  • 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.


    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.

      Apparently not. While I'm 100% grateful to the modders who provide this free jailbreaking, no doubt this whole culture is ABSURDLY hard to follow. They zig when they say they're gonna zag, attention whores spring up left & right... if they are in fact waiting now for 4.3 (and just skipping 4.2 altogether despite their announcement to the contrary just a couple days ago) I could see why that would be a good idea. But jeebus, just come out with it already.

      I keep forgetting. If the groundhog sees his shadow does that mean we get the jailbreak earlier or later? ;D

      It is still news. All news doesn't mean it is out at that very moment.

      I'm not sure this true or false on the next few months for the iPhone, Any downloaded apps from iTunes store will have to reboot. Don't know if this 100% sure, well if it does all those jailbreaker app must be indefinite A untethered.
