SHAtter exploit found by Pod2g & Chronic dev team turned out to be really power and capable of jailbreaking all iDevice forever including recently launched iPhone 4. Being Bootrom exploit it will not be possible for Apple to fix it without changing hardware. Yesterday we saw iPhone dev team demo of SHAtter jailbreak in action on iPhone 4.
Now here is even more interesting stuff for Apple fan boys. iPhone dev team has confirmed that AppleTV which is supposedly runs on iOS 4.1 can also be jailbroken with SHAtter. The test was carried on AppleTV iOS 4.1 firmware which is available for download from Apple server, SHAtter has been successfully used to decrypt Apple TV iOS keys.
Here an Update posted on iPhone Dev team Blog,
“UPDATE #1: 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:
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!)”
And here is tweet from MuscleNerd member of iPhone dev team,
“Those interested in *potential* AppleTV JBs, better to buy early! Remember iPhone3GS hardware was updated to fix JB hole”
So if you are looking for AppleTV then this is right for you as jailbreak is very likely possible for AppleTV iOS 4.1.
