  • 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.

      Thanks in advance.
      You will need to STAY at 4.1 if your running an iP4 with 1.59.00 baseband...

      Need not even worry about 4.2.1.. Turn off your automatic updates!!!

      The downloads are for 4.1 JB.

      I don't get why the Devs (all of them, iPhone/Chronic/Geo) release these videos saying its possible or been done yet don't release it or give release dates and then complain about be harassed. Stuff like this is just going to blow up their twitter accounts.

      Remember the 4.2.1 untethered we were promised "before Christmas?" How'd that work out? I appreciate all these guy's hard work (even though I don't JB and I'm on AT&T) but they really should just post info when they've released a new tool. Its better for them and for the jailbreakers.

      I say wait until the fifth generation iCar (to compete with Google's upcoming car. Yes they're really making one). It's really best for everyone.

      You'll be happy they did when you can jailbreak your iCar to allow driving on unapproved roads.

      And you'll be able to get the parts replaced by non-Apple mechanics.

      I would personally keep it right there for the moment. Only go to 4.2.1 when UNtethered is released.

      You would then need to upgrade to 4.2.1 using custom ipsw. Create a custom 4.2.1 ipsw via Pwnagetool and shift+restore to that only in iTunes.

      Soon to come...

      I will save my shsh blogs for my 2017 iCar so that I can use this jailbreak. I'll drive my car into my living room and plug in the gas tank into my iMac. I hope it doesn't require tethered jailbreak. Cause driving my car into my living room every-time it runs out of gas will be annoying.

      When the new GreenPois0n is released. You'll notice the iPhone in the video only has 4.2.1 SHSH.

      I think they should wait till verizon's iPhone comes out. If they release it earlier it probably means they have other tricks up their sleeves which I hope is the case.

      PS. why has apple not hired these guys to work for them and pay them a bunch of $$$$ they deserve it. MuscleNerd: I know u read this blog: tell us all... Have u been offered a job? If not apple is stupid.

      I know P0six reads this forum, he's a member here. Also, a new product will almost CERTAINLY have hardware revisions preventing a jailbreak. They should definitely not be waiting on a new product release.
