  • 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 an iphone 2g that I need to unlock, and I used quickpwn in windows as usual and everything was ok, but when I inserted a non-AT&T chip, the phone suddenly blocks and say "you've inserted a different SIM, please connect to itunes" and itunes only says that the SIM is not supported, as if the phone wasn't unlocked

      I think the phone has been synced previously with itunes 8.2
      is the new itunes the reason I can't insert a different sim?
      what should I do? Anyone with the same problem?

      Not sure about the 2G but with the 3G you should have the SIM in when you use quickpwn.

      yeah with the 2G when you unlock it, you have to have the simcard you want to unlock it to in the phone during the process. I had to learn that the hard way after five times hahaa

      This is kinda to do with the iPhone 3.0 release date. I have a feeling it will be released the 9th Of June because after i updated iTunes to 8.2, whenever i do check for update, it says no software found. But usually the date moves to like 1-2 weeks later when it will check again for new software but it stays on the 9th of June, day after WWDC. Could this be the release date?

      Please be patient young padawans Don't upgrade until an official post by site management or the devteam; that's just my humbled opinion.

      I am one that updated to 8.2 and now when I connect my iphone to my computer itunes comes up and will not sync with programs that I downloaded from the net. Before I could sync and that would copy my files over to my iphone. Now it says it can't sync these because I didn't buy from itunes store. So I tried uninstalling 8.2 and then re-installed 8.1 still have same problem. I'm running on a PC. What can I do?

      I tend to use Microsoft Skydrive to share files the limit was 5Gb but I think they've just upped it to 25Gb. You can make files private, public or chose who to share them with.

      I know you probably hate MS but it is an option.

      if you don't mind paying to use rapidshare, it ROCKS, especially if you use iGetter on a Mac...

      I typically download at around 1.3MB's a second... that entire download just took me about 20-30 seconds roughly...

      it is kinda pricey though, about $70 for a year but, if you download often, it pays for itself...

      rapidshare is what i used to download all my dexter, how i met your mother, big bang theory episodes while i was deployed to iraq!!!

      So if I just install iTunes 8.1 I can jailbreak again?

      But I have another question
      Recently I had to restore
      And while trying to rejailbreak quickpwn crashed not once but 3 times during the process

      But this was before I had updated to iTunes 8.2

      I read the original post but am completely lost. Could someone break that down into laymans terms? :/

      In layman's terms?

      Don't upgrade to iTunes 8.2

      Let me get this straight. Even if I have a jailbroken iphone, it's still not safe to update to 8.2? I'd expect this sidetrack to be fixed by now...

      Usually the Dev team is pretty fast on these kind of fixes, no?

      SO- even though I have a jailbroken phone, apps I DL from the net still won't get added!?

      Geeze! 8.2 lets go!

      Hmm... There's 9 days to have this iTunes 8.2 stuff sorted out, then we're all screwed!

      Well I guess that no one has had the problem I mentioned in my earlier post so I assume that is why know one responded. Any way I fixed it myself.

      when this problem is fixed, will it be a quick pwn update, or an iTunes mod?
