Rocky Racoon iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Package from Cydia

rocky

Just this morning, the Chronic Dev Team released the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1. For those of you who are already on a tethered 5.1.1 jailbreak, there is also a solution to untether your jailbreak so that you do not have to restore and jailbreak with Absinthe. If you have previously used Redsn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak on your device, simply search for and install the "Rocky Racoon" package in Cydia.

Rocky Racoon is the underlying untethered exploit that will be installed by popular jailbreak tools such as redsn0w and absinthe... if you are using 5.1.1 and you …

absinthe20

This morning at the Hack in the Box conference, the Chronic Dev Team unveiled the much anticipated iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak by way of their new tool, Absinthe 2.0. The new tool can perform on untethered jailbreak on just about any device that supports 5.1.1 except for the Apple TV.

Known as the “iOS Jailbreak Dream Team”, @p0sixninja, @pod2g, @planetbeing, @pimskeks released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 on the final day of the week-long conference. Echoing Steve Jobs’ trademark WWDC encore of ‘… and one more thing’, the team announced the release of Absinthe 2.0 during the closing minutes …

pod2g passes A4 jailbreak off to Chronic Dev Team focuses on A5 jailbreak

pod2g

Just a bit ago, @pod2g updated his blog once again with more progress on the untethered 4S jailbreak. At this time, the A4 jailbreak is pretty much complete so he has passed it off to the rest of the Chronic-Dev team(presumably so they can continue testing and begin packaging the exploit into a user-friendly GUI tool). In doing so, he has also freed up his time to focus solely on the A5 jailbreak now for iPad2 and iPhone4S.

He still has not provided an exact release date but he does keep saying "soon." Honestly, at this point, I'd …

pod2g

Today, @pod2g the famous hacker from the Chronic-Dev team has released a new YouTube video demonstrating his untethered iOS5 jailbreak. The other good news is that he has announced that this jailbreak can quickly be ported to work with 5.0.1 as well, so those who updated, either accidentally or not, are in luck!

There is still no ETA on a release of the iOS5 untethered jailbreak, but it is great to hear from pod2g after such a long silence after his initial announcement that he was working on the jailbreak.…

Soon you will be able to help developers find future jailbreak exploits!

crashreport

An interesting bit of information has begun to make it's rounds on twitter tonight. As the whole jailbreak community patiently awaits the release of an iOS5 untethered jailbreak for all devices, an interesting new tool is coming to fruition that will allow everyday average jailbreakers to help developers find exploits for use in future jailbreaks.

With what little information we have now, it appears as though this will be done by installing an application on your computer that will tie into iTunes and collect data from your device. This data will contain crash reports from your phone that will allow …

jbcon

A few days ago, MyGreatFest, now known as JailbreakCon, the world's first jailbreak convention was held in London. In case you missed it and you were interested in seeing it in it's entirety, a few attendees did a LiveStream that is now available to watch online. There are some great keynote speeches that will tell you all about how jailbreaking got started, where it is now, where it is going and how the devs got into it.

The whole thing is ended with an extensive Q&A session with Jay "saurik" Freeman who answers tons of questions about Cydia, jailbreaking and …

MyGreatFest – The World’s First Jailbreak Convention Starts Tomorrow (Live Coverage)

mygreatfest

The long anticipated convention, MyGreatFest, which will be the world's first jailbreaking convention is set to begin at 9am tomorrow morning. Don't ask me why it's called "MyGreatFest," I'm still trying to figure that out myself Regardless, this event is scheduled to have some high-profile names in the jailbreaking scene. Jay Freeman aka @saurik is scheduled to give a keynote and a QA session as well as Chronic-Dev team members @p0sixninja and @iOPK.

The event is scheduled to take place in an old brewery in London so unfortunately those of us living outside of that area …

Status of iOS5 Untethered Jailbreak

ios5untethered

We are nearing the estimated release date of the iPhone5 and the new iOS5 firmware to go public. Because of this, we have been having a lot of questions regarding an untethered iOS5 jailbreak. Of course there have been tethered jailbreaks available for all iOS5 betas so far and this has caused some people to think that an untethered version will be available as soon as iOS5 is released.

The problem with that theory is that the only reason there have been tethered jailbreaks available for the betas is because it uses the limera1n exploit which is bootrom-level and Apple …

Greenpois0n RC6.2 updates iPad2 jailbreak 4.3.x support and the State of Chronic

thumb

The Chr0nic Dev team is the group of hackers behind the Greenpois0n jailbreak. Many have been wondering what they have been up to since their software still only supports up to version 4.2.1 of the iOS firmware. Earlier today they did a comprehensive update on their blog explaining what they have been working on and what is to come.

Of course, everyone is holding their breath for the upcoming iPad2 jailbreak. @p0sixninja has recently made an announcement that an exploit could be developed in as little as a few weeks. However, we all know that release dates should …

Greenpois0n RC7 Untethered Jailbreak for iPad2 on it’s way

greenpois0nipad2

As you know, @comex had initially been successful at creating an iPad2 jailbreak but it was immediately patched by Apple in 4.3.1 and there was much controversy surrounding the patch as it had been stated that the likelihood of Apple finding the exploit on their own was not high. Because of this, it was suspected that there was a mole working with Apple to relay exploit information. The actual facts are yet to be uncovered.

However, today we received good news from Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team. He posted on Twitter a few …

i0n1c to release untethered 4.3 jailbreak some time this week

4.31

A few days ago we gave you a preview of the new untethered 4.3 jailbreak that is being developed by @i0n1c after that we made an updated post that he would be waiting until 4.3.1 was released to release the jailbreak. Apparently that was a misinterpretation of his words and he will not be waiting for 4.3.1 In fact according to an update we are likely to see the 4.3 untethered jailbreak some time this week.

Because of several changes in iOS 4.3 in comparison to iOS 4.2.1 the jailbreak is NOT READY yet. That is what the *ALPHA* …

Greenpois0n RC6.1 released fixes iBooks issue and AppleTV wi-fi issues

gp_web1

Well, Greenpois0n RC6 was supposed to be the final release, however, in lieu of the recent iBooks anti-jailbreaking security measure and wi-fi issues that were occuring on the AppleTV 2G after using greenpois0n, a new update has been released to address these issues.

Why iBooks failed to open, if jailbroken on iOS 4.2.1 with Greenpois0n?

Apple has allegedly built a jailbreak checker into iOS 4.0 and above to see if someone’s iPhone has been jailbroken. If they found it hacked, then Apple blocks access to the content, like in the latest version of the iBooks app. Whenever a user tries …
