  • 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.

      I did mine and I'm on 2.10.4 modem firmware. Stay away from 4.1 UNLOCKERS.

      I don't care about an unlock, and wanted to try gamecenter. Then I downgraded to 4.0.1 with tinyumbrella. It's my understanding the only way to upgrade without changing ur baseband is via pwnage.

      If the dev team has successfully built and loaded a custom ipsw in pwnage how would that be tethered? It doesn't make much sense that you would need to reload that ipsw at every boot....

      Hmmm this is interesting....

      Great work dev-team. Patiently, yet anxiously awaiting pwnagetool and hopefully it'll work with 4.2 once it is released.

      For the ones crying for greenpoison. If you can't wait then help everyone else out and create a jailbreak for all devices. If u can't then shut up and let dev team do what they do best.

      According to the definition of guesstimate from Oxford Dictionaries Online, it has been in use since around the 1930s. If people have been using it for the last 80 years, I'd say it is a word.

      I bought an iPhone 4 Thursday of last week at at&t and it came with 4.0.2. Not jailbreakable at the moment, but it will be unlockable. Any firmware currently out will be jailbreakable. Not all basebands will be unlockable.

      If it comes with 4.1 installed you will not be able to unlock. You will be able to JB when greenpois0n is released (although no one knows how soon that will be) but you will not be able to unlock, at least in the foreseeable future.

      4.1 has been out long enough to where more than likely if you go out and buy one it will ship with 4.1 on it. The new jailbreak will work on 4.1 BUT there is no known update for ultrasn0w to unlock the 2.10 baseband on the iPhone 4 so you wouldn't be able to unlock yet... most likely they won't develop another unlock until 4.2 at best.

      I really hope the only jailbreaks aren't custom restores. Both the computers in my house have really bad iTunes errors. I know how to fix the one giving me 1601 and 1602, but it would take me like 2 hours. The second one can't connect to the Apple servers, not even the iTunes store. I really don't know how to fix that one. Hope a Redsn0w or something of the like comes out soon after.

      Edit: Cool, sounds like it in the posts.

      Beautiful. Can't wait until they have an iPod Touch 4g jailbreak! I'm gonna donate a little to the Dev Team when it's released. Or maybe before, depending on when I get some money in my Paypal account.
