How to hack your iPhone or iPod Touch

How to ‘Liberate’ your iPhone or iPod Touch

Have you ever wanted to break free from Apple’s enclosed list of apps.? Well, by simply doing the following, you will be free at last to try out other third-party apps. on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

iPod TouchThe hackers of our generation are getting stronger and more determined as ever, and after Apple’s new 1.1.1 update that rendered unlocked iPhones useless, hackers took it personal. Therefore a group of hackers including hdm/metasploit, rezn, dinopio, drudge, kroo, pumpkin, davidc, dunham, and NerveGas have put together the “One-Touch” instant jailbreak which works with the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Basically making your device’s full disk available for use and adding Installer.app to the device, giving you access to installing almost any third-party app. on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

It’s simple to use, just open up your Safari web browser on your iPhone or iPod Touch and visit JailBreakMe.com (make sure NOT to click on this link unless you want to hack your device now!!!), after visiting the site simply read the instructions provided, then scroll down and click on the “Install AppSnapp” button. You’ve just hacked your iPhone or iPod Touch, that’s it!!!

Additional Notes: When “jailbreaking” (hacking) your device, Safari will commonly disappear and you will be brought back to the home screen, once there give it a minute for the device to restart and make sure not to touch anything at this point. Once your iPhone or iPod Touch has restarted and you get the “Slide to Unlock” screen, go ahead and unlock it and you’ll find that a new icon (Installer.app) is available on your home screen.

Also sometimes your Safari web browser will hang/stall when you activate the hack. If this happens, just press the Home button for about 5 seconds until it returns you to the home screen, then try again. Usually it’s best to use WiFi rather than EDGE when jailbreaking your device.

Advanced User Note: If you want to add SSH access to your device, then you’ll have to install the BSD subsystem, Community Sources, and then install Open SSH (you might also have to upgrade the Installer.app for this to work properly). By adding SSH/SSHFS, you’ll be able to open Finder Windows which may come in handy since you will have the ability to drag and drop files on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The hack worked perfectly fine for me, and it only took about a minute to set up. Now I can add almost any app. I want to my iPhone and my iPod Touch. Hope you have fun with your newly hacked device!!!
