iPhone 1.1.1 prepped for 1.1.2 jailbreak
Apple's latest effort to thwart iPhone and iPod touch hacking futile
When Apple announced the release of the iPhone for the UK, it also announced that iPhone and iPod touch firmware version 1.1.2 would be released at the same time. Released today, firmware 1.1.2 closes the TIFF vulnerability in mobile Safari that was used to jailbreak firmware 1.1.1.
, the TIFF vulnerability no longer works. However, despite Apple's effort to lockdown the iPhone and iPod touch, firmware 1.1.2 has already been jailbroken.
Credit go to the people behind AppSnap, the same utility used to jailbreak 1.1.1 devices. According to
testing of the new jailbreak began several nights ago
, when the new 1.1.2 firmware was made available for download not through iTunes, but through Apple's website.
In its current stage, the new jailbreak requires several steps in order to complete, and is by no means release ready and user friendly. AppSnap and
still remains open for 1.1.1 only, but the new jailbreak is being prepared for the same single tap installation.
's report, firmware 1.1.1 is required in order for the jailbreak to work with 1.1.2, although it is unclear at this point whether or not this will still be a requirement once AppSnap is officially updated.
Those with hacked 1.1.1 devices may wish to hold off from upgrading to 1.1.2 since it does not appear to provide any significant upgrade. The only noticeable change is the inclusion of several international language packs.
Jailbreaking may become a thing of the past if Apple keeps its promise. Apple announced in early October that
come February 2008, developers will have an official iPhone SDK
. The announcement was well received by the developer community. Currently, third-party applications for the iPhone are done via web applications and are mostly cumbersome to use and slow in nature.

He said, they said, so it must bw true, because DT says so. Just plane crap. If hackers are so good, why haven't they released jailbreak already? Hardly news or relevant unless you want it to be. Apple continues to raise the bar. Just get over it.

Most of it don't have to get over it - we don't have iPhones; but, I can assure you that if we did, we wouldn't make rounds to websites we hate and post comments on their articles in some vain attempt to justify our purchase / loyalty to a company that has proven time and time again it doesn't give a crap about us.
That'd be pathetic...

Guess what, my friend has the 1.1.2 firmware HACKED.
Who is the moron here now huh ?
My friend used to be a big fan of Apple's products, Mac books, computers, ipods, u name it. but over the years, he is getting pissed over the shit quality of Apple(plus overpriced)
With iPhone, it freeze for no reason, piss slow menus. I tried the phone myself I was like wow, u paid 400 bux for this piece of crap ? Hell my OLD w950 can do better than this piece of shit.
DT is not against anything. but the truth is, Apple makes nothing but garbage. You dont like it? Good for you. I aint paying a buck to Apple, I dont even have iPod. Damn my 5 yr old Sony HDD player still freaking works, 25 hours of battery life. Try that with iPod. Thank you come again.
