  • Musclenerd Reveals iPhone OS 4.0 Jailbreak

    These days, the jailbreaks are coming fast and furious.

    The iPhone dev has an exploit that apparently works like a charm for iPhone OS 4.0. Musclenerd (of iPhone Dev Team) has just released a new YouTube video revealing a jailbroken iPhone OS 4.0 with VNC server App. Unfortunately, the vid is brief and reveals nothing about the actual jailbreak. Obviously, we can only assess that the iPhone OS 4.0 is jailbroken because the VNC server doesn't come with stock iPhone 04 4.0 firmware.


    Sadly, just as we have to wait for the new iPhone hardware, the iPhone Dev Team similarly won't reveal the iPhone OS 4.0 Jailbreak solution until Apple rolls out the new iPhone later this summer.

    If it seems that new Apple releases are getting hacked faster and faster, you would be right. On April 4th, the day after the iPad's release, MMI reported that MuscleNerd had already gained root access to the iPad using using Spirit, comex's jailbreak solution. He was able to install non-approved applications, not mentioned run them simultaneously - kind of like the multitasking capabilities that Apple has now officially sanctioned.

    Apple will release (the jailbreakable) iPhone OS 4 this summer for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. For iPad owners, however, the OS get the red carpet roll out until this fall. But the excitement surrounding the jailbreak potential of the OS is, indeed, palpable within the jailbreak community. And, consequently, it will be an exciting year for us all.

      No one made them buy a phone that couldn't be jailbroken, there's always a choice

Then it just died on me. Had no choice but to get a replacement. Wouldn't you know 3.1.3. If the jailbreak isn't released soon it's so long iPhone. I've paid a lot for apps that I can't use now.
      So it's good news that 4.0 can be jailbroken but release it for 3.1.3 already. I'm sure I'm not the only person that had to get a replacement.
      I agree, I'm so tempted to make the switch to the nexus because I will not wait 2-3 months thats for sure.

      If you've got battery problems, then it can be fixed with 3.1.2 and todays jb's.
      the only point of 3.1.3 was some 3gs users have problems with their battery level display being inacurate. thats what i meant.

      Anyone who has a CarPC can control their iPhone through VNC. Just like having a CARiPhone... Now I wish they made an affordable 7" lcd with capacitive touch for my car...

      Is this true if i update to beta 4.0 today, and when full version exit in summer i will unable to do jailbreak?

      thats cool in all but, i don't quite understand how they are jailbreaking 0S beta 4.0 when we still have ppl thats can't have there 3GS or 3rd Gen iPod Touch jailbroken on 3.1.3. Don't get me wrong I love the fact that they found the loop but one its on the old device, and more likely when the new device comes out its gonna have some type of code blocking that jailbreak......Not saying the they will not stop us from jailbreaking but will take a while..But as I said above, how about fixing or finding a solution to 3.1.3 to the ones that are unfortunate...

      4.0 for 3G is useless. Is there a way to get 3GS OS on 3G?
