  • The Future of Jailbreaking: New Developments!


    Two big new developments concerning the future of jailbreaking and unlocking our iPhones have arisen recently. @Comex, the developer of the insanely-popular one-click Spirit jailbreak, has officially announced that a jailbreak for ALL iOS 4 devices has already been developed and will be made public in the very near future. As of right now, 4.0 can currently only be jailbroken by updating an already-jailbroken 3.1.2 device using PwnageTool or sn0wbreeze, so while 3G and iPod touch G2 owners can simply downgrade their devices to 3.1.2, devices that use the Apple update verification method (3G S or newer) can only downgrade with SHSHs on file, and therefore, have to have been jailbroken previously.

    iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) users must have an already jailbroken device on 3.1.2 or must downgrade to 3.1.2 with SHSHs on file with Cydia before jailbreaking up to 4.0 using PwnageTool (mac) or Snowbreeze (win). iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G (old bootrom) users can simply upgrade to 4.0 via iTunes and jailbreak with redsn0w. New bootrom iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G users can not currently jailbreak 4.0. There are guides for all the above in our guides section. Of course iPhone 4 users can not jailbreak right now.

    In addition, @MuscleNerd and @planetbeing are hard at work developing a carrier unlock for the new iPhone 4. Being in possession of the new iOS 4 jailbreak from comex, they can develop and ready an unlock before the new jailbreak is made public.

    The future of the jailbreaking scene is looking bright; be sure to thank and donate to these hard-working hackers!

      Nope u r not right ... reason for JB isn't software piracy.

      Here in Bosnia we do not have contractor for Apple soo ony way to use it is to JB and unlock it for local mobile provider !!!

      Think about what needs to happen. New iOS update needs to be released. New JB must be retested.

      It would be nice to see sooner but my bet is August (mid to late).

      Hope I am wrong.

      Yep I was just thinking the same thing....I hope not but everything seems to point in that direction unfortunately.

      Apple is not as worried about the signal issue as most of you think. I mean my god they've sold almost 2 million of the d@mn things and they're still flying out the door just as fast as they can make them.

      then why did you choose to upgrade if there was no jailbreak available? that's your problem, not the dev team's.

      the less you worry about it, the quicker it will seem to come.

      I completely agree. I would never upgrade if I depended on an unlock

      I agree with u on that because it only makes sense that they would release it after the antenna fix. I've been keeping up with MuscleNerds tweets on twitter and they are making progress with this unlock! Kudos to MuscleNerd and PlanetBeing!

      Before that day i reset network setting more than 3 times without any problem.

      My 3GS 32 GB was JB on 3.1.2 nontethered and all worked fine ( had 267 programs installed ).

      Now i am stuck on 3.1.3 and my phone have new boot rom soo i can't jailbreak 3.1.3 ( and i don't have SHSH for 3.1.2 only for 3.1.3 )

      I am willing to test all new jailbreak program ( want to be betatester for 3.1.3 and 4.0 on new bootrom 6.4 )

      _DM_
      why are you stuck on 3.1.3? Use Spirit to jailbreak.
