Pod2g: Apple Should Open Up iOS With Alternate Firmware That Runs Unsigned Apps

Posted by · 12816 views · Translate
Popular hacker pod2g has posted his idea for making iOS a more open operating system. Rather then changing anything with the current firmware, he suggests that Apple release an alternate version that allows unsigned apps to run. This version would need to be manually installed by advanced users and developers.

Hi. An idea for Apple to open iOS more, kill jb and related vuln. research: release an alternate firmware version not requiring signed code. Advanced / power users would have to download this special version and install it with their own risks.

Best of both worlds. People that want to do adv things with their iPhone would use the special fw version, others would stay with the orig. And yes, the best argument is: they already allow unsigned apps on OS X. iOS is no different. AppStore exist on both.


What do you think? Would this be a good compromise from Apple? Would it replace your jailbreak?
