iOS 4.3.3 Untethered Jailbreak Using Greenpois0n, iPad 2 Jailbreak Latest Updates

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Download, Featured, How To, iPad, iPhone, Jailbreak, News

Chronic Dev Team has issued an update regarding 4.3.3 Jailbreak status. The upcoming Greenpois0n RC6.2 will be capable of jailbreaking iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone iPad and iPod Touch. iPad 2 jailbreak status is not quite clear as they are no details and no ETA yet. Joshua Hill aka posixninja is currently working on it:

As I’m sure many people have heard, Josh (posixninja) has recently been quoted saying the iPad 2 jailbreak is coming in “weeks”, I know I have been very publicly abrasive and non-commital on giving any kind of timeframe or comment on this matter, but at the behest of Josh (in conjunction with his need for a swift kick to the ass for motivation) we’re ALL going to hold him to that!!! I’m not going to get into extensive detail about this, but what I will say one of the missing puzzle pieces may have reared its head and cast a glance in our direction… take from that what you will.

Greenpois0n RC 6.2 is coming soon to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 untethered for iPhone, iPad  and iPod Touch.

In the past I have also said that 4.3.x support was on hold for greenpois0n to focus on iPad 2 jailbreak exclusively, our course has slightly changed (primary focus has never shifted from iPad 2 since it was released) it has now become possible to easily update and execute a workflow to enable RC6.2 (tentatively speaking… mmm #dirt) to be released “soon”…

Greenpois0n RC 6.2 will be a simpler one to use comparatively. Still you can jailbreak iOS 4.3.x with the already present tools which you can find below.

Glasses Free 3D App For iPhone 4 & iPad 2 Free Download

Do you remember the Glasses Free 3D on iPad 2 and iPhone 4 via Head Tracking Demo? If you don’t, no worries the video is embedded below, but in short, a research team came up an amazing tech demoes by combining head-tracking technology that uses the iPad’s front facing camera to deliver glasses-free 3D experience that doesn’t require the accelerometer, but it’s entirely based on the camera and the movements of a user’s head in front of the screen. The position of the user will give the illusion of tridimensional objects moving on the display. Now that team has released the free i3D app, so you can see the 3D illusion effect yourself.

Apps official description:

i3D is an overview of Head-Coupled Perspective (HCP) on iOS devices. HCP uses the front camera of the device to track the face of the user in real time. This information tells the app how the user is looking at the display. The app updates the perspective of the 3D scene accordingly, giving the user the illusion that he looks at a small window.

i3D contains several 3D scenes that you can observe with HCP. It only relies on face tracking. It does not use the accelerometers or the gyroscopes.

The face tracking system does not detect and track the face in every lighting condition. Read the instructions in the app to get a good tracking.

Head-Coupled Perspective does not create a stereoscopic display! It provides a kind of monocular 3D display: the same picture is seen by both eyes. In the future, it might be combined with a stereoscopic display for a better 3D effect.

i3D has been developed by Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay at the Engineering Human-Computer Interaction (EHCI) Research Group of the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (LIG), University Joseph Fourier (UJF).

iPad 2 Jailbreak By GeoHot is Coming

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, iPad, Jailbreak, News, Rants & Raves, Twitter

Geohot may be interested in coming back to Jailbreak world as hinted by Chronic Dev Team key member Joshua Hill, and this time to make iPad 2 jailbreak which is the only device left with no solution yet.

@p0sixninja has tweeted:
I challenged geohot to dump the iPad2 bootrom before me. Maybe having a worthy opponent will motivate me to work harder =P
@p0sixninja confirmed that GeoHot has accepted his challenge:
he accepted, he said he didn’t have an iPad yet but he’s getting one really soon

This is a good news after Geohot busy days he spent fighting against the lawsuit by Sony for hacking into Playstation 3 firmware and both parties settled down finally, however. Hope we get a  bootrom level exploit instead of userland jailbreak this time.

We are waiting impatiently as no ETA provided yet.

It seems like iPad 2 jailbreak is almost ready or at least in its final stages of development. iPad 2 is the only device that left not jailbroken yet. @Veeence is confirming that the iPad 2 jailbreak is almost ready. This is what he has tweeted:

Apparently an A5 (iPad2) jailbreak is almost developed. There’s no release plan tho. What you get when security researchers investigate…
