Bringing back Tor on the iPhone - take 2

Hash: SHA1

Hi all,
long time ago someone ported Tor and privoxy over to the iphone
platform, together with an iTor.app application:
Unfortunately looks like everything disappeared, does anyone still have
any pointers to that project?
In the meanwhile, I was able to build libevent, tor and polipo using the
 linux cross toolchain for iphone os 3.1.2 (that's all I got) against a
local cydia telesophoreo checkout. The result looks promising, I was
able to surf with safari proxied through local polipo:
I'm going to do some more tests before pubblishing anything, probably
I'll ask for inclusion in telesophoreo or I'll host them on
slackware.it, anyway I got a couple of marks:
1) strictly related to tor: I build the latest stable release *WITHOUT*
the --enable-iphone switch. As I can understand from the post linked
above, that option will jusr add some compiler flags needed only by
older version of the iphone toolchain/firmware and I think that probably
they could be removed as no longer necessary. Does anyone know something
more on that patch?
2) looks like that repositories for jailbroken phones build stuff with
iphone os 2.0 toolchains, I don't know if my debs will ever work with
older firmwares: they worked for me (so far), YMMV ;-)
3) I have a couple of ideas for a .app that will behave like a smaller
vidalia for the iphone, let's see what I can get out but do not hold
your breath: I have a toolchain but I still know too less on building
Obj-C UI with it so it may take a while :D

That's all for now, I'll hope to post something more interesting soon!
