“SHAttered iPod touch 4G” as the Chronic Dev Team likes to call it, is the first actual video of the new SHAtter exploit discovered by @p0sixninja and later developed by @pod2g that has been posted on the official Dev-Team Blog a few moments ago.
It says on the blog:
That team is hard at work bringing you a brand new tool to make use of the exploit. It’s not the sort of thing that can be developed overnight so please be patient while waiting for any announcements from them.
In the meantime, we’ve put @pod2g’s exploit into a beta version of PwnageTool to test the waters. The SHAtter exploit was enough to convince the iPod touch 4G to restore to our custom IPSW. The successful result is shown below! It’s all working: customized Preferences to show battery percentage, Cydia, root shell…the works!
Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock. In any event, this is another exciting time for iPhone and iPod touch users…the cat and mouse game continues!
Now, its just the matter of time before a user-friendly version of SHAtter exploit is released to the general public to jailbreak iPhone iPod touch iOS4.1, so stay tuned!
