Dev Team on iPhone Infused
The hacking subscription site iPhone Infused is a scam, charges one of the lead members of the iPhone Dev Team, creators of the free PwnageTool. The member claims that Infused's website directly borrows a number of images of iPhone 2.0 firmware posted earlier at hackint0sh, to the extent that the phone is recognizable as his own, 4GB development model.
The developer also notes that a video used by Infused (embedded below) is in fact just a re-edited version of one he recorded, only properly mirrored and with text by Infused superimposed. Part of the evidence is said to be the pen in the clips, which the Dev Team member claims is his and sits in the same position in both circumstances. A different version of the video was legitimately offered to Gizmodo.
iPhone Infused, in exchange for a $40 fee, promises to offer customers a steady stream of jailbreaking and unlocking methods for iPhones. Critics have accused the site, however, of selling files and information that were written by others, and can be downloaded elsewhere at no cost.
