P0sixninja Releases New iPhone Jailbreak Utilities

Posted June 6, 2010 at 1:28pm by iClarified
P0sixninja from the Chronic Dev Team has announced the release of four new jailbreak utilities and begun publishing the source for greenpois0n.

: A new tool capable of restoring IPSWs to devices without the help of iTunes. Also capable of doing other neat stuff such as upgrading stock firmware without flashing nor (to preserve jailbreaks) or baseband (to preserve unlocks).

ideviceactivate: A new utility to designed to activate devices without the help of iTunes. Hopefully soon this will even allow users to activate unlocked devices, or devices without an official AT&T SIM.

spirit-linux: An open source version of the Spirit jailbreak for the Linux platform (and possibly soon others).

libirecovery: A library to help developers communicating with iBoot, iBSS, iBEC and DFU, as well as a brand new, completely rewritten, and MUCH improved irecovery.

We've begun publishing the source for some of our greenpois0n components to help new developers start learning and building their very own jailbreak programs. Each one of these components is named after a different poison and all are available under the GNU Public License on our Chronic-Dev Github Repositories.

GreenPois0n Cyanide: Is a cross-platform iBoot payload toolkit to help developers discover new vulnerabilities and design super fast, low-level iBoot jailbreaks and exploit payloads, much like the way blackra1n/purplera1n works.

GreenPois0n Anthrax: Is a cross-platform iPhone ramdisk toolkit to help developers design extremely stable and portable ramdisk jailbreaks, much like the same way quickpwn/redsn0w works.

GreenPois0n Dioxin: Is cross-platform MobileDevice toolkit designed to help developers design awesome userlevel jailbreaks, much the same way spirit jailbreak works.

GreenPois0n Arsenic: new, cross-platform custom firmware toolkit to help developers design jailbreaks to help preserve baseband and keep unlocks, much in the same way PwnageTool/Sn0wBreeze works.

P0sixninja also discusses the possible sources for a new unlock, including the one discovered by Sherif Hashim, a new untethered iBoot vulnerability which was discovered by both geohot and Chronic-Dev Team, and a brand new bootrom code execution vulnerability discovered by himself personally (and probably geohot too).

If you would like to contribute you can donation to p0sixninja's new iPhone4g donations fund. Even just donations of old or broken devices is important.

I dont see anything here for a consumer, sounds like a bunch of hacker development tools. I prefer to wait for an unlock that is ready and working, then donate. I dont think donating for something that has not yet been released makes any sense. That is why I wait for geohot or devteam to release an unlock for FW 3.1.3 or higher greenpoison continues to be vaporware. No greenpoison unlock has EVER been released, though donations have been requested for it, in advance, for a long time.

No unlock......?????? I do not want to sound ungrateful but, still I have an Ipod 3GS because before this I used spirit, sooooo, no big deal to me....

"idevicerestore" FTW!!!! that has to be one of the greatest inventions for an apple device (ipod touch, iphone) lol
toufic - June 6, 2010 at 2:22pm
how does it work???? plz help me
Antonio - June 6, 2010 at 2:57pm
It will let you restore IPSW's without the need of iTunes, which means that now we can restore without having to worrying about updating our baseband (thus losing our unlock) & we don't have to worry about apple signing off on old firmware.... I think I'm right lol
toufic - June 6, 2010 at 3:21pm
it is for windows or Mac
Antonio - June 6, 2010 at 4:02pm
I think it's for both but I'm not sure.

I think that its a C source code, have anyone tried to run it?
MuscleNerd - June 6, 2010 at 9:07pm
That's not what it means (that would be great though!) Remember, the iPhone is in charge of the restore, and iTunes just services the requests made by the device. iTunes doesn't have a say in what the iPhone requests or verifies, and nether can any PC-side client. No PC-side client is able to bypass the iPhone's integrity checks of the files sent over during a restore. This isn't a new form of a jailbreak.

Antonio - June 7, 2010 at 12:30am

Vakas - June 7, 2010 at 5:58am

Vakas - June 7, 2010 at 8:53am
