  • Don't Expect a Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2


    With the release of iOS 4.1 expected in a few weeks, the Dev-Team has made an announcement informing users not to expect any new jailbreak from them for the previously released iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2. It had been warned several times, prior to the release even, to stay away from these updates, as they were only pushed to block the JailbreakMe.com exploits being used, offering nothing more to the user other than prevention method from jailbreaking.

    With Apple now shipping new orders with this newer firmware, many people wanted to know if there was something in the works, so they too could join in, but unfortunately, those who have bought stock with 4.0.2 on it will have to wait it out for iOS 4.1 to be jailbroken.

    No, there won’t be... With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”. At best, some future 4.1x FW jailbreak *may* be compatible with 4.0.2/3.2.2 (but don’t count on that).
    Sometimes you can't win them all. So if your on 4.0.2, be patient, iOS 4.1 is right around the corner. As for those of you that were quick enough to get their devices jailbroken, and saved their SHSH Blobs with Cydia, you'll be able to benefit from this exploit as long as you wish. Just make sure you check out our guides section.

    If however, you have an iPhone 3G or an iPod Touch 2G (Non-MC) , your still in luck, as well as the older iPhone models. Simply use redsn0w to jailbreak.

      Never Ever update to the newest firmware if there is no jailbreak/unlock out & available yet.

      Yes, but people's cats, friends, brothers or wives update for them. Or their iTunes does it 'automatically'.
      Some people do actually admit to just not knowing and others buy their device with 4.02 already on it or worse still have to get their device replaced and it has 4.02 on it.
      Hopefully 4.1 will be out soon.

      I'm not sure if you are serious or not, but jailbreaking typically DOES slow down iDevices.

      No it doesn't. Not by itself.

      Im close to the end of my warranty period and I just had a second thought of sending my i3GS back for warranty. I'd be damned if I get it back w 4.0.2 :< But thanks for the heads up.

      Does anyone have an answer to this. I need to restore my iphone because of some random errors I keep getting but will it restore to the version it's already on (4.0) or the newest version?

      There's absolutely no need to jailbreak: the upddate simply patches a security hole. Instead, just download "PDF Patch" from "Jay Freeman (Saurik)"

      trouble is, jailbreaking allows users to step out of the Eden that Apple gave us to play in.
      Outside the garden lie fewer protections from the consequences of being a feeping idjit.

      If I read paganizonda correctly, I think he or she is asking that Apple build a new OS release so clever and subtle,
      that users are kept coddled and unable to mess and bollox up their iOS system with poorly built software
      and poorly thought out personal choices, even after jailbreaking.

      Me? I just want a pony.

      Edit:
      Per your post on the other thread,
      (3GS, new bootrom, 4.0.0, 4.0.1 SHSH)

      'Yes you can'
