Easy Tool to Hack iPod Touch

AnySIM Updated to Work with 1.1.1

iPhone and iPod Touch Jailbreaks for 1.1.1

The process for jailbreaking an iPhone manually is pretty involved; Apple's process of securing the iPhone and iPod Touch have made the barrier to entry for installing 3rd party applications on an iPhone much tougher. If you're looking to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod touch in the hopes of installing other applications or non-Apple-sanctioned ringtones, however, there are now some easier ways to do it.

Dev Team Splintering

It appears that the iPhone dev team is splintering. I wouldn't consider this news usually, but it provides insight as to what folks are working on, and it also shows the frustration of unlockers that are stuck in limbo with 1.0.2 with no way to fix their baseband radio. The splinter group, iPhone Elite, promise that brick reversal is on the way, and soon.

Jailbreak for iPhone 1.1.1 Now Available

The jailbreak for 1.1.1 based on the tiff vulnerability has been out for a few days, but not available for public consumption. It appears that the iPhone Dev Wiki crowd is ready to unleash it on us. To install the jailbreak on a 1.1.1 iPhone, point Safari on your iPhone to http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta/. Their exploit code will install Installer.app on the iPhone, assuming you say yes to the prompts.

iBrickr makes iPhone 1.1.1 Downgrade Easy

If you want to downgrade the firmware on your iPhone, iBrickr has an easy option for downgrading the firmware from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2. Thus spoke Nate True:

Just a small update - if you want to downgrade your iPhone from 1.1.1 back to 1.0.2, iBrickr will guide you through it. No button holding either, it's easy!

And if you'd like to download it, iBrickr has its own web domain that will redirect you to the proper place. The update doesn't work with unlocked iPhones that were bricked by upgrading to 1.1.1, but that tool is still on the way from possibly multiple sources.

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Jailbreak

That's right, the folks at the iPhone Dev reported via TUAW that they have accomplished jailbreaking on iPhones with the 1.1.1 firmware. Third party apps do run, though most of them will require a recompile. Most of the 1.1.1 applications won't work with 1.0.2 firmwares, which isn't surprising -- Apple probably did a bunch of work on their ABI though the API itself remained stable. The jailbreak method isn't ready for general consumption, so they ask our patience, but there are some tidbits that they've found buried in the update: "1.1.1 references both com.apple.mobile.radio and com.apple.mobile.nike". This probably isn't the first of little hidden tidbits about 1.1.1 that we've seen.

iPhone Hacking Update

There hasn't been a lot of noteworthy progress on opening up 1.1.1 like there was on version 1.0 of the firmware, and that's to be expected. However, there were some valiant pushes forward last week, by prominent iPhone hacker Erica Sadun who mapped out the filesystem of the 1.1.1 update. This is notable as it pre-empts the requirement to decrypt the filesystem before inspecting files and whatnot.

Think Different Parody Ad

Someone has posted a YouTube parody video of Apple's 'Think different' campaign. Until folks manage to crack and hack the 1.1.1 firmware, it probably functions as a eulogy for the 1.0.2 firmware that allowed us to install 3rd party applications and unlock our iPhones. There was a nice little ecosystem going on the iPhone for a while, and it was pretty much nipped in the bud.
