iPhone 4 on Verizon Jailbroken with Greenpois0n, Pwned for Life ?

This is BIG! It seems that Verizon iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.6 has been jailbroken using Greenpois0n RC5. Multiple iPhone 4 users on Verizon have confirmed via tweet that the Greenpois0n RC5 untethered jailbreak tool worked flawlessly on CDMA iPhone 4.

Hard to verify (seems legit) : @lovetenderhh claims he has a verizon i4 and greenpois0n RC5 works ! Thank you for the test and sharing ! Via

While we are not sure about how authentic the information is but few weeks back, Musclenerd confirmed that the Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.6 can be jailbroken on its launch day with limera1n. And those who buy early, the CDMA iPhone 4 unit will be pwned for Life! Interestingly, Greenpois0n uses the same USB exploit as used in limera1n tool. But we were not sure that the CDMA iPhone 4 gets its own taste of freedom so soon. We need to have more tidbits from the hacking community to trickle in.

Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.6 will be Jailbroken & Pwned for Life on its Launch ?

iPhone Dev Team seems to have a lot up their sleeves for Verizon iPhone 4 coming up on 10th February. The latest tweet from Musclenerd confirms that the Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.6 will be jailbroken (tethered) on its launch day. And those who buy early, the CDMA iPhone 4 unit will be pwned for Life!

If the i4 crypto engine couldn’t get those, it would have been bad sign for limera1n. But it did, so there’s still hope.

When damon_taylor asked, @musclenerd deciphering key Firmware is an important step toward completion of the jailbreak of the iPhone. But what is the next step?

Musclenerd Replied: If limera1n is still there, it means at *least* tethered JB on 0-day (and for those who buy early, forever). Via twitter 1,2

Apparently, just after Apple released iOS 4.2.6 for Verizon iPhone 4, Musclenerd was able to extract the keys through the iPhone 4′s crypto engine, confirming that Geohot’s exploit in Limera1n will continue to work. It is surprising; that Apple did not fixed the limera1n exploit despite revising the hardware.

Sony PlayStation 3 Is Now Pwned For Life As Geohot Posts Root Keys

A few days ago, a small group of German hackers called fail0verflow found an exploit that could completely open up the PlayStation 3 console. Dubbed as “epic PS3 security bypass”, they found the method to calculate the security keys, which is just a Sony signature that lets thePS3 know whether the application they’re trying to open is legit, or not.

Today, the infamous iPhone hacker George Hotz (or just Geohot) has released the PS3 Root Key publicly along with a message thanking the fail0verflow team. He also said, he doesn’t condone piracy, and “it’d be fun to be on the other side” with console makers, helping them in making their consoles more secure.

…and this is a real self, hello world

shouts to the guys who did PSL1GHT
without you, I couldn’t release this

Now this root key is in the open, anyone can create their own applications, custom firmwares or even pirated ISOs and the PS3 will work with them without any problems. fail0verflow team has said that this exploit will make Linux run again on PS3 systems. This feature waspreviously removed by Sony, after Geohot claimed he had hacked the PS3. [via PSX-Scene]
