Windows So, a rudimentary jailbreak for Windows RT made its way onto the web these past few days. Open source applications were ported right away, and it was confirmed that Windows RT is the full Windows - it's exactly the same as regular Windows, except that it runs on ARM. Microsoft responded to the jailbreak as well.

Most code doesn't self modify


I think you mean most simple applications don't self-modify. Most multimedia-related applications do make use of heavy optimizations where straight-up static translation doesn't work. On a similar note, straight-up translation wouldn't work for 64-bit applications at all.

But sure, I would love to see you prove me wrong, it'd be a very nice tool in the toolbox! Go ahead and explain more in detail of how you'd actually implement such a thing if you feel like it, as off-topic as it may be.
