Bam, bam, bam. All you hear is one man’s desperate shots against the solid forces of the futuristic robots. Revolt, finally making its way into the app store after months and months of anticipation. In a technocratic world taking place some years from present day, one man, Guy, fights against
In a post earlier today on their blog, the Dev Team announced that they are releasing a public beta version of redsn0w, their simplified jailbreak for the iPod touch 2G. It currently runs in the command line only, but is being added to their GUI applications and will be released "sometime soon". You can download the redsn0w beta from Redsn0w.com.
The iPhone Dev Team has released the first full jailbreak for the iPod Touch 2G. The hack exploits a "fatal flaw in [the] bootrom that means you will always be able to pwn these devices no matter what firmware updates come along." Sounds good to us. The patch for transforming the tethered jailbreak into an untethered one is available here. It has not yet been built into QuickPwn or the Pwnage Tool. More information about the flaw being exploited is available here. Thanks, Sammy!
MuscleNerd has confirmed over Twitter that, as they suspected, 2.2.1 does in fact break the "injection hole" that project yellowsn0w uses to modify the firmware to unlock the device for use on any carrier. He posted a video explaining the situation on Qik.
The Dev Team has updated their blog again with some tips for those of you trying to use yellowsn0w to unlock your iPhone 3G. For starters, you'll need to update to baseband 02.28.00, by updating through iTunes and using QwickPwn to activate, etc. They also write about a known problem with the hack involving SIM cards with the SIM Toolkit application menus. You can read more about it at their blog.
The iPhone Dev Team has officially released their 3G unlock, code-named yellowsn0w, to the Cydia app installer, which if not already available, should be available for download as soon as they get their repository in order. They also explained the message from earlier today. Interestingly, the unlock is not only able to unlock the latest firmware build, but requires it to work.
The iPhone Dev Team is set to release the results of their yellowsn0w project, a soft unlock for the iPhone 3G, on
New Year's Day New Year's Eve. Word is going around that it will be available for installation through Cydia. In the meantime, the team has posted a cryptic message to keep our minds occupied.
The Dev Team recently met at a 25C3 conference where they gave a presentation on the inner structure of the iPhone platform, its security measures, and how they circumvented them. You can check out the hour-long video of the slide show being presented by one of the members after the break.
The 2.2 Software Update for the iPhone (and one for the iPod touch too) was released late last night, and from what we've seen it looks pretty awesome (more on that to come), but those of you who are hoping to unlock your iPhone 3G should be cautious. The Dev Team warns on their blog that updating to 2.2 will seriously reduce your chances of being able to unlock that iPhone any time soon.
The iPhone Dev Team announced in another post on their blog that they have gotten their hands on the latest version of the iPhone 2.2 Software beta that was released to developers last week, and they've successfully jailbroken and unlocked it on a first gen device. (Screenshot after the break.)
