Alright guys, here is a quick heads up! Apple has seeded iOS 4.2.1 GM to developers hinting towards the fact that final version will see the light of day soon. If you’re one of those who are currently relying on a jailbreak or a carrier unlock then we highly recommend that you avoid updating to iOS 4.2.1.
Just like Chronic Dev Team’s GreenPois0n, the Windows counterpart of PwnageTool 4.1 known as Sn0wbreeze 2.1 has been fully open sourced and it’s source code is available to public for free. What’s the point of making it open source? You can modify the tool according to your own liking or even improve it for the betterment of the jailbreaking community under the terms and conditions laid down by General Public License (GNU).
Sn0wbreeze 2.1 for iOS 4.1 / 3.2.2 is now available for download. If any of the existing iOS 4.1 jailbreak tools didn’t work for you, you can give Sn0wbreeze 2.1 a try! For those of you who don’t know, like PwnageTool for Mac, Sn0wbreeze for Windows can be used to create custom firmware files for iOS 4.1 without the upgraded baseband so that you can unlock iOS 4.1 (05.13.04 baseband) with existing version of Ultrasn0w.
Chronic Dev Team have lived up to their promise! The source code for Limera1n-based GreenPois0n iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool is now available publicly for download. You can use the source code under the terms and conditions laid down by General Public License (GNU) to modify the tool to your own liking, or even improve it for the betterment of the jailbreaking community.
The iPhone Dev Team has just released an updated version 0.9.6b2 of Redsn0w which is based on Geohot’s limera1n exploit and it can jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad (on iOS 3.2.2) and iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G (Non MC Model only). Besides, this new version also offers custom boot land recovery logos for the older devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) iPod touch 2G (Non MC), and iPhone 3G, along with the ability to let Windows users restore to a custom IPSW files that are cooked using PwnageTool for Mac.
AnyRing is a new app available on Cydia which enables you to set just about any song as your phone ringtone, or SMS alert on a jailbroken iPhone. You can even record your own sound and set it as your default ringtone alert. All you have to do is to simply drag and drop any song in iTunes, sync it with your iPhone, and then fire up AnyRing app to set it as your default Ringtone.
Yesterday we informed you about a critical security flaw in iOS 4.1 which allows you to make phone calls even when iPhone is locked. Apple was notified about this critical issue last night.
Folks at MacRumors Forums have found a major security flaw in iOS 4.1 which allows you to make phone calls even when phone is locked.
After releasing PwnageTool 4.1.1 yesterday, the iPhone Dev Team today has silently updated PwnageTool to 4.1.2 to fix jailbreaking issues for OS X 1.5.x Leopard users. Again, as far as the jailbreak, compatibility and the exploit is concerned, this release offers nothing new except for this bug fix.
If, for whatever purpose, you want to make your iOS device look like it’s on iOS 4.1 (or another version) when, in fact, it’s on an older version, then you can use Firmware Changer to do just that without digging into complicated .plist files.
