Pod2G Finds Another Exploit to Jailbreak iPod Touch 2G

Pod2G has found another exploit for the iPod touch 2G that may be used to provide a jailbreak for both MC and non-MC models.

A heap overflow exists in the iPod touch 2G (both old and new) bootrom's DFU Mode when sending a USB control message of request type 0xA1, request 0x1.

On newer devices, the same USB message triggers a double free() when the image upload is marked as finished, also rebooting the device (but that's not exploitable because the double free() happens in a row). posixninja analyzed and explained this one.

This exploit is different from the one being used for the SHAtter jailbreak.

Why is he publishing details of this? Surely Apple will just fix it so it won't be of any use in future iOS releases?

I just wanted to ask whether there is a difference between the iPod Touch 2G and 3G when it comes to jailbreaking. Also maybe how to tell the difference between the two models. I believe I have a 3G but then again, I'm not certain haha. Please help.

Pleasedon't use the term "homie"; it makes you sound like an utter twat.

Fuck you. Even if you were "correct" in your opinion, wouldn't it be great if it were that easy to pick out a twat? ..pick out a twat... errrmmm..... but yea. Fuck you. Piece of shit. - September 21, 2010 at 12:50pm
