    Thumbs up The Pwnage has open Pandora's Box
    The Dev Team has open Pandora's Box. And Apple, AT&t and Steve have to reap the whirlwind. Steve of all people should know that there are always some one smarter and brighter out there. It proves that the Dev Team is Smarter and Brighter than the programmers and developers behind the iPhone.
    Good Job Dev Team and anyone else behind the scenes that made a contribution to this Application.

    cout << "Pandora's Box is Open\n" << "Steve reap the whirlwind\n" << "HA HA HA HA\n"

    OR it proves that, as I suspect, Jobs WANTS the hacking to continue because he can sell more phones. I'd put money on the fact that ATT is the driving force behind trying to shutdown the hacking community and plugging the holes used to exploit the iPhone.

    Think about it, the more iPhones sold, the more money in Apples pocket, but ATT (probably) only gets money on iPhones sold in one of their stores and from selling rate plans. Of COURSE they want the iPhone NOT to work on other providers like T Mobile.

    If it weren't for the enormous lawsuits that would come about from its discovery, I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that an Apple programmer or two are on the Dev Team.

    I'm with you on this one. Completely agree! What WILL be interesting is to see what will happen when Apple's commitment to AT&T reaches its end. Will Apple renew the commitment or will they sign a different provider? My bet is that they will simply sell iPhones via Apple stores and let people decide for themselves who they sign up with.

    We are happy to announce that IPSWTool is coming to your computer soon!

    YouTube - iPlus and iLiberty+ get PWNED

    IPSWTool is the next step of building custom firmwares with the style and grace of iLiberty+. With IPSWTool you can create custom firmwares packaged will all the goodies already downloaded and inserted into the IPSW. These custom firmwares can be restored onto iPhones and iTouchs that have already been Pwnd. As you can see from the video / screenshots there are already some great application compilations to install with the BigBoss and CrashX AppPacks. Furthermore there are the thing you'd expect: BSD subsystem, SSH, Installer, and of course Cydia.



    Another very cool feature that we hope is implemented in the final release of IPSWTool is the ability to change the OS and Media partition sizes. Why? It would allow you to restore a firmware onto your iPhone / iPod Touch that already has plenty of free space for all the cool Applications that have been developed; getting rid of the need to move your Applications, Ringtones, etc around.

    Look forward to this great Application!
    hahahaha wow guys. if you thought that THAT was amazing, just wait until release. this was just the proof of concept. the final build will have much more

    Ehhhh, not exactly. You can probably grab the app store from the 1.2 fw (older 2.0 build) if you want that, but Installer has to be re-compiled by nullriver in order to work...

    As I said earlier, the final build will have many more features, this was just a proof of concept

    Like I mentioned on their site, they should really look into something like iAppCat where you can go around the site, go through every Installer repo and pick and choose what apps you want to put into the firmware. After you are done picking, then make the custom firmware and you should be good to go...

    Thank You for sticking it to the man! The world needs more people like you guys! Corporate BS can't always win and they need to know that! Do you think that somewhere along the line you and the Dev team will be able to modify a flash plugin to work with this now that you can modify the ISPW? I would think it would be easier now? Let us know... and many thanks!
