Circumventing Windows RT

A hacker named “clrokr” discusses a vulnerability that allow users to run unsigned code on Windows RT, going on to claim that “Windows RT is not in any way reduced in functionality. It’s a clean port, and a good one.” Basically, MS has created an “artificial incompatibility” with Windows 8 software on RT devices. Sounds as if this, may someday lead to a loader for x86, or “incompatible” software on RT devices, and possibly apps on Windows 8.

Update:
Arstechnica has more details here, and discusses why this wont lead to a jailbreak anytime soon.
