    Hacking without jailbreak

    Hi,
    I need to access to the mail folders inside an Iphone.... but without I want to do that without jailbreaking it. I could use both Mac, PC or Linux computers to do that (and till now just have seen a lot of folders on the Ipad but I think mails are in a protected one)... Some ideas to do that or is it impossible now

    Thanks

    I'm afraid this is not possible...


    Apple took the decision to 'sandbox' the programs (apps) in the iPad. This means that apps have only a very limited ability to interact - and this interaction is *absolutely* controlled by the operating system (iOS). So if you tried to write a 'virus' program for the iPad it would have no effect, because it couldn't interact with any other program or the operating system.

    That, inevitably, has other consequences and places restrictions on what programs can do. In Windows, for example, applications (programs) can interact and this can be very useful. So some (clever) programmers found a way to 'jail break' the iPad and remove this restriction (effectively 'jailbreaking' means your iPad can 'run' non-Apple approved apps from the Cydia website, where they make such non-approved apps available). They can now run 'unauthorised' apps on the iPad that 'take advantage' of the removal of this restriction. The downside - technically a 'jail broken' iPad could be vunerable to viruses.

    But don't worry - a 'regular' (non jail broken) iPad is not vunerable to any 'viruses' that a deviant programmer might write to 'infect' a jail broken iPad. So your IT manager need have no worries - if your iPads are not 'jailbroken' they are absolutely safe from viruses.

    Basically, if you accept the restrictions that Apple place on your iPad and don't jail break, you're completely safe - a virus cannot 'infect' you.

    Additionally, any 'app' that a normal (non-jail broken) iPad can download will have been thoroughly checked and approved by Apple, so could not contain any malevolent code...

    OK - I'll get 'hacked' by the iPad 'jail breakers' - sorry for the 'pun' but, basically, you're safe.

    Apple have a number of 'white papers' and other documents on their web site that address this issue if you'd like the links...

    Thanks for this reply...

    Reason while I need to access to this mail files were not to write viruses, but on forensic works you may not modify any data on any pieces (sure I'll be fired if someone read this ).

    In this case I may not apply a jailbreak on this Ipad... But more looking for an app giving reading access would be enough. Some apps like Idos - as I read -were available from the appstore but disappear quickly ! That's why I need to know if legal apps exist - just in reading mode.
