A new utility has been developed by iH8Sn0w for users interested in figuring out whether they can jailbreak or unlock their iPhone or iPod Touch. F0recast will check your device using the USB connection and examine the baseband and bootloader versions.
Jailbreaking and downgrading have become more complex as different versions of hardware and software are constantly released by Apple. F0recast will tell you if your iPhone is unlockable, if you can downgrade your software, and if your specific model requires a tethered jailbreak.
- F0recast is a tool for Windows that will check your iPods and iPhones to determine whether it is tethered, or unlockable (iPhone Only).
- It is just a real simple app for users who are confused about their device being tethered or able to unlock.
- It even tells iPhone users their Boot loader, so if you are an iPhone 3G user with the 5.8 Bootloader, it will notify you that you can downgrade your baseband if you wish to unlock.
You can get f0recast for Windows for free. Remember, jailbreak and unlock your iPhone at your own risk!
