Hey jailbreaking friends, I've found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don't expect a release soon, but I'm gonna work hard in it.
Pod2g has found many vulnerabilities in the past including famous SHAtter.
This was the only case when a bridesmaid put on white clothes, stood behind the bride and nobody had objected.
Renee Armstrong couldn’t get at the wedding’s place and decided to use her white iPad and FaceTime service to attend it virtually. The bridesmaid stood by for the wedding ceremony and managed to get into the wedding’s photos as the groomsman always held the iPad in the public eye.
A Norwegian woman was driving her car, with the iPhone plugged in the stereo playing some music when suddenly, her iPhone explodes. The glass shattered, the iPhone broken on its back. Of course, she took the iPhone to the nearest Apple Store but the assistant said that they couldn’t repair it under Apple’s policies because an iPhone wasn’t meant to be working under such temperatures. Apple does not replace a device if it has been used under normal conditions. But freezing is normal in some countries.
Apple is investigating an issueб which connects with the way how third-party "slide-on" cases for the iPhone 4 can interact with the iPhone 4's glass back and trap dirt and other material between the two layers and cause scratching that can lead to cracking or shattering of the device's glass.
Famous hacker Geohot is back and today he released the latest iOS 4.1 jailbreak. It is called LimeRa1n and supports iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G with iOS firmwares 4.0-4.1 and beyond. It can also hacktivate your device, so there is no need in phone SIM-cards and other tricks.
This software is still in beta and was updated 3 times in last several hours. So use with caution.
There is Windows version only for now. Geohot plans to release LimeRa1n for Mac and Linux soon. You can Download it here.
Some users report that they have jailbroken their iOS 3.2.2 iPads successfully with limera1n, while others report that they tried, but failed.
Do not forget to backup.
For many users of iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.2 now there is a hope to perform jailbreak using LimeRa1n and unlock using ultrasn0w. We recommend NOT to do it if you have not saved your SHSH keys. You can try, but if something goes wrong without SHSH keys you'll have to restore to iOS 4.1, and there is no unlock for iOS 4.1 (possibly forever). Just wait for PwnageTool utility.
DevTeam reported that Limera1n uses a different exploit than SHAtter, so they will not release SHAtter utility, they don't want let Apple fix both security holes. However they plan to release PwnageTool using the same exploit.
You can find our LimeRa1n tutorials tutorials:
Today the new Apple TV has been jailbroken by hacker MuscleNerd from DevTeam. He used the SHAtter exploit. This means that hackers were able to gain full access to the device. Here is MuscleNerd's comment on twitter:
AppleTV 2G SHAttered and jailbroken (not quite sure how to run apps yet!)
MuscleNerd and the rest of the Dev-Team will probably create a public release of some utility soon. Here is a youtube video showing off the jailbroken device:
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:
Third-party solutions provider iFixYouri somehow obtained a complete iPhone 4 shell without any internal components to test its glass face. After third attempt of dropping the device from 3,5 feet the glass panel was totally shattered as it may be seen on the photo above.
It is interesting that the surface onto which the handset was dropped was not revealed. It is also likely that the device will be more susceptible to damage with internal hardware presence.

iPhone display is quite strong. As you can see on the video, the glass is completely shattered, but the touchscreen still works perfectly:
But if something like this happen, try not to use the iPhone with your fingers as you can cut with some small splinter.
Medialets have put together a comparison of the iPhone App Store and the Android Marketplace after the first 24 hours. There is nothing really Earth-shattering in the data, but it does provide some insight into the similarities between iPhone and G1 users. Basically, it illustrates that both parties are interested in the same sorts of apps, given the fact that the distributions are fairly similar.
