Short and sweet was the amount of time it took the iPhone Dev-Team to jailbreak iOS 4, at least as far the previous generation of Apple iHardware is concerned. Adding to yesterday’s release of redsn0w beta, PwnageTool 4.0 was set free this afternoon and promises to jailbreak/hacktivate devices provided a specific set of criteria are met. If you want to get really fancy, you can also use a special version of ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, but again, this is dependant upon certain things being just so. We’ve got everything you’ll need to get the job done queued up, so don’t be afraid to hit up the jump get get started. Happy jailbreaking! More →
Well lookie what we have here, iPod Touch owners. As exciting as the upcoming 3.0 OS is, and as much as we know you can’t wait to pay for it while iPhone users get it for free, we all know that most of the desirable capabilities brought about by 3.0 are already available — if you jailbreak. We’ve been waiting for quite some time and just a a short while ago, the Dev Team dropped the bomb. Redsn0w… Beta… Is ready. Oh and the best part? Windows, Linux and OS X are all covered with this first beta release. Ok, we’ll shut up now and let you get to it. As always, let us know how it goes in the comments section.

Are you the proud owner of a second generation iPod Touch that’s been a feeling a bit… left out as of late? Thanks to some recent developments on the part of the industrious iPhone Dev team, you’ll soon be able to jailbreak your device, bringing its hacked-ness up to par with the rest of Apple Touch screen devices. The organization has been alluding to an impending jailbreak for quite some time, but just yesterday released some screen shots giving us a bit more insight into their process. Apparently, the actual jailbreaking is still “far too manual” for most consumers, but the fine folks are promising a streamlined GUI-ed application in the very near future. While refusing to give any specific timeline, the dev team has assured us that they are “putting a lot of energy into it”, so we’re guessing that the ETA won’t drag too far into the distant future.
