Hacker PsychoTea Has Released First Beta Of An Apple Watch Jailbreak To Developers

We know that there are plenty of jailbreak tools for iDevice users to choose from, but we have never really seen one for the Apple Watch since it first debuted in 2015. And a good news is that iOS developer PsychoTea has released first beta of an Apple Watch jailbreak to GitHub last Friday, called OverCl0ck.

The jailbreak tool is an early prototype but it could potentially change how users interact with the best-selling wearable device. Although no further details about OverCl0ck, but we do know that it supports watchOS 3 and that it utilizes Seguza’s V0rtex kernel exploit to work its magic.

As for the device compatibility or if the tool even works, PsychoTea admits that he isn't entirely sure yet. So with that being said, it might ended up only works on specific Apple Watch models that with watchOS 3, of course, Series 3 won't work because it ships with watchOS 4.

OverCl0ck could be a way for curious developers to tinker with watchOS and discover new and exciting ways to customize the user experience. However, it's important to note that it's not intended for average or novice jailbreakers to use in its current form.

Moreover, PsychoTea said that he could develop some sort of package manager for install Apple Watch-based tweaks. something just like Cydia in many ways but on a much smaller scale. It's not clear if the tool will become the next big thing or that it will support future watchOS versions.
