iDongle is a device you can use to jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2 as well as iPod Touch 2G/3G. You might need this because Jailbreaking an iPhone 3GS 3.1.2 or iPod Touch is not an easy, I admit. Even with the release of free jailbreaking softwares like blackra1n and Redsnow, emancipating your beloved iPhone is still a precarious maneuver. So much so that if you make a tiny mistake in jail breaking you run the risk of corrupting your phone or your iPod Touch. In our case, we use Snowbreeze 1.5.2, which you can download free (no charges, whatsoever) in jailbreaking our iPhone 3GS. You can check this out in our previous article.
But if you have doubts on how to jailbreak an iPhone, iDongle is something you should consider getting for your pricey device. This hacker-made standalone hardware jailbreaking tool will jailbreak and activate any iPhone or iPod Touch running version 3.1.2 firmware. All that is needed is for you to plug it into the dock connector and it will do its job automatically. The inventor said it only takes 25 seconds for the iDongle to do a complete jailbreak. Please watch the video and witness the almost-miraculous act of iDongle. No other jailbreaking tool can match iDongle’s astonishing exploit. It’s easy to use and requires no deep knowledge in computing.
Furthermore, the iDongle will also reboot an already jailbroken iPhone without the need for a computer. This is very convenient for people on the go who owns a jailbroken device. It’s been the bane of software-based jailbroken devices to suffer from intermittent crashes. The iDongle iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreaking tool is the perfect solution for this problem, just plug it in your problematic phone or iPod Touch and get it back to working status again in a matter of seconds.
Based on the twitter posts of Renaud, inventor of the iDongle, he has already received more than $1000 donation from eager people who wants to receive a working model of the iDongle. He initially created a dozen iDongle units but due to the high demand, he is scheduled to ship more than 100 iDongle units this week. His solicitations for donation are supposedly for the development of the iDongle. We assume the device is being prepared to jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3 (latest firmware version) although we’ll have to confirm this with the manufacturers.
