Latest iPhone firmware unlocked

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:58 am

The latest version of the firmware for Apple’s iPhone has fallen to hackers less than a week after its release.

Two hackers working separately have both succeeded in jailbreaking version 1.1.3 of the firmware, iPhone Atlas reports. One of the hacks requires hardware modification, so it’s not suited for those of a nervous disposition or lacking in electronics expertise.

Another hack by Jonathan Zdziarski, developer of the NES emulator for iPhone, is software only but somewhat complicated. If previous experience is anything to go by, easier jailbreaks will emerge over coming days.
