    Default iPad Custom Firmwares Are Right Around The Corner


    It appears that GeoHot has posted a new blog entry today, detailing some keys needed to decrypt ipsw files (firmware files) which will ultimately lead to some new custom "jailbroken" firmwares for the iPad, just like it's siblings.

    Custom Firmwares are one of the best parts of the Jailbreak world, so this is rather exciting news. Although it may seem a little dull, and to anyone that isn't developing or hacking, it's probably of no real meaning to you, but the idea itself will lead to greater things to come to the iPad very soon, and that my friends, we should all be excited about.

    We've seen Cydia on the iPad already in a few videos now, which was a clear sign of thing to come, but now that devs can decrypt the firmware packages, this is closer to being put into action much sooner than any of us had originalyl anticipated.

    Here is also a guide to Decrypting the iPhone OS firmware for an intersting read and perhaps some more insight on what this new information means.
    CK's IT blog: Decrypt iPhone filesystem Firmware using Mac OS or Linux

    Here is what GeoHot had to say:

    eys for the 3.2 iPad firmware

    KEY: 1E3A1CA2F45D15452B16B9FE0A2C214A0AF897F09EE269F8E5 967FC74B1022AC

    Wait since the iphone os 4.0 is being released in fall does that mean jailbreak will happen for the ipad then too? Since this proves its already done and all but do we wait till fall?

    You can simulate it by going to Home · Cydia on an iPad in Safari =]

    I don't think he will make us wait until fall, security will be improved by then. I maybe understand waiting for iPhone OS 4.0 but even that would be kind of pointless, the whole structure of iPhone OS and security changes every major update. And of course now that apple knows iPad is hackable, they will not allow the next iPhone which is bound to come out this year be exploitable to the same exploit. So waiting for the next iPhone would be kind of pointless. I see this happening when 3.2 or whatever the next firmware update before 4.0 for iPhone/iPod touch is released, so common sense I would expect the non-tethered 3G iPod/3GS iPhone/iPad jailbreak to come around no later than April or May.

    They should make a new banner, where "The iPad is Here" and make it "The Jailbreak is coming!"

    I think that he should release it now. since no one really knows how long The Wait would be..

    and honestly its only a matter of time Before apple fixs the exploit once its released anyway.

    I say let people have some fun now with it. Since We still have no idea if we need to grab the files like we did with the iphone 3GS so we can cont to jailbreak in the future.

    What I really think they Need to work on is making a custom firmware that would accept custom FW upgrades. so each time we could just add whats new and not replace everything we already have.

    Yes, it is only a matter of time before they patch the exploit, but that generally happens in a small release with little to no NEW features. I am sure they would rather have a JB on or near day one for iPhone OS 4.0 launch than potentially have to do all that work again. Far fewer people need/want a JB for 3.1.2, which has no new features that the 3.1 didn't have aside from locking out the untethered JB/unlock, than those that will want something like this for 4. I am no dev/hacker, but if I was, I am sure I wouldn't want to piss away my hard work by letting Apple patch my workaround with the final release of 4.0 since chances are they would leave it in without this going public.

    That's Nate Hartley silly.

    On the brightside, has anyone besides me already decrypted the hell out of the iPad firmware? It's some fun stuff!

    Default Hooray!!!
    This is the best news I've heard all day. Solve the problem right at the root! This is a must since Apple no longer approves restored older firmwares. Long live jailbreak! My only concern is will Apple match the HTC EVO 4G. If not, I'll have a hard choice to make this summer...
