Here’s How You Can Help The Jailbreak Community?

How can I help the jailbreak community? Some of you may have asked this question before.

pod2G - a member of the jailbreak dream team and credited fordiscovering vulnerabilities that were used in the Absinthe andCorona jailbreak has just answered that question.

                                                       greenpois0n absinthe

He writes on his blog:

To jailbreak a device, hackers need a set of exploitable vulnerabilities :

  • a code injection vector : a vulnerability in the core components of iOS that leads to custom, unsigned code execution.
  • a privilege escalation vulnerability : it’s usualy not enough to have unsigned code execution. Nearly all iOS applications and services are sandboxed, so one often need to escape from the jail to trigger the kernel exploit.
  • a kernel vulnerability : the kernel is the real target of the jailbreak payload. The jailbreak has to patch it to remove the signed code enforcement. Only the kernel can patch the kernel, that’s why a code execution vulnerability in the context of the kernel is needed.
  • an untethering vulnerability : when the device boots, it is unpatched, thus cannot run unsigned code. Thus, to start the jailbreak payload at boot time, a code execution vector either in the services bootstrap or in the loading of binaries is mandatory.
You can help if you can crash either a core application (Safari, Mail, etc…) or the kernel in a repeatable way. A kernel crash is easy to recognize : it reboots the device.

However, he also highlights the important points before reporting a vulnerability:
  • Always test on the latest iOS version before reporting a crash (at the time of writing, iOS 5.1)
  • Be sure to not report crashes to Apple : on your iOS device, go to Settings / General / About / Diagnostics & Usage,  and verify that “Don’t Send” is checked.
  • Not all crashes are interesting : aborts, timeouts or out-of-memory kind of crashes are useless. Verify the crash dump in Settings / General / About / Diagnostics & Usage / Diagnostic & Usage Data that the crash report you created is of Exception Type SIGILL, SIGBUS or SIGSEGV.
  • The crash should be repeatable, which means you should know what exact steps produced it and how to reproduce it on another device.
In case all the boxes are ticked then here’s how and where to send the report:
Send an email to ios.pod2g ‘at’ gmail ‘dot’ com detailing the steps to produce the crash and the associated crash report.

pod2G had earlier tweeted that he was working hard to find vulnerabilities in iOS 5.1. So this help could go a long way in helping pod2G and the jailbreak community to release anuntethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.

Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S / iPad 2: Pod2g is Acting on… !!

Absinthe Greenpois0n Jailbreak: you can jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 on 5.1 using this tool, but be care to keep your hands away from the update button because we think that unsuccessful guys falling in this trap.



Apple,  as you know, released 5.1 to fix some issues founded in iOS 5.0.1 and bringing new features such as Siri in Japanese the ability to delete individual images fromPhoto Stream and incredibly redesigned camera access on lock screen.

iOS 5.1 new features have stimulated some iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to hit the silly update button which caused the lose of the unique 5.0.1 Absinthe untethered jailbreak for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which took a long time to see the light.
The exploit that was used by Pod2g (the discoverer of the exploit used in 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak with Absinthe) in iOS 5.1 update for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2, {this exploit } has been closed by Apple . It is not easy because of impracticality of thedowngrading of iPhone 4S / iPad 2 from 5.1 to 5.0.1 even if you have saved SHSH blobs for 5.0.1.
On having an iPhone4S, the basic rule above is really the only rule:  you cannot restore back to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed, no matter what (even if you saved your SHSH blobs).
On having an iPad2 with saved 4.x hashes, you can in fact downgrade to that 4.x but you won’t be able to get to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed (even if you saved your 5.0.1 SHSH blobs).
Currently, there is no jailbreak available for iOS 5.1 with Absinthe Greenpois0n jailbreak, as Apple has closed all the possible ways. So if you still running iOS 5.0.1on your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 and wanna keep your jailbreak, you MUST stay away from iOS 5.1.
Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S / iPad 2 with Absinthe Greenpois0n – Still there is a hope:

On the Twitter, Pod2g has just replied on of his fans verifying that he is working keenly on finding vulnerabilities on 5.1.
It is a must to know that digging for exploit in devices such as iPad 2 and iPhone 4S (A5-devices) is not the sort of thing that can be developed overnight. We hope thatPod2g will be a lucky guy in finding iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S /iPad 2 shortly.

Apple Has Fixed Vulnerability Used in Absinthe Jailbreak in iOS 5.1

We have some bad news, but it was expected.

We have just got a confirmation that Apple has indeed fixed the vulnerability in iOS 5.1 that was used in the Absinthe jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.

                                                         greenpois0n absinthe

Apple has given the “2012 iOS Jailbreak Dream Team” credit for discovering the vulnerability in thedocument that provides details about the security issues that have been fixed in iOS 5.1.

Kernel

Available for: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation) and later, iPad, iPad 2

Impact: A malicious program could bypass sandbox restrictions

Description: A logic issue existed in the handling of debug system calls. This may allow a malicious program to gain code execution in other programs with the same user privileges.

