Its now been a number of years since iPhone Dev Team unleashed this amazing tool and to say how important the role of ultrasn0w has been to many iPhone users would be an understatement. Anyone who relies on their carrier / network to be unlocked in order to use their iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 on another GSM carrier, now has the opportunity to take the iOS 4.3.1 upgrade while remaining unlocked thanks to ultrasn0w 1.2.1.
Despite this not being a video showing the iPhone 3G running Honeycomb (which would have been much more impressive). The hack below does allow you to dual boot either iOS or Android 2.3 Gingerbread all thanks to the OpeniBoot software, so it should also work on an iPhone 2G or a first generation iPod touch (up to iOS 4.1). The video is a bit jerky, but it’s proof that Gingerbread can be dual-booted.
Looks like there’s been a glitch in Apple’s iOS 4.1 firmware, the relatively important security flaw too. The glitch allows users to hack their way through and bypass the lock screen on the iPhone in which you are required to enter a passcode, the result is that you won’t need to know the passcode to reach the iPhone phone app and access some degree of private data.
Its been awhile since we last spoke of anything iPhone jailbreak related from the iPhone Dev Team but this latest news is worth mentioning. The iPhone Dev Team member Musclenerd has provided a screenshot teaser of what the next upcoming Pwnage Tool will do for the iDevice community.
