(Redirected from VROM (S5L8720))
The Samsung S5L8720 is a system-on-a-chip used in the iPod touch (2nd generation) and iPod nano (4th generation). It features a 32-bit ARM1176JZF-S processor core, along with integrated 128 MiB DRAM on the iPod touch, and 32 MiB DRAM on the iPod nano.
Bootrom Exploits[edit source]
- 0x24000 Segment Overflow - only in Bootrom 240.4 (old bootrom)
- usb_control_msg(0xA1, 1) Exploit
Note: iBoot on the S5L8720 can be downgraded, allowing any of the iBoot exploits to be used on future firmwares.
Boot Chain[edit source]
It is definitely worthy to note that the Pwnage exploit is fixed because the images are now flashed to the NOR in their encrypted IMG3 containers, and the bootrom can properly check LLB's signature. That being said, unsigned images can still be run using the 0x24000 Segment Overflow, provided the bootrom is old enough.
