  • Chronic Dev Team Confirms Untethered 4.2.1 Jailbreak


    It looks like the Chronic Dev Team has confirmed an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1. This comes as great news to many current-generation iOS device owners who are waiting patiently for an untethered jailbreak that does not require saved SHSH blobs and the ISPW file for iOS 4.2 beta 3, the latter of which is only available to developers. They've just a released a video showing off an iPhone 4 restarting, and then launching Cydia.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5qNray7FHU[/ame]


    The release comes after a public dispute between @p0sixninja, one of the creators of this jailbreak along with @0naj and @pod2g, and @MuscleNerd. @MuscleNerd had challenged @p0sixninja to "come up with [a jailbreak] in say, 10 or 20 days," and it looks like he's delivered in even less time with that. Now, I certainly don't want to put myself in the middle of that argument, and I don't think it's good to have the people that so many people in the jailbreak community (including myself) rely on fighting, but regardless, it's very exciting that their appears to be a major breakthrough for an untethered jailbreak.

    The demonstration video says to keep checking GreenPois0n.com for an update. I'm sure we'll hear more about this very soon. To all of those waiting for untethered freedom, it appears that the wait should soon be over. It seems like the only issue left is that the wi-fi logo does not show up, but I for one have faith they'll get it worked out quickly.

    Update: It looks like MuscleNerd has congratulated the Chronic Dev Team. Hopefully it means everyone's getting along a bit better.

      What have they been doing? What have you been doing? Do they have jobs? Families? Lives? Maybe they are doing those things, and making free jailbreaks for a bunch of people they don't know comes after everything else. Or maybe you whining, entitled children think they should be locked in a room making free software for you to play with. It's a bit scary when I see posters like this. Did your parents give you everything you wanted because you were crying and demanding whatever shiny new thing you saw and desired, and you think the world should, too? Maybe, after you leave middle school, you will grow up. (Yes, I know that many of these posters are young "adults," but it unnerves me to think that they actually aren't sentient and empathetic enough to understand that others' needs may come before their desire for toys.)

      Oh, and I totally agree with Neonsector, above, that if anything was "wrong" with the jailbreak, you'd be whining about how it messed up your phone and why wasn't it perfect before they released it. You are the same people who push the button when iTunes asks if you want to update your OS, and then post here freaking out about how, now, your phone is no longer jailbroken.

      Sorry, but my curmudgeon button was certainly pushed by many of the people posting on this thread.

      Oh, yeah, and when it the unlock gonna happen? GAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

      Thanx for this, that's exactly what I think EVERY TIME there's something new. Instead of being appreciative and thankful it's always whining!.

      Having a life has nothing to do with it. When a person donates close to 200 bucks everytime a new jb comes out like me I expect to have a new one when the next firmware comes out. Idc who has a life. If you know what your doin in your spare time it should be done. Same thing with video games. I still work hard and when I come home **** on people so bad they tell me to get a life. Um I have a wife a daughter and a great job. Now to add I have a unjailbroken iPhone.

      Lucky for u that you have 200 dollars to spend, not everybody does. I'm talking about all the ppl that DON't pay a thing and complain all the time.now THOSE should get a life OR try it themselves!.

      I think this is easily resolved. Simply stop all the tidbit announcements and hints at something coming.

      Announce when you have a full product ready to go.

      If you release information in small chucks along the way, then be prepared for folks posting impatient replys.

      What if you took your hard-earned $210 and put it down on a item (car, suit, shoes, whatever) which has to be custom built. You're gonna have to wait for it to be completed. Waiting is part of the process. If you can't stand waiting for the custom item to be built, buy an off-the-rack item and have it that day.

      Your donation does NOT entitle you to instant gratification, UNLESS you have a contract with someone telling you that your donation equals instant delivery upon release of a new firmware.

      Do you have a contract or a signed statement from anyone who is making jailbreaking tools telling you that you get a new jailbreak as soon as a new firmware is released?

      No, I didn't think so.

      P.S. How about watching the language here? You aren't hanging out with your friends, this is a public forum. Thanks.

      Help me decide folks! I JB'd by old 3G on 4.1 mainly because the phone itself was slow, so I added some tweaks to it. BUT, the IP4 that I upgraded to now is fast and does everything that I want however - I do miss BITESMS!! Should I JB my phone whenever the 4.2.1. JB comes out so I can use BiteSMS again?

      wasn't this confirmed AGES AGO?
      they said they'd release it by the end of Christmas weekend, didn't they?
      they were beta testing for it, weren't they?
      4.2 has been out for ages hasn't it?
      the wi-fi logo doesn't show up, surely that's not good enough?
      instead of programming, all this time, they've just been having stupid sissy arguments on twitter like 8 year olds, whilst getting absolutely ****-all done, haven't they?

      Can the JBer's agree please this is annoying, either the world gets a JB for 4.2 untethered or not, but to tease us is cruel.

      Maybe Geohot will just release a JB for real and put this crap to an end.

      That monte jailbreak has been out for awhile now in beta. I was able to untether my iPhone 4 on 4.2.1 weeks ago. That method uses a way for people to keep using 4.1 or 4.2b3 SHSH in order to be untethered on 4.2.1 and in theory for future firmwares as well. However that cannot help everybody as not everybody saved their 4.1/4.2b3 SHSH or didnt get their device in time to do so. That is where this greenpoison update comes in.
