  • 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 agree, you all won't have to worry if you just don't upgrade.

      A lot of people don't bother replying which is a real shame, you waited until you had something very useful to contribute but opinions are always worth it - anyone else waiting to post until they find something 'helpful' to post shouldn't wait.
      Now you've made your first post we look forward to seeing a lot more from you.
      Anyone else who just reads, please post your thoughts - people here don't bite, we're all learning. The more you ask, the more we learn!
      Go for it, make your first post!

      I dont get why so many people are freaking out and asking a million questions when the answer is simple, if you are jailbroken and want to remain that way for now then dont update to the latest 8.2 plus there is no reason to anyway. If you have already updated dont connected your phone uninstall the latest itunes and download one of the older ones and you are back in business.

      Too many people scream the sky is falling and freak for no reason right away, the update just came out, leave your phone the way it is until Dev or other people in the know post their findings are whatthey think !

      Your advice would be good if it was right...
      8.2 is only a problem if you want to jailbreak. If you have already done so you could upgrade and synch without a problem.
      But it's better not to upgrade.

      If I understand correctly, this would only affect those who have NOT jailbroken their phones yet and WANT to? So since my phone was jailbroken months ago, it's not an issue for me??

      EDIT: Sorry--only read the first page. See this post by confucious.

      That would be correct.

      I had that issue and just did a search for *.itl and the results were the iTunes library files. I deleted them and iTunes started normally and just had to recreate the library. No big deal.

      What if we're already jailbroken?

      I've been having problems syncing stuff to my iPod Classic since yesterday, and I think updating to iTunes 8.2 might fix that problem, but I'm worried about my jailbroken 3.0 beta 5 iPhone.

This will slow down jailbreaking considerably but will not stop it completely... The dev-team are a pretty smart lot but so are Apple developers. A cat and mouse game for certain!
      wouldn't that be as effective as thinking that WEP encryption is secure against someone who uses a brute force cracking?

      I don't know much about programming, just concepts really and any time I hear the word "encryption" it almost always is followed with a manner in which it is broken.

      I do agree however, that it is a "cat and mouse" came with Apple. The only thing is that Apple is one cat in California, while the mice are a world wide community!

      remember when 2.1 came out? The thread was nothing but page after page of "oh my GAWD" and "WHAT DO I DOOOOOO".

      Followed by "You stupid sh!t, wait for the Devs to tell you it's okay to proceed"

      I remember when reading a forums was more about telling WHY things were going bad, and HOW to fix them.

      Nowadays reading forums consists of little more then "Oh yeah, I got that problem too", or redundant question after question followed by "Google is Your Friend". Well yea no kidding Google is my friend how do you think I found this place...

      now that is useful.

      however...

      can you even use an iPhone with iTunes 4?
