The “Fun Day” is arriving as Chronic Dev Team is working hard to release their first ever all iDevices jailbreak tool named GreenPois0n. It took them a while to release the Greenpois0n jailbreak as it was announced earlier this year but they were never able to push it out as promised.
Chronic Dev Team and their Greenpois0n were even blamed to be fake as they accepted donations but never made a release. Some days ago, they made a strike by revealing a new bootrom exploit named SHAtter Exploit. This achievement means that iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, and iPad are jailbroken for life until Apple introduces hardware change in the devices by replacing the bootrom.
So were you a bit annoyed when Steve Jobs introduced the new HDR features of iOS 4.1 and realized it wouldn't apply to your iPhone 3G or 3GS? Well stop being annoyed because apparently there will be a jailbreak app for that.
BGR highlighted a tweet from iOS developer Will Strafach that states the following:
An unofficial version of PwnageTool is going around the interwebs. This tool will supposedly jailbreak the iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.1. Needless to say that I do not recommend using this since it hasn't been approved by the Dev Team. However this method seems to work according to comments on iSpazio site (in Italian, mind you).
As usual with these crappy releases though, you have to fit in the crazy pre-requisites:
iOS 4.1 came out a couple days ago, and with it came a new baseband update, going from version 01.59.00 to 02.10.04. The baseband is a critical part of the iPhone unlock and UltraSn0w isn't currently compatible with baseband 02.10.04.
Many people are eager to update to iOS 4.1 and try the new features that come with it. Obviously if you rely on a jailbreak/unlock, you should hold on to it. If you don't care about unlocking options at the time but you think you might in the near future, then updating to iOS 4.1 while preserving your baseband is your best bet...
It's always a busy time in the world of iPhone blogging when the iPhone iOS gets an upgrade. Reports are flying high and aiming low about every feature implemented in the newest version of the operating system.
As you know by now iOS 4.1 has brought us Game Center, the social network fix for Apple gamers. So now that the platform is there and you've convinced all your iOS toting friends to add your handle, you may be asking what you're supposed to do without any games. Have no fear, the App Store is here...
Yesterday we reported about the new exploit found by pod2g, and today, MuscleNerd confirmed that it will work with the iPhone 4, the iPad and the new iPod Touch.
This bootrom exploit will require a hardware fix for Apple to prevent future jailbreaks. If you have an iPhone 4 now, that means you'd potentially be able to jailbreak it, no matter what iOS you install on it in the future. Of course at this point it's just theories...
Just when you thought we'd forgotten about the whole iPhone antenna issue, an article on Gizmodo shows us how to check our iPhone reception.
This trick will work for any iPhone rocking the new iOS 4.1 firmware.
Well well well. Here are some good news coming from MuscleNerd and co about a new exploit found by a hacker that goes by the name of pod2g. Apparently, pod2g found a bootrom exploit in iOS 4.0.1.
Why should we care about 4.0.1, I hear you saying? Since it's a bootrom exploit, it means Apple cannot patch the exploit with a software update. The only way to patch the hole would require a hardware modification. In other words, Apple won't be able to prevent us from jailbreaking until the iPhone 5 comes out.
iOS 4.1 is now available for download, and I'm pretty sure some of you will "accidentally" update to 4.1 and will want to downgrade back to iOS 4.0.1, which is the latest jailbreakable and unlockable iOS (at least at the time I'm writing this).
This simple guide and tutorial will show you how to downgrade your iPhone iOS 4.1 to iOS 4.0.2, or 4.0.1, or iOS 4, or any earlier version. The steps are the same no matter what iOS you want to downgrade to.
It's here, folks. iOS 4.1 for iPhone is available for download. The iOS 4.1 software update is the first major update to iOS 4, bringing Game Center, new iTunes features, high dynamic range photography, and more to the iPhone.
To get the latest iOS 4.1 software, simply plug your iPhone in iTunes and search for update, or save it to your computer from our iPhone downloads section.
iOS 4.1 is supposed to ship any minute now. While a new firmware update is always a good thing for those of you who don't jailbreak/unlock, it's a pretty risky move for those of you who do.
As usual before a new iOS update, the Dev Team warns us against the dangers of updating your iPhone to iOS 4.1 if you want to keep your jailbreak, and most importantly your unlock.
That's an interesting tweet that Comex sent out earlier today in reply to someone offering him to donate money when he releases a jailbreak for iOS 4.1. While we were set to believe that Comex would be on top of the iOS 4.1 jailbreak, it seems that we should hold our excitement.
I do believe Comex is working on a 4.1 jailbreak. And if he's not, the tone of his tweet might suggest that someone else has a potential exploit for iOS 4.1 and that indeed the jailbreak will not come from him.
