The Dev Team has posted a few clues about the meaning of their mysterious new website, redsn0w.com. As suspected, they hint that it is related to a "secret" project they are working on. MuscleNerd admitted that the speculation that redsn0w has something to do with the iPod Touch 2G is partly correct, but offered no information on if it was a jailbreak or not.
We all know about Yellowsn0w.com, the website set up by the Dev Team for their iPhone 3G unlock, but a new website has popped up that is causing some confusion. On the official iPhone_dev twitter, they tweeted a URL to a new website, Redsn0w.com, causing us to suspect that they have more on the way.
"Jody Sanders", the fool caught trying to pass the Dev Team's work off as his own and sell copies of it for his own profit, is at it again. He is now offering copies of an edited version of QuickPwn for sale at £19.99 per copy, and promises to have Yellowsn0w as well. Needless to say, the Dev Team does not approve.
Some very good news from the Dev Team earlier today: they now have persistent nucleus tasks running on an iPhone 3G. What does this mean, you ask? Well, if you're looking for a technical explanation, it means they can now spawn background tasks. If you're a normal person, you just need to know that this means they are very, very close to a software unlock for the iPhone 3G. They no longer have any foreseeable obstacles. Very good news indeed. Video after the break.
The iPhone Dev Team has updated their blog concerning the predicted 2.2 software update for the iPhone and iPod touch, reminding everyone that if you're concerned about being able to jailbreak, and especially unlock, your iPhone, then it is strongly suggested that you hold off on installing the update until they give the all clear.
The iPhone Dev Team revealed early Sunday morning that they have made a crucial breakthrough in the process of unlocking the iPhone 3G. They posted a video on their blog demonstrating them hacking the baseband processor of an iPhone 3G.
The Dev Team updated their blog about their latest progress on unlocking the iPhone 3G. Earlier this week they managed to modify an iPhone 3G's baseband, and despite failing the integrity check, it still continued to run. While being able to run modified baseband code is a big achievement, they still don't know how close they might be to fully unlocking the device. They posted this video of a 3G running the modified code here.
Not long after Apple started testing of version 2.2 of the iPhone software, the iPhone Dev Team has already gotten their hands on it. They've managed to uncover a few interesting details on the new software, the most important being that 2.2 still contains the hardware that is already vulnerable to the pwnage exploit, meaning that a new Pwnage Tool should work.
