QuickPwn to Jailbreak your iPhone from Windows

“Poorlad” cranked out a windows GUI for the QuickPwn tool, which allows you to jailbreak iPhone’s running the 2.0.2 firmware so you can run 3rd party applicaitons.

The release is just an interim solution for windows users.  Sometime soon, there will be a better supported QuickPwn GUI that uses the same codebase as the mac version.

mobileterminal at Google Code: the first real iPhone GUI app

It is ironic, but not suprising, that the first real 3rd party GUI application for the iPhone is a command line terminal program. It was posted just this afternoon to Google code.

This is the home of MobileTerminal.app, a terminal emulator application for the iPhone. MobileTerminal.app is NOT an SSH client, nor Telnet for that matter. It can however be used to execute a console ssh-client application.

I think it’s time I move beyond following progress on hacking the iPhone, and actually install some of the hacks this weekend.

For those who are intersted, here is an audio-free demo video:

First 3rd party GUI App for iPhone, More Apps Coming Soon

A new page on the iPhone Dev Wiki has basic source code for creating a native GUI application for the iPhone. It’s just a proof of concept, but it is huge news, and comes less than a week after people were able to run the first 3rd party app on an iPhone.

“Here’s the source to a UIKit Hello World. The iphone-binutils project has a set of header files for the UIKit in the include/ directory on the Subversion repository. If you compile this, place it in a bundle with the appropriate files, and add the appropriate entry to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/DisplayOrder.plist, it’ll show up on the main menu.” from http:// iphone.fiveforty.net / wiki / index.php / UIKit_Hello_World

The first iPhone apps could only be accessed via a remote terminal connection. This latest news is a big step towards being able to create apps that look and act like the native apps like the notepad, calendar, maps, etc.
