Android can be rooted and even WP7 can be rooted. But is it possible to root devices running WP8?


It's currently not possible to root a Windows Phone 8 device.

Keep an eye on the XDA forums for further developments.

  • I don't think OP was attempting to start on a discussion if it's theoretically possible to root a WP8 device, but if a working jailbreak is publicly available.

  • I don't think this is the correct place for it as it's a) too advanced for regular phone users and b) will invalidate their phone's warranty Feb 1 '14 at 15:15
