Notoir iPhone hacker/expert Erica Sadun’s updated twitter with the msg ‘ip light’. Light was one of the flashlight applications in the App Store. It has been removed from App Store due to Erica hacking the brightness of the iPhone to higher level then allowed by Apple.

Not that this is a big issue, there are still a lot of other light applications available to install from the App Store or Cydia. More information will soon be available on Erica’s weblog.

What app is next?
