This is the place to post tasks that need to be done on the wiki. Also this is the place for proposed changes. I heard about people wanting a favicon and arranging the main page into categories.

Can I propose a page for acidsn0w? I heard that there was stolen code, so I haven't posted. --Dylan Laws 17:02, 17 January 2012 (MST)

The first beta did use stolen code, but the second beta fixed that. As it is still in beta, a page may not be a good idea. It does have a good user-base as shown in their blog comments, but it is up to the sysops. If you are in the Pwn Dev Team, then NO. --5urd 17:09, 17 January 2012 (MST)
I am not in their team. :P I'll wait till/if they release it. --Dylan Laws 17:37, 17 January 2012 (MST)
I want to make something clear about this wiki, it's called "The iPhone Wiki", not "The iPhone Community Wiki", or even "The Jailbreaking Wiki". This site exists to document the iPhone, not who made what GUI. A jailbreak tool that doesn't introduce exploits or isn't very widely used isn't notable. To clarify, the Limera1n_Exploit page is far more valuable than the limera1n page. Please focus on adding technical content instead of thinly veiled advertisements. For example, it's appalling we don't have a page documenting ASLR --geohot 23:16, 17 January 2012 (MST)
I would also like to see the Baseband ticket system documented --geohot 14:48, 18 January 2012 (MST)

opensn0w article undeletion

http said to notify when released.. we have something tangible now. It's open source, so there is no 'cut' release for the time being. --Austen Frazier 15:01, 14 January 2012 (MST)

Where are the released files? --Dylan Laws 02:02, 16 January 2012 (MST)
On the deleted page it had this link: -- http 03:41, 16 January 2012 (MST)
What exactly does it do, I've read over the readme but not fully understaning the program, what it can run on, and if its a console or GUI. --Dylan Laws 11:25, 16 January 2012 (MST)
The readme says "Why not use redsn0w? It has a graphical user interface!" means it is a console app designed for implementation in other programs. --5urd 12:05, 16 January 2012 (MST)


Am I allowed to propose a new page for my new program silversn0w? --Dylan Laws 23:48, 13 January 2012 (MST)--The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dylan Laws (talk) 14 January 2012, 5:44 GMT. Please consult this page for more info on how to sign pages, and how to fix this.

What does it do? --http 23:27, 13 January 2012 (MST)
Right now its a limera1n injector, you can upload files through iBoot (e.g iBSS, iBEC, ramdisks), but im working on making it a jailbreak.--Dylan Laws 23:48, 13 January 2012 (MST)
Is this ok? --Dylan Laws 11:29, 14 January 2012 (MST)
You just posted it anyway and its crap, can someone delete the page? --Ryanb93 12:22, 14 January 2012 (MST)
You posted it w/o the discussion being finalized! --5urd 14:38, 14 January 2012 (MST)

@Dialexio: How did it violate GPL v3? Was it not open sourced while using iRecovery (which is)? --5urd 14:41, 14 January 2012 (MST)

Indeed. --Dialexio 14:53, 14 January 2012 (MST)
What's the problem? --Dylan Laws 15:00, 14 January 2012 (MST)
Any program that uses software released under the GNU GPL (any version), in this case iRecovery, the program must be open source. Thats why sn0wbreeze is (XPwn, VFDecrypt), Seas0nPass (XPwn, VFDecrypt), iDecryptIt (VFDecrypt, 7-zip), etc. --5urd 20:32, 15 January 2012 (MST)

If we must discuss this then shall we do it now? --Dylan Laws 15:02, 14 January 2012 (MST)

? --5urd 15:06, 14 January 2012 (MST)
just delete it and remove me if you want, do don't want any part do what geohot has made. I've got my own wiki on my site, so, I'm good. I'm just a useless dead weight here. --Dylan Laws 15:13, 14 January 2012 (MST)
We arn't trying to make you upset, but you arn't following the rules of GUIs are stated in the category. --5urd 16:22, 14 January 2012 (MST)
It's fine, I'm just kinda upset that most of the time, there's already a program out there for most of the stuff I make. I'll contribute to this wiki as much as I can. Maybe when i/if I finish silversn0w I'll ask if I can post it here.--Dylan Laws 16:55, 14 January 2012 (MST)


Is 2.2b1 5G26 or 5G27, because on Beta Firmware, it says 5G27 while on the previous revisions of VFDecrypt Keys is said 5G26 --5urd 18:47, 14 January 2012 (MST)


I was wondering if you can install Renameuser and make me an admin? --Cole Johnson 11:21, 7 January 2012 (MST)

Installed, who do you want renamed? --geohot 22:26, 7 January 2012 (MST)
I wanted to be renamed to 5urd. My twitter account name --Cole Johnson 14:16, 8 January 2012 (MST)

Banning GUI Tools

I'm starting to think banning "GUI tools" is a good idea, the silversn0w discussion was removed without consensus and a page was created. Like wikipedia, we need notability criteria. If your tool isn't used by at least a 1000 people, it does not belong here. To the posters of GUI tools, why not spend your time creating constructive pages instead, documenting poorly documented things and fixing typos? --geohot 13:53, 14 January 2012 (MST)

I don't think that will be neccessary. The silversn0w thing was created before the discussion was even finished. That is the problem. Maybe a ban rule on people who post things w/o a finalized discussion... --5urd 14:38, 14 January 2012 (MST)
Maybe a "new page wizard" could be used, like on Wikipedia. It could ask "what is the article about?", then it keeps asking questions till it decides whether the page should be allowed or to ask here first. thekirbylover 22:47, 14 January 2012 (MST)

Rename Requests

The plugin to do renames has been installed, renames are at the discretion of our current admins. --geohot 13:53, 14 January 2012 (MST)

It looks like only you can perform renames at the moment. The extension's page says you can add a line of code (I think to LocalSettings.php… not sure though) to give admins the ability to perform renames, though. --Dialexio 14:50, 14 January 2012 (MST)
bureaucrats can do it already. But geohot is the only one... --5urd 15:06, 14 January 2012 (MST)
sysops can do it now too, sorry thought that was the default --geohot 20:21, 14 January 2012 (MST)

SOPA blackout

Will the iPhone wiki be participating in SOPA blackout? (Jan 17 12:00 AM GMT to Jan 18 11:59 PM GMT) To activate, just drop this at the bottom of localsettings.php:

if (gmdate('Y') == '2012' && gmdate('m') == '01' && (gmdate('d') == '17' || gmdate('d') == '18'))
	die('<html><head><script>window.location = "";</script></head></html>');
