  • PwnageTool To Jailbreak All Future Firmwares on A4 iDevices


    MuscleNerd, a developer from the Dev-Team, has hinted at the possibility of PwnageTool being able to provide untethered jailbroken firmware creation for ALL future firmware updates on devices that use the A4 chip (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad).

    "Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares " says MuscleNerd via twitter. The announcement gives a bit more confidence to jailbreakers who are afraid of being left out when future updates come, like iOS 4.2 for example. This one being a major update for the iPad users, and losing their jailbreaks could be disappointing if there was no way to jailbreak.

    While Limera1n and Greenpois0n are also considered "exploits for life" for the A4, it is not likely that they would be untethered tools in the future, once Apple patches the exiting tools currently used. PwnageTool on the otherhand, would be able to provide these untethered jailbroken firmwares even after Apple patches the current holes that currently provide us an untethered jb. This once again, is what iPad and iPhone 4 users want to hear, as this means you'll be able to jailbreak, untethered, for "life".

    If this is the case, we may see PwnageTool once again being the main tool for Jailbreaking your iDevices, as we all know, a tethered JB is no fun at all.

    Tomorrow will be the official release, so keep your eyes peeled for Sunday Funday!

      Get a Mac and use the Windows version in BootCamp and everything'll be aright.

      No need to spend your money when you have a capable computer. Run vm as I do! You can find custom vmware already built one's online.

      For future versions of iOS, limera1n and greenpois0n will not be untethered jailbreaks on their own. In order for either of them to be untethered in the future they will either need to be enhanced to be more powerful exploits (unlikely, due to the difficulty), OR they will need to be coupled with a new userland jailbreak like they are now.

      Damn you beat me to it!
      And I reckon they'll release the SHAtter version of greenpois0n for 4.2, I don't see why not (unless they can find another un-tether xploit to use instead..

      Hopefully they won't release SHAtter when 4.2 drops next month. I have a feeling that it will not be released until Apple does make the changes to the bootrom to patch limera1n's exploit. When that happens is uncertain, but Apple does seem to roll out hardware fixes/patches faster than most would expect.

      Also, considering how sick Comex is when it comes to finding userland jailbreaks, I have a feeling the kid has a few more tricks in his bag to hold us over until SHAtter is finally used.

      I would assume a Mac version would come first.
