Apple TV software ported to iPod Touch



The developer Dustin Howett has managed to port AppleTV software called Lowtide to an iPod Touch and run it under iOS 4.1. You can see it on a demo video below. It's really amazing how compatible these new systems are.

Here are comments from the developer:

This is FrontRow, as shipped with the AppleTV 2 (ARM), running on the iPod touch, 4th Generation. It doesn't respond well to touch input, nor does it like the resolution of the device.

iPod Touch 4G with iOS 4.1 is jailbroken



jailbreak-ios41-ipod4g

The new exploit is called SHAtter. It was developed by hacker pod2g a few months after hacker p0sixninja from the Chronic Dev Team discovered the crash. The same exploit can be used to jailbreak iPhone 4 and iPad with new firmwares. So iOS 4.1 and maybe even iOS 4.2 is not a problem any more. Soon we will see the utilities from DevTeam to perform the jailbreak.

The DevTeam published a video if a jailbroken iPod Touch 4G. Take a look:

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with RedSn0w 0.9.6 b1



redsn0w-0-9-6-b1

DevTeam recently released new version of redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 4.1. New RedSn0w 0.9.6 b1 supports iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.1 running on iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G.

There is only Mac OS X x86 version, that you can download here.

Redsn0w is easy to use:

  1. Download firmware here.
  2. Launch redsn0w 0.9.6 b1
  3. Select your stock 4.1 or 4.0 ipsw (you’ve already used this to update your device to 4.1 or  4.0)
  4. Select “Install Cydia” and any of the other options shown above, then click “Next”.  Use DFU mode to install the jailbreak.

As usual DevTeam reminds us:

IF YOU USE THE ULTRASN0W UNLOCK, PLEASE WAIT FOR PWNAGETOOL TO SUPPORT 4.1.  DO NOT USE REDSN0W

That’s because to use redsn0w at 4.1, you need to already have updated to official 4.1 from Apple.  If you do that, you lose the ultrasn0w unlock (possibly forever).
