iPad, 不仅仅是放大版的iPod Touch

20岁生日的时候,老妈送了迄今为止最贵的礼物个我——HP DV1306,这个本子一用就是五年,换过硬盘、升过内存,从Windows到Linux……一直服役到现在。在这五年里我频繁的更新手机、随身播放器、耳塞……唯独没有去折腾笔记本,因为我在等,等我理想中的本子。



09年,Mac OS、Chrome OS、Windows 7……无数的平板电脑YY图充斥着网络,那些以假乱真的图片给了我一个信号——我要的东西就快了。

16G WiFi iPad 开箱

还记得 iPad 发布的那个凌晨,本以为 Jobs 会拿出一个惊世骇俗的产品,结果等来了“放大版的 iPod Touch”!然而随着时间的推移,iPad 各种详细的报道出来后,我知道了,这玩意虽然外形上不算惊世骇俗,但绝对能改变我们的生活。于是毫不犹豫的定了一台,在这还是要感谢大头,帮我人肉从米国背回来了。

iPod Touch 2G Jailbreak

iPod Touch 2G: Hi, welcome to the jailbreak family

The iPod Touch 2G is now another member of the “pwned for life” family. It has a fatal flaw in its bootrom that means you will always be able to pwn these devices no matter what firmware updates come along. This is the full, untethered jailbreak, something that iPod Touch 2G users have not had before today.

Those of you who hang out on IRC or were able to read between the lines in the various blogs, forums, wikis and twitters may realize that we — and importantly, that’s a that’s a collective, cross-team “we” :) — had been hoping to hold onto this full ipt2g jailbreak until the next version of the iPhone came out. That didn’t happen, but maybe it’s too late for Apple to fix the bootrom in the next iPhone.

The raw patch to the firmware that transforms the “tethered” jailbreak into an untethered one was released here but it’s not yet packaged up into the PwnageTool or QuickPwn flows. But other threads there are pulling together tutorials and other tips for those of you anxious to try this out now.  For the curious, the hole itself is explained here.    There’s also a “pen and paper” analysis that helped the hybrid team venture transform the hole into an exploit.  Hopefully that will be up for viewing soon too, if only because of its geeky beauty :)

Anyway, to all those iPod Touch 2G users out there who waited so patiently through all the various incarnations of the jailbreak for Apple’s latest device — welcome to the family!

For the rest of us, the jailbreak “cat and mouse” game will continue in the summer with the next iPhone. And the carrier unlock “cat and mouse” game continues as ever. :)
