  • Spirit Exploit Ported for iOS 4 and iPhone 4 : Coming Soon!


    Our good friends, MuscleNerd and planetbeing, have announced that Comex's Spirit userland jailbreak has been ported to work on iOS 4 and even the iPhone 4!

    Before you go asking like crazy, I'll tell you now... There is still no release date, but rather, just great news that our next Jailbreak tool is right around the corner. The image above that you see is high-resolution, at the native iPhone 4 resolution, just a bit of extra proof that it's working. Go ahead, click the image and see it in it's full glory.

    Stay tuned folks, our next Jailbreak tool will arrive shortly.

    NOTE: This is not the bootrom exploit, but rather another userland jailbreak, which means Apple could patch it in the next update, so make sure you back up your blobs once your jailbroken.

    Tweet from MuscleNerd:

    Congrats to @comex for another userland JB Twitpic - Share photos on Twitter <Ė hi-res Cydia via @planetbeing & @chpwn iPhone4s



    Tweet from PlanetBeing:

    Think Iím the first one I know about to get a root shell (and SSH) on iPhone 4, using poor @comexís code (since he has no iPhone 4).



    on another note however,

      Thanks to my trusty xacto knife, today I figured out a way to get my iPhone4 micro-SIM into my 3GS, so at least my number is back on a jailbroken phone until these guys release the new spirit jailbreak for iPhone4.

      But I really don't understand the point of the waiting game... Hasn't Apple always patched the old exploits in the new updates? Why is this different from the past? If we could jailbreak now, and we had to wait for a new 4.0.1 jailbreak before upgrading... at least we'd have a jailbroken phone while we waited!!!

      This cat and mouse game is doing nothing more than forcing 10's of thousands of jailbreakers to be stuck with lame stock phones, stalling development of existing apps to be used with iPhone4, AND killing revenue for dev's who are selling apps on Rock & Cydia!!

      I'll bet that if we could jailbreak the iPhone4 today, by tomorrow, a dozen dev's would release fixes for the "death grip" (a problem I don't even have) AND the proximity sensor issues!!

      Anyway, i'm waiting for Spirit... even if GeoTool DOES release his, i'm not using it, and he wont be getting the $50 donation that's standing by in my PayPal account.

      The difference now is that we know the update is definitely coming, and coming soon. Also many people around the world still don't have 4. Why would the dev team waste an exploit for a small number ofpeople for just a couple of weeks. Makes no sense. And everyone seems to think that new exploits just pop out each time apple plugs one. If I remember correctly, they waited last year until international release. I'm sure (and I hope) they do that again this time around
      plus, this new update is not really "optional" everyone with 4 will want/ need it to see of it improves antenna issues. It's different to say going from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3 just for supposed battery fixes etc. Those are optional and most people with a Jb avoid them until it's shown they are still vulnerable. This is unlkie that. Imagine what would happen if they released now and in two weeks time everyone was demanding a new exploit for 4.0.1!

      Yes, even geniuses can be tool's... His work is amazing, and I would never take that away from him. Afterall, i'm typing this on a blackra1ned iPhone 3GS! But aside from all that, anyone who behaves the way he has, especially lately, would be (and has been) labeled "a tool" by a heluva lot more people than just me!

      I agree, everyone with an iPhone4 will need that update, but "soon" is as non-specific as Apple has been about this alleged update! Meanwhile, Cydia & Rock app devs are paralyzed and starving!

      By the time the iPhone4 drops worldwide, that update AND the jailbreak will be out! My point is, I think people will wait more patiently for the 4.0.1 jailbreak if their phone is already jailbroken.
      Not to mention the crapload of people who are just trying to jailbreak their 3GS with 4.0, who have no need for an update that is specific only to the iPhone4!

      I think its also important to point out that I DESPISE Apple and everything they do and stand for, and Steve Job's is the LORD of all tools!! The ONLY thing that keeps an iPhone in my pocket is what it CAN do, once its jailbroken! I have spent a small fortune on Cydia apps, and I have only purchased ONE App Store app EVER... SlingPlayer Mobile, and Dish Network reimbursed me for it!

      What has he done that is so toolish?

      He showed he can jailbreak the iPhone 4 AFTER Comex already announced he will release a jailbreak for it. How does that make him a tool?

      If you paid attention to Apple's press release regarding the signal issue, the mistake has been present since the original iPhone was released in 2007 so yes, this update will help 3GS owners too, even 3G owners!

      Why would they jailbreak 4.0 when the update is already announced? That's a waste of a perfectly good exploit.

      Why did you think it's important to point out that you despise Apple and everything they do and stand for?

      ^^ He is tired of everyone asking him about releasing a J/B, but then he shows everyone that he has J/B an iphone 4, then says he may not release it.

      And thats what he did that was "toolish". Thus...he is a Tool.

      DevTeam Rocks!

      How is that toolish?

      Comex has already publicly announced that he will be releasing a jailbreak for the iPhone 4. If that's already public knowledge then I don't see how Geohot's blog post was toolish at all. You may have an argument if he was the first person to show evidence of jailbreaking it but that is not the case.

      As I said before, perhaps in another thread, this would be like a child yelling at his mother to take him to go and get pizza for dinner even though they both know the father is already on his way home with a pizza to eat.

      Via musclenerd's twitter:

      "Full i4 bars with custom "steve" background task spitting out "One more thing" Twitpic - Share photos on Twitter - all pieces in place"

      And then following that (a response to someone asking what that means)

      "It means the "next step" demoed in http://is.gd/doLnz has been reached, so now there's just 1 final step "

      To me it has nothing to do with who announced what first. Point is, dont complain about "everyone" asking you for a jailbreak, and your tired of people asking you, but then turn around and say you have a new J/B. Thats why hes a Tool. Get it?

      No, I don't get it. Everyone already knows there is a forthcoming jailbreak from Comex. Why bother and nag Geohot for a jailbreak if there already is one on the way?

      ^^ Awww just forget it. If you dont get what i said in my last 2 post i dont know how to explain it anymore. I dont care if he ever releases it. I have never used any of his stuff. Besides really not important, hes a Tool either way.

      GeoHot doesn't even have a jailbreak so he's not a tool. He's a tease with no product

      Nothing new to discuss at this juncture. PB's just busy cleaning up and packaging the unlock and readying it for when Comex releases the jailbreak.

      Anyone else see Comex's latest tweet? He's not waiting for 4.1 JAILBREAK soon

      I just checked Twitter and what I read made me so excited. I suspected that Comex wouldn't wait as there would most likely be new exploits in 4.1 as a result of the new features. 4.1 is probably a ways off anyway.
