iPhone hackers strike back at Apple

Unlocking and 3rd party apps are reportedly back

 

The Unofficial Apple Web log (www.tuaw.com) iPhone Dev Team has announced “Public iPhone 1.1.1 Jailbreak and published a zip file on the Web site containing a method to “jailbreak your 1.1.1 iPhone” in order to access all its files and install third party applications. 

The Web site claims that their new hack provides jailbreak, activation, and third party applications, unlike others that do not include the third party applications as of yet.  The site also claims that the iPhone can be hacked so that it can be used on any other GSM network besides AT&T, Inc.’s.  AT&T is the exclusive carrier for the iPhone in the U.S.

The latest hack reportedly gives iPhone users who have previously installed the OS X 1.1.1 update the ability to revert their iPhones back to the previous 1.0.2 update and then "jailbreak" it for third-party applications; this said to be occurring while updating the iPhone back to the 1.1.1 version without “slamming the cell door shut” and turning the iPhone into a brick. Both TUAW and iPhone Atlas have tested this  latest hack and claim that it works.  However, this presumes that the user has a pretty in-depth knowledge of the iPhone's command line interface.

A disclaimer warning users of the risks behind the iPhone Dev Team unlock is also posted that disclaims all liability for damage to an iPhone by following the instructions.  And the iPhone Dev Team doesn’t claim that the latest hack will fix iPhones that have previously been turned into bricks by the latest upgrade from Apple, Inc.

Another hacker group, the iPhoneSIMFree team, has announced that due to the hard work done by the iPhone Dev Team, the iPhoneSIMFree team can now unlock 1.1.1 iPhones and can also “unbrick” the unlocked iPhones that were bricked after users installed Apple’s most recent update.
