Okay take this news with a grain of salt, for we are not sure here whether this is just a rumor, or a real deal. In an unexpected turn of events, the lemon drop image on Limera1n.com is now pointing towards a image which is showing all iOS devices, including those which are not supported by the upcoming GreenPois0n tool as jailbroken.
Since today is the day jailbreaking has officially gone legal in the United States, I thought it was right time to share this full two-part interview on history of jailbreaking with Jay Freeman Saurik, the guy who is creator of Cydia, Winterboard and Cyntact apps for jailbroken iPhones. In his interview with Make It Work, Saurik tells us how the entire process of jailbreaking started with George Hotz, to the now latest jailbreaking sensation - the 17-year-old guy nicknamed Comex who is working on jailbreaking the iPhone 4. Comex is also known for jailbreaking all iPhones, iPod touches and iPad with Spirit, and Flash port (dubbed Frash) for iPad.
In an unexpected update to his last blog post titled “Meh”, Geohot has announced that he, for the time being at least has kind of abandoned the whole iPhone jailbreak and unlock scene. The reasons according to him are as follows.
The infamous iPhone hacker George Hotz (aka Geohot) is in France these days, taking part in Nuit Du Hack conference which is currently being held in Paris. During his presentation at the conference, he mentioned that he has found a new bootrom exploit, which can ultimately pwn all iPhones for life, including the yet to be released iPhone 4. He has named this exploit as “pwned4life”.
I have just been tipped off on twitter about Limera1n.com – a domain which has been registered by the infamous iPhone hacker named George Hotz (aka geohot). The domain whois record for both blackra1n and limera1n shares same record and confirms that it has been registered by geohot on March 27. Whois record also reveals that it was last updated on April 13, almost effectively the same date when geohot successfully jailbroke iPhone OS 4 which makes it even more authentic. Though there is no confirmation about this by geohot himself.
Folks behind the Gull1hack tool are also said to be working on a new unlocking tool dubbed Blacksn0w V2 which according to them will ultimately unlock the new iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 baseband on iPhone 3GS with new bootrom. I for one wont believe them until they come out with more proof of concept screenshot and videos.
A group of hackers are claiming to have found an exploit which will jailbreak iPhone 3GS with new bootrom and it will be untethered. The exploit appears to work not only in iPhone 3GS models with new bootrom, but also in all iPhone and iPod touch models.
Well it looks like Apple has started banning iPhone hackers from the iTunes App Store. Sherif Hashim, the iPhone developer and hacker who recently found an exploit in the latest iPhone OS 3.1.3, which could enable the unlock on 05.12.01 baseband for iPhone 3GS and 3G devices has been banned by Apple for the so called “security reasons”. This is what Sherif gets when he tries to access App Store from his iPhone.
The long awaited Apple iPad was released today, much to the delight of Apple fans who were waiting for Apple to reinvent the tablet/slate market. For those of you who don’t know, iPad is an all new tablet/slate like device that will run all of your existing iPhone Apps and Games on a a 9.7 inches IPS capacitive multitouch display. It is powered by 1Ghz processor and comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB flash sizes. More features of the device can be found here.
