  • 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!

      I don't know. I'm not sure who edited my post or why...all I know is that I can't jailbreak my sister's old bootrom 3G S on 4.0 with no SHSHs on file.

      We don't talk about piracy or warez here. I suggest you at least edit your post before it gets edited by a moderator.

      Yeah. I sold my old 3GS to my friend, who is on T-mobile. Right now she's just using it as an iPod Touch. She's waiting on me to contact her the moment the jailbreak is released.

      I stupidly upgraded to 4.0 thinking a jailbreak would be as simple as back in the day when I was jailbreaking my first iPhone 1st gen. Since I never jailbroke my 3GS, I had no idea it's all SHSH blobs and bootroms and all this crazy talk.

      Waiting patiently. Love this communities passion though!

      I'm getting stressed out about all this... I have the new iPhone4 and a 3gS that is jailbroken with 3.1.2, and thanks to this stupid new micro SIM, I cant swap the SIM card around anymore. I am obsessively checking in here every hour hoping for a jailbreak to be released... but i'm not sure WHY i'm so hell bent about it! Many of my favorite JB goodies I use wont work with 4.0 yet anyway... FCSB, Infinidock, AutoSilent etc.

      Just getting my theme, Notifier, iRealSMS and LockInfo back would make me happy for now!! And I will absolutely donate generously to the 1st dev to release a working JB for the iPhone4, but not a dime until its released!

      With regard to the 4.0 - 4.0.1 waiting game nonsense... I for one DONT have the "death grip" problem, and most who do, probably have a bumper of some kind by now. I believe most people would sacrifice the 4.0.1 update to have a jailbreak NOW!

      People in here saying release now and find another JB when apple updates to 4.0.1 talk as though JBs are an easy thing to find. They're not and they're getting harder. This can't become a game of cat and mouse, apple gave publicly stated they will update firmware to solve a recognised problem. With all the bad publicity already they wouldn't dare wait too long before doing that. So of course the devs should hold off until that new 4.0.1 is released. Also, remember that most of the world don't yet have the option of iphone4, and the dev team are all around the world. I predict that the updated firmware will cone out to coincide with the big international release (this month????) and the JB to follow shortly after.

      SnowBreeze 1.7 is a pile of ****. Why dont people use spirit to jailbreak 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 old and new bootrom on the 3gs? Is SnowBreeze 1.7 to unlock your iphone?
    1. sergioakakobe's Avatar
      sergioakakobe -
      Because Maybe some people want to jailbreak iOS4 instead of 3.1.3 and Spirit can Only Jailbreak 3.1.3 ........SO FAR!!

      Looks like it is a tethered JB. I wonder how hard it would be to go from a SnowBreeze Tethered JB to an untethered JB once it is released.

      yeah I feel like an idiot! BUT the new jailbreak is "right around the corner" and "coming soon" and whatever else they can say to hype it up! I remember when geohot just came out of the blue and released his jailbreak because the dev team was holding off because a new update was coming out. Thank god for geohot then and we need him now. If he dropped a jailbreak today everyone elses would come out tomorrow claiming theirs is "better" and the waiting game would be over. Someone needs to release this and stop playing games!
