    cmw (you may know him as niacin, co-author of the tiff exploit, aka jailbreakme.com) has released iBoot, a tool which lets you access the iPhone bootloader via a console.

    Whats it mean? An important first step towards porting other OS's to the iPhone. cmw has already got iPhoneLinux.org up and running, and is actively porting Linux at the moment.

    Using the dev teams nor hack i managed to patch all of my bootloader code directly into iBoot and build a kernel driver that lets you mount the nand on Linux.[/quote]
    ModMyiFone.com teamed up with NegriElectronics.com to get cmw an iPhone to play around with and get that Linux port going, so look for some cool news on that soon.

    here is a command list for iBoot:
    Code:
            help           this list
            script         run script at specific address
            go             jump directly to address
            bootx          boot a kernel cache at specified address
            diags          boot into diagnostics (if present)
            tsys           boot into tsys (if present)
            bdev           block device commands
            image          flash image inspection
            fs             file system commands
            fsboot         try to boot kernel at /kernelcache
            devicetree     create a device tree from the specified address
            ramdisk        create a ramdisk from the specified address
            halt           halt the system (good for JTAG)
            reboot         reboot the device
            poweroff       power off the device

    Aslo, Does this mean we will soon be able to have a WEP hacking utility or our iPhone/iPod Touch

    Thanks,
    Ezra

    Hmm... This seems to have slipped under the radar. I found this post by doing a google search for "ipod touch porting linux". I'm not a linux expert but this appears to be a very good sign for the WEP hacking community. I will continue to watch this one closely. Thank you for bring this to my attention.

    WEP Cracking with such an Underpowered Device just isn't feasible whatsoever. Gathering Packets is fine, but cracking it, just no.

    Aircrack for ipod touch can crack the default key in like 2 minutes. I know it doesn't belong to an actual network, but it shows that once the packets are gathered, it shouldn't take too long. I'm not so sure about WPA, though.
