  • Dev Team has been bought out - immediate withdrawl from the iPhone community
    posted on the iphone-dev.org site:

    iPhone DevTeam PRESS RELEASE

    The "DevTeam" would like to announce the immediate withdrawal from the iPhone development arena.

    It was anticipated that the DevTeam would be releasing a tool for the iPhone sometime this week, unfortunately it has been decided to withdraw all development activities on this tool.

    Criticism of the validity of the tool has been reported in the press and certain actions were taken to prevent the release of the tool on the 30th March.

    Due to these actions, certain developers ceased their work immediately, with others reconsidering their position.

    On Monday the 31st of March the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of thei intellectual property and related applications.

    After much consideration the offer was accepted and work has ceased.

    The name of the company that has made this offer is private, and the details of the deal are confidential.

    Our only comment is that Pwnage Tool and other such applications will not be seen outside of the lab.

    We would like to thank our users for their support over the last 10 months.

    ENDS
    Bummer.

    Anybody get tomorrow's date?

      btw heres a link i picked up at another forum stating its a leaked download for f/w 2.0 its through a bit torrent
      here's a disclaimer of the site


      "on the Beta release of iPhone and iPod Touch OS 2.0, seeded to developers. This is build 5a225c.

      You're on your own as for activation, unlocks, etc, but software to assist in this should be popping up soon.

      You probably WON'T be able to activate this using iTunes, even if you have AT&T, but grab it while you can.

      Seed it, spread it."

      i am currently d/l to see if its legit or not... just that its d/l hella sloowww.....

      sorry ppl removed linked wasnt aware that it agaisnt rules.. tnx for the note relientmt...

      word on the street is that it's legit, but not able to be activated through itunes. I'm downloading it as i type this. When/if the pwnage tool comes out, it should do the trick

      I did, it seems ligit, but im not puttin it on my iphone just yet. The only thing i find strange about it is that there are only two images (.dmg) in the restore, instead of the normal three. other then that looks normal.

      Are you by any chance smoking something? Zibri is the one that hasn't done crap, he just added a nice little GUI to all the jailbreaks. And geohot wouldn't be able to run his software on the iPhone to complete the unlock if it weren't for the devTeam's jailbreak. If it weren't for the devTeam there would be no "geohot unlock" or "ZiPhone". Tell me who actually wrote the original jailbreak code for the iPhone? The devTeam. So, if you think the devTeam sucks, you could follow these steps:
      1. Downgrade your iPhone to 1.1.1
      2. Start updating your iPhone
      3. Unplug it while it's halfway through
      4. Take the phone, and bang it as hard as you can repeatedly against the floor
      5. Drop it in your toilet, then pick it up
      6. Go to New York, and throw it off the Empire State Building
      7. Buy a shot gun, and all the ammo you can afford, and shoot it until you run out of ammo.
      8. Put it in your driveway, and run it over with your car until you run out of gas.
      9. Plug it back in, and re-update
      Enjoy!

      I have a Touch to put it on as well, but i have to download the touch version of it as well. that is a good thought thought, i would not mind too much if my Touch got bricked, but never my iphone.
