Even better news. It will be friendlier then any other handheld device hack. Simply point safari at a URL and let it work its magic!!

This will be the long convulted method of jailbreaking, not the 1 touch installer, not practical for any novice or average pc/touch user.Id wait a few days.

Again it uses a tiff exploit which required you to simply open a page in safari with the custom tiff file.

Why does everybody think this would brick it? Worst case scenario: You need to restore. I think people either dont understand the difference between jailbreaking and unlocking, or they just like to say the word brick as a verb.

Type /join #itouch

You can also /leave #dacp which that client seems to drop you into automagically. More important question... which IRC network is #itouch on?

Its not freenode which the java client linked above is default connecting to.

Anyhow, I gotta go to work, if someone does post the server the appropriate command to switch is:
/server <server ip/honstname>

Also, /nick <name> to change your display name.

ToCsIcK

lol, it wont be anywhere near as easy as that, not at this stage.The Tiff merely crashes the browser for an exploit to be run.

The first exploit of this kind simply crashed the browser, that was a proof of concept that the buffer overflow exploid existed on the iPod Touch.

From what i have put together from the lead developers and other people in contact with them. You will navigate to a remote server using safari and the tiff will, through a series of complex events originating from a buffer overflow, umounts the drive and remounts it with read/write access. From here it will change the file that tells the os how to mount drives, the fstab file, to always mount it with the read/write perms. Thus JAILBREAK

Don't quote me on any of this as it is just my perception of what has been said in the IRC channel.

Really glad to hear the jailbreak will be out sometime today. I really want to give it a go on my new iPod touch to see what can be added to it and how much more useful it can be. Hopefully there will at some point be a way to keep them out of jail through the Apple updates, but who knows if that's possible or how long it could take.

RyanG

It's rather easy for them to fix, given that the way they hacked it is released all over the Internet. Honestly, the news articles and such ruin it. They basically give the exploit to Apple and they just fix it right up.

I can't wait to put the Books.app on my touch, that is the main reason I wanted a jail break, I can listen to music and read books on my touch! Also notes will be kind of nice.

Can anyone post here when apps have been ported to the ipod touch, so far only a jailbreak has been confirmed, no apps yet. I don't have access to IRC at work.

I am happy about the jailbreak not becuase I want to use 3rd party apps but becuase it will hopefully force apple to inticing people with the missing features (mail, adding calandar events, VPN ,etc) so that they will update to a versoin that will block the jailbreak as well.

Am I just hoping? I really just want my IPT to get those three things:(

You sound like an addict "just one more - last one - I promise!" lol.

I'm obsessed with my Touch. It is everything I thought it would be, and more, but as I said in a different thread, we have nothing to lose. Either apple gives up trying to stop the hacks, or they keep enticing us with sugar so we swallow their hack-proof medicine.

Wait - I hope apple doesn't create a nice little iPhone/Touch virus using the TIFF exploit, then come back to the community and say "see what you guys did? we warned you about this!" ....but apple isn't evil, right?

Although, truthfully, as other people who are far more programmer-savvy than myself have already said, the TIFF exploit is a dangerous creature and it could be used by evil people to mess up the Phone/Touch.

Just a thought

It's only illegal in the US where you don't get to own the devices you paid for. DMCA is the most assinine POS ever developed. Like with a xbox - I can see perfectly well why they would be banned from xbox live with a modded console, and I want them banned, but illegal to putter about being creative with things like the XBMC? Give me a break. What's next, unscrew a few screws on your toaster and the cops bust down your door?

I'd like to see some documentation stating that it's illegal... I seriously don't believe that. I could easily see it voiding the warranty (well, if you show up to an Apple store with a bunch of stuff on it, at least, but if you wipe it, I doubt they'd know you did anything since it's all software).

toc2rta.com just released the jailbreak for the iphone 1.1.1 and ipod touch.


Don't use the exploit unless you know what you're doing! This will cause you not to be able to sync from iTunes.

You will need to use IPHUC to access the filesystem. This is for experienced users only.

Please note: After navigating to the exploit site, your safari WILL CRASH and you will be returned to the home screen.
This is the EXPECTED RESULT, it means that the exploit executed!

WAIT FOR A TUTORIAL to be released, if you don't know what you're doing.


---toc2rta.com



To activate the jailbreak, nativate to the following link on your iphone/ipod touch:

http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com

Please post results below, especially any success at adding new applications, but as is quoted above, wait if you don't know what you are doing...

