Matsumitsu released a new version of his Trakt.tvSiriProxy Plugin. In the previous release, you could only use the plugin to see what’s on TV tonight. Now you can also mark episodes as watched by saying “I just saw season 4 episode 5 of Dexter“. SiriProxy will then connect to trakt.tv via its API and mark the episode as seen.
Yesterday pod2g reported that he is now working on porting his untether exploit to the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 (devices with the A5 processor). He had some issues with the A5 caches, but after just one day of trying, it looks like the issue has been resolved.
OK, figured it out, the A5 cache is not a problem anymore.
I sorted it out by doing the untether in a single thread and by flushing all the dcache then all the icache in a row at a strategical point of the process.
It took me like a hundred of tests to find the key. Hard for the nerves.
Recently, there have been a lot of people asking for iPhone 4S keys to use them for their own servers. Many people didn’t want to give out their iPhone 4S keys because they feared that their keys might get blacklisted.
But according to the Technetec Dev Team, a ban of your keys will NOT be permanent. It looks like the X-Ace Host is the key that gets blacklisted, not the UUID or UDID. And a new X-Ace Host is generated every two weeks. There is also a way to reset the X-Ace Host manually. Continue reading →
Santa has a new assistant to help him deliver gifts to the children: Siri. When Santa asks how his day looks like, Siri reports he has 3.7 billion appointments. Siri also tells Santa to go “Go easy on the cookies”. Continue reading →
Apple released a new version of the iPhone 4S 5.0.1 firmware yesterday. Surprisingly, the ramdisks are not encrypted in that release. That’s why it is now possible to write a simple script to extract all the necessary Siri files from the 5.0.1 ipsw. And because the ipsw is publicly available, obtaining the Siri files is completely legal.
In addition to SiriAuth, @StanTheRipper also released AuthGrabber. This program allows you to easily obtain the iPhone 4S keys with your server. Just connect your iPhone 4S to your server and use Siri. The authentication files will automatically be copied into a textfile and you can then either add them to your server or to your older iOS device directly.
Requirements for AuthGarbber:
An iPhone 4S
A UNIX system (Linux, Mac)
Port 53 and Port 443 are open on your computer firewall and your router firewall (If you’re doing this from your home PC)
