Earlier yesterday, we reported you about the newly launched jailbreak tool for iOS 5 / iOS 5.0.1 named “Ac1dSn0w” from the new introduced team called “Pwn DevTeam.” The team has launched the tool for Mac OS users only and claimed to be launching soon a new beta update of the tool for Windows. After an hour of testing, other jailbreak hackers came to know that the team has actually used some snippet of codes that’s a copyright of Apple, and they have directly infringed the Apple’s code.
We have as well tested the jailbreak tool before putting its tutorial on the web, but didn’t go to such a deepness. Before the Pwn DevTeam, the other well-known both Chronic and iPhone Dev Team was known for their reverse engineering in code of Apple, which let them to create a jailbreak tool for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
In addition to illegality, the new tool as well as doesn’t introduce any new jailbreak exploit works on the iH8Sn0w discovered exploits and methods, as well as only provides tethered boot on the devices. MuscleNerd, the key member of the iPhone Dev Team has said that hosting such files on the server may cause DMCA takedowns as well from Apple. He clearly stated that the team has used the Apple’s code for more than 15 times in the jailbreak tool called “Ac1dSn0w”.
We have removed the download link from our web, and recommend you not to use the jailbreak tool until they didn’t fix out the code and comes up with authentic exploit. We believe the Pwn DevTeam is the same team, which appears at the release of iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak and claims to launch a jailbreak tool named “Ac1dRain”.
We have reached the Pwn Dev Team members to say something on this, and clear out the all things or come up with the fix on this issue.
