Apple iPhone 5 to Have LTE Technology?

3/31/2011 09:30:00 PM - 0 comments

The new iPhone rumor is suggesting that the Cupertino, California-based Apple won’t be releasing the fifth generation iPhone – the iPhone - 5 at WWDC in June. Tech site TechCrunch is reporting that iOS 5 released will be pushed back to the fall, and the company will not announce the iPhone 5 this summer.
It is widely speculated that the new LTE technology affecting the company’s decision in releasing the iPhone 5.

“TechCrunch contributor Steve Cheney (who nailed the timing of the Verizon iPhone last year), believes that a fall iPhone 5 launch makes LTE much more likely. He currently puts the odds at zero to ten percent for LTE if the iPhone 5 launched this summer (again, not happening), 50 percent if it comes in the fall, and 100 percent if it comes in January.

A fall timeframe would give Apple a more vetted and lower power Qualcomm chip for LTE, Cheney says. When the Verizon iPhone was unveiled in January, Apple COO Tim Cook addressed the LTE issue directly. “The first generation LTE chipsets force some design compromises. Some of which we would not make,” he said. If Cheney is right, that may not be such an issue later this year.


On the other hand, it’s tough rival, Google’s Android-based smartphone will be geared with the new LTE technology and it is all set to storm the market this Fall. And for Apple, the iPhone that has a capability to operate on LTE technology is the best way to compete against its fierce competitor. As we all know, the iPhone maker does not adopt a new technology until it is proven to be stable. If you remember, apple introduces the first ever iPhone using EDGE technology instead of 3G.

SlashGear backed TechCrunch on its speculation:

“That later date might allow for the inclusion of 4G LTE connectivity, in an attempt to better take on what’s expected to be a growing number of LTE-equipped Android devices.
A Q4 2011 iPhone 5 release might allow Apple more flexibility in including LTE functionality, with Qualcomm’s newer-generation 4G chipsets available by that point. Apple claimed that the compromises inherent in first-gen LTE radios led them to bypass the technology in the Verizon iPhone 4; however, Verizon has also been vocal that it was its LTE network that attracted Apple’s attention, and has since said that Apple LTE devices are indeed in the pipeline.”

So far, there’s no official announcement form Apple regarding the issue. Stay tuned!

Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 Demonstrated on Video - Beta Version Coming Very Soon

3/30/2011 07:42:00 PM - 0 comments

We have some good news for the entire iPhone jailbreak community. The popular iPhone hacker and an iPhone security specialist have posted a YouTube video to demonstrate his new untethered jailbreak method to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Esser posted a YouTube video on his account to showcase his untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak running on his iPod touch 4G. If you are unaware, an untethered jailbreak method is a jailbreak which allows you to restart your iOS device without need to re-jailbreak it. At the moment, you will be able to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 using PwnageTool and Sn0wbreeze, however, both jailbreak tools is offering tethered jailbreak only.

Now, Esser – also known as i0nic - has announced that he already handed the iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak exploit to iPhone Dev Team for beta testing. Fortunately, the undisclosed jailbreak exploit found in iOS 4.3 remains unpatched in the latest iOS 4.3.1 release. Here are some of the iOS devices that can be jailbroken on iOS 4.3.1 using this undisclosed exploit:

• iPhone 4
• iPhone 3GS
• iPhone 3G
• iPod Touch 4G
• iPod Touch 3G
• iPod Touch 2G
• iPad 1

The only iOS device which can not be jailbroken is the recently released iPad 2. Furthermore, Esser has provided more details about his untethered jailbreak solution:

Meanwhile everyone should have noticed that my prediction became true and Apple released iOS 4.3.1 in order to fix the PWN2OWN vulnerability in Safari.
It was very unlikely that Apple also fixed the kernel vulnerability I used for my untether exploit. Mainly because the kernelcache binary is about 8-10 MB in size and the likelihood that Apple finds the same vulnerability in that short amount of time was very low.
However you never know until you try it. So this morning when I woke up and saw that Sn0wbreeze 2.4 beta was released I thought it would be fun to create a new video.
Unfortunately Sn0wbreeze does not work with my iPad 1 and so I had to test with my iPod 4G.
In the video you can see how I switch off the iPod, then restart it, show the version, show that it is tethered and has the multitasking gestures, i show that you can buy ringtones and then I show cydia and the ninja jump game from last time.
Because several people misunderstood me in the past:
a. I repeatedly stated that I will not release a jailbreak tool – I will only give out the untether. I did not try yet, but if it is feasible the untether could be a cydia package.
b. While the vulnerability I use is in the iPad 2 kernel my untether will NOT SUPPORT the iPad 2, because there is no way to install it there (bootrom exploits fixed). – however Comex is working on that part.
c. I am not giving out any ETA again, because the Jailbreak community is simply nuts. Last time I gave an ETA and even before that had passed I got constantly insulted by people that were demanding an immediate release. Sorry guys the more you insult people with the knowledge to actually do what YOU WANT the less motivation there is to use our free time to give it to you.
d. The only reason why I did not finish the untether before the ETA was due to unexpected work overload in my real job. It had nothing todo with the untether being too hard or unreal.
e. I don’t know why the dev team has not released a redsn0w that does tethered jailbreak for 4.3.1 – I would prefer that to be available, cause sn0wbreeze obviously does not work 100% yet.
f. If you want to learn more about iPhone kernel hacking/exploitation you should come to SyScan Singapore at the end of April.http://syscan.org/index.php/sg/program

