  • Dev-Team jailbreaks the iPhone3G and suggests fixes for 10.5.6 PwnageTool issues

    iPhone owners have been foaming at the mouth for an iP3G unlocking solution since its release and it seems that hack is right around the corner. The Dev-Team has announced that they have successfully done the seemingly¬†impossible¬†and will make the hack available via PwnageTool and QuickPwn sometime around the New Year. Which is just in time for Steve Jobs to announce something new at… Read More

  • Jailbreaking the G1: That sounds odd, right?

    A cabal of tinkers have managed to get root access on the G1 using telnetd. Now, whether or not that constitutes “jailbreaking” (which is an awkward word to use considering Android is supposed to be an open source operating system from the get-go) or something a little less dramatic is another matter. Or, to quote a Gizmodo commenter: This reminds me of the Spongebob episode… Read More

  • Yep, iPhone firmware 2.2 is still vulnerable to jailbreaking

    When the developer world first got glimpse of the iPhone 2.2 firmware back in late September, many were surprised to find out that nothing had been done to try and block users from jailbreaking (that is, hacking the handset to allow third party applications and modifications not approved by Apple). Nearly a month later, a second beta release of the firmware is in the hands of developers, and… Read More

  • iPhone 2.2 beta software seeded, still vulnerable to jailbreaking

    A beta release of the iPhone v2.2 software began seeding to developers yesterday. While much of the developer community is still digging to try to figure out what exactly changed in this release, the iPhone-dev team has already torn it apart. At least in its current state, v2.2 is vulnerable to the same jailbreaking methods already freeing handsets around the world. They do note that the… Read More

  • Ten seconds to tether with iPhoneModem

    We already know how Apple feels about tethering, which is sometimes Apple-legal and sometimes not. However, for jailbroken phones you now have what is promised as a quick and easy way (10 second-easy, that is) to tether your laptop to your iPhone. On Saturday, Addition released iPhoneModem for iPhones using the Cydia package manager. Apple has been dragging their feet in responding to… Read More

  • Pwnage 2.0.2 now available

    Jeez. Some one buy the iPhone Dev Team a week on a Carnival Cruise or something. Those guys just never stop. This morning they released Pwnage 2.0.2, allowing just about anyone to jailbreak any iPhone (2G and 3G) running software version 2.0.1. As always, OS X users get the goods first, until some Windows fan comes along and makes the port. Take the normal precautions of course – there… Read More

  • Listen to XM radio on your iPhone with uXM


    Ron and Fez, noon to 3pm This is pretty cool, and I hate damn near everything. It’s an application for jailbroken iPhones (and iPod touches) called uXM that lets you listen to XM Satellite Radio. Yes, XM is reportedly working on a proper application to launch with the App Store, but that’ll cost you money. This uXM is free, provided you already subscribe to XM. You can find it in… Read More

  • IP3G to stop us unlocking firmware like it's our job – or perhaps that was the point?

    http://www1.funnyordie.com/public/flash/fodplayer.swf?36e2ccefHuman Giant – Corn Chowder w/ Rob Riggle on FunnyOrDie.com With O2 and AT&T reporting contract signings at their respective sales points, I think the idea of an unlocked iPhone 3G will soon become moot. If you can’t get one without signing on the dotted line, what’s the value in pulling it off your local network? Read More
