  • Hello, Firmware 2.0. Nice to JAILBREAK YA.


    The iPhone Dev Team, who rumor has it just last night got ahold of the new firmware that ships with the SDK (1.2, which will be released to public as 2.0), has already decrypted the disk image and jailbroken the firmware.

    This image shows screenshots of apps running on the 1.2 firmware, which requires a dev certificate to do normally, although none have yet been issued. The jailbreak currently only works with hacked activation, meaning it won't work with AT&T iPhone's yet. However, come on, this is like 2 hours ago it happened, you AT&T folk won't be left in the cold.

    Props to the iPhone Dev Team on this one, and thanks to King Chronic for the heads up

    UPDATED: Here's the video.

    Cash UPDATE: removed irrelevant video.

      Hell yeah, great job for the dev team

      as for people wondering whether apple will create a patch for the loophole, they can't because like us, they don't know what the jailbreak is. Hence why the Dev Team is not releasing the method until the time is right.

      This is not 1.1.2 again where there was no method for a very long time.

      Dev Team, thank you for doing what you do.

      Yeah a lot of new features are coming up!
      But what happens with all of us people who can't reflash the baseband because of some corrupt data somewhere? (eeprom/seczone I guess)?
      Couldn't dev-team work on it someday? I mean there's a lot of people like me and we only hear about news of jailbreaks or activations, when a real problem is here...

      great work. i don't want to see a video, i don't care how you did it. i don't want apple to find anything out, im just happy that it is starting to look like jailbreak is never going away! great!

      a list of new features wouldn't hurt though.......

      Yawn, until the real FW is released this is just trumpet blowing. Get an easy GUI jailbreak, activate and unlock app in our hands 24 hours after the official FW update and I will be impressed.

      Yeah, they are truly awesome guys. I know they were good, but doing this whole 1.2 jailbreak thing with them showed how cool they were

      I can't answer too many questions right now, but pumpkin OK'd the video. The only limitation is that I can not show how I jailbroke the firmware, but I can show you guys all the cool new features, and believe me they are pretty awesome. The only thing I regret is not being able to get Spore early from the App Store (They wiped it clean, there is nothing in the App Store at the time...)
      Please, please, PLEASE, I ask you guys to be very careful and not let anyone leak the jailbreak method until AFTER Apple have released v. 2.0... this way we can all have both our official apps and jailbroken apps, guaranteed.

      my impression is that since this took only a few hours is that they used PWNED to do this. Pwned should never be patched, as it is on a deep level of the iPhones nor. Thus making it unfixable by apple.

      So with this jailbreak being unparchable, why not release it now?

      cheers to the Dev Team for the excellent job. Hopefully we can all have it unlocked & jailbroken iphone at the end of june. We've got enough time to do that & perhaps we can have it before the officail apple release for the new firmware...

      They wouldn't do that. Too many bricked phones for anyone with a weak signal

      Those test kits will involve REAL iPhones, not simulators.
      No, the real firmware was jailbroken. And I can't say any more, but you're going to have to just trust me when I say that the corporate guys have this firmware too.

      It's OK, the method has not been revealed

      Really though, great work. Apple = PWN'd
      As long as everyone stays quiet, we're all good

      My theory is that they are Apple Geniuses working from within the company
      I wouldn't be suprised :P

      The only other possibility is if there was a loophole in the way the system handles SDK created apps, where some arbitrary code was able to run despite the app not being signed.

      Regardless, the dev team really is awesome, and does the serious grunt work in keeping the platform (effectively) open.

      Great job guys.
      Nope, trust me, they really did get it done that fast

      It's ok, this has been told to me when I inquired about if it would be wise to make the video. I will just be showing off the new features after it has been jailbroken

      Even if they did use that, it would be considered leaking the firmware which is illegal.

      from what I read apple would need to change a lot of stuff to secure itself from the dev team, so their app will one-up ziphone, and will be around until apple fixes their horrid gap in security. Props to zibri, and dev crew cause of yall people buy more iPhones. Keep it up

      Just in my mind. Where is the proof of this? There is none, or I cant see one. I don't believe what I don't see. And just a Screenshot of something is definitely no proof at all.
