Apple TV jailbreak exploit found


Apple TV PWNEDIt has been confirmed that  Apple TV is running iOS 4.1. The device isn’t yet in people’s homes, but the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers. The developer of SHAtter exploit @pod2g has used the SHAtter exploit to decrypt its keys. So, Apple TV jailbreak is possible using the same SHAtter exploit.

Here is the update from Dev-Team:

It’s looking like SHAtter is going to be the gift that keeps on giving.  Even though the new AppleTV isn’t yet in people’s homes, the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers and SHAtter has been used to decrypt its keys!  The main filesystem (“Mojave8M89.K66OS”) key for 018-8609-066.dmg is:

31c700a852f1877c88efc05bc5c63e8c7f081c4cb28d024ed7f9b0dbc98c7e1406e499c6

If you’re familiar with vfdecrypt, you can use that key to decrypt the image and mount it.  If you do so, feel free to use the comments section to discuss what you discover there :) (And of course, thanks @pod2g!)

Unlock FM Radio in Droid 2



Didn’t know the Droid 2 had an FM Radio? Yeah, neither did we, but thanks to some clever folks over at XDA-Developers, you can now listen to your favorite radio stations at will. As with most things like this, a bit of hacking and command line work is necessary, but other than that it is very simple. Just make sure your Droid 2 is rooted first or nothing is going to happen. For those interested, hit the source link for full instructions!