You can watch the video of iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak embedded below:

Pwn2own Charlie Miller Mobile Safari Exploit Not Fixed in iOS 4.3.1

3/30/2011 07:35:00 PM - 0 comments

We all know that the Cupertino, California-based apple is busy in patching / fixing jailbreak exploits and vulnerabilities on their iOS devices. We already reported that Apple already fixed the unreleased SHAtter exploit and the Limera1n hardware exploit used in numerous jailbreak tool on their iOS 4.3 and iPad 2. And recently, Apple releases the iOS 4.3.1 and fixed the exploit in iPad 2 that was being developed by Comex – the iPhone hacker / developer behind the JailbreakMe and Sprit jailbreak tool.

But fortunately, the iOS 4.3.1 does not fix the pwn2own bug that was discovered by Charlie Miller during the Pwn2own hacking contest where he successfully jailbreaks the recently released iOS 4.3 running on the fourth generation iPhone using the newly discovered Mobile Safari exploit. Miller tweeted the following:

“iOS 4.3.1 does not fix the pwn2own bug. It’s weird they fixed it in the next os x update after the contest, but not the next iPhone update.

More time for the bad guys to get their bindiff->iPhone exploit workflow going.”

Folks over at iClarified explain how the exploit works:

“The attack simply required that the target iPhone surfs to a rigged web site. On first attempt at the drive-by exploit, the iPhone browser crashed but once it was relaunched, Miller was able to hijack the entire address book.”

So, since this method is quite similar with Comex’s JailbreakMe, Comex may use this exploit to jailbreak the iPad 2 and he may develop it to JailbreakMe 3.0. Stay tuned!

Comex JailbreakMe iPad2 Jailbreak Exploit Leaked and Fixed in iOS 4.3.1

3/30/2011 07:29:00 PM - 0 comments

Couple of days ago, Comex, the well-known developer behind the JailbreakMe and Spirit jailbreak tool, demonstrated his jailbroken iPad 2 and said that he will release a new jailbreak method – JailbreakMe 3.0? – very soon. Now, unfortunately, Comex has just announced that Apple has fixed the iPad 2 jailbreak exploit in iOS 4.3.1.

Comex Announced following via Twitter:

As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.
I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.
It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess

Now, it seems like the Cupertino, California-based Apple is winning the cat and mouse game against iOS hackers. As previously reported, Apple already patched the exploit used in Limera1n jailbreak tool as well as the unreleased SHAtter exploit that was preserved to jailbreak future iOS devices, which include the upcoming iOS 5 and iPhone 5.

But the good news is that a new iPhone hacker, Stefan Esser, is working on a new untethered jailbreak method to jailbreak the iOS 4.3.1 on iPad 2 and on other iOS devices. It is reported that Esser will soon release the beta testing version of his ware. Since this is an untethered jailbreak, you will not have to connect your device into the computer every time you reboot.

At the moment, you will be able to jailbreak – tethered jailbreak - the iOS 4.3.1 on iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPad, using Sn0wbreeze 2.4 beta 1 and PwnageTool 4.2. Stay tuned.

iPad 2 Jailbreak Exploit Patched By Apple

3/30/2011 09:41:00 AM - 0 comments

We have just received word that Apple have actually patched the iPad 2 jailbreak exploit that was availabl in iOS 4.3.1. This is bad news for all of those who were relying on this exploit to jailbreak their iPad 2 and other iOS 4.3.1 devices.

