    Beta Beat: iPhone/iPod touch Jailbreak Beta test announced

    Over at Toc2rta, iPhone hacker Niacin has announced a betatest for his iPhone/iPod touch jailbreak effort. To join, you must point your irc client to irc.toc2rta.com and connect to #betatest. 1.1.1 testers only and you will need some working version of iPhuc.

    I'm not personally familiar with the current state of his hack so Caveat Hacktor and all that. Good luck, and bring us back a jailbreak.


    anyone tried yet?

    You would have to be nuts to want to install this IMHO. Using the tiff exploit means that this will be a very short lived experience.

    Yeah, you gotta be nutz... to leave a really old tiff exploit laying around...

    This is what was done for the psp jailbreak awhile ago.

    Seriously though, I'll wait till tomorrow or untill AppTapp or NES whichever comes first, not long now :)

    Now if only we can prevent sim-unlocking and maybe we could keep Apple happy long enough not to break it, naaah, that'll never happen.

    Maybe if they encrypted the modem firmware but left the rest of the phone open everyone could be happy.. it would be decrypted eventually, though..

    I meant a full tested AppTapp available for simple download like the last few ones

    Not if you dont update anymore, seriously 1.1.1 with apptapp would make me splooge

    Re: comments by DrunkDwarf. He maintains this is essentially a virus.

    Y'know as much as I know he's trolling there the point he makes is very real.

    Apple sure better have a way out of this PR nightmare because it's going to get a lot worse for them over the next month or so. ie. I hope the theory that Apple will open this up with an SDK when Leopard comes out is true.
