  • Apple Releases iTunes 8.2, Jailbreakers beware
    Apple released iTunes 8.2 early this afternoon, an update to its music jukebox software and online store interface for the Mac and Windows. It's available for download through the Software Update system preference.


    Apple notes that iTunes 8.2 now supports iPhones and iPod touches equipped with the iPhone 3.0 software update. Other accessibility improvements and bug fixes have also been made.

    Jailbreakers beware: Apple also improved security in iTunes 8.2. According to a notice, Apple has improved bounds checking in 8.2 to prevent a stack buffer overflow problem that could lead to unexpected app termination or arbitrary code execution.


    from MuscleNerd:
    Today's iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they try to identify what's connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2(These are probably *not* anti-jailbreak maneuvers, just Apple changing protocols that normally only Apple cares about.) To fully uninstall iTunes 8.2 on Mac, close all iTunes and do this from Terminal.app. Do NOT mistype it .. https://twerbose.com/t8791
    from Chronic dev:

    iTunes 8.2 Update == Bad. It will check the hash of newer firmware images, call the mothership when restoring to beta firmwares, have updated MobileDevice so programs like QuickPwn and anything else that uses MD will get messed up, make sure your device has the correct security epoch, chipid, security domain, production mode, board id, bb chip id, etc. They can all be patched, but for now, hold back from updating.
    If you got too excited and installed the new iTunes grab this file to uninstall iTunes 8.2 on a Mac



    If you install iTunes 8.2, QuickPwn and PwnageTool will not be able to talk to your phone correctly. You can always jailbreak with iTunes 8.1 or iTunes 8.2 prerelease for beta 4.

      I have been running OS 3.0 BETA 5 Jailbroken with Windows Vista Ultimate...no problem until today. I can't get itunes to come up in a functional way. Screen comes up but Task Manager says the program is not responding. I have been using iTunes 8.2 pre-release successfully until today. I have the itunes update turned off.

      Will everything be ok when the full OS 3.0 comes out?

      Hopefully this doesn't mean an iTunes patch for the 3.0 jailbreak.

      I put all 10 movies purchased on itumes on my 16gb iphone and erased my library and will erase my apps. I found handbrake and diskutility effective ways to get movies on my mac. I am not dealing with the headache.

      Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll wait for the official release of 3.0 and word from the dev-team saying it's a go. And maybe by then Jay will have Cydia and Winterboard working properly. Thanks again!!

      Does it affect syncing with previously jailbroken devices? It seems like it does not, but it would be nice to have a confirmation

      i'm with marcoiac...

      i'm currently running JB 2.2.1 OS on my iPhone and am wondering what "downfalls" i'd run into by updating to iTunes 8.2...

      if someone can shed some light for us "in the dark" we'd appreciate it!!!

      If you want to be safe you should never update until the Dev-Team say it's safe to do so.

      I fixed the problem. Noticed that I was running iTunes 8.02.2, so I reloaded 8.02.1 over it, which wiped out 8.02.2... now iTunes is working again and I have a working jailbroken iPhone running OS 3.0 ...(I selected repair when I ran the iTunes setup file.)

      This thread is about 8.2 vs 8.1.1, you mention 8.02.2 and 8.02.1, you probably typed the wrong numbers, can you clarify?
