    The famous France hacker known as pod2g just posted a new post on his own blog, revealing the progress of iPhone jailbreak. Pod2g’s blog, pod2g’s iOS blog, is a blog talking about iOS security research. The hacker said that he is now focusing on the jailbreak of A5 devices (iPhone 4S and iPad 2), while work of jailbreak for the A4 devices (iPhone4/iPhone3GS/iPad1/iPod touch3/4) has been transferred to chronic-dev team, with the core jailbreak work being finished by him. The chronic-dev team will finish, test, integrate and release the A4 jailbreak ASAP.

    iPhone JailbreakBesides the blog post, pod2g also uploaded a new video demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4, which has been going viral on YouTube, reaching nearly 6 million clicks within only two days. Talking about the jailbreak work and the video, pod2g wrote “Here is a new video demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4. This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods. The jailbreak is near ready for prime time (excluding 4S and iPad 2). Patches are the same as redsn0w’s. Expect the same level of stability. Some more days to wait. Be patient, we’re doing our best.” Check the iPhone 4 jailbreak demo video bellow. And download iPhone 4 jailbreak demo video from YouTube with Free YouTube Downloader or YouTube Downloader for Mac on Mac computers.

    Generally speaking, when the jailbreak tool is transferred to jailbreak teams, it means that the jailbreak has been finished. Things need to do are just testing the compatibility and stability of the tool and program, and then finish the common things related to jailbreak tool releasing, average for about 1 week or several weeks.

    Pod2g also said that he is very confidential in jailbreaking A5 devices, and in the following time, he will focus on A5 JB to find a path quick. Stay tuned for more detailed information about A5 jailbreak.

  • Jailbreaking your iDevices: tips and tools for you to hack your iOS devices

    Posted on September 8th, 2011 David Brooks | 100 comments

    To break the limitations on software installing and install more software programs on your iPhone, iPod, iPad, or AppleTV, you may want to jailbreak your iDevices. But with so many different hardware, firmware, and software combinations out there, you may find that the jailbreak process of your iPhone, iPod or iPad would not be as simple as most online jailbreaking tutorials shows, as you need to figure out the right jailbreak tools for your on-hand devices if it is the first time for you to jailbreak your devices. And this post would explain the important tips and the proper tools for you to successfully jailbreak iDevices.

    Jailbreak iDeviceTips for you to attention while jailbreaking your devices:

    1. Upon your hardware: You need to firstly make clear about your device hardware, on which you want to jailbreak. Check Identifying iPhone models for iPhone or Identify iPod Models for iPod Touch to know the models of your devices. As for iPad, the iPad 2 has a front-facing camera while the original iPad does not. Apple TV can also be jailbroken.

    2. Upon your software: To determine your iOS firmware, on your device, open the Settings app, then navigate to General; About; Version. Alternately, you can plug in your device to your computer and open iTunes. Your Software Version is listed under Summary.

    3. Upon Mac or PC: Which computer you would sync your devices to, Mac computer or Windows PC. Different jailbreak tools are available upon different targets.

    4. To tether jailbreak or not: This means that whether or not the hack will remain after a device reboot. In most cases, an untethered jailbreak is more desirable because you won’t need to re-hack your device in the event you switch it off and on. Of course, certain hardware/firmware configurations only support a tethered jailbreak.

    Tools to choose for jailbreak

    Browser-based JailbreakMe tool: for any device (including iPad 2) running iOS 4.3-4.3.3 or iPhone 4 CDMA/Verizon running 4.2.6-4.2.8. Navigate mobile-Safari to jailbreakme.com by using your device itself.

    Redsn0w for Mac OS X/Windows or PwnageTool for OS X: Download redsn0w for Mac OS X or Windows or PwnageTool for OS X for any device except iPad 2 running 4.3.4-4.3.5 or iPhone 4 CDMA/Verizon running 4.2.9-4.2.10. Notice: this is a tethered jailbreak.

    Any device except iPad 2 running developer build up to iOS 5 beta 6: If you’re on a Mac, you can use redsn0w. If you’re on Windows somehow (odd, considering developers must use OS X to run Xcode), Sn0wbreeze works as well. This is also a tethered jailbreak and generally not recommended.

    Seas0npass: Seas0npass lets you perform an untethered jailbreak to your Apple TV (2nd Generation) running 4.3, allowing you to SSH into your set top box and play otherwise unsupported media.

    Any device/software not listed above: Older, discontinued devices are pretty much all jailbreakable. JailbreakMe works on many older firmwares so it’s always worth trying but if that doesn’t work, PwnageTool for Mac and redsn0w for Mac/PC are your Swiss army knives of jailbreaking for older devices.
