I was so caught up in writing about the progress on hacking the iPhone activation process that I missed this juicy little update based on work with the cracked system image:
Custom applications: Still unknown. It was thought that the iPhone might only run signed code, but it seems that this is not the case.
It seems like there might be a hack to enable 3rd party applications rather soon. Also, this might signal that Apple’s future plans for officially supported third party apps was rather liberal, or it could just mean that they didn’t have time to create a subsystem for trusted applications since there were so many other things that had ot happen before lunch