I think it's better to have a new thread, given the exploit is now officially released.

If you happen to go to the URL and are stuck, I believe you should be able to do a restore from iTunes, and it will bring your Touch back to normal.

I'm not extremely well versed in the workings of this hack and am just wondering if there are any changes made to the file system, the firmware or indeed any form of data on the iPod touch or iPhone that won't be returned to normal by restoring them via iTunes? If there are no permanent changes made, surely it makes the nature of the hack seem less terminal, because if the device can be returned to normal prior an update from Apple, there's no risk of a bricked iPod touch or iPhone?

madmaxmedia
Oct 10, 2007, 03:38 PM
Here's a choice quote from 1 poster on the IRC Channel-

EVEN AFTER COMPLETE RESTORE STILL NOT BEEING RECOGNIZED BY ITUNES !

AND STILL NO NOTHING WORKING

So yeah, wait for other people to sort things out and make sure it's reasonably safe.

Someone else did say they did a restore, and all was back to normal. It's pretty much mass confusion at this point.

EDIT- I guess a guide/wiki is being worked on.

It is as simple as if you don't know what you are doing don't try it. You can brick a $400 iPod by being ignorant. Of course to hacking I am ignorant, so I am waiting for a step by step (friday at the latest with this hype) so I don't destroy a brand new, expensive, iPod.

I think you're supposed to hold the home and power button down until something comes on your screen.

But Rapmastac says that doesn't work. Give it a try. Maybe with the iPod docked, then without.

IRC is a chat system, people are trying to figure out the jailbreak there. It might take some time for it to all sort out, but don't worry, you should be able to get your iPod back-

Here are the steps, but... these are for the iPhone.

To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:

Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears.


Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you havenít.
Run and open iTunes if itís not already opened yet.
iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless itís hardware related.

There has to be some restore mode for the Touch, lets get to work and find it!

It might be safer to wait a day or 2, although at this point it seems like if anything goes wrong you can restore your Touch to original state.

It would be nice if we knew for sure how to enter recovery mode and then reload old OS on the Touch.

That has a general description of the TIF exploit and what happens after you load it, then tells you to go to jailbreak.toc2rta.com to load the TIF.

Then you follow the other instructions I posted the link to.

When I go to the jailbreak.toc2.rta.com it goes home and does nothing what do I do now?

I don't know exactly what happens. I know you're not supposed to get a big song and dance, Safari is supposed to crash and that's basically it.

I would just try the other instructions, and see if it works.

i tried but when I type sudo cp ~/Desktop/opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib /opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib it asks for a password?

Not sure. It says to do that command, or put the 'opt' folder (out of the unzipped directory on your desktop) directly in your HD. Maybe try that instead.

EDIT- Are you logged in as admin on your Mac? Maybe try entering a password to an admin account on your Mac?

Yeah, I think that should do it-

I'm sorry in advance for misusing terms, I understand the concept but I don't know the correct use of some of these terms. :)

Once the Jailbreak is introduced, subsequently followed by Apple's update (probably with something "nifty"-- a fix to a bug they placed on purpose, perhaps), is it really is easy as using the Restore option on iTunes to bring your iPod Touch back to normal? I don't want to use this hack to find that I can't undo it. I know that bricking them isn't like everyone is saying, but would it really be as easy to remove the Jailbreak as this?

Previous Jailbreaks could be undone by restoring, because that overwrites the entire OS (including everything you did to jailbreak.)

But...you may want to wait until more detailed guides are available, including information on restoring. Just to be on the safe side...

When you enter your password, no letters will show onscreen for security purposes. Just type your complete password and hit enter.

In UNIX, passwords aren't echoed back. It's inputting, you just can't see it.

Check the top level your HD, is the 'opt' folder there?

EDIT- Did you unzip that rapidshare file onto your desktop? If so, you should have a folder on your desktop called 'opt', if you go into the folder you should find:

Desktop/opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib

You might want to restore your iPod to original condition so you can use it normally, then wait for a PPC compatible protocol.

I don't know for certain about PPC/Intel, but when I do a 'get info' on the iphuc file it says 'Intel' in the info.

iPhuc is NOT working on PPC Macs, so you can't jailbreak the IPT without a MacIntel...

I'm thinking of trying this process guys, any reasons anyone has come up with not to? Don't really have much knowledge in command line, and I only moved to the mac platform about a month and a half ago. Do you think i've got a fair chance of getting it to work, or should I just wait?
