  • Planetbeing Up For Challenge to Make iPhone 4 Exploit Jailbreak Happen



    Bright and early this morning, Planetbeing, of the iPhone Dev Team, enticed our imaginations and sparked our hopes with an exciting post on Twitter: a tweet that indicates that it is, indeed, possible to develop exploits that - get ready for this - can work far beyond the present days of the iOS 4 and well into the future of iPhone operating systems.

    Having the iPhone 4 bootrom makes it possible to develop exploits that are immune to firmware upgrades (unlike the Spirit family of jbs)
    One hour before the tweet that jailrbreakers are just now widely becoming aware of, Planetbeing also stated: "Yay, just managed to get this out: SHA1(iphone4-bootrom.bin)= 03203a4ebc24bd2488efdaaa19f0c9589496011f (prolly same as ipad, though)." Only a few short days ago, Nick chronicled MuscleNerd and planetbeing's announcement that Comex's Spirit userland jailbreak has been ported to work on iOS 4 and, yes, the iPhone 4.



    But it wasn't the bootrom exploit, meaning that Apple could patch it in a subsequent update. Thanks to the update today Planetbeing, we're now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Unfortunately - and, incredibly, we're already getting this question by the truckload - there is no release time as of yet. But all eyes are now on Planetbeing to see where we will go from here. Nonetheless, the first public image of Cydia running on the iPhone 4 is still enough to keep us up all night thinking about the possibilities that now shortly lie ahead.

      Has anyone had random " no sim" errors on their iPhone? I tried restore and a new sim card still happens 5-7 times a day. It's so bad I can't even put a case on the phone. Constantly reinserting the sim card

      I doubt it'll be before the 14th...remember the phone has to be jailbroken first. The bootloader has a new language and it'll take longer than usual for the unlock. Could be a few weeks or months (like with the 3G release)...but I'm hoping an unlock comes soon for all you T-mobile ppl
