  • 1.1.1 could be about to go down
    It looks like the dev team is up to something. I have been following them over at IRC and it looks like Mobile Safari on both the touch and the iPhone are suffering from a one year old TIFF exploit.

    Basically, opening a carefully crafted TIFF image will crash mobile safari, causing a buffer overflow and allow for arbitrary code execution. This same exploit was used more than 1.5 years ago to crack the PSP firmware.

    UPDATE:
    Ladies And Gentlemen, it looks like we have code execution. Hooray!!

      Honestly my iPhone OOB was good but I didn't LOVE it until I added all the great mods and Springboard. Luckily I held at 1.0.2 until the new unlock method is worked out.
      All Steve has to do to make his new cool product awesome is look at what we're doing and officially do it in the coming upgrades...right?

      this is great news! but i think the team should've waited til after the release of leopard to release this info. now apple can fix it with the next update due at the end of the month when leopard drops. but i guess it doesnt matter cause the dev's will break that sooner or later also

      I had a 1.0.2 phone, but I restored the day the update came out, to try to activate my phone, but not knowing that it will update the phone. I never unlocked my phone before. Now I am downgraded on 1.0.2, but with the new baseband.

      I just cant call and text and phone stuff.

      And so you can pay for it and keep lining Steve-O's pockets?

      Yep, Pandora's Battery is pretty cool, and I get a lot of a month from installing custom firmwares on PSPs and putting custom XMB themes and homebrew on there

      I applaud the dev team (have donated, and will again) but maybe we shouldn't tell Apple how this is being done. I know they will figure it out and issue a patch but no need to help them, just a thought.
      And another blow is dealt to the Borg, it makes me smile. :-)

      This reminds me of the PSP scene. Sony releasing updates to prevent pirating, and the open source bringing out something to overcome it. Even the PSP had the tiff exploit for images.

      I'm am definitely not well versed in the technicalities, but unlike PSP, the iPhone Safari app is not integrated into the OS. It may be quite a bit easier to patch the exploit.

      Time will tell...

      Hmm..interesting point.

      I have no problem paying a 'reasonable' fee (insert your own definition here) for products, functions or music that is worth it to me..even if just for the simple economics of funding newer & better products. Will I buy Leopard when it comes out (even though I KNOW there will be a million free sources for it)? Absolutely.

      Would I prefer to have all the apps I have now be official and supported by Apple..definitely.

      When there was a risk of your (meaning the readers) phone being a paperweight due to adding functionality (and I don't mean unlocking to go with other carriers..that's a diff basket altogether) did you think for a second "I shouldn't have done it" or "I wish I could undo it"?
      Then I believe you would pay for an officially supported version (again on the assumption that it will be "fairly" priced) .

      PLEASE understand I fully appreciate and support ALL the work everyone is doing on this. My reasons for modding is purely because the functionality is not available any other way. And as I said you have taken a so-so product and made it a stellar one IMHO.

      awesome!
      But if its a safari flaw then when the next update comes (some have said it may be near the new leopord release), this could probably be patched pretty easily.

      1.1.1 would be a nice upgrade though. I would definatly use the double tap, appreciate louder speaker volume, and on occasion use the wifi music store
      (although once I can get summerboard back on it, I'm definately moving the WiFi music store to not be visible on the main springboard page

      This is great! My iPhone started acting up and getting glitchy with the tons of apps I put on there (I think Sodoku broke it), so I decided to just go back to stock and upgrade to 1.1.1. So far I love double tap and the speaker volume doesn't seem like that much of a difference. AV out is great. Only problem is that the screen looks stupid now. After having all the great themes and icon sets put of from all the talented people here on this board, the stock icons just look so subpar. Can't wait to be jailbroken again so I can have my iPhone looking nice again.
