    Its all an April fools joke folks! If you followed the history of hackers you would know that what we primarily do is to set information free, NOT sell out to big brother!
    Funny thing thou, seeing all the reactions all over the web!

    I say "we" as a sort of fellowship of hackers,(me going back to the early 80s according to others! dumdiudum.)

    I have no part of the iphone dev team, but they have struck me as a very dedicated, thight group of people that have set out to liberate everything locked, that relates to the iphone and ipod touch (PSP,xbox,PS3 and so on).

    Yay! Happy April!

    the aim of hacking is to break the roles , not to go under, if they hacked the phone is for a reason , as long as that reason exists they will exist, if not them others will.. if they stop working in this, they will open the door for others to try.
    DFU Restore Mode:

    1. Power phone OFF. 2. Hold power + home for 10 seconds. 3. Let go of power and continue to hold home until iTunes finds the phone.

They have proved themselves to be honourable, kept their word, and have worked for the benefit of the iPhone community.

    All you witch-hunters/burners out there, tell me that you would turn down a large monetary offer for work that you have been doing for the past year (for free) so quickly? I bet most of you would take the deal. So much for notions like "trust" and "loyalty". Whatever the outcome, thanks Dev Team for all the various version of Jailbreak, AnySIM, and soon for Pwnage.

    I was going to reply to this comment but I decided not to. All I have to say I don't consider a sell out a bad thing like I said everyone has a price with me my software is not worth any price I don't care thats why I program for Linux. I love the GNU and I rather have other improve my ideas but I dont need money for my software cause its a hobby for me

    3) Can someone tell me where can i find the firmware 1.2 for iphone to start messing around with it.

    Wow - the dev site has a mystery:

    Look at the source code for the Jobs image -- there is a comment that says:

    maybe use color set 73746576656a6f62736861636b65646a75 here?

    WTF is that number? It looks two digits too long to be a md5sum of the Pwned tool or the 2.0 beta firmware (which is available floating around on torrent sites for those that want to get their hands on it in anticipation of the Pwned release).

    Even though it's numeric heavy, it looks to be a hexadecimal representation (I don't see anything past an 'f').

    It's so early in the morning. I can't think straight. But for those that see this comment, I'd appreciate any brainstorming.
