  • 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.

      Of course, they have to save it for 4.3 ( to keep the hole open).

      We have every reason to believe 4.3 won't be out for a long while. There is no reason that they should wait. A growing number of new apps won't run on 4.1 and 4.2 will be the last firmware for second gen devices (this isn't self-serving, I have a 4th gen). They should definitely release it ASAP.

      What does this mean for Windows users? Will there be a jailbreak tool for 4.2.1 that can be run on Windows? As much as I hate it, it's all I have access to

      Yeah but it might take an extra day or two. I'm in the same situation.

      Probably tomorrow. They have one minor bug to work out, plus I think they still need to package it. Unless they're waiting until iPhone 5

      Has anyone ever held a jailbreak until a major release? Usually we wait for at LEAST a month.
