When it comes to hacking our phones, Android and iOS are quite popular either by rooting or jailbreaking, and while there are options out there for Windows Phone users, it is not as commonplace, but who knows, perhaps down the line Windows Phone could get popular enough where hearing about an upcoming jailbreak could be worth looking forward to! In any case if you’re the proud owner of a Nokia Lumia 920 and you were looking for a way to jailbreak your device, you’re sort of in luck as a group of Chinese hackers have recently posted a video in which they claim to have jailbroken the handset.

As it stands the aim of this jailbreak is to create a Cydia-like store, except for Windows Phone, in which apps that might not necessarily be approved by Microsoft will be able to be downloaded and purchased. This does not necessarily encourage piracy but as we have seen in the past for iOS and Android, piracy of apps is inevitable so we guess it’s up to the curators to help keep it in check. The hackers have not posted a guide yet on how to jailbreak the Lumia 920, but the video above certainly shows some evidence that a jailbreak has been achieved. We might see a guide released later but for now, you can check out the video above for more details.
