Pod2g Begins Work on Hacking iPhone 4S Baseband

Posted by · 20854 views · Translate

Pod2g has begun work on hacking the iPhone 4S baseband, according to tweets from the renowned hacker. Previously, pod2g had concentrated on jailbreak exploits.

As some have found, I am playing with the baseband. Already found a non exploitable DoS. I hope I can find more stuff.

His effort to hack the baseband is being performed from the network side (as opposed to the from within the iPhone) with help from a USRP N210 software radio.

Unfortunately, even if he is successful, any exploit found would need to be triggerable from the main app CPU side to be used in a software unlock.

The TippingPoint DVLabs Pwn2Own competition in September is offering $100,000 for a baseband exploit and pod2g may have his eyes set on that prize.

Isnt pod2g against unlocking? Or what other purpose does baseband hacking serve?

Isn't it a little late to be doing this now? Would've been nice if this started last year. Jus sayin'

Its never too late considering the latest software unlock for the iPhone 3G was only recently released and that phone was retired a couple years ago. Eg 6.15 to 5.13 baseband downgrade.
