    Chinese hackers claim to have jailbroken the Nokia Lumia 920 | WMPoweruser

    Don't care what anyone says, I like this news, if true. This could mean extra functionality and tweaking which is always good.

    These 'extra functionality' can cause security and stability issues if not handled well. I hope this doesn't ruin WP architecture.

    This would be a choice if it comes to ffruition. You wouldn't have to do this.

    True. On the bright side, many feature hungry "jailbrakers" from other platforms could now start to consider WP.

    The best part would be possible tweaks, features MS drags their feet on or just down right refuses to implement. Even simple things like a color picker, which annoys me beyond belief that MS has refused to give us this super simple option.

    This is what I see as the biggest advantage. Relatively few users would actually do it. Those that would do it would also know the risks, so it's their problem. I think the biggest issue here is that the purists are alarmed that WP is proved to be exploitable.

    Maybe I'm a little slow this morning but where are these people? None of the comments seem to be of an "alarmed" nature.

    It didn't on iOS. In fact most of the popular JB features on iPhone made it to official os releases.

    Well there a couple right here:

    I actually first typed "disappointed" but before posting I thought maybe "alarmed" would be more accurate. I believe I was mistaken. Basically if this comes to fruition it reduces WP's security advantage.

    Nokia has a patent on jailbreaking phones and will likely sue these hackers for infringement. Yep.

    Well, jail breaking on windows phone might cause Microsoft to be more like Apple. Everyone claims that Apple steals ideas from other companies, but apple mainly steals stuff from the jail breaking community. I was (and still am) an apple user, and I had jailbroke my iPod touch 4g, and saw several tweaks that I liked, and a big handful of features from Jailbreakers came to iOS 7, but back on topic, Microsoft might react negatively just like Apple did and try to sue these hackers. Apple tried to sue jailbreakers, but jail breaking became legal and Apple just lashed back with voids warranty and has to be removed for update. Apple now treats jailbreakers as the little pests and decide to take what they want when they want because jailbreakers can't do anything about it.

    Does this mean the Chinese will eventually help unlock phones that AT&T refuses to unlock? If so, bless them

    I think that this is good for the very few who like to live on the bleeding edge and make the most of their Windows Phone - sure you may as well move to Android if you want customisability but if people like the OS but just want a few extra features why not? Besides, these kind of people are usually such a minority, and most of them would have to know what they are doing anyways so it wouldn't hurt user experience

    This would be awesome to play around with on my old 920. I have the 1020 now so not too bothered if it brick's.
