Google Glass jailbroken
Pic or it didn’t happen

Sementara kebanyakan orang masih membayang-bayangkan bagaimana rupa dari Google Glass, para hacker kaya sudah berhasil me-root Google Glass miliknya.

Yang pertama mengkonfirmasi adalah Liam McLoughlin (@Hexxeh), seorang hacker ChromeOS yang saat ini magang di Google.

Tapi, bukan cuma @Hexxeh, hacker yang berkesempatan untuk mencoba Google Glass, @saurik pun tidak butuh waktu lama untuk menunjukkan bukti Google Glass-nya yang berhasil ia… jailbreak sendiri.

Tapi rupanya, para fandroid tidak senang Saurik menggunakan istilah “jailbreak” untuk Google Glass. LOL.

Jadi sebenarnya Google Glass itu di-rooting atau jailbreak?

Menurut Saurik, dan seperti yang disebutkan oleh Hexxeh, “debug mode” memberikan akses ke ADB, jadi bukan root.

Penjelasan lengkapnya seperti ini:

That lets you flash the device, it doesn’t give you root. To get root from that you need to make a bootable image, which requires a compatible kernel, which you normally pull off the device as root. Thankfully, there is a race condition in the backup/restore mechanism that lets you do a symlink traversal to unlock root adb (by modifying /data/local.prop).

(To be clear, though, this was a known exploit: it is normally done to the Android Settings application, which isn’t present on the Glass, but it turns out that the Glass Logging service also has the right prerequisites to pull off the attack, so I adapted the restore payload. The tweet I posted right after this one made it clear what exploit I was using against what installed package.)
