It looks like iPhone Dev team is planning to release the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 today.

MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev team revealed this on Twitter:

It was a only a few days back that iPhone Dev Team had confirmed that the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak developed by iPhone hacking expert Stefan Esser is ‘solid’ and are hammering out some final issues. Continue reading »

AT&T is reportedly cracking down on use of MyWi, a Cydia tweak used to create a personal hotspot using your iPhone, according to ModMyi.

One user notes that AT&T first contact him with an SMS saying, “AT&T Free Msg: Did you know tethering your Smartphone to a computer requires a tethering plan? Pls call 888-860-6789 for details or visit att.com/dataplans.”

The SMS was then followed up with an email that warned he would be switched to the tethering plan if he continue to tether.

iOS 4.3 Untethered Jailbreak Will Likely Be Released Soon

i0n1c has announced that he will likely release his untether for the iOS 4.3 jailbreak before next weekend.

Because of several changes in iOS 4.3 in comparison to iOS 4.2.1 the jailbreak is NOT READY yet. That is what the *ALPHA* means. I need some time to check what kernel patches are actually required to work 100%ly.

However I recommend the dev-team or chronic-dev to first release a *tethered* iOS 4.3 so that everyone can test if their nice feature actually work. I guess most people require Mobile Substrate to work and AFAIK it does not work due to ASLR. It would be a waste if Apple kills an untethered jailbreak before Mobile Substrate works.

iPod Nano Hacked

It looks like iPod nano that was launched by Apple in September has been hacked by developer and hacker, James Whelton.

He has managed to remove an app icon from iPod nano’s Springboard and replace it with a blank space by bypassing the checks performed by the Nano OS.

Whelton explains:

I’ve successfully done a basic springboard hack, figured out how to bypass the cache comparison and uncovered some interesting stuff as whats to come on the iPod Nano. The springboard hack is just the removal of a app and creation of a blank space. Not that amazing, but whats important is the bypass of Nano’s cache comparison, which compares any modded SB file and reverts it if it doesn’t like it, this opens up the possibility of hacking and modding, while not adding bootloaders or any of that fun stuff.
You can checkout the video of the hacked iPod nano below: Continue reading »

We had reported yesterday that iPhone users who had unlocked their iPhone using a combination of PwnageTool or Redsn0w to update baseband to 06.15.00 and Ultrasn0w 1.2 for iOS 4.2.1 were observing poor battery life.

Developer @sbingner (author of popular jailbreak app – TetherMe) has figured out a way to fix the issue. He has released a jailbreak app called SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module). It tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with Ultrasn0w. Continue reading »
