I went to JailbreakCon full of good intentions. I was going to live tweet the event, I was going to write posts about every speak, and I was going to interview as many speakers as I could. As it turned out, I did none of that. Instead, I soaked in as much as I could from everyone around me. I did what I hadn’t done for a long time: I socialized!
When I say that I socialized, I’m not saying that I pretended to be friends with some people I mostly knew on Twitter. No, I actually lived with these people for three days, learned about their lives, their habits, and their personality. I learned about the real “them”, not the image they sometimes give of them on Twitter or IRC.
This is the story of my three days at the epicenter of the jailbreak community. You won’t learn anything here about the iOS 6 jailbreak, because what happens at JailbreakCon stays at JailbreakCon, but hopefully, you will get a glimpse a the other side of the jailbreak community… Read More

Those that find themselves in this situation are now patiently waiting for a jailbreak to be released.
Though there is definitely encouraging news on the iOS 6 jailbreak front, an untethered jailbreak as yet to be released. Pouring some cold water on everybody’s hope, iOS hacker pod2g confirmed on Twitter today that he is not working on a jailbreak for iOS 6… Read More

Last week, infamous iOS hacker pod2g released a report regarding a new security flaw he discovered in Apple’s mobile software. The exploit allows for SMS spoofing, and could be used for malicious purposes.
The following day, Apple issued a statement on the texting bug, saying that it was a problem that all manufacturers had to deal with. But according to a new report, that may not be the case… Read More

A quick note for our readers that have been patiently waiting for a jailbreak for the Apple TV third generation. According to a recent tweet by my fellow countryman and iOS hacker extraordinaire Pod2g, no one is currently working on a jailbreak for the Apple TV 3.
This doesn’t really come as a surprise. The Apple TV has always been the iOS device with the least amount of attention from jailbreak hackers, likely because it is much less exciting than the iPhone or iPad… Read More

Yesterday, we showed you part one of the Dream Team’s talk at this year’s Hack In The Box conference. The section covered the exploits that were used in Corona, and other A4 jailbreak details.

Thanks to JailbreakCon’s Craig Fox, we get to see what the guys who brought us the Absinthe untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 look like… Read More
