  • 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.

      that makes no sense considering u can actually switch back and forth between apps.

      GO Planetbeing!
      I miss MyWi, My3G, iFile, SDM and Infinidock so much :'(
      I hope facetime over 3G is as simple as using 3G unrestrictor or My3G. That will be sweet
      720p direct YouTube uploads would be a welcome mod too

      Cool news. Many thanks for the work they do! I'm mostly missing lockinfo. Having to actually unlock the phone to see emails is terrible. LoL.

      new baseband is already unlocked.
      Ultra has already been updated last week.

      someone correct me if Im mistaken but the only thing holding the unlock back is the ability to Jailbreak Iphone4

      Irealsms, lockinfo, sbsettings, ifile are by far my most missed features!

      However, I'm more anxious to get it and delete all the language packs and the unnecessary launch daemons, the phone will freaking fly after that!

      Okay Dev Team, an ideal release date would be July 4th, independence from Apple day!! I'm not even American, but for one day, I will!

      @carrbon - the unlock update from last week is only for 3GS and earlier. The i4 has entirely new coding (Paul or Cody I think did a piece on it on the front page last week).
