Application security programs and practises

iDevice owners, including folk with an iPad 2, can now jailbreak their phones'n'fondleslabs with a simple visit to a website.

The site, www.jailbreakme.com, is once again up and running - coder comex last had it live a year ago - to open up iPads, GSM iPhone 3GS and 4s, and 3G and 4G iPod Touches, all running iOS 4.3, 4.3.3 or anything in between.

CDMA iPhone 4s running iOS 4.2.8 can be jailbroken too.

Jailbreakme

This is the first jailbreak for the iPad 2, which has proved tricky to crack using techniques developed in the past.

The new jailbreak installs Cydia, the independent app store from which you can download software that hasn't been sanctioned by Apple.

iOS hackers the iPhone Dev Team recommend using Cydia to install a utility called PDF Patcher 2. It blocks a hole that's usually covered at a remove by Apple's software but exposed by the comex hack. ®
