  • iOS 4.0.1 and iPad 3.2.1 Now Live - DO NOT UPDATE


    iOS 4.0.1 and iPad 3.2.1 have just been released! For your own good, DO NOT UPDATE!!! if you require jailbreak or unlock!

    It looks like reports are coming in that this is actually the 4.1 Beta we saw last night... not sure why it would roll out so quick, but I'm not buying it just yet. The baseband isn't even updated, so it can't be entirely 4.1b.

    BACKUP YOUR SHSH BLOBS!!!!!!!!

    Comex has confirmed there is NO baseband update in 4.0.1. You can update if you wish, but really there is no point unless you have an iPhone 4 and want these new "bigger bars". Either way, just don't do it.

    Planetbeing also recommends staying away, but if you missed your SHSH blob backup, you can do so on 4.0.1, as there is no baseband update.

      click the mounted drive and drag and drop it into applications after u unzipped it. Then open and run it from your applications folder. Otherwise the password thing will happen.

I don't know why you weren't expecting this.
      Ok fair enough, I didn't realise it was already known that there would be a 4.1 version and a small 4.01 update. Even so, doesn't the release of 4.1 to developers indicate there is another version very close? Do you see what I mean? All the time there is a version 'not far off' there will be no jailbreak released. Doesn't that seem like a clever play on Apple's part?

      I'm not grumpy about it, just stating the obvious...

      New bootrom... Not sure, someone could correct me, but can't you do spirit2pwn? I did but im lucky and on the old 3GS bootrom.

      you do realize this is just a graphical representation, right? The signal has always been the same. The update changes how bars are displayed. 4.0 didn't magically make you have a better signal.

      Ok...so I'm a little lost. Is it ok to update or not. The first recommends people to not update but later on it says if you didn't shsh blob your 4.0 firmware along with the baseband being the same, then it;s ok to update.

      So what do i do update or not. I bought my iphone 4 from a friend and I sure they never heard anything about shsh or whatever so I know my phone's shsh is not saved.

      So do i update and save my shsh then?

      Someone please please me know

      Thanks

      Yes it does indicate another version is close to release. 4.1 There is no sense releasing a userland jailbreak when this update was expected not too long ago because Apple said they were going to release an update. Even then we knew another update was coming after this one because the 4.0 release left out alot from the beta that everyone knew was missing and would be added later. The reason they didn't release is because it isn't ready yet and there is zero sense in rushing out a jailbreak that is very easily fixed. And since this is a userland jailbreak rather than a bootrom jailbreak it's much easier to patch and everyone that comes here should know that, and should avoid updating. Instead we get morons that come here, don't do research, and ask the same stupid questions over and over. I take sinister pleasure in seeing them screw themselves out of a jailbreak simply because they didn't do 5 minutes research and save themselves the grief. I never really liked GeoHot, but the past few days reading the comments on this site have convinced me that he was right to leave and that 90% of the people on this website are goddamn impatient and stupid people. I wish there was a test to sign up for this website to ward off all the morons.

      After scrolling through pages of repeated questions, countless trolls, and more repeated questions I'd thought I would come and comment. To the individual seh6183 I'd like to confront you first. Number one until you have developed and released a jailbreaking application do not tell the world it is safe to update. Granted this update has no change in Baseband. We all know and see that this is the case. However when making code secure and rewritten for optimization jailbreak techniques (not baseband hacks) can be lost or moved. This will require a few more days to fix. It is unlikely the prove to be an issue for the smart individuals at the Dev-Team but nonetheless to be on the safe side remain on 4.0. However your advice is sound if and only if a person has there SHSH blobs on file since they can downgrade if the need arises.

      I miss the good old days where power hungry teenagers (and adults) did not feel the need to have a rampage on a friendly internet forum. We are all here for the same reasons at MMi with customization at the heart of discussion. The need to troll and the inability to read is what kills forums, technology blogs, and the like.

      Good Day.

      dude you've been on a rampage for like a week now. Do you need a hug? I know that there are uninformed questions posted ad infinitum here, but every one starts somewhere. I'm sure there was a time where you may have posted something that irratated someone else. Not because you were trying to be an ***. You just didnt know the answer...I'm just sayin we can can inform newbies without getting all bent over their inquiries (gotta say zanex is working wonders for my state of mind)
