Many games from AppStore are hacked



Apple's Fairplay DRM, which protects all the applications you download from iTunes, has been hacked. The method for hacking this has actually been around for a while, but has been recently applied to Super Monkey Ball and distributed into the wild. To do this, you'll need a jailbroken iPhone and SSH installed (to transfer the game and to fiddle with permissions). The theory is a bit techy and complex, but the execution isn't too insane. iPhone developers are disappointed about this :)

New version 2.0.0.3 of WinPwn released.

2.0.0.3 fixes the Ipwner crash problem and 16xx errors. It will also fix the iPod ipswBuilder failure bug.

Notes:

  • Support for WinXP and Vista 32/64bit. Note Windows 2003/2008 server (Yes SERVER) are not supported neither is Windows 95 or Windows 3.11
  • You MUST do a full uninstall of winpwn before installing the new version
  • Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes ( Currently 7.7)
  • WinPwn uses 300MB of ram at peak due to the ipsw being extracted in memory
  • You must first click browse and load an IPSW to use WinPwn (i thought this was clear)
  • For 2.0 only the *5A347_Restore.ipsw files are valid. The 345 image will not work
  • If you see Failed to load image catalog/payload catalog, this is fine and won't cause problems
  • If you already have service with AT&T do not activate or install Youtube Fix

Fixes:

  • Cydia/XP/Writing root FS bug.
  • Failed to remove ipsw directory after a ipswBuild failure.
  • iPwner now only accepts custom ipsws.
  • Remove 345 ipsw support. WinPwn only supports 347 2.0 ipsw's.

PwnageTool 2.0.1 released



Yesterday there was a release of PWNage 2.0. Now version 2.0.1 is avaliable.

Here is the list of bugfixes:

  • It auto-finds the bl39 and bl46 files better, if they’re on your computer
  • It creates the ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/ folder if not present, which should help with some 1600 errors people have been having.
  • Many people have reported the PwnageTool not starting up at all (the icon never stops bouncing). This issue should be resolved now.
  • The Sparkle AppCast URL is fixed in this version, so automatic updates should work for future releases.

Because of the AppCast URL fix, we recommend that everyone who downloaded PwnageTool 2.0 get this version, if they want to stay up to date automatically.

If PwnageTool 2.0 pwned your phone correctly the first time, you do not need to pwn again with 2.0.1.

The file can be found on BigBoss_’s repository, or at Hackint0sh.

If you choose to download it from other mirrors, you may want to verify that the SHA1 of the file is 10b6c7dc22286e7b70c3d5a92cda7d117426fda9.

PwnageTool 2.0 released - jailbreak and unlock for 2.0 firmware



pwnage 20

Now older IPhone users users can upgrade to firmware 2.0 and IPhone 3G users have a possibility to have jailbreaked IPhones. That is because PwnageTool 2.0 is released today. Download links are: mirror1, mirror2, mirror3.

Just a reminder: this tool jailbreaks and unlocks older iPhones, and jailbreaks iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touches. No unlock for Iphone 3G yet. The supported firmware is 2.0 only. Platform is Mac OS.

If you get Error 1600 from iTunes (or if you see in your log a failure to repare x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw), try: mkdir “~/Library/iTunes/Device Support” ;  if that directory already exists, remove any files in it.  Then re-run PwnageTool.

Reminder: as of right now, there are no apps out for 2.0. Over the next few days some will come out. So do not update yet if you have some favorite 1.1.x apps you are using! 2.0 will not run 1.1.4 apps

UPDATE: version 2.0.1 is avaliable

IPhone application pricing update



Pinchmedia provided new report of prices for IPhone application in AppStore. The percentage of applications that are free is falling. However competition among paid applications is leading to price cuts - the most common price is $0.99. Almost 69% of paid applications are now $4.99 or less. $9.99 remains the second-most popular price. As of this morning, Pinch Media tracked 798 applications in the AppStore - 161 (20.2%) free, 637 (79.8%) paid.

Here are the results:

Compare them with the ones, that were presented a week ago just after the AppStore opening: IPhone application price.

Free vs paid IPhone applications by category



Pinchmedia recently announced new report regarding IPhone applications (take a look at the previous one here). They counted free and paid applications in each category. Guess what the results are:

News and social networking are disproportionately free, since it's difficult to charge for content that's freely available elsewhere and social networks grow in value with the number of participants. Entertainment and games are disproportionately paid, reflecting a belief that people will pay money to have fun. Since the AppStore's applications are disproportionately entertainment and games (helped along by a lot of $0.99 e-books), the AppStore's applications are predominantly paid. The most common price for an application in the 'games' category is still $9.99, although the second-most common price is $1.99.

Paid applications ranged in price from $0.99 to $69.99, with the most common price points being $0.99 (85 applications), $9.99 (82 applications), and $4.99 (62 applications). A bar graph of iPhone application price distribution can be viewed in the beginnings of this post. Of course every day there are going to be more and more IPhone applications avaliable in iTunes store.

IPhone applications are in iTunes Store



Here are the news from Apple: "When the iPhone 3G goes on sale tomorrow, more than 500 native applications will be available on the revolutionary new App Store — including more than 125 free applications."

But the applications are already there!! Because in some parts of the world it is already July 11. And what is great, there are many free applications. For example, Remote, AIM, Google Mobile, NYTimes, Myspace Mobile.

Users can download applications directly from new IPhones or through iTunes.
