  • Pwn Dev Team's Recently Released Jailbreak Tool Ac1dSn0w Infringes Copyright Laws


    Apparently the recently released jailbreak tool, Ac1dsn0w, which was recently released by the Pwn Dev Team infringes upon Apples code. The jailbreak tool allows for a tethered jailbreak of any iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, or iPad 1. It comes with similar tools to other jailbreaking tools and allows you to boot tethered as well as jailbreak.

    Through the use of Apples code, the tool is able to perform a tethered boot without requiring the IPSW in the first place. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team recently mentioned that hosting this jailbreak tool can lead to "DMCA takedowns". In light of its patent infringement, the links to the tool have been remove from ModMyi as we do not condone any illegal activity.

    It isn't confirmed how long the jailbreak tool will remain up for but we would imagine that Apple will get it removed shortly given the situation. The tool is said to have directly embedded 15 complete Apple programs including multiple iBSS, iBEC, and kernels. We can't imagine Apple letting this slide for too long and would suggest steering clear. Instead, it is suggested to stick to the iPhone Dev Teams RedSn0w jailbreak tool or iH8sn0ws Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool instead. (You can use the ModMyi Jailbreak Assistant to help out here)

    We'll keep everyone updated on the status of Ac1dsn0w as it is likely that more news regarding its infringement and availability will come in the near future.

      I think you could have squeezed another 'recently' into the first sentence.

      It doesn't work on the 4S or iPad 2 either so it's a waste of time for all!

      What happened to the 4S jailbreak that MuscleNerd showed off weeks ago?

      Yeah, I'm sure Geohot would have done it by now if he wasn't busy working. Who knows, maybe he jailbroke his own 4S and just kept it to himself!

      The iPhone Dev Team is seriously slacking. It used to take mere days for a jailbreak to be ready. Then the iPad 2 came along, and it took a month to see a jailbreak utility. Now the iPhone 4S is out and, if their recent crash report tool is of any indication, they don't even have an underlying exploit. They will do anything to preserve their monopoly.
