    Default Confusion About SHAtter Leak


    The drama surrounding the SHAtter exploit continues. A Dutch dev threatened to leak the code last week, and even though that threat was thought to have subsided, someone apparently did go ahead and leak SHAtter Wednesday. This led to a Twitter fight between p0sixninja and MuscleNerd, whom p0six had accused of being the leaker. Musclenerd denies this, but according to p0sixninja, SHAtter has been burned.

    The SHAtter exploit was originally developed by onetime Chronic-Dev hacker pod2g. A weakness in the S5L8930 bootrom of A4-based devices (iPhone 4, iPad, Apple TV 2G, iPod touch 4G). It was originally intended for the 10.10.10 (10th October 2010) release of greenpois0n before Geohot came out of nowhere with the limera1n jailbreak for all iOS devices. SHAtter was held in reserve for a future jailbreak to conserve exploits in the ongoing cat-and-mouse game with Apple.

    At this point, all we know for sure is that for unknown reasons, the code was potentially released by an unknown party Wednesday. It's unclear at this time if this was the genuine SHAtter or a fake designed to throw Apple off the scent, as people who claim to have the leaked version are reporting trouble getting it to compile. However, Apple should be able to figure out pretty quickly if it is genuine or not. Meanwhile, in a furious back-and-forth on Twitter (blowing up the phones of all their followers all Wednesday afternoon), p0sixninja accused MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev-Team of being responsible for leaking the exploit. MuscleNerd rejected the accusation, explaining that it would make no sense for him to do so as he will need to be able to jailbreak the iPhone 5 in order to unlock it. MuscleNerd also noted that there were 15 to 20 others in the room when pod2g showed his SHAtter code for the first time, so the pool of suspects is large.

    If SHAtter is truly burned, it's potentially not catastrophic, as p0sixninja says another "untether bootrom exploit" is supposedly on the way. However, if we've lost a valuable tool due to some personal drama among devs, it's a sad statement about the jailbreaking community.

    If this is true about the leak "SHAtter", what a childish thing to do if it is indeed true. Wow.

    It's unfortunate, but in the end, who really cares? They've had this untethered exploit for the last couple months but didn't use it for 4.2.1. They just released an experimental 4.2.1 untethered jb for mac owners 9 hrs ago. My point is, who cares what cards you have up your sleeve if you never play em?

    You think that would make front page news.

    Hopefully this will be the last time an episode of "as the world turns" plays out in the jailbreak community

    People like you are quite stupid.

    Limera1n is for ALL device, Shatter is for only A4 devices.

    Why release shatter when Limera1n is already able to JB 4th gen and below? Shatter and Limera1n are BOTH tether JB.
