There isn’t too much going on in the world of jailbreaking at the moment. The development teams are still busy working on the iPhone 5 jailbreak, although we did have a brief spell of excitement when an unknown, DreamJB announced that an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak would be available on 22nd December. This was soon shot down in flames as a fake and, other than that, it’s all been very quiet – until now.
iH8snow, popular iOS hacker has announced an update to his app, f0recast. The new version, 1.4 includes a few new features, such as the ability to detect if a particular device can be jailbroken or not, access to the latest firmware for your device and it automatically checks for updates for you. It also includes updated support for the most up to date devices, such as the iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPod Touch 4 etc.
While f0recast is not a vital or essential tool for jailbreaking, it is a handy addition to anyone’s idevice toolbox, especially as the new updated version can save you a great deal of time and effort in trying to determine if your device is ripe for jailbreaking and in pointing you in the right direction of the latest firmware updates.