According to Comex who is a very popular iPhone developer and hacker, Apple has patched up the exploit. Comex is well known for his userland based jailbreak tools such as Spirit and JailbreakMe and he confirmed in a series of tweets on Twitter that Apple had indeed patched his kernel exploit starting from iOS 4.3.1. This was the exact exploit that was used to jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.1 right after it launched in the US.

Here’s what @comex had to say on twitter:

@comex: as noticed by @onaj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.

@comex: it stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3 but was magically found in time for 4.3.1 well, go go @MuscleNerd and @ion1c I guess.
This exploit had previously been available from iOS 4.0.2 right the way through to iOS 4.3 but it has been patched by Apple in iOS 4.3.1. The good news however is that the untether exploit found in iOS 4.3 by Stefan Esser is still present in iOS 4.3.1 and at this point it really does seem to be the only hope for the jailbreak community.

There is a tethered jailbreak solution available for iOS devices for both Windows and Mac users and there are plenty of great step by step tutorials on how to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch if this is something that interests you. If you prefer to wait for the untethered jailbreak then keep your eyes open because as soon as we have any news we will be sure to let you know.

We have some good news for all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users who internationally / accidentally updated their device to the recently released iOS 4.3.1. Well, we all know that apple already launches the iOS 4.3.1 for for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPad, iPod Touch 4G, and iPod Touch 3G, but the good news is that you will be able to jailbreak this new iOS using the PwnageTool 4.2 for Mac OS X. Yes, it is the same PwnageTool released by the iPhone Dev Team that jailbreaks iOS 4.2.1. This was made possible because of the help of DjayB6 on the 4.3.1 jailbreak bundle and Universal Ramdisk Fixer.

From RedmondPie:

“The just released iOS 4.3.1 firmware update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been successfully jailbroken, courtesy of some swift work by DjayB6 on iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak bundle, and Universal Ramdisk Fixer. The jailbreak though is tethered only for now, which means that you will have to boot it into jailbroken state every time you reboot.”

Additionally, PwnageTool 4.2 for Mac OS X is a tethered jailbreak method only, and it is not a stable jailbreak. This only means that you will have to use the tetheredboot utility on your Mac Os X every time you reboot.

Furthermore, iPhone users who rely on Ultrasn0w carrier unlock will greatly benefit on this because they will be able to unlock their iPhone. PwnageTool 4.2 has capability to jailbreak iPhones on iOS 4.3 while maintaining / preserving its unlockable baseband and restring the device in a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.3.1. But as mentioned previously, this is still unstable jailbreak method. So ig you aren’t sure on what you are doing, it is advisable to stay away from iOs 4.3.1 and PwnageTool 4.2 and wait for the iPhone Dev Team to update their jailbreak tool for this new software update. Stay tuned.

3/25/2011 09:05:00 AM - 1 comments

As you all know, Cydia is the App Store for all jailbroken idevices. The only problem is, that it has always been really slow. There are huge delays when pulling data from their servers and it can be a bit of a nightmare when you want to download something in a hurry.

The good news, is that developer Jay Freeman (Saurik) has actually given this app a much needed speed boost. Here is what was highlighted on Twitter the other day.

@saurik: Just switched Cydia’s www over to the new "CDN->ELB" stack I’ve been building: requests to / from my apartment are down from 0.45s to 0.25s!

As you can see, Cydia speed really has been improved and according to Freeman he actually switched Cydia’s servers to a new CDN-ELB stack which has improved the request times from 0.45s to 0.25s. He also released a couple of graphs that actually how the improved responsiveness of Cydia over the space of a three month period and these are really impressive too.

Having Cydia running at a much faster speed is so much better and with this being the number one App Store for jailbroken idevices it really is a great idea. All we have to say is well done Jay and keep up the improvements. This really is the must have app for all the jailbreaking community and we can’t wait to see what you have for us next.

Now we’re going to show you how to us eye unofficial PwnageTool Bundle for Mac OS X to tethered jailbreak iOS 4.3 on same devices.

For those unaware, just like the Sn0wbreeze, the PwnageTool jailbreak tool is essential for iPhone unlockers. This is a special jailbreak tool that has a capability to jailbreak the iOS while preserving the unlockable baseband of your device so that you can unlock your iPhone (old baseband version) using the ltest version of the iPhone Dev Team’s Ultrasn0w 1.2, which can be downloaded in Cydia app Store once the device is running on a jailbroken iOS. This is a tethered jailbreak method. Meaning, you have to connect your device with Mac for successful reboot.

