iPhone Hacked Already

Not something I would normally post about, and not something I condone *grin* but it looks like the iPhone has been hacked already.

I have no idea what they are saying in the instructions so it isn’t exactly an easy Hack. The question I have is how long before already hacked iPhones turn up on eBay and how much you reckon they will go for?

    hmm, some people really need to do something useful with their time. I don’t see the point in getting your iPhone to be an interactive shell. Seems like a waste of money to me.

    Oh well. I don’t think this will pose a huge security risk, as you obviously need to mess around with the iPhone itself for the shell to become accessible.

    I think there would be a larger market for an activated phone that was de-restricted so that you could use it with an existing SIM card.

    Hi Chris

    I first spotted this story and discussion of it earlier this afternoon at Slashdot and had a glance down some of the comments. It appears that it is not an interactive shell at all – at least, not like the bash, csh, tcsh, etc that we are all aware of from OSX’s Terminal. Rather, it’s a boot loader, which is a different beast.

    This is not saying that it couldn’t lead to the “discovery” of how to access a proper shell – but they’re not there yet.

    It’s a normal thing. It’s a device, and it’s going to get hacked. Does that mean that Apple will loose money, nope, ATT will loose, but their business does not revolve around the iphone. So it’s a good thing for us the consumers. I’m all for it. So hack way guys, hack away.
