  • 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 think the guy was not happy bcos the dev team called him uneducated.

      I thought we all knew this already? It's like the 8th time we've said "its coming".

      Yes we know it's in development.... Lol they keep reminding us.

      I think apple knows they'll wait for an update so apple will stall and it'll be a waiting game. Ah what do I know. Anyways, donated now too and can't wait for the i4 jb!

      What did I miss? Comex has said nothing about a release date! If he holds onto it until Aple releases their "bar fix" firmware well that could be a month from now.

      It just seems the article can be a little misleading. No one knows when Comex is releasing so I don't know how you can write "very near future"

      I hope they do hold it till the update is released, and it will give everyone else time to buy their ip4.

      I hope they wait. No sense in burning a bridge when we know Apple has to patch a HUGE bug asap.
