In case you were wondering, no one is working on an Apple TV 3 jailbreak

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…

Watch part 2 of the Dream Team’s HITB talk

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.

Part two of the talk went live today, and in our opinion it’s much more interesting. In it, the Team discusses the A5 jailbreak, and throws in a nice little ‘one more thing’ announcement at the end…

Pod2g adds iPad 3,3 support to Absinthe, as 5.1.1 jailbreak release nears

For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with the latest jailbreak news, let me get you up to speed. Earlier this week, we learned that we could see the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak drop as early as this week. We even saw a video of it in action.

There’s a new jailbreak in town, but it’s not the one you’ve been waiting for

I highly debated whether or not to post this, but after some going back and forth, I decided that it was for the best to shed some light on this subject in an attempt to cut down on confusion.

Apparently there is a new jailbreak tool “available” (you’ll see why I used quotes in a second) that allows you to perform an untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 for A4 devices.

The tool is called VulnDisco Mobile 1.7, and it is a commercial product that takes advantage of the existing RedSn0w 5.1.1 tethered jailbreak to install a custom bundle for an untethered jailbreak.

While I’ve yet to find any details on how much the jailbreak will cost in total, in all likelihood it will set you back much more than the cost of an iOS device itself. That’s because this jailbreak is not a standalone product, but it’s an add-on to a larger product created by a company named Immunity.

While the average user won’t have the necessary resources to access this jailbreak at all, there are still some lingering concerns surrounding its release. Check inside for the full story…

How to donate to the people behind the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak

Let’s be real. The folks behind such projects as the upcoming iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak put in some major work, and aren’t compensated beyond what they receive in donations.

In the various posts that we’ve created on the subject of the upcoming jailbreak, we’ve seen a host of generous comments asking where and how to donate.

MuscleNerd recently revealed some additional information about the upcoming iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, and with it, he included a link that appreciative people could use to donate.

The link was in the prior post, but it kind of got buried along with the other information. For that reason we thought a dedicated post was warranted highlighting the opportunity to donate to the team as a means to compensate for their time and effort.
