i0n1c Discourages Chris Wade Working on “iEmu”-An Open Source iOS Device Emulator!
Chris Wade (@cmwdotme) is a famous iOS hacker mostly known for his work on the first buffer overflow for the iPhone and the PSP. He has spent a lot of time working on Linux ports to obscure devices like the MSNTV and the sidekick2. Now he decided to dedicate him for developing an open source iOS device emulator “iEmu” for which he has started a project on Kicstarter where he begged for $20,000 until September 16 to continue focusing on “iEmu” for next 3 months without doing any other job.
iEmu is an emulator based on the popular open-source emulator QEMU. The project’s primary goal is to implement support for the S5L8930 chipset, which is used in the iPhone 4 and the first-generation iPad. Since the specifications for this chipset and other supporting hardware used by Apple’s devices aren’t public, supporting these devices takes some heavy reverse engineering. This takes time and dedication, which is why progress so far has been slow. My new approach is to dedicate myself completely to this project and show the world the full potential of iEmu.
Once iEmu is complete it will be possible to run it on Linux, Windows, Mac, mobile platforms such as Android, and even on iOS itself. It will act as a debugger for some, and perhaps will be a QA tool for others. It will also enable security experts to capture and analyze iOS malware in a sandboxed environment.
For collecting funds, his tweet has made its way on the twitter pages of almost all famous iPhone hackers and developers in which he requested people to help him in completing “iEmu” project within the given time frame of 03 months.
Though most of hackers encouraged him to carry out his work on “iEmu”, a well-known and high ranked hacker i0n1c criticized on the project and discouraged Chris Wade by saying that the time span of 3 months looks likely unviable.
Chpwn encourages Wade by donating $100 and hopes that he would complete the work within time and goal frame;
Here is the tweet from Chris Wade for collecting a fund of $20000 via kickstarter project to complete his work on an open source iOS device emulator “iEmu”;
Here is the tweet made by i0n1c in which he discouraged Chris Wade for his recent project “iEmu” on kickstarter;
A follower of i0n1c smells that he is feeling upset on the start of the “iEmu” project on which he responds;
Finally, he makes the way to escape by saying that the time span given to complete “iEmu” project looks very short as compared to amount of work;
We think that i0n1c really looks resentful to Chris Wade; either due to professional jealousy or he was also desirous to do some work on an iOS open source emulator but Wade picked it earlier to him, unfortunately.
However, we can only pray for a success for Wade in his “iEmu” - emulator project and request i0n1c for doing something solid instead of a broken “ELEVATOR” or just pushing out some ridiculous tweets!
