The iPhone Dev Team have released an enhanced version of the Redsn0w software that was released last month that let users of iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on their devices. The new Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 is capable of jailbreak all the iOS devices including iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and the iPad. The Dev team writes,

In the meantime, we’ve also incorporated the limera1n exploit into redsn0w.  But we’ve added a few extras:

  • custom bootlogos for iPhone3G/iPhone3GS/iPod2G users (with qualifying bootroms)
  • an option that implements the “DFU” button in PwnageTool.  This button (which you can use from Windows) lets you prepare your device for a custom DFU.  Even if you’re purely a Windows user, you can get a trusted friend to run PwnageTool over your IPSW to create a custom IPSW.  You can now install that custom IPSW on your own Windows box, after you run this redsn0w version.

The latest release is available for both the Windows and Mac platforms and makes use of the very same Limera1n exploit that was used by George Hotz as well as the Chronic Dev team in their jailbreak releases.

iOS Jailbreak Software PwnageTool For Windows Releasing Soon?

If you are a Windows user with a jailbroken iPhone, you may be aware that the popular PwnageTool that is used by several Mac users to jailbreak their iPhones does not work for you. This is because PwnageTool had all along been built just for the Mac platform. Windows users had to rely on an […]

If you are a Windows user with a jailbroken iPhone, you may be aware that the popular PwnageTool that is used by several Mac users to jailbreak their iPhones does not work for you. This is because PwnageTool had all along been built just for the Mac platform. Windows users had to rely on an alternate solution called Sn0wbreeze for jailbreak.

This space could see some fresh developments. According to the Twitter timelines of popular jailbreaker MuscleNerd, a PwnageTool for Windows could be releasing shortly. In a Twitter conversation with @iH8sn0w, he writes,

@iH8sn0w seriously…@chpwn is your age, and about to release a better version of PT for win. Don’t *blame* him for that.

There is another surprise in store. This tweet was in response to a message posted by iH8sn0w that noted that the next version of Sn0wbreeze may not release at all considering that PwnageTool for Windows is coming soon. If you are a fan of Sn0wbreeze, you have your reason to feel bad about it.

Jailbreak iPad On iOS 4.2 With Sn0wbreeze

Sn0wbreeze, the popular jailbreak tool that lets Windows users jailbreak their iDevices will now be capable of jailbreaking an iPad running the upcoming iOS 4.2 platform. If you are not aware, Sn0wbreeze is the Windows jailbreak tool that is similar to the PwnageTool that works on Mac computers. The latest update makes use of the […]

Sn0wbreeze, the popular jailbreak tool that lets Windows users jailbreak their iDevices will now be capable of jailbreaking an iPad running the upcoming iOS 4.2 platform. If you are not aware, Sn0wbreeze is the Windows jailbreak tool that is similar to the PwnageTool that works on Mac computers. The latest update makes use of the exploit that was unearthed by George Hotz; the popular jailbreaker who is known better as GeoHot, in his Limera1n exploit that was released as a jailbreak tool earlier this month. This is an untethered bootrom level jailbreak which means you don’t have to redo the jailbreak each time the iPad reboots.

But before you get excited, do note that we only have the confirmation of the rooting as of now and a public download is not out yet. In any case, most of you may not need it until the new iOS is out for public download. So expect a solution in place by then.

Source Code For RedSn0w & Greenpois0n iOS Jailbreak Tools To Be Released Soon?

Jailbreaks for iPhones have existed for almost as long as the iPhone itself. However, all along, these iOS exploits based applications have remained unavailable to the generic hackers who would love to access the source code to create custom tools for themselves. Now that is apparently changing. According to a tweet posted by popular jailbreaker […]

Jailbreaks for iPhones have existed for almost as long as the iPhone itself. However, all along, these iOS exploits based applications have remained unavailable to the generic hackers who would love to access the source code to create custom tools for themselves. Now that is apparently changing. According to a tweet posted by popular jailbreaker MuscleNerd, at least RedSn0w could soon become open source. That ideally means that users will soon be able to keenly follow the development besides contributing to the development themselves and at the end of it all, access the source code, meddle with it, etc.

Now while it is not clear, we also hear that the Greenpois0n jailbreak tool could become open source too. There is no news on when all of this will actually materialize since the only thing we know now is that these applications will be open souce “soon“.

New PwnageTool 4.1 For iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Released For Mac

The iPhone Dev Team has announced in a new blog post that the latest version of PwnageTool 4.1 that will enable users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 devices is now available for download.

The iPhone Dev Team has announced in a new blog post that the latest version of PwnageTool 4.1 that will enable users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 devices is now available for download. The big addition to the family of jailbreakable devices is obviously the second generation Apple TV. The new PwnageTool is an untethered jailbreak which means there is no need for users to tether their device to a computer while rebooting them. Here is a complete list of devices supported with the latest tool

  • AppleTV 2G
  • iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPhone4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 3G

The Dev team has a word of advice to those users who have also used Ultrasn0w to unlock their devices,

“The biggest mistake you can make (and it is a big one!) is lettings iTunes restore to the official IPSW — you’ll lose the unlock and won’t be able to go back!  You must use Option-Restore, not just the Restore button by itself.  Then navigate to your custom IPSW — not to the stock one!  If you accidentally started a restore to the official IPSW, unplug your iPhone immediately before the restore gets to the “Updating Firmware” step!”

