Hackers Break iPhone, iPod touch Out Of Jail
Its a good old fashion prison break--the iPhone and iPod Touch are freed from the confines of a locked file system.
The release of Apple's firmware v1.1.1 update was supposed to be an exciting event, which heralded the arrival of mobile iTunes and special promotions with Starbucks. It turned out to be chiefly a dragnet by Apple to catch rogue unlocked iPhones and "brick" them.
Of course, despite Apple's best efforts, it was only a matter of time before someone cracked the new firmware's protection -- they did unlock the phone's protection in the first place after all.
One of the most dreaded parts of Apple's update was the fact that it locked iPhones and iPod touches from using any third party applications by locking the file system. Some saw this as a death knell for the burgeoning iPhone homebrew community.
