  • Dev Team Update - Unlock, Apple TV, Pwnage


    MuscleNerd shot out a few Tweets this morning letting folks know the status on various aspects of jailbreakland. I'll rehash the points:
    • There is an unlock on the horizon for both new jailbreakers and old, possibly not released until 4.2 though.
    • A new Pwnage Tool should be out by "Funday/Sunday" with support for the Apple TV 2G (the recent release), although most apps won't work yet.

    Developers will have to begin working on creating new apps/tweaks for Apple TV, and updating their current apps to support Apple TV if it makes sense per package. The Apple TV jailbreak situation is a new frontier here - it's not a touch screen device, so the entire JB experience may have to be starting fresh at least from a UI standpoint. Exciting.

      Sigh..... I was really hoping to get this upgrade started already. I'm not going to upgrade until pwnage tool comes out. Oh well, I'll just keep waiting.

      It's great to see there's already another unlock hole on the horizon. Shame though that it will be spent on this generation rather than the next

      Is there anything worth a crap to go from 4.0 to 4.1? I for one don't think so. Besides the fact that 4.0.1 actually made me get no service in areas where I previously got service on 4.0. So 4.1 will have the same service issuse i had in 4.0.1 Thank god for shsh backups!!

      @x2dope If you don't want to fix your proxmity sensor, HDR photos or Game Center then no, I guess there is no reason to goto 4.1??????

      @jabij1 Yes, but sounds like you'll have to wait til firmware 4.2. That shouldn't be too long. I'd say before 2011?

      Elle oh elle. Wasn't it about 2 months between 4.0 and 4.1? 2011? Really?

      Edit: *facepalm* We're in 2010 aren't we? LOL my bad. Yeah before the end of this year sounds about right. Let's hope next month.

      @trigun989 the idea of the jailbreak if for apps and modifying your product, unlocking is just an extra. Without a jailbreak they wouldn't be able to develop a unlock. However in the UK you can pay 15 to get it unlocked by an official carrier.

      I have no idea. It's just a guess. But we're almost half way through October so 2011 is only 2 1/2 months away. Also, once 4.2 is out you gotta think it will be at least a week or two before jailbreak and unlock released. Although since they are sitting on SHatter hole I bet it won't be much longer than that

      @NessLookAlike Ahh, why you need to unlock your iPad?? You mean jailbreak?

      iPads already come unlocked. If you meant jailbreak then you're out of luck. Jailbreaks are NEVER officially released to work on BETA firmwares b/c it gives Apple the chance to patch the jailbreak before the final release.

      Do any of the news stories say that greenpois0n or limera1n will jailbreak iPad 4.2 beta?

      *EDIT*

      And Poseidon is right, why make a JB for beta stage software when the whole point of a beta is to find problems and fix them.

      How about all the people who do not need the unlock. It's not all about you.
