Chronic Dev Team has just released greenpois0n to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad.

Chronic Dev team had to delay the release of greenpois0n after Geohot released limera1n as they decided to incorporate the same USB bootrom exploit used in limera1n instead of using the SHAtter exploit so that it can be used sometime in the future. greenpois0n works only on iOS 4.1 and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad. iPhone 4 users can use Tiny Umbrella if they want to upgrade to iOS 4.1 to preserve the baseband so that they can unlock it using Ultrasn0w after jailbreaking their iPhone.

The iPhone Dev Team had released a beta version of Redsn0w for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 couple of weeks back but it was only for Mac users.

They have just released the beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 for Windows users as well.

They have posted the following update on their blog for Windows users: Continue reading »

It sure didn’t take long for the dev community to hack into Apple TV’s iOS build. One of the first payouts is a port of Apple TV’s “lowtide” 10-foot user interface to an iPod touch as briefly demonstrated in the first video after the break. While not very useful on such a small display, that could change when ported to the iPad’s bigger 10-inch display. In fact, that might be Apple’s plan according to our friend Erica Sadun who’s been busily spelunking the Apple TV’s disk image. She posits that the iPad could launch the lowtide UI when responding to AirPlay requests in a future iOS build. Continue reading »

So we just got our hands on the new iPod touch… and boy is it small. As you would expect, the functionality of the device is identical to the iPhone 4, as well as the functions of the front and back cameras. In essence, it’s a much thinner iPhone 4, with no cell radio, of course. The design is relatively in keeping with previous touches, so no major surprises there, but the inclusion of that A4 chip, higher resolution screen, and front and back cameras makes it a far more versatile device. Take a look at the gallery below if you’re wondering just how much of a sliver this is — it makes the iPhone 4 look… fat. Continue reading »
