Is Apple Shipping White iPhones With In-House Software?
We all thought that now the white iPhone is starting to get into the hands of eager punters the world over, the drama of this particular unicorn was at an end. Turns out though, there’s more to come. As the iPhoneDownloadBlog writes, some of the white iPhones shipped out by Apple may be special units, and could even possess Apple’s own in-house software.
Well known hacker chpwn is asking for any white iPhone owner to check their handsets – it appears some phones have the designation ‘xxGB’ where the usual capacity markings are.
Along with the different markings, chpwn believes some hardware may also come with Apple’s own testing software installed. If you’re white iPhone 4 has either the hardware markings or the tell-tale ‘Internal Settings’ option, chpwn wants you to get in touch with him by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s believed the software could hold the key to future jailbreaks, and chpwn is keen to get his hands on it.
