Thread: Wired Article on JailBreaking

  1. #1
    Default Wired Article on JailBreaking
    Wired posted an article today that talks about Jailbreaking and how it has evolved.

    When he was 17, George Hotz poured hundreds of hours of his summer vacation into a special project: learning the iPhone’s secrets. His unpaid labor eventually paid off. With the help of a soldering iron, he was the first to unlock the iPhone, delivering the handset to international networks before Apple had a chance to.
    It also mentioned how George looks back at the first unlock as easier than others.

    “It did take 500 hours, but thinking back to some of the stuff I’ve done now, the first iPhone was incredibly easy,” Hotz said in a phone interview
    The article goes forth to talk about how the stores in jailbreaks have come and moved about, and how Saurik moved in.

    It ends with added stuff by George about how he loves to hack the iPhone, and how he views the recent job posting by Apple for a iPhone security expert.

    Hotz doubted a security expert could block his efforts. In fact, he said he’s already discovered a brand new exploit that will jailbreak and unlock Apple’s fourth-generation iPhone — presumably due in stores summer of 2010 – even though he hasn’t touched it.

    “Personally I love that Apple keeps the iPhone closed,” Hotz said. “This is a personal hobby; it’d be no fun if Apple didn’t have it closed anymore. Get a Jailbreak cop and then I’ll show them what I can really do.”
