Unlocked iPhones BEWARE!

“A warning for all you iPhone jailbreak enthusiasts: Apple’s newest OS software update contains quite a stink bomb—10.5.6 disables the Pwnage tool, making you unable to jailbreak or unlock your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The update prevents jailbreaking by disabling the software at the computer level, a step up from what the company usually does: release a firmware update that re-locks the iPhone. Now it’s stopping your Mac from recognizing the device in DFU (device firmware update) mode by inflicting new code on the USB ports on Apple computers.”

    “We believe this behavior is due to a kernel bug not a specific countermeasure by Apple.”

    And in other news, they software unlocked the iPhone 3G! Ahh lovely days!
