iOs 6 jailbreak untethered

And here it is. The iOs 6 jailbreak untethered will be released in some days. The news team evad3rs (@evad3rs), with pod2g, MuscleNerd, Planetbeing and Pimskek worked on the jailbreak an they’ll release a tool to jailbreak a lot of iDevice soon.

If you update to iOs 6.1, you should do it with iTunes and not with OTA (Over The Air), it’s because of the SHSH.

We have to wait a bit until it’s released 🙂 .

Planetbeing made a lot of progress

Planetbeing posted a tweet on his account today that says he has made a lot of progress these last days. We know that the jailbreak is ina good way and we mustn’t wait too long to have this when iOs 6.1 will be released.

He said that the future of the jailbreak is looking bright. What does that mean? That he has some good vulnerabilities that he doesn’t use in this jailbreak? That he has almost the public jailbreak? We must wait and we will see what will happen.

You can follow @Planetbeing on Twitter for all the news 🙂 .

Pod2g posted today on his Twitter account a message for Planetbeing. He said that he thinks he has some good news for him.

What should we think about it? That can only be a good news, maybe a new vulnerability, a part (or full) of the initial execution code or anything other that can be good for the jailbreak. We just need to wait, the public version of iOs 6.1 mustn’t come very late 🙂 .

Planetbeing is working with pod2g on the iOs 6 jailbreak

We know that Planetbeing is working on the iOs 6 untethered jailbreak and he has it, but they are still looking for some others vulnerabilities to make it work fine.

Planetbeing said on his Twitter account today that he worked with pod2g and that they found 2 new vulnerabilities, but they still need the initial code execution to make it public.

We hope that they will find it soon. You can follow them on Twitter to have more informations @planetbeing @pod2g.

Flex, an upcoming tweak

Flex is a tweak which allows you to do your own tweaks. It’s not availible on Cydia for the moment, but it will be soon.

What can you do with flex? You can create your own tweaks “without knowing anything about Objective-c”. This idea is from John Coates, who made MissionBoard pro, and it will allow you to make and share your runtime patches, not just on iOs but also on any apps you have installed.

The developer thinks that it can be for developer and for others users :

You basically search for a keyword that’s related to what you want to change.

Say you want to increase the amount of tabs Safari can have. So you make a new patch, and search for “maximum”. You’ll find two results, one which says “maxiumumTabDocumentCount” You click it, change the return value to 30 and suddenly you can have 30 Safari tabs.

What do you think about this idea?

Original Reddit post :

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on a rather large project. It’s a new jailbreak app called Flex. What it does it let you create small tweaks, share what you create, and download others’ shared tweaks. I expect to release it pretty soon, just need to have it go through a beta phase.

To give you a better idea here’s a screenshot of the patches view. Each of those patches consists of one or more “units”. A unit looks like this, and it’s what does the work.

You can instantly download patches from within the app, and activate them straight away.

Patches are very easy to make, and give you quite a lot of power. You can make them for any application you have installed, even SpringBoard. They don’t contain any real code, the tweak portion of Flex is actually what does all the heavy lifting… so basically these patches can’t be installed outside of Flex.

You can also follow my twitter @punksomething for updates

EDIT:
I got a great response about the beta testing, and I no longer need any more beta testers. Watch for Flex’s release soon, and if you want to get e-mailed about it you can subscribe to TweakTuesday

2G Lab, the company of pod2g

The well known hacker pod2g has created his own company. It’s called 2G Lab and they are working on application development and security research.

Here is the original post :

Hi.
You reader certainly know that I have not been really present in the security field since a few months now.
The reason of this was the creation of my company, 2G Lab, focusing on 2 different areas : development and security research.
Now that our first application, named podDJ is out to the AppStore, we will focus on both subjects.
If you have a project that you would like 2G Lab to work on, contact us: contact at 2g-lab dot com.
Best wishes to you all,
Cyril (@pod2g)
