  • Apple Still Trying to Curb In-Store Jailbreaking Phenomenon


    Almost everyone I know wants to jailbreak an iDevice. But there's a catch. Since they've already jailbroken their own iPhones, iPods, and iPads, they would prefer to try something a bit more daring. You know, like jailbreaking a display device inside of an Apple store. Apparently, a lot of folks in our community want the thrill of doing just that. And Apple is aware of it.

    Understandably, Apple isn't fond of folks like us jailbreaking iPhones and such inside of Apple retail stores. As a result, Apple has effectively blocked Jailbreakme.com from being accessed at the company's retail outlets over its available WiFi networks. Not surprisingly, Apple is anything but a big fan of jailbreakme.com, a one-stop browser-based jailbreak shop for all iOS devices that fully exploits a PDF security hole in the Mobile Safari browser. Apple, however, said this week that its fixin' to serve up a fix for this PDF exploit that will be available via a future iOS update.

    Reports of Apple blocking the jailbreak site first surfaced late in the week and, in all actuality, didn't necessarily come as a big shocker to anyone, although there were scant indications that some customers could still access the site at Apple locations as of Saturday morning. Today, however, I endeavored to access the site at my nearest Apple store (I'm lucky they still let me in) and was promptly prohibited from doing just that. Looks like I won't have my own YouTube video (like everyone else does) of me jailbreaking an iPhone inside the Apple Store. And I was really hoping to show the grandchildren one day. Oh well. But at least some have the distinct honor of being among the few (and proud) who actually managed to jailbreak a floor model iDevice.

      This is only going to force them to shut out the exploit sooner.

      Isn't there MMi's version of JailbreakMe you could have used as well?
      I'm going to go and do it to the iPhone 4's there soon, it will be funny.
      Also if your in the US, it'd be funnier to download MakeItMine or something and put a fake carrier like Sprint or Verizon and then walk off lol.

      By some of these responses you can obviously tell that there are quite a few young children (maybe even some so called adults) making these posting that are not aware of have any clue of what respect is all about. Not only for Apple but for the Devs that brought you the Jailbreak.

      Handle your Jailbreaking with respect and be grateful, it's not a game, don't piss of Apple or the Devs who are hard at work. Go ahead, keep slapping them in the face and see what the future holds.

      theres a few ways to do it even on their network heres some:

      1. change dns server setttings
      2. hidemyass.com
      3. use a socks5 proxy server


      those are a few ways that you can get arround that little restriction

      if you dont know how to do any of these things google is your friend


      edit

      im pretty certain its just a dns block, so until i get time to go test (if i ever get time) ill test it out but usally its the dns thing now if its the ip being blocked then theres other methods like hidemyass.com or a socks5 proxy
