iPhone Dev team came up with a news that will help lots of hackers at the moment so many must be familiar with Apple’s SDK emulator for iOS devices which only emulates into API level. Developer of the original WinPwn tool, @cmw has tweeted that there is soon to come a virtual emulator of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for Windows and Mac.
From his tweet:
another point i would just like to make is that apple does not have an emulator. They *simulate* at the api level but it’s not hardware emu!
@neb120 www.iemu.org it’s an emulator for iPhones/iPads. It will let devs work in Windows/Linux and also make jailbreaking much easier
iPhone Dev Team, @MuscleNerd has sung praises of the yet to come iEMU virtual emulator for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
If you know iEMU you must know how useful it really is and this is very popular as well because It is going to emulate the device not at API level only which means it will emulate up to kernel level itself which means dev teams to find exploits, as they will be fully in control of the virtual emulator as well which means other hackers will also be able to find the exploits much sooner.
There is No ETA on iEMU at the moment.
