The researcher was able to break the Vision Pro headset on the day of the start of sales

February 3, 2024 Researcher Joseph Ravichandran (aka Oxjprx) toldThat he was able to break the Vision Pro headset almost on the day the device went on sale.

Oxjprx said it was able to access the kernel of the operating system and showed screenshots from the headset.

It is noteworthy that in the event of a device failure, the headset switches to transmission of an end-to-end image and displays a warning about the need to remove the device from the head for 30 seconds so that the gadget can reboot correctly.

Theoretically, the developers of the jailbreak for Vision Pro will take care of Oxjprx’s work in the near future.

It is noteworthy that the description of the OS of the code does not indicate visionOS 1.0, but xrOS.

Apple previously banned developers from mentioning augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (XR) in the names of their apps for Vision Pro, and ordered the headset to be labeled as a PC for spatial computing.

Previously, the media found out that the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset has a firmware recovery process similar to what the manufacturer implemented for the Apple Watch and Apple TV. If the firmware of the gadget fails, for example, during a software update, it can be restored using the iPhone.
