Video: First iPhone Running Hacked 2.0, New Features + Any Carrier

A new video of an iPhone running iPhone firmware 2.0 has surfaced. Posted on Gizmodo earlier, the video shows an iPhone running a fully hacked iPhone firmware 2.0 (or 1.2, depending on who you're asking) and demonstrates many of the new features found in the updated firmware.

The 2.0 hack was completed by the iPhone Dev Team, and the hole that was found is described by the Dev Team to be considerably difficult for Apple to close. According to Gizmodo, the hole may be considered "impossible" to close.

The hacked 2.0 firmware allows any GSM carrier and the installation of any third party software. Watch the video below to see the 2.0 iPhone in action


New features seen on the hacked 2.0 include Exchange support, an improved calculator, parental controls, the iPhone AppStore, SDK support, Cisco VPN support, and mass email deletion. Certainly more features are part of the 2.0 update, but these are the features visible in this initial demonstration.

The iPhone in the video is running on T-Mobile, not AT&T.

Why does the "video" link take you to a stupid Intel page?

You probably clicked on an advertisement. Those double-underscore links are ads. I see those things everywhere now.
