iPhone File System Hacked, Custom Ringtones to Come Soon

Illustration for article titled iPhone File System Hacked, Custom Ringtones to Come Soon

The iPhone file system has been compromised and you can access it using iPhoneInterface. Full access to the file system means custom ringtones and all kinds of fun stuff.

One them you can see in the image: They moved the Safari application from the dashboard to the iPhone space. This also opens the door to running custom applications as soon as someone figures out how to program without an SDK or adapt normal Cocoa apps to the iPhone. And the unlocking feels so close now that you can almost touch it.

The version of the tool has not been posted yet but, according to the iPhone wizards at IRC channel #iPhone, it will be out soon. Likely, the application won't be easy to use for us mere mortals, so don't go around the IRC channel pestering them with requests. If you are not a hacker, you will have to wait until someone else creates a graphic application that wraps the amazing work these people are doing.

Like Strong Bad would say: p0wned!

"Is not landing on the moon but it sure beats posting inane, holier-than-thou, look-at-me-look-at-me, useless comments in Gizmodo."

That's a good example of an inane, holier-than-thou, look-at-me-look-at-me, useless comment, Jesus.

Just because you think this is important news, doesn't mean everybody does. Your job is to post the news you think readers will find interesting/informative. Sometimes you get it right, sometimes not. Some people will like this, others won't.

The readers (aka, the revenue generators) are given the ability to post comments and feedback on the articles you post. Take the criticism, good and bad, but there's no need for a personal attack.

OK, now I'm ready for personal attacks.
