About That iPhone 3G S Jailbreak-Proof Being Shipped, Hackers Already Found A Way Around It

Posted Oct 16, 2009

Earlier this week, I wrote that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will be shipping iPhone 3G S devices that will be jailbreak-proof because it will be using a more secure bootrom. Whoa! That took less than a few days. The bootrom that Apple is placing on the iPhone 3G S devices does not prevent the 24kpwn exploit made by Dev Team hackers, it just interferes with it. But here’s the catch.

In order to boot up the jailbroken iPhone 3G S device, you will need to tether it using a computer in order to boot it up as of right now. The same thing happened with the iPod Touch 2G. Initially when the Dev Team created a jailbroken version of the iPod Touch 2G, it also needed to be tethered in order to boot but later on a more secure boot ROM was made.

Apple: 0, Dev Team: 1 (Points will be redistributed in follow-up posts about iPhone 3G S jailbreaking news)
