The infamous Dev Team announced on Thursday evening that redsn0w has been updated to support Apple’s latest version of iOS, 4.3.3. For the third iOS update in a row, the Dev Team says it has been able to use the same exploit to jailbreak iOS. The Team wonders aloud why Apple hasn’t addressed this issue yet, and we’re hoping the answer is that the software team in Cupertino is currently focusing on more pressing matters. In the mean time, owners of Apple’s iPhone 4 (GSM), iPhone 3GS, iPad, third or fourth-generation iPod touch, and second-generation Apple TV can now feel free to update and jailbreak away. Unfortunately, the Dev Team’s iPad 2 jailbreak is still in development. More →
Apple released the latest version of its mobile operating system last Friday and within 24 hours, a tethered jailbreak method became available to the public. This should hardly be unexpected, as the Dev Team had said it would wait for iOS 4.3.1 before releasing a jailbreak solution for iOS 4.3 in order to avoid having Apple fix the latest security hole the Dev Team planned to exploit. A “tethered” jailbreak affords users the same ability to customize iOS as the standard jailbreak, but it requires that the device be tethered to a computer in order to boot. An untethered jailbreak is not advisable for most users and the wait for an untethered solution won’t be long, so we definitely recommend waiting a few days before jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Sit tight — we all know how fast the Dev Team works. More →
The Dev Team announced in a blog post today that the latest version of its iPhone hacking tool is now available. PwnageTool 4.1 does exactly what the name might suggest — it pwns iOS 4.1. Currently available for Mac computers only, the Dev Team’s latest creation will jailbreak any of of the following devices running the latest build of iOS:
- Apple TV 2G
- iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
- iPod touch 4G
- iPod touch 3G
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 3G
As you can see, not even the new Apple TV can hide from the Dev Team’s crusades. PwnageTool 4.1 is also capable of unlocking iPhones with little effort, though Apple’s latest baseband version still poses a bit of a challenge.
So, iGear owners — head on over to the Dev Team’s site to download PwnageTool 4.1. And as always, pwn at your own risk. More →
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? Well, something like that. The iPhone 2.2 software update hasn’t even been released yet and the ever swift iPhone Dev Team has already jailbroken it. It’s like they were reading Apple’s minds and went up for the block before the shot got off. Or, they’d gotten their hands on the 2.2 beta that was seeded to developers and worked on that. Either way, for those of you with jailbroken iPhones hoping not to be left behind when the update does come out, you won’t have to wait around a few hours like you did last time. Let’s hear it for that damn diligent dev team, eh?
