iPhone 1.1.4 Helpful Reads. and Hints

Posted on March 8, 2008. Filed under: iPhone 1.1.4 | Tags: , , , |

Sorry I have been gone for a while… but is anybody really there! Haha… (sigh) as I cry alone in my room :). But anyways here are some helpful links to some good reads for those iPhone hackers out there. The iPhone Dev team portal is probably the first place to start, since they kick ass at pwning the iPhone day after day.

Get your iPhone tools HERE

Enjoy

* The iPhone Wiki – The site that started it all for me. Lots of great technical information and history there, but unfortunately spammers have also invaded the site recently, making life difficult for the maintainers. (Now Defunct)

* The Hackint0sh iPhone Forums– Started up around the same time as the iPhone Dev Wiki, so again, a wealth of information and helpful people here.

* iPhone Dev Team Portal – Site for the original iPhone dev team. The people who started it all.

* iPhone Elite Dev Team – The elite iPhone dev team. Used to be quite active and open with information.

* Geohot’s Blog – Geohot is the first person to have a SIM unlocked iPhone (outside of Apple). Knows the iPhone hardware as well as the Apple engineers. Though his software skills are still in question… (hey, I cleaned up bits of the fake IPSF server code for my own use, so I’ve seen his code) πŸ˜‰

* George’s Blog – No, this is not Geohot’s blog! πŸ˜‰ But it’s still a good resource for understanding the technical details behind iPhone hacking discoveries.

* The Touchdev Wiki – Same structure as the iPhone Dev Wiki, but for the iPod Touch (or iTouch).

* iPhone Toolchain Project Page – Essential for iPhone application developers. Just make sure to release a standalone version of your killer iPhone app, ok? πŸ˜‰

* anySIM Project Page – The source code for anySIM. Interesting to me, maybe to you too?

* Nate True’s iPhone Utils and Info – Nate did a lot of the early iPhone hacking and maintained iBrickr for a while (kinda like iNdependence for Windows with a fancier interface — I’ve never been much of a UI tweaker — I enjoy the technical details more). Still a useful site for files and technical info.

* Erica Sadun’s Blog – Erica is one of the first major iPhone application developers and continues to produce interesting apps for the iPhone. Not to mention she has a loyal following amongst the sexually frustrated, male-dominated crowd of would-be iPhone hackers.
