  • Apple May Be Waiting For iPhone 4 Jailbreak to Release iOS 4 Software Update


    The chatter from Apple Store sources maintains that if the release of iOS 4.0.1 is delayed, the culprit may be Apple's desire to wait until the iPhone 4 jailbreak is first released. When Apple recently announced a forthcoming firmware update, there was nothing firm about its release date. "A few weeks" is what we were told.

    Well, it could just be that Apple has other objectives beyond correcting those nagging antenna and signal display issues. As with previous attempts by Apple to block exploits used to jailbreak, there is good reason to believe that Apple is endeavoring as we speak to roll out a patch for the hole used to jailbreak iOS 4. Of course, if we go down this road and wonder what else Apple could be waiting for, it's a no-brainer that Apple is on pins and needles waiting for the iPhone Dev Team's jailbreak for iPhone 4, which already exists and was proudly put on display recently much to our prompt salivating.

    While there are sources clamoring about Apple's desire to patch the jailbreak before releasing iOS 4.0.1, it isn't clear how long Apple is willing to put off the release of the firmware update to achieve this "bonus goal." It's certainly not difficult to imagine having this objective in mind, but the longer the company waits to roll out the update, the more frustrated and angry current and prospective iPhone 4 buyers will grow - especially those convinced that a hardware problem can't be corrected with a software update.

      If Steve Jobs knows anything then he knows that many people are stupid enough to upgrade their firmware on a jailbroken iDevice without even thinking. Apple won't wait to fix a number of problems on its newest product simply to play games with the jailbreak community. They will release an "update" that fixes about three issues (like 3.1.3) after the iPhone 4 jailbreak has been released.

      Interesting if true. But I doubt the 4.0.1 update will be anything big worth patching for.

      Jailbreakers aren't dumb, they simply won't update to retain the jailbreak.

      You hit it on the nail, apple is way ovewhelmed with calls about antena, proximity sensor and just how unhappy ppl with the new iphone4 that they just working overtime to pump out that fix for signal so they can avoid class action against apple so i dont think apple worried about jb at all

      Even if Dev Team drops a jailbreak, Apple would then have to patch it and that would take longer! And this "A few weeks" business...your just paranoid! They are trying to gain control of a much bigger issue and make sure that it will be resolved. Plus there really hasn't been much speak of any jailbreak. Unless I've been missing something. Quit creating "news"...got something to say...start a blog.
      You have been missing a lot. This cat and mouse has been going on for a couple of years now...
      Not to mention the news all over the web and tv about the JB for 4.


      And the score is:
      Dev team 4 Apple 0

      Not 100% accurate. they have been doing this with every update since the iPhone was launched. Oh and as for the employees fixing the signal bars...people they are not the same coders that work on security.

      If you don't mind waiting until 2011 for them to "perfect" every little thing sure, but I'd rather have a 99% good enough iPhone 4 today and update along the way.

      There is zero reason why the dev teams cant wait apple out - they have no reason to jump first - apple have millions of reasons to move quicker.

      apple is stupid if they wait for dev team thats just sooo dumb

      dev team is not a big company or something

      and apple is company cant just wait for them soo this news might not be true

      but again apple you need to admit that everytime u come with new idea of blocking jb dev team just knocks you down soo easily
