Thunderst0rm Confirmed As Fake
Looks like it pays to be suspicious sometimes, as the Thunderst0rm jailbreak that claimed to be able to jailbreak the iPhone OS 3.1.3 has turned out to be a fake. The file size is due to a bunch of unnecessary files that are included in the package and the tool only seems to call a simple message box (according to the reverse engineered code by iH8sn0w). As it is, we’ll have to wait a little while longer in order to get real working tools to jailbreak devices on the iPhone 3.1.3 such as blackra1n and PwnageTool which are expected to be released after the iPad 3G arrives later this month.
All this software does is create a batch file that starts up when you start your computer, displays a fake iTunes error message saying: “Your iTunes had crashed. error 7 (ASL.dll)“. If you were affected by turbo2sn0w, you can remove it by going to your Startup folder and removing the iTunes.bat file.
Avoid this software and do not install it! Trusted jailbreak software will always be added in the download section in the iPhone toolbar.
