Amidst the plethora of all the jailbreak tools out there comes a new entrant; one claiming to be better than the lot, and much more. This tool, called the Gull1hack, promises wonders for iPhone 3GS new bootrom and iPod Touch 3G owners, since this tool not only claims an untethered jailbreak but also an unlock solution using some modifications in Fuzzyband. It also claims to work with all iPhone and iPod Touch models till date.
The Gull1hack has been developed by a team of hackers christening themselves ‘Gull1hack team”. While they do not have any previous history of iPhone OS hacking, they have posted a couple of videos so far on their blog, the latter of which even shows f0recast detecting their ‘test’ device as a new bootrom 3GS. Their method, as they claim…
“We just found an amazing Exploit in the Boot-System of the 3GS with the new Bootrom! This Exploit works on ALL iPhone and iPod touch devices!
While booting, we overun the buffer memory, letting the iPhone think there is something wrong; But in the moment it tries to enter safe mode, we send a boot signal like Blackra1n or Redsn0w
So no Computer required!”
Check out the videos below.
Sounds too good to be true? It probably is. Please be advised that neither the dev-team nor geohot or any other reliable source has yet verified this as a working, legitimate hack. So until there’s word out that it is the real deal, we will advise you to hold your horses. There are much reliable working solutions like redsn0w and good old pwnage tool out there, so for now, stick to them. We will update you as soon as we get some development on the Gull1hack front, so stay tuned!
Update: As it turns out, the hack is fake.
