not guarantee that no one went after the jailbreak installed piracy, but we believe that a person who truly loved WP platform is not going to touch even the spread of piracy, cracked applications.

    We are recording after jailbreak using video, video will be announced in the last two days.

    * For non Lumia 920 models can jailbreak released, please wait for a subsequent message. In order to prevent rampant piracy after preliminary jailbreak, jailbreak method does not release in a short time, after the developers that already has a jailbreaked device developed high-privilege app in certain number, the jailbreak will be release. Please known.

    Please click here for pre-FAQ

    (Part of the developer's machine has jailbreak complete, highly privileged software being developed. Jailbreak tutorial released on time, at the time microblogging has expressed very clearly, I hope before questions, please carefully read the micro-blog content. pod2g didn't release his jailbreaking immediately after announcing

    Too lazy to translate, many parts are translated from google translator, and did some fixes on the translation. Anyways, a video of demonstration will be release in few days, I'll update this thread by then.

    FIRST: What does jailbreak mean?
    1: High-privilege apps from third-parties
    including but not limited to:
    File manager, Calls attribution, typing method

    SECOND: Does jailbreak bring negative effects?
    As a developer, @poandsoul thinks that the purpose of jailbreaking is only to build a cydia-like app store, which allows developers to develop add-ons to improve experience of windows phone platform.
    Thus, you can imagine, it will increase the enthusiasm of developers, to created apps that satisfies user's needs.

    Third: How long does it take to jailbreak?

    As I mentioned above, the jailbreak will be released whenever the software is mature enough.

    Hope its true.

    I have been so happy with the interop unlock for Ativ S. I have 0 pirated apps, its not about that. Its about more function. Like now, because of the unlock I have same amount of tiles as the 1520, I can choose any color for accent and send .pdf's via email. I hope more functionality also will come of course. If the 920 is unlocked Im sure more smart people will be looking for solutions.

    Man, I'm sure many people would love to have more control over accent colors and tile arrangement. I know I would... Get on the 1020 shortly after. 😃

    Meh. No thank you, I'm happy with my 920 as it is. I never had any interest in jailbreaking my iPhone and it's no different with my 920.

    I would like to have as many tiles as the 1520 but will this "jailbreak" delete everything thats on my phone? Any other side effects? I know that on iphone you cant get any updates if you jailbroke it, will this be the same for 920?

    Its only a registry value change to enable the extra row of tiles. For this you need to be able to manipulate registry. Samsung Ativ S, which is basically the same device as Lumia 920 has been iterop unlocked. Here you see my today screen:

    No, I didnt have to re-instal anything when I applied the tweaks to my Ativ, I applied only "updates". Also, system updates work. When I applied the tweaks I updated to Developer Preview GDR3. Since then I have updated to the official GDR3 and after to the latest Developer Preview GDR3.

    Also here you can see a nice little app made by WOLF at XDA. The app does many things, one being the ability to change accents. You just go in to the app to change what you want, press save and go to the settings to choose that accent. No reboot even needed. Good things ;)

    Im jealous. So, how is the usability of these tiles? Some say due to very small tiles, it is useless to have those on smaller screens. How is it for you? I wish I can do this to my 1020 lol

    why? without further mods, only deployed apps can do higher-level stuff, and you control them. Most likely, we would get something like root tools to select which apps can escape their sandbox, and nothing would change..

    Not for me. Jail Breaking is one thing but to what end? There is no evidence, empirical or otherwise that this won't be more than what happens on Android 24/7, not paying developers for their work. I want to see that this won't become a portal to all kinds of malware on Windows phone. Not to mention we don't know the identities or motives of the hackers forcing open this OS claiming it does one thing but at the same time giving them unprecedented access to personal information, pass codes, banking information many of us store there all while you marvel at a few additional background colors.

    I know what the OP said won't happen but I know what did happen with both IOS and Android. There is NO evidence that this won't become what happens on WP too. Especially with the number of people that protest the .99 and 1.49 cent price tag on many WP apps.
