Why I wasn’t active and a new proposition

Hello to all the people who will read this article.

As you can see, I haven’t been much active these last months. I had a lot of work and others stuffs to do. Now I have a bit more time but I still can’t post daily articles.

I just make a proposition to anyone who could be interessted in it. You can choose a subject, about informatic in general, and I’ll try to post an article about it. I think I can make one article every week, so I ask one theme per week.

If you’re interessted, you can contact me on Twitter (@DevSk0re) or by email : sk0re.dev@gmail.com

I hope some of you will propose something, that would be great :).

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 🙂 .

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

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 :

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)

Planetbeing continues working on the iOs 6 jailbreak

Planetbeing said on his Twitter account that he continues working on the iOs 6 jailbreak. He fixes some bugs and he also said (few days ago) that he has to find two others vulnerabilities before haveing an iOs 6 untethered jailbreak.

We just have to wait and we’ll see 🙂 .


Planetbeing has the untethered jailbreak!

And what for a good news! The hacker Planetbeing said he has his iPhone 5 running on iOs 6.0.2 with an untethered jailbreak. He said that MobileSubstrate is perfectly working on it, which is a good thing because it’s for the stability of the jailbreak.

He explained that this jailbreak wouldn’t be public right now, because if they do so, Apple would break the vulnerabilities. He also said that some vulnerabilities could be broken in iOs 6.1, but he used 4 vulnerabilities and has two more vulnerabilities.

We just have to wait until the iOs 6.1 is released for everybody and that they make the jailbreak work.

Pod2g : “The jailbreak is being developed”

Pod2g tweeted something few hours ago to say that the jailbreak is being developed, but in “underground”. He said that he saw some bad comments about his hashtag (#WeWantAnOpeniOs) because some people though that the hackers couldn’t jailbreak the iOs 6 and that they wanted pitty from Apple.

He said that all these things weren’t true and that the jailbreak is being developed, but in underground and it’s not ready for a public release. He also said he wasn’t speaking as a jailbreaker, because he isn’t involved in iOs 6 jailbreak, but we can understand that the jailbreak isn’t finished and that he doesn’t want pitty for him from Apple because he isn’t working on iOs 6 jailbreak.

And his last word is “It is not the end„. It means the jailbreak is in a good way, so wait and the jailbreak will come. The iOs 5 was already hard to jailbreak, remember last year, so this year it’s normal to wait this long.
