Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 Released

In one of my previous posts I told you about MuscleNerd planning to release a new version of Redsn0w only for developers on iOS 6 to install SSH bundle on their device to test and improve their jailbreak tweaks. This will not install Cydia so it is recommended that only developers on iOS 6 should use it.

RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 Jailbreak Supported Devices:

  • iPhone 4 (CDMA)
  • iPhone 4 (GSM)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod Touch 4G

If you’re not a developer, it’s best you stay far away from this jailbreak. This version of RedSn0w will not hacktivate your device, thus only a developer with a registered UDID can activate. You will need to point RedSn0w to the iOS 6 beta 1 firmware before you begin the jailbreak, as the tool can’t fetch the firmware. Since this a tethered jailbreak, you will need to use Just Boot Tethered every time you want to reboot your device.

You can download Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 from our downloads page.

KASLR Spells Trouble…

One feature of the iOS 6 firmware that was not discussed at the WWDC 2012 was KASLR. What does KASLR stand for you might ask? Well, KASLR stands for Kernal Address Space Layout Randomization, which is essentially the next step up from ASLR that was introduced in iOS 5. For non technology orientated individuals both KASLR and ASLR serve a simple purpose – to make your iOS device more secure. This is great for those running stock iOS devices, but for the Jailbreaking community this spells trouble.

With the addition of KASLR in iOS 6 it essentially breaks any current exploits hackers have in their possessions to Jailbreak the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Hacker @Veeence has recently tweeted about KASLR and has mentioned that due to KASLR the Rocky Racoon exploits are not longer valid and as such new exploits are needed.

No. iOS 6 is not compatible with Rocky Racoon exploits.iOS 6 now has KASLR, a new security layer (anti-JB), so new exploits are needed.

Although KASLR will definitely mean more work for hackers in the Jailbreaking community, it is not the end of Jailbreaking. And according @i0n1c, KASLR is not even something to be too worried about because there are other security features implemented in iOS 6 that are going to be more troublesome.

From what I hear KASLR is one of the things in iOS 6 that will not be a problem at all. Other stuff is more troubling.

I shall keep you posted about any new discoveries made in iOS 6.

Silver iOS Scheme Instead Of Blue?

The apps that come pre-installed with your iOS device haven’t changed much in both the look and functionality department, since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007.

But Apple may be gearing up to make at least some subtle changes in iOS 6 such as changing the color scheme used in the pre-installed apps.

A couple of days ago Boy Genius’s Reports posted a mockup of the new Maps app, which could be one of the major new features of iOS 6. According to their trusted source, Apple won’t be ditching just Google for a revamped Maps app with 3D mode, but they might also be ditching the traditional blue color scheme seen across their core apps for silver.

Cult of Mac noticed this change in the new WWDC 2012 app that was released earlier today. Apple has replaced the traditional blue bar along the top and the black bar at the bottom with silver bars.

We didn’t read much into these claims until we stumbled across the Cupertino company’s new WWDC 2012 app. Unlike last year’s app — which featured a black bar along the bottom and a blue bar along the top, like traditional iPhone apps — this one sports silver bars and buttons both top and bottom. And I must say, it looks a lot simpler and a lot cleaner.

The WWDC 2012 app is not the only app that sports the silver color scheme. iPhoto app released back in March and a number of pre-installed iPad apps such as  YouTube, Maps and Mail app sport the silver color scheme.

So it is possible that Apple will transition to the silver color scheme for all the pre-installed iPhone apps in iOS 6.

What do you think about the silver color scheme for iOS apps? Which one do you prefer?

iPad 3 with iOS 6? O_o

Today folks over at ArsTechnica have spotted some really interesting and intriguing revelations in their server logs, such as devices running iOS 6 and high resolution screens in the 2048×1536 dimensions and that is what we are expecting from the retina iPad 3.

Here’s what they have to say:

While digging through our logs in preparation for our monthly browser stat report, we found 346 visits from a device with a screen resolution of 2048×1536—the exact resolution rumored for the “retina” display in the next-generation iPad. Although a screen resolution by itself isn’t much to go on, a quick search around the Web indicates that there are very few devices in current use that have this same resolution.
