In case you didn’t know, satellite provider DirecTV recently updated its iPad app with the ability to stream live TV. Customers can stream a selection of channels on the iPad when connected to the same home network as the DirecTV HD DVR.
Like Time Warner, DirecTV has blocked streaming access to users on jailbroken iDevices. A jailbreak patch has been released to fix the block… Read More

If you may recall, with the release of the long awaited JailbreakMe 3.0 for iOS 4.3.3, literally 10 days later Apple patched the clever PDF exploit in iOS 4.3.4. The security exploit could be triggered by viewing a maliciously crafted PDF file which may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.
While the main reason Apple patched the exploit was to stop the use of JailbreakMe, it can also be a security concern. A few days later, Apple released another iOS software update, iOS 4.3.5. Apple released this update to patch the certificate validation vulnerability.
If you love customizing your iDevice to the fullest, you’ve probably already jailbroken, unless you didn’t update by accident or purchase your iDevice after Apple stopped signing iOS 4.3.3. Unfortunately, while not updating to the latest software may preserve your jailbreak, you may also be at risk from the same vulnerability… Read More

JailbreakMe 3.0 has garnered some serious attention over the last 48 hours. The last report we heard was that the site had been visited over a million times, and the PDF exploit had been downloaded over 500,000 times.
The exploit must have also grabbed the attention of Germany’s Information Security team, because the group just issued a country-wide warning for all iOS products. The Mobile Safari vulnerability exposed by Comex in his new jailbreak tool has really made some folks nervous… Read More

Now that you are finally able to hack Apple’s latest tablet with JailbreakMe 3.0, what’s your next move? For starters, you may want to consider closing that hole that Comex’s exploit used to break into your iDevice. Think about this:
JailbreakMe 3.0 is extremely easy to use. You simply navigate to a website on your iDevice, and within a few screen taps you’re jailbroken. But if Comex can design web software that can gain root-level access to your iDevice so easily, why couldn’t someone else? Read More

When Apple announced iOS 5 a few weeks ago, there was some speculation that its hundreds of new features would deter a lot of folks from jailbreaking . In fact, iOS 5 was thought by some to be a jailbreak killer.
While it doesn’t look like the promise of new features has phased the jailbreak community, there are some things in iOS 5 that are troubling. The Dev Team recently posted a report on some things they are seeing in iOS 5 that are making them nervous… Read More

In my previous post today I was telling you the Dev Team was working on a patch for the PDF exploit found in iOS and not fixed by Apple on older iPhones and iTouch. The PDF Patch has been released in Cydia for free and you can install it now.
PDF Patch will fix the security hole that was used by JailbreakMe and could potentially be used to inject malicious softwares on your device.
If you have updated your iDevice to 4.0.2, there is no point using this patch. However, if you’re still on an older iPhone 2G or iPod Touch 1G, or if you don’t want to update to 4.0.2, then this patch will be for you.
