jailbreakme

Comex's jailbreak based on new PDF exploit was unofficially leaked recently. It looks like it will be released quite soon. Currently Jailbreakme.com shows the "coming soon" yellow sticky, that looks like the sticky Apple puts on its store right before new products hit the virtual shelves.

The new jailbreak is mostly for Apple iPad 2 users, because all other devices can be jailbroken with existing tools.

Apple’s iPhone 3GS going to compete with Android in India



iPhone3GS

On May 27 the iPhone 4 was officially put on the market of India with the price starting at 34,500 Indian rupees (around $760) for version of 16 GB with a two-year service agreement. But the price for iPhone as high as $760 (which the government is not satisfied with) makes the iconic item out of reach for the 41.6 percent of the India’s population that lives below the poverty line of $1.25 a day.

Apple will release two new iPhone models in late September



iphone5-iphone4s

According to Business Insider analyst Chris Whitmore reports that Apple plans to release not only the iPhone 5 this fall, but they will also release a cheaper version of the iPhone, the iPhone 4S.

This means that Apple will release a minor update to the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, as well as a major update called the iPhone 5.

"With Nokia and RIMM struggling," he writes, "the time is right for Apple to aggressively penetrate the mid range smart-phone market (i.e. $300-500 category) to dramatically expand its [total addressable market] and market share."

As Whitmore sees it, an iPhone 4S that is unlocked, priced around $349, and comes with a pre-paid voice plan would "drive significantly greater penetration" into an addressable market that has grown to include 1.5 billion potential customers in 98 countries, two thirds of whom prefer pre-paid plans.

The rumors about cheaper iPhone have been reports floating around for a long time. It's a pity that Whitmore only offers us his prediction without any evidence or inside knowledge.

Here is a summary of what we have in mind right now:

iPhone 5:

  • 4" screen
  • new design
  • dual core
  • 8MP camera
  • possible dual LED and/or dual camera
  • 64GB
  • 1080p video

iPhone 4S:

  • 3.5"
  • old design
  • single core
  • 5MP camera
  • 4GB Storage
  • 720p video

iPhone Hacker Geohot is working for Facebook



geohot

Geohot is famous iPhone and Sony Playstation hacker, the creator of blackra1n and limerain jailbreak methods, as well as blacksn0w unlock. Now he works at Facebook.

Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) recently mentioned this fact in an interview.

Geohot started working at Facebook in May and actually announced it on his Facebook account on June 17th:

"Facebook is really an amazing place to work...first hackathon over."

This means that we should not expect any new iPhone jailbreak and unlock utils from him.

iPhone 4 Gevey Sim unlock doesn't work with iOS 5 beta 2



geveyultra

Apple has blocked the ability to unlock the iPhone 4 using the Gevey SIM in recently released iOS 5.0 beta 2 firmware. MuscleNerd tweeted:

it's surprising Apple closed Gevey interposer hole in b2 rather than waiting until final (maybe they were under pressure)

gevey-sim-ios-5-beta-2-tweet

Gevey SIM was the only unlock for iPhone 4 users with basebands higher than 01.59. It uses the emergency dialer to force activate the locked baseband. MuscleNerd notes that its unlikely Gevey will try to battle Apple while iOS 5 is in the beta period.

Legal hardware unlock for iPhone 4 released



geveyultra

Gevey has released a new hardware unlock for iPhone 4 called Gevey Ultra SIM.

The main difference compared to the old Gevey unlock method is that you don't have to dial 112. dialing 112/911 and hanging up is illegal in most countries, now this problem is gone.

Gevey Ultra works with

  • iOS 4.0, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
  • Basebands 01.59, 02.10, 03.10.01, 04.10, 04.10.01

Some sources claim that Gevey Ultra works even with the latest iOS 5 beta 1.

If you have 01.59 baseband you can still use free software ultrasn0w unlock. For everything else - just buy Gevey Ultra for $35 here.

The installation is simple, but requires jailbreak. Good luck iOS 4.3.3 is jailbreakable. See our jailbreak instructions here (Mac OS) and here (Windows).

Take a look at the Gevey Ultra video demo:

Hacker iH8Sn0w released Sn0wBeeze 2.8 beta 2 with ability to perform untethered jailbreak of the old bootrom iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.0b1. For other devices the jailbreak is still tethered.

Most common iPhone passcodes



passcode

iPhone developer Daniel Amitay anonymously recorded and analyzed iPhone passcodes. The result is quite interesting. The 15% of all passcodes are represented only by 10 numbers. Here they are, the most common passcodes: 1234, 0000, 2580, 1111, 5555, 5683 (spells LOVE), 0852, 2222, 1212, 1998.

Formulaic passwords are never a good idea, yet 15% of all passcode sets were represented by only 10 different passcodes (out of a possible 10,000). The implication? A thief (or just a prankster) could safely try 10 different passcodes on your iPhone without initiating the data wipe. With a 15% success rate, about 1 in 7 iPhones would easily unlock--even more if the intruder knows the users’ years of birth, relationship status, etc.

Try to avoid these passwords.

Apple now sell unlocked iPhone 4 in the US



unlocked-iphone-4

Just like we have predicted Apple started selling unlocked iPhone 4's in the United States. iPhone 4 16GB version costs $649. The 32GB version is $749. An unlocked handset offers all of the features without a contract commitment and can be used on supported GSM networks.

All the features of iPhone 4 without a contract commitment. Use it on the supported GSM cellular network of your choice.

If you don’t want a multiyear service contract or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad, the unlocked iPhone 4 is the best choice. It arrives without a micro-SIM card, so you’ll need an active micro-SIM card from any supported GSM carrier worldwide.

The unlocked iPhone 4 requires an active micro-SIM card that you obtain from a supported GSM wireless carrier. Simply insert the micro-SIM card into the slot on your iPhone, connect to your Mac or PC using the USB cable, and launch iTunes on your computer to complete the setup.

You can buy unlocked iPhone 4 in Apple Store.
