  • Dev-Team Begins Testing SHAtter Exploit: Root Access Granted
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoX1Q8ym2J8[/ame]


    If you've been keeping up with the Jailbreak scene, the SHAtter exploit is something you should be familiar with by now.

    The Dev-Team has recently reported that they have begun testing the exploit, which was developed by @pod2g a few months after @p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team discovered the crash, into a beta version of PwnageTool to get a head start on things.

    The result of these tests showcase that the SHAtter exploit clearly has enough power to convince an iPod touch 4G to restore to their custom IPSW. This is the video you see above.

    Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock. In any event, this is another exciting time for iPhone and iPod touch users…the cat and mouse game continues!
    There you have it folks. We are getting closer and closer each day. This should give many of you some motivation to be patient just a little bit longer. The assumption is that we will see a tool such as greenpois0n shortly followed by a later release of PwnageTool. If your into unlocking your phones, waiting for PwnageTool is a safe investment.

      This one time at band camp, someone hooked me up with some awesome free stuff. I kicked them in the balls and demanded to know why they didn't give me my free stuff sooner.

      I've been watching this cat and mouse game since 2007. Be patient and the fine people that make our jailbreaks will provide. They do this for free and they release their tools when they are ready and when they think users (us) will benefit the most. There is no point in releasing the tools until a stable firmware is reached, and 4.2 is (likely) that firmware.

      is it a safe to assume shatter will work much like spirit and blackra1n when its released? (download software on computer, plug in iDevice, hit jailbreak, boom!)

      What about the exploit the pirates at imodzone used to install cracked apps on 4.2 beta on ipad? Couldnt that same browser based exploit be used to install cydia via browser for 4.2 jailbreakme 3?

      No because that "crack" uses a hole in the dev accounts apple uses. All apple has to do is find the users within that dev account and ban the uuid and then no more cracked or even legal apps from the app store

      lmfao wtf are u talking about willy? 4.1 is stable dont try to be a smart ***. there is no point in waiting to 4.2 since its a bootrom exploit. when 4.2 is released they will just have to update their tools because the same exploit will be used. i am willing to bet the greenpois0n jailbreak will be out this week.

      The iPhone 4's baseband can already be preserved when upgrading to 4.1 with TinyUmbrella, whats the point. I can upgrade to 4.1 now, while preserving my 1.59 baseband with TinyUmbrella, then jailbreak with greenpois0n when its released. NO NEED FOR PWNAGETOOL.

      This is music to my ears...congrats guys!!! Take as long as you need to tidy it up. You guys are truly appreciated...never mind the idiots who are still tied to their mothers apron strings.

      On a side note, I've been having a regular crash on my iPhone 4 whilst trying to open a video either in mitube or safari. I've tried to locate the cause to no avail, and can certainly replicate the crash with ease...could possibly be a useful bug for a future JB tool?

      Maybe not. Either way, I'll get to the root of it soon! Any one had a similar experience??

      This is great news, seeing as I could never create a jailbreak for millions of iPhone & iPod users. I'll just sit back and wait patiently for this FREE service. Thanks Dev Team keep up the good work!!

      Great news!! It would be nice to know if it's definatly going to be teathered or not since there was quite a bit of umming and arring about it to begin with.
      I'm guessing it's fairly likely it's tethered or one of the developers would have twittered that they had found a workaround for the bootcheck problem.

      So pwnage tool will be released first, then greenpois0n? What's pwnage for when we could just use greenpoison?

      Well if this is tethered then these are my ideas on how to get round it. (if possible)

      JB for all current devices is userland right, but to get there we have to find an exploit (safari PDF) that has nothing to do with the userland JB that how they got Root access that then led to installing the JB (you need root to install the files and access the root partition), what I'm saying is we now have an hardware exploit but currently you need two to have an untethered JB as of right now we have 1 that we know of, my idea was to use the first exploit to load an ram disc (requires a bootrom exploit ) that then would give Root access to the system, then we could install a userland JB (userland just means it runs after OS boot not before) that way the systems boot process is not modified in any way so it would continue till the OS boots then the userland JB kicks in and JBs the phone.

      this would mean untethered just like the now only instead of using safari we would use a program on a computer to install it just like Spirit did (but you would need to be in recovery to load the custom ram disc)

      hope that clears up what i meant.

      also boot exploits allow the execution of custom ram disc even if your not JB you can find out more info here. (it says 3.1.2 but it needs a bootrom (iBoot) exploit to run and the ram disc keys we have them to (we have this now on all devices))

      Kudos to the Dev Team and all the excellent folks involved in this effort. Ignore the impatient ones. I for one welcome the wait 'cause it means a more quality jailbreak. Keep up the great work !!!
