Jailbreak Apple Watch in development: waiting?

The jailbreak theme has stopped worrying about the mobile community. Few of us are waiting for the appearance.

the possibility of hacking iOS-firmware. Most likely, this is due to the fact that Apple developers have added all the most popular features to the standard set of options, and the need for hacking simply disappeared by itself. However, we haven't heard much about the Apple Watch jailbreak.

Hacking smart watches from Apple can createnew wave of jail popularity. Bring diversity to the functionality of your smart bracelet - this should not be neglected, I think. It is worth noting that there have already been hacking attempts by some hackers of the watchOS firmware. But none of them ended in success. Or successful attempts were only confirmation that a system can still be hacked. However, so far we have not heard or seen a hint at the release of the public Apple Watch jailbreak tool. But things can change in the future.

Over the past few weeks, Twitter has beenpublished several messages from @ethanpepro, which means that the progress of the Apple Watch jailbreak is clearly underway. It is possible that soon we will have a tool for hacking Apple Watch running watchOS versions 4.0-5.1.2. In some tweets, the hacker notes that his global plans include releasing a full jailbreak with open source and with an orderly installation process. That is, the tool will be able to use not only developers, but also the simple owners of Apple Watch. By the way, the OverCl0ck tool from PsychoTea was previously announced, but only developers could use it.

What will give the opportunity to hack Apple Watch, askyou. In fact, a lot. It will be possible to install various additions or settings, new dials, etc. In short, do not be limited to Apple. As evidence of progress, Ethanpepro shared screenshots of the tpf0 exploit and a video demonstrating the jailbreak process used in its testing.

Another nuance. If you use watches on the watchOS 5.1.3 or 5.2 software, you will not be able to use this tool, as there is no possibility to lower the firmware. But it’s too early to talk about it, you need to wait for the Apple Watch jailbreak.
