We’ve been hearing reports that Comex, that legendary jailbreak hacker, has discovered another PDF exploit within iOS 5 that could allow for another userland jailbreak, such as JailbreakMe.
The iPhone-Dev team have updated Redsn0w to Jailbreak iOS 5 (Developer release) on a number of iDevices. This Jailbreak is a tethered one and is not a carrier unlock.
Less than 24 hours after the iOS 5 Developer Beta was unleashed, it was successfully jail broken. Ordinarily, this would be good news, except that our source reports that this is a tethered jailbreak, and additionally, hopes of an untethered jailbreak seem to have been crushed by a recent discovery.
Less than 24 hours after the developer release of iOS 5 hit the streets, MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has JailBreaked iOS 5.
Apple has hired iPhone hacker, Peter Hajas, presumably for his work on MobileNotifier, a refreshing update to the painfully annoying notification system iOS currently offers.
The iPad 3G has allegedly been hacked to make and receive calls and SMS messages. This hack basically turns the iPad into a giant iPhone. Checkout the video inside this post for more info.
The Chronic Dev Team have been working hard at cracking the iPad 2 since its release. According to the team, the jailbreak is coming along nicely, and it seems that they have finally reached a point where a jailbreak is close at hand.
We reported yesterday that the new iOS version, 4.3.3, is still vulnerable to the untethered jailbreak that the iPhone Dev-Team released for the previous iOS version. Dev-Team released the updated jailbreak tools today.
According to a tweet from Comex, Apple’s just-released update that addresses location tracking on iOS is still vulnerable to the latest untethered jailbreak, which comes as something of a surprise.
It’s a good day for Jailbreakers. The Infini Dev Team is working on an alternative jailbreak app store called Lima – but what’s really interesting about it is how it works – as a web app through Safari, not requiring a front-end like Cydia.
Those of you still waiting for an iPad 2 jailbreak are in luck – Geohot has accepted a challenge from p0sixninja to see who can dump the iPad 2 bootrom first. This is a demanding and time-consuming task, but rest assured – if anyone can do it, these two can.
Ever wondered why you should JailBreak your iPhone? Robert Scoble talked to Jay Freeman, the man behind Cydia, about why people should consider JailBreaking their iPhone and demonstrates some exclusive apps available only at Cydia.
Cydia users were left in the dark for three and a half days as access to the Jailbreak apps directory was restricted by an outage at Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing service. Normal service has since resumed.
The wait is finally over! Ultrasn0w 1.2.2 was today released by the iPhone Dev Team. This update allows you to unlock iOS 4.3.2 on iPhone 4 AND on on iPhone 3GS.
