  • 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!

      Does anyone know if it is true that Apple & AT&T changed the size of the SIM Card on the new IOS 4 iPhones so that one cannot use a different SIM Card from another carrier?

      Personally I love it. It's a major step up from the 3GS. As far as reception goes, sure te bars drop if I hold it but I haven't dropped a call and my data speeds are faster. I have a case now so I have zero reception problems. Only other problem I had was the proximity sensor not working. I did a restore as new phone and fixed that tho.

      And yes I need the jailbreak. Phone is actually quite boring without it.

      Um, I gotta say... idiot, yes. But his spelling is actually correct... you're is the abbreviation for "you are", and in this case, that would be incorrect grammar.

      And since were talking about my enormous e-penis... its bigger than yours because I have been a member here for 2 years, not 2 days like yourself. My number of posts & thanks have absolutely nothing to do with anything... aside from my being a supportive, helpful, and constructive member of this online community.
      All you've contributed to MMI so far is insults and moronic babble.

      And that's all I have to say about that. -Forrest Gump

      Yes, it uses a micro-SIM, so it cannot be swapped into an older iPhone, or vise-versa. This is what had me reluctant to actually get it, I found out when I asked the sales person at AT&T to borrow a SIM eject tool so I could put the new SIM in my 3GS. But after standing in that 2 hour line....

      I am of the opinion that any new version of an existing product should be AT LEAST as good as the previous, and this thing just isn't!! And this is aside from the fact that it doesn't do half of what I need it to do, without a jailbreak.
      So, if a jailbreak is not released by the 16th (regardless of whether Apple releases their update) this 4 is going back to AT&T and i'm going to kill that contract extension I signed.

      I suppose i'll just go back to my 3GS which has the old bootrom, is blackra1ned 3.1.2, has SHSH's on file, and does all the stuff I need it to do.... except for the ability to use this stupidazz new micro SIM!!
      I went to my local cell phone repair (CPR) shop and the guy had that micro sim hole puncher. He punched out the sim on my old 3GS and wife's 3G for nothing. It took about 2 minutes of filing with a sharp knife to get the micro sim to snap snuggly in place. Now I'm back to my jail broken 3GS awaiting for the 4 jb to be released. Non jailbroken phones just simply suck. I can't believe I lasted 2 whole weeks with the 4. WiFi only facetime is just a big freakin tease.

      If you read thoroughly, you will see that he used your twice; once correctly and then once incorrectly. Good try though, lets keep those quality posts coming!

      Word is that Comex is on vacation until early Aug. So it looks like we won't hear anything until then. People are also saying that he might wait until 4.1 is rolled out to release his JB. Sucks for all 3GS users w/ new bootroms b/c they might have to wait until Sep/Oct for a JB.

      I know, awesome. Oh well! I'm getting used to not having it. Think of all of those app devs not making any money due to this wait. Ouch!

      Well he had a couple of iPhone related tweets today so we'll see.

      @mj0528 - Those app devs are still making money off of the multitude of 2G, 3G, and 3GS owners.

      Well, Comex confirmed that he's not on vacation and possibly working on the JB. Poor Comex having to deal with all the pressure now that he's the last hope for the JB community.
