For information, the hacker team that developed this tool is not the dev-team, chronic dev team, GeoHot or Comex. This is a brand new team of hackers and maybe they will reserve a good surprise for our iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices: p Who knows?
Note that the Jailbreak is tethered, and yes even the Apple TV 2G is no exception: s
The tool is currently only available on MAC and the hacker team has not given any details regarding the release of a tool on Windows?
So let?s go back to the tutorial, we will introduce you to the Jailbreak method. The latter is extremely simple and the software has a rather nice and very professional interface. To believe that it was developed by Apple itself: p
Tutorial ? Part 1: Create IPSW
