  • iPhone Dev Team Already at Work on Verizon iPhone Jailbreak


    As many of us continue to wait for a stable release of an untethered jailbreak for current generation iPhones, iPods, and iPads on firmware 4.2.1, the iPhone Dev Team has announced that they are already at work on a jailbreak for the Verizon iPhone.

    The team has been working on a jailbreak for firmware 4.2.5 (first seen on the Verizon iPhone 4) and 4.3 beta, which was just released to developers by Apple on Wedenesday. However, Dev Team member MuscleNerd has posted on his twitter that nothing will be released until after the current firmwares are out of beta, simply because "Most people can't take advantage of betas." We also suspect that it has something to do with the fact that they want to be extremely careful about the exploits they find, so that Apple will not patch them up before the update is released.

    I'm sure the moment Verizon customers get their hands on the iPhone, there will be plenty of people chomping at the bit to get their brand new phone's jailbroken, so it is great news that initial progress is already being made, even before anyone's gotten their hands on one.

    As reported earlier, MuscleNerd seems like a pretty busy guy these days, as he recently tweeted his progress on an unlock for the iphone 4. So, the JB and unlock community will continue to play the waiting game, while the Dev Team works their magic once again. We'll keep you posted as things continue to pan out.

      This sure is taking a long time for an untethered jb for the new models. Maybe if they concentrated on the jb more then this senseless back an forth drama that it would of been done a while ago.

      Why can't they just copy the firmware/baseband of iPhones that are sold unlocked?

      Because that's not how they are unlocked. Factory unlocked phones have the exact same baseband and firmware as locked ones.

      its a good idea working on the verison iPhone 4, but dude start on the IOS 4.2.1 firmware first make a working jailbreak so that everybody who accidentally updated (or were promised by apple that upgrading would fix their problems) could have their nice x-mas presents jailbroken.

      I'm not a developer or expert on this, but I think Dev-Team should worry more about an untethered jail break than worrying about being on top of every update. As it stands now, they've been working on every update since 4.2 but still haven't finished one of them.

      It's not any better on the Droid side of things. New devices with Android ship out with eFuse chip which prevents changing the bootloader.

      Maybe I should just get a Nokia N8 lol.

      Post your question in a correct area and you will find better help. May I suggest the general iPhone chat or the jailbreaking section. This is just a news post.

      No your not missing anything, but redsn0w is in the beta stages and needs more work on it so it doesn't really count at the moment.

      I hope they can unlock baseband 5.15.04 for my iphone 3g. Cuz its been a while already or hopefully the new firmawares are faster cuz 4.0 and 4.2 make it slow i think it sucks. 4.1 is pretty good though

      Best yet. Save as much money as you can and buy a factory unlocked iPhone that's not from the states.
