Not that we would endorse this type of activity at Handheld Learning but it seems that hackers are getting younger. The latest hack that unlocks the iPod Touch and iPhone to allow the installation of 3rd party applications is the creation of a 13 year-old developer according to the iphonehacks.com website:


GUI-based tool appropriately named "iJailBreak for iPhone" which will not only Jailbreak the iPhone OS v1.1.1 but will also install the Installer.app which opens the door to install unauthorized third-party iPhone applications fairly easily.

Brian gives credit to Arix, a 13-year-old developer, for the iPhone version of iJailBreak. The 13-year old old developer had released iJailBreak for iPod touch but had been kind enough to also release the source code of his tool, which seems to have been used by Brian for the iPhone version.
