Geohot releases a DFU Tool

Posted July 21, 2008 at 10:31am by iClarified · 24691 views
For those of you who remember, last week Geohot had made a website- YiPhone.org. It was a timer set to reach 0 on Tuesday 12 PM. He lead us to believe that he would release the Jailbreaking tool if the Dev-Team did not release it. However, this was not the case. It was more of a "test/scare" than anything else. Today, Geohot released a tool that allows you to run "whatever you want" at the DFU level- very simliar to what Pwnage 2.0.1 does.

Here is a little program(with source of course) to run whatever you want at the DFU level; an implementation of the dev pwnage 2.0 exploit. Pass it a binary file, it will start executing at the start of the file(no file formats to deal with). I'll leave it to dev to explain the exploit used.

You can grab that program here if you wish to do testing on your own. Be careful, as not a lot of support is available for this and you may have a hard time getting in touch with Geo for support :)

;-) The joke was funny for the Yorro joke and photoshop act... It's just that making a small war out of who's going to release a hack first is a bit childish in my opinion. Hopefully another reader won't be right about a certain bit manipulator claiming it was HIS idea first. I wish I knew more about this wonderful machine that Apple made, to help out or simply make my own hacks. So, this DFU tool, it's like session emulator to talk to the S5L? If George could only give us the commands it understands... that should get me started.
