The world of jailbreak is in constant movement and with more reason after the publication of several tools to make it to the latest versions of iOS and Apple TV. Although there are not many advantages that Cydia currently provides, it is important to see the work of hackers in looking for flaws in Apple systems.
The latest news comes from the hand of Ben Sparkes, a hacker known for creating one of the three jailbreaks of iOS 10.x, which has just launched OverCl0ck, the jailberak for Apple Watch, more specifically for watchOS 3. Yes, the project It is collaborative and is available on GitHub.
The OverCl0ck project will go ahead, but it will take
OverCl0ck is the latest project in the jailbreak world for watchOS 3 in which an exploit discovered by Vortex based on the kernel has been used with which the tool can be used in any version of Apple Watch. Of course, the developer warns: “exact compatibility across OS versions and hardware is unknown,”
It is a project with a solid base but it has just started, that is why Ben Sparkes assures that collaboration is necessary so that OverCl0ck can move forward. To do this, the project is located on this GitHub link, where a list of the missing elements to obtain an efficient and functional jailbreak has been drawn up.
The main thing is to test the system in the largest number of different Apple Watch versions with completely different to check the effectiveness of the same and possible errors that may arise to update the application.
The evolution of the tool can be seen in the hacker’s social networks, which relies on OverCl0ck to go ahead with the help of thousands of hackers and developers who want to contribute to it.
In short, OverCl0ck is not an active tool, but a project that has just started and that will culminate with a tool that allows access to all functions of the Apple Watch, the most Cydia style on an iPhone or an iPad.
