iPhone Dev Team claims iPhone 2.0 jailbreak, unlock [updated]
Demonstrating their ability to breach Apple’s iPhone software security measures, members of the iPhone Dev Team have announced that they have completed a hack that both jailbreaks and unlocks iPhone firmware 2.0, which is set to be released in June. This firmware, which is apparently distinguished from the demonstration iPhone software included with Apple’s software development kit, includes new parental controls and other never-before-seen iPhone features, in addition to ones demonstrated by Apple during its iPhone Software Roadmap event last week. According to reports, the new procedure directly patches the firmware as opposed to hacking into it via an exploit, which makes it more challenging for Apple to fix. It remains unclear whether the 2.0 software will become available to users prior to its official release, as it has been distributed only to select iPhone developers and enterprise partners.
Update: Video of an iPhone running the hacked 2.0 firmware has been posted online.
