  • Windows on ARMWindows RT is a sort of unique member of the Microsoft family of operating systems. It’s Windows, but it’s not.

  • Windows on ARMA month ago, I wrote about why I'm sticking with the Surface RT over the Surface Pro (see here for previous article). Today I'm going to reiterate that stance and show you why Windows RT is an even more powerful operating system than we give it credit for, and is a solid investment for anyone. After all, at its core, Windows RT is still Windows. It operates and functions exactly like Windows 8 does. Welcome to Part 1 of our hacking journals and tutorial.

  • Windows on ARMStarting out as a rookie among veterans, in a matter of months Windows RT has transformed into an exciting and intriguing alternative to established tablet operating systems. The trigger for the frankly unexpected makeover is the jailbreak which allows enthusiasts to run unsigned apps on their Windows RT-based devices -- there's even an automated toolwhich makes modding a breeze. If you think that is not good enough and you still need or want your old apps, a developer has released a tool that allows legacy programs to run on Windows RT.

  • Windows on ARMThis is XDA Developers, and we like our devices a certain way. We like them unlocked, rooted, and free to do with as we please. However, very few devices are ever released in this condition. Thus, our large community of dedicated developers figure out a way to do it. After all, it's happened again and again and again.

  • Windows on ARMPart of what sets Windows RT apart from Android, iOS, and other mobile operating systems is that it's basically a full-fledged desktop operating system. Under the hood, it's pretty much the same OS as Windows 8. It's just designed to run on devices with ARM-based chips instead of x86 processors.

  • Windows on ARMJust recently, we learned about a way to run non-Windows Store apps on a Windows RT device via a circumvention method that requires tinkering with the portion of the RAM that instructs Windows RT on whether it should run unsigned code or signed code.

  • Windows on ARMThanks to a new tool, it takes only 20 seconds to jailbreak Windows RT. In other Microsoft news: Samsung says no to making a Windows RT device. Teens say Apple is done, Surface and Galaxy are cool. Former Microsoft executives launch online shop for sex toys.

  • Windows on ARMJailbreaking Windows RT just got easy. Merely days after a complicated method to run unsigned apps on Microsoft's tablet operating system was uncovered, there is now an automated method available, dubbed RT Jailbreak Tool. No more messing around with debuggers and assembers.

  • Windows on ARMReports from earlier in the week suggested that Windows RT had been "jailbroken" by hackers, an event I ignored because the outcome was so obvious. And, as expected, Microsoft has confirmed the hack and will simply fix it in a pending update. But why does everyone take this stuff so seriously?