While at it, do remember that jailbreaking is risky and could possibly brick your phone besides making you lose your warranty. So proceed at your own risk.

GreenPois0n Jailbreak For New Apple TV Successfully Tested

Last week, the iPhone Dev Team had announced that the PwnageTool that will be used to jailbreak the second generation Apple TV has been developed and shall be releasing soon.

Last week, the iPhone Dev Team had announced that the PwnageTool that will be used to jailbreak the second generation Apple TV has been developed and shall be releasing soon. Today, Joshua Hill also known as p0sixninja from the Chronic Dev Team has announced that the Greenpois0n jailbreak that will make use of the Limera1n exploit to break into the new Apple TV has been successfully tested. He has posted a picture of the Apple TV with a customized background as proof of the same.

Apple TV Jailbreak GreenPois0n

There is no word on when this new Greenpois0n version shall be releasing to the public. Expect it soon. Meanwhile, if you are still wondering if the jailbreak is going to be worth it, be rest assured that it is not at the moment. The new Apple TV still does not run any iOS applications and unless we have more work on making these applications Apple TV compatible, the jailbreak process is going to be more about the thrill than anything else.

As an aside, jailbreaking is risky and can lead you to lose your Apple warranty. So proceed at your own peril.

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 On iPhone 4 With Mac Compatible Limera1n

George Hotz, known as GeoHot to the jailbreaking community, has announced that a Mac compatible version of the iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool, the Limera1n is now available for download.

George Hotz, known as GeoHot to the jailbreaking community, has announced that a Mac compatible version of the iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool, the Limera1n is now available for download. With this, users of PC as well as Mac computers can now connect their iDevices to a computer to jailbreak the iOS platform.

The past one week has been extremely eventful for the iPhone jailbreakers. Posixninja, another popular jailbreak team was all set to bring their SHAtter exploit based jailbreaking solution to the iPhone before GeoHot one-upped them by launching his own version of jailbreaking software. This has forced the Dev Team to save the exploit for a later date and have modified their jailbreak solution to make use of GeoHot’s exploit. A Mac solution from Posixninja is still awaited.

Nevertheless, if you are a Mac user waiting to jailbreak your iPhone 4 immediately, hit this link to proceed to the Limera1n website. Jailbreaking is dangerous and you know it. So you proceed at your own risk.

iOS 4.1 GreenPois0n Jailbreak For Linux Released

The title says it all, doesn’t it. Just days after the Chronic Dev Team announced a modified version of their Windows-only GreenPois0n jailbreak tool that will break into the iOS 4.1 platform on iPhones and other iDevices, they have announced that the jailbreak application variant for the Linux platform too is now available. This makes […]

The title says it all, doesn’t it. Just days after the Chronic Dev Team announced a modified version of their Windows-only GreenPois0n jailbreak tool that will break into the iOS 4.1 platform on iPhones and other iDevices, they have announced that the jailbreak application variant for the Linux platform too is now available. This makes the OS X as the only platform that is yet to get a solution from the Chronic Dev Team. However, the team of jailbreakers have assured their users that the OS X version too shall be releasing soon. The exact date was not revealed,

“Mac release is being worked on. Some technical difficulties must be resolved. We have no ETA for the Mac release besides “soon”. Bad things seem to happen when we give ETAs.”

We will let you know when that happens.

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak For Apple TV 2G Releasing

The iPhone Dev team has announced that the latest version of PwnageTool that will be capable of jailbreaking the new Apple TV as well as iPhone 4 will be releasing by the end of this week.

The iPhone Dev team has announced that the latest version of PwnageTool that will be capable of jailbreaking the new Apple TV as well as iPhone 4 will be releasing by the end of this week. This jailbreak solution will be based on the same exploit that George Hotz had employed in his recently announced Limera1n jailbreak application. Incidentally, Limera1n too is capable of jailbreaking the recently launched Apple TV. You will remember that the iPhone Dev Team has deferred the exposure of the SHAtter exploit following the launch of Limera1n by GeoHot earlier this week. Do note that this jailbreak solution will not change your phone’s baseband.

Jailbreaking is a risky procedure and could brick your device and you could also end up losing your warranty. That means you should be going ahead with the jailbreak; when it launches, at your own peril. And considering that jailbreaking your Apple TV is a futile exercise because of limited app capability, we really it’s a nice idea to jailbreak the iOS-based set top box from Apple.

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak For iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch With Limera1n Exploit Coming

More jailbreaking action here.

More jailbreaking action here. After the iPhone Dev Team announced yesterday that the new Greenpois0n jailbreak with SHAtter exploit will be released on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM, George Hotz, known better as GeoHot in the jailbreaking circles has revealed that he is coming up with his own jailbreak solution for iOS 4.1. This jailbreak is apparently done with a newly discovered exploit termed Limera1n.

This is interesting for those of you following the jailbreaking scene considering Hotz had announced earlier this year that he was calling it quits on developing jailbreak tools. Hotz had then said, “It was a cool ride, and i’ve learned a lot about a lot perhaps one of these days i’ll do a more formal goodbye“.

From what we hear, the new Limera1n jailbreak shall be released on October 11. That’s a day after the new Greenpois0n shall be available for public download.