However, this tutorial is aimed for advanced jailbreakers/users as it requires a ramdisk, but we’ll try our best to keep it as simple as possible. You can follow our step-by-step to tethered jailbreak your iOS device with PwnageTool tutorial posted below:

Note: iPhone unlockers should stay away from this jailbreaking method because Ultrasn0w unlocking does not support iOS 4.3 due to ASLR implementation.

Download the Required Tools and Software:

How To Patch / Modify PwnageTool using custom bundles

In order to enable PwnageTool to jailbreak iOS 4.3 you need to modify it using the custom PwnageTool bundles.

Step 1: Right click on the PwnageTool which you download in Par-1 and then click on “Show Package Contents”.

Step 2: Navigate to this path /Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles and put the bundle folder which you downloaded for your device in Part 1 in this location.

Step 4: Browse for iPSW file (iOS 4.3) which you have already downloaded earlier.

Step 5: then, simply click the Build button to create custom firmware and save it on your PC.

Step 3: Now, install the custom cooked firmware by pressing the Alt/Option key and click on “Restore” in iTunes. Wait till the restoration completed. The device will reboot after it has been restored successfully.

How To Tethered Boot iOS Device

Agaian, there’s no available untethered jailbreak method for the iOS 4.3, so we need to tethered boot the device every time we reboot. You can use software called “tetheredboot” to boot your iOS device into a tethered jailbroken state.

Tetheredboot requires two files from iOS 4.3:

* kernelcache.release.n90,
* and iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu.

To get these files, change the extension of iOS 4.3 from .ipsw to .zip and then extract it. You will find them under /Firmware/dfu/ folder.

Put all these files and tetheredboot utility into a new folder on desktop and name it “tetheredboot”.

Method 1 to Invoke Tethered Boot:

Start terminal and run the following commands:
sudo –s
Type your admin password and run:
/Users/aamirusman/Desktop/tetheredboot/tetheredboot
/Users/aamirusman/Desktop/tetheredboot/iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu
/Users/aamirusman/Desktop/tetheredboot/kernelcache.release.n9
Replace “aamirusman” with the name of user on your Mac machine and “Desktop” with name of location where you placed the “tetheredboot” folder.

When prompt to put your device into DFU mode, just follow the same method you used in the previous step. After a short period of time you will see “Exiting libpois0n” in the terminal windows which indicates your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch will be booted within few moments.

Method 2 to Invoke Tethered Boot:

Put your device into DFU mode. Open the terminal and run the following commands.

cd /Users/username/Desktop/Tetherboot/
./tetheredboot iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu kernelcache.release.n90

That’s it. You now have a jailbroken iOS device on iOS 4.3.

We reported the changes from iOS 4.3 a few days back, and it really does look as if iOS 4.3.1 will simply fix bugs, hence the version numbering. Battery life seems a tad bit better, though that’s not scientific at all. Our source says we should continue to expect iOS 4.3.1 in the next 1-2 weeks, just as we previously reported.

Here’s the unofficial changelog of the unreleased iOS 4.3.1 courtesy by BGR:
- Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)

iPad 2 Jailbreak Rumors: New Bootrom Exploit and JailbreakMe

3/23/2011 08:20:00 PM - 0 comments
Last week we has informed you that Comex is the first iOS hacker that successfully jailbreak iOS 4.3 on the iPad 2. But today, we will find out a bit more information regarding the highly awaited iOS 4.3 jailbreak. In a reply to a Twitter users asking him regarding the exploit Comex had discovered in iOS 4.3, he said that he utilizes a userland exploit, which means the jailbreak might be applied directly from the device’s operating system, the same exploit used on his previous jailbreak tool JailbreakMe. And since it’s a userland exploit, it can be patched easily with just a simple software update, just like what Apple did with JailbreakMe.

Now, the good news is that, Comex has just confirmed that there's new bootrom exploit discovered by someone to jailbreak iPad 2 running iOS 4.3. Well, he might talking about i0nic’s (also known as Stefan Esser) untethered jailbreak method which is set to release very soon. However, with the rumors of iOS 4.3.1 coming in the next couple weeks, Esser might delay the release date of his untethered jailbreak, or thy might even save this exploit for after the iPhone 5 comes out.

Hoosiermo: @comex: is your new iPad 2 exploit in the boot rom? Or a userland exploit? Kinda curious. I am one of the lucky ones who landed one day one.

Comex: @Hoosiermmo: Userland, but I hear someone has a bootrom vulnerability that they might have exploited.

Though Comex already had a jailbroken iPad 2 on iOS 4.3, we didn’t get much more information about the jailbreak and its release date. It is speculated that this method will work only on iOS 4.3, but this has yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned!
