Jailbroken Surface RT Runs Apple OS
Recent reports indicated that hackers have successfully jailbroken Microsoft's latest Surface RT tablet. Now word's on the street that a hacker has seeded Apple's Rhapsody operating system on a jailbroken Surface RT.
Apple released the Rhapsody operating system in 1998 and the hacker claims that planting Windows 95 in the Surface RT would have been too boring.
"Windows RT Jailbreak Tool Released - now it's pretty straightforward! Well the Windows RT jailbreak works like a charm. Currently running unsigned code," read Steve@stroughtonsmith's twitter post.
The twitter post also says "Booted Apple's Rhapsody in Bochs on jailbroken Microsoft Surface RT, because Windows 95 is too boring."
Microsoft Surface RT launched in October 2012 and is the company's first tablet. Since its launch, the Surface RT has gained reasonable ground in the tablet market. Packed with top-end features the Surface RT is among the most popular Windows-based tablets available in the market.
The Surface RT sports a 10.6-inches TFT capacitive touchscreen with 1366 x 768 pixels resolution and 148 ppi. A Nvidia Tegra 3 T30 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz powers the device.
The tablet measures 10.81 x 6.77 x 0.37 inches and weighs 1.50 pounds. It is available in 32/64GB internal storage options and users can expand the memory to a further 64GB using a microSD card.
At a starting price of $499, the Surface RT is a decent pick for someone looking for a Windows tablet.
