San Francisco – The iPhone Dev Team has released a new
browser-based means of "jailbreaking" Apple’s (NASD: AAPL) iPhone so that it can
run unauthorized applications and operate on unauthorized networks. Available
at, the code reportedly works with all Apple devices running
iOS 4 and iOS 4.01, including the iPad. The U.S. Copyright Office last week
ruled that jailbreaking of iPhones, among other circumventions of security
technology, is not illegal — although Apple maintains that jailbreaking an iPhone
still voids its warranty.