CVE-ID

CVE-2012-0643 : 2012 iOS Jailbreak Dream Team

Apple has also credited pod2G for the HFS vulnerability, we’re not sure if this was the one used in the Corona jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4g, iPod touch 3G and iPad 1.

HFS

Available for: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation) and later, iPad, iPad 2

Impact: Mounting a maliciously crafted disk image may lead to a device shutdown or arbitrary code execution

Description: An integer underflow existed with the handling of HFS catalog files.

CVE-ID

CVE-2012-0642 : pod2g

pod2G had almost confirmed this earlier today when he tweeted that he was working hard to find a vulnerability in iOS 5.1 for an untethered jailbreak.

It remains to be seen how long it will take the brilliant jailbreak dream team to release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.

If you’re still on iOS 5.0.1 or ealier then it is recommended to avoid updating to iOS 5.1 until the jailbreak tools for iOS 5.1 are released.

iPad 2 And iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Is Just A Matter Of Days Away

We don’t want to annoy our readers with more and more news about the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak but we’ve to keep you informed with the latest updates on the release. Yesterday, we informed you that the iPhone hacker planetbeing came out out of his Twitter exile to inform jailbreakers that the team escaped from the sandbox with the help of Cydia’s creator Jay Freeman, better known as Saurik.
 

The A5 jailbreak thing is currently kind of a big deal. The cat and mouse game between Apple and iPhone hackers is turning into more of a war than a game. Almost all legendary hackers are now working together to get the A5 untethered jailbreak to the public. However, it seems very difficult and tiring for them.

Over the last few days, the jailbreaking dream team did good progress on the iPhone 4S andiPad 2 untethered jailbreak. Today, pod2g announced an interesting piece of news.

In a new blog post, pod2g says that the A5 untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 is just a “matter of days”:

Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research. @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak. Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course. We all want this to be finished ASAP, we’re getting tired!

We’re so excited about this big release. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter as the A5 jailbreak could be released any day now.

Redsn0w 0.9.10 b1 / Jailbreak 5.0.1 Untethered / iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G, iPad [Tutroial] [Download] [Video] 

Redsn0w 0.9.10 b1(has just released) to jailbreak 5.0.1  untethered on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, 3G and iPad 1. Pod2g was the guy behind 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, as he handed over his project to both Chronic Dev-team and iPhone Dev-team. 

The two teams have made a major task on 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. iPhone Dev-team have put 5.0.1 untethered in to RedsnOw 0.9.10 b1 and PwnageTool. Chronic Dev-team put untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak into a Cydia package, thanks Pod2g and the both teams for making us happy.
Before starting to jailbreak 5.0.1untethered on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, 3G and iPad - You have to know this:
Supported devices:
iPhone 4 (GSM - CDMA)
iPhone 3GS
iPod touch 4G
iPod touch 3G
iPad 1

iPhone Dev-team’s advices:
If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now!  The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1  If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW!    Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam.  The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration.  If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup!  You will most likely get into a reboot cycle.  Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.
How to jailbreak 5.0.1 untethered iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G, 3G, iPad 1 - [Tutorial]
Required Downloads:

Pod2g iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Released For iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch

Finally Pod2g has released his iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak to the public. Jailbreak untethers all A4 devices running iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. The iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team has released the required tools for untethered jailbreak when Pod2g gave the codes to both Team.
 
pwned

The iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak works on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GSiPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and the iPad 1.

Pod2g is working now on releasing a jailbreak will work on all A5 devices:

@pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices. Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release. Keep following pod2g on twitter or his blog for any progress reports!

We will back as soon as we can with full guides and videos to show you how to Untethered jailbreak on 5.0.1.
Note: you can do this by Redsn0w or GreenpPois0n tools. Stay tuned,

UPDATE 1: we’ve got our hands one redsn0w and greernpois0n tools. While we’re doing the guides, you can use the alternative method (only for jailbroken devices) by running “Corona 5.0.1 Untether” jailbreak tweak from Cydia. Our guide can be found here.

UPDATE 2: Here’s it. Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 guide is now available on our blog with an interesting video walkthrough. Check the guide and video here.

Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 4 Running iOS 5.0.1 Demoed

iOS hacker - pod2G has just published a new blog post in which he has demoed his untethered jailbreak working on iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1.

He has also mentioned that the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and Apple TV 2 is ready for prime time and working hard to release it in "some more days".

                                                       greenpois0n

He writes on his blog:

Here is a new video demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4.

This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods.

The jailbreak is near ready for prime time (excluding 4S and iPad 2).

Patches are the same as redsn0w’s. Expect the same level of stability.

Some more days to wait. Be patient, we’re doing our best.

Couple of days back, pod2G had mentioned that he was making progress on the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S. However, based on his post, it looks like he plans to first release the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and Apple TV 2 first.

With iOS 5.0.2 and iOS 5.1 release imminent, it remains to be seen if pod2G will release the untethered jailbreak soon or wait for Apple to release the iOS software updates. There is always a risk of waiting for Apple to release an iOS software update as it can always fix the exploit that pod2G is using in the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we have any further updates, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
