Seas0nPass Jailbreak Utility for the Apple TV(0)
FireCore has announced Seas0nPass, a new jailbreak tool designed specifically for the Apple TV.
Seas0nPass was created exclusively for the AppleTV user, as previously no AppleTV specific jailbreak tools were available. Seas0nPass allows you to easily create custom AppleTV IPSW files and restore them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app). Also included is a simple ‘tethered boot’ option which aids in using newer AppleTV firmwares when an ‘un-tethered’ jailbreak is not yet available.
What can I do with Seas0nPass?
Seas0nPass is available as a free download and we will be posting a tutorial on how to Read More
Chronic Dev-Team is Working on Their Own Untether for iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak(0)
The Chronic Dev-Team is working on their own untether for the iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak that will not require iOS4.2b3 SHSH blobs, according to tweets made today by p0sixninja.
A lot of people are saying another tethered jailbreak is pointless, I agree. Focusing on getting untethered before release
@p0sixninja I assume you are talking about Greenpois0n? Are you implementing Musclenerd’s untether or do you have your own?
@tahu363 we’re implementing our own
@p0sixninja I’m assuming “your own” will require 4.2b3 shsh? And thanks for your guys work!
@Capsfanchad lol no
Synchronicity updated to 2.0(0)
Synchronicity is a popular jailbreak mod that allows you to use your iPhone while it’s syncing with iTunes. Instead of being stuck with a lock screen while your iPhone is syncing with your computer, Synchronicity allows you to run apps, make calls, etc. Basically anything is fair game, except for the iPod app (to prevent data corruption with iTunes).
This mod has been a favorite of ours since it was released back in August; it even made it pretty far up our “Top 10 Jailbreak Apps for 2010“ list. ?If you don’t have Synchronicity, you should.
Synchronicity was recently updated to 2.0 status. The mod was already super lightweight and unobtrusive, but 2.0 makes it even better with a design tweak and some enhancements…
Previously, Synchronicity would display as a red, tethering-style bar over the iPhone’s status bar. This notified that a sync with iTunes was occurring, and removed that annoying Read More
Geohot Untether Jailbreak for Some iDevices(0)
Geohot may have an untether for some jailbroken devices running iOS 4.2.1, according to a tweet by MuscleNerd.
@ipodguy79 I hear geohot does have an untether actually! Though not for all devices.
Geohot is the hacker behind limera1n which is currently being used to jailbreak iOS devices. It was recently discovered that Geohot registered Rubyra1n.com; however, that name is thought to be reserved for a future exploit.
Currently, only some iOS 4.2.1 devices can be untethered via a ‘backup plan’ untether from the iPhone Dev-Team. Comex is also working on an untether which will hopefully be available soon.
RedSn0w Gets Updated to Help Boot Tethered Jailbreak(0)
The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w to easily boot devices that are running a tethered jailbreak.
We’ve updated redsn0w to include “one-click” support for those of you running the tethered 4.2.1 jailbreak. Using command-line arguments, you can now bypass the screens you’d normally see as you use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered for now”.
The available command line arguments are:
For example, redsn0w for Read More
Geohot New Jailbreak Rubyra1n(0)
Domain registration records reveal that Geohot has registered the domain Rubyra1n.com, according to thetechjournal.
According to Whois records, Blackra1n, Limera1n & Rubyra1n are registered under George Hotz.It looks like, Geohot registered Limera1n & Rubyra1n back in March, 2010. With that said, don’t expect a Rubyra1n Jailbreak anytime soon. Because, Limera1n exploit is capable of jailbreaking all current iOS Device. So, it seems, GeoHot is going to use Rubyra1n, for the Next Gen iPad [iPad 2] / Next Gen iPhone [iPhone 5 / CDMA iPhone].
The limera1n domain was discovered in April and did end up being used for an important jailbreak release. Hopefully, rubyra1n has an exciting future as well. Currently, the domain is parked with GoDaddy.
iRecovery Hack for iPod Nano 6G(0)
iRecovery has been modified to send encrypted firmware files to the iPod nano 6G by developer Steven Troughton-Smith.
After some interesting discoveries by James Whelton, Troughton-Smith did some investigating and found what seems to be DFU mode. “Hold down the restart buttons until you get a black screen (it reboots twice) and iTunes sees the device and alerts you.”
After accomplishing this he modified iRecovery to send encrypted firmware files to the iPod which could finally bring about custom apps for the device.
