The iPhone Dev Team has released redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta with the ability to jailbreak the iPhone 3G with Apple's latest mobile operating system, iPhone OS 4 Beta 1. Videos of a working jailbreak solution were on youtube within 24 hours of Apple announcing the new update last week, but many believed that the public would have to wait until June to see a jailbreak tool.
The annual Pwn2Own hacking contest is coming up next month. At the event, competitors will be given the opportunity to win cash prizes totaling $15,000 for anyone who can successfully compromise the security and take control of an iPhone, BlackBerry Bold, Droid and Nokia device. The competition will start on March 24 at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Apple may be taking their fight against jailbreaking to a new level, banning the AppleID of hackers who have played key roles in the efforts of the jailbreaking community. Sherif Hashim and iH8sn0w, who individuals who recently found exploits for jailbreaking, are both saying that they can no longer access the App Store, and trying prompts a message saying their Apple ID has been "disabled for security reasons."
An individual by the name of Sherif Hashim has found a security flaw that makes it possible to unlock iPhone OS 3.1.3's baseband (05.12.01). The exploit has been confirmed to work by the iPhone Dev Team's MuscleNerd. The ability to unlock the 5.12.01 baseband in the OS 3.1.3 update will solve a lot of problems. It's great news for those who had unlocked iPhones but accidentally updated their baseband and made it indefinately broke the unlock. A release date is being left up to the Dev Team for whenever they think it's ready.
The iPhone Dev Team has released a version of the PwnageTool for the 3.1.3 firmware update on iPhones and iPod touches. The new update creates several complications that may prove too much for many users, but updating the new firmware will solve a problem many have had with inaccurate battery percentage displaying. As always, they have several rules to follow in order to ensure that you do more good than harm, and hopefully avoid permanently breaking your ability to unlock.
Thanks to the bravery of a few iPhone and iPod touch owners, the Dev Team can now confirm that the latest version of redsn0w for OS 3.1.2 also works on today's 3.1.3 update on the iPhone, iPhone 3G, or first-generation iPod touch. It does not work on the iPhone 3GS, nor second and third generation iPod touches.
The iPhone Dev Team has (finally) updated redsn0w to support the iPhone 3.1.2 firmware. While it still requires you to tether the device to a computer running redsn0w every time you want to reboot or so much as look at your late-model iPhone or iPod touch, it does let you jailbreak it without needing the PwnageTool. It also offers custom logos and verbose boot, unlike blackra1n (though blackra1n does not require you to tether).
The iPhone Dev Team has released the Redsn0w beta version 0.9b3. The update is able to jailbreak OS version 3.1.2, but unfortunately still won't jailbreak the third gen iPod touch. Newer iPhones with the new bootrom (iPhones purchased after the 40th week of last year) will still have to be tethered to a computer running redsn0w in order to be jailbroken, as well as every time you want to reboot. It's pretty inconvenient if you just want to jailbreak for the sake of jailbreaking, given that Blackra1n doesn't have those limitations.
Customers of the controversial unlocking service iPhoneUnlockUK.com received unexpected emails earlier today informing them that the company was guilty of using unlicensed software and that their personal details, including numerous email and physical addresses had been compromised. The hackers were discovered to have broken in to iPhoneUnlockUK's web servers back in February, where they gained access to the personal information of several users who had illegally unlocked their iPhones.
