iPhone Hacks & Software — Getting Nearer to iPhone Unlocking
With the iPhone news from the Apple launch, the amount of iPhone hacks has increased exponentially and a lot of energy has been put into working through the iPhone software to locate where the passwords and also the “glue” is for a number of apps. The “Holy Grail” right now is iPhone unlocking.
iPhone unlocking is actually most requested hack, and unlocking means that the iPhone may be used on any network and not simply AT&T’s. There has been a couple of states have managed this iPhone hack ultimate but so far it’s all just rumors although it seems that a few are indeed getting close and also have managed to gain ownership from the file system. Sieving with the iPhone software and especially the gif images which are embedded appears to be the number preoccupation associated with a self respecting iPhone hack merchant around the globe.
One writer at GigaOM claims they have gotten all the iPhone functions working except the phone, voicemail and text features. To tell the truth I do not see the reason for all this, getting an apple iphone hack to unlock the beast is not going to constitute much use if you don’t make use of the iPhone overseas and on top of that you’ll have no 3G support.
Where I actually do see a value in getting the iPhone software exposed, is that after we possess the iPhone unlocked then having the ability to use the device as an ultimately portable minicomputer working on the wifi network only then do we have something that will be useful.
Around the iPhone news grapevine, it’s not just iPhone hacks that are streaming in thick and fast, there are also a series of full-blown web apps which i’ve to say is fairly impressive — well done guys! Probably the best one at the moment is the iPhone hack “iChat for iPhone” which supplies you with IM capability on AIM. In addition to that, the iPhone software source is available for this hack and you can host it on your own machine. If you’re really serious about keeping up-to-date with the latest in iPhone unlocking and iPhone hacks then browse the iPhone Dev Wiki that seems in my experience is the closest to getting an iPhone unlocking hack.
iPhone software that you could download on your new iPhone can be found at iPhone Applications on the internet. Here you’ll find all iPhone software and applications for example iWeather and more games than you can shake a stick at. Unfortunately, until we obtain iPhone hack which will open up the iPhone to 3rd party applications we are going to have to make do with Apple iPhone software that we’re allowed to play with right now.
How long before we have an iPhone hack that can help us unlock the iPhone completely is much like asking just how long is a bit of string, however with the energy that’s being devoted to it, I guess it could be every day now.
