If you've been keeping up with the Jailbreak scene, the SHAtter exploit is something you should be familiar with by now.
The Dev-Team has recently reported that they have begun testing the exploit, which was developed by @pod2g a few months after @p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team discovered the crash, into a beta version of PwnageTool to get a head start on things.
The result of these tests showcase that the SHAtter exploit clearly has enough power to convince an iPod touch 4G to restore to their custom IPSW. This is the video you see above.
Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock. In any event, this is another exciting time for iPhone and iPod touch users…the cat and mouse game continues!
There you have it folks. We are getting closer and closer each day. This should give many of you some motivation to be patient just a little bit longer. The assumption is that we will see a tool such as greenpois0n shortly followed by a later release of PwnageTool. If your into unlocking your phones, waiting for PwnageTool is a safe investment.
