Jailbreakers Stay With iTunes 8.1.1
It’s an update monday Apple released iTunes 8.2 in Software Update, supports iPhone 3.0; QuickTime 7.6.2 & GarageBand also patched. iTunes 8.2 is not supported current versions of QuickPWN and Pwnage tool. This means you can’t jailbreak you iPhone with iTunes 8.2 so wait for Apples Fix or Newer versions of QuickPWN and Pwnage tool. Chronic Dev explained clearly what Apple did “ It will check the hash of newer firmware images, call the mothership when restoring to beta firmwares, have updated MobileDevice so programs like QuickPwn and anything else that uses MD will get messed up, make sure your device has the correct secutity epoch, chipid, security domain, production mode, board id, bb chip id, etc. They can all be patched, but for now, hold back from updating.”
According toiTunes 8.2 has a new function in iTunes that prevents syncing with passcode locked iPhones/iPod touch’s when in sleep mode.
Musclenerd Tweeted and warns to stay away from iTunes 8.2 unill Dev Team Gets the Rid “ Today’s iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they when they try to identify what’s connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2″ For those who accidentally upgraded their itunes to 8.2 on a Mac Musclenerd guides the way to completely uninstall the iTunes 8.2 type the following commands in terminal and make sure that the iTunes is closed while performing the task.
sudo rm -rf /Applications/iTunes.app /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DeviceLink.framework /System/Library/Extensions/AppleMobileDevice.kext /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iTunesAccess.framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreFP.framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework
Once the operation performed, Download the iTunes 8.1 from here and Install. iPhone 4G A.K.A. iPhoe’09 first preview is just around the corner. I hope Dev team gets the hold of iPhone OS 3.0 for iPhone 2G, 3G and 4G very soon.
