  • "Jailbreak Monte" Ported to iOS 4.1, 4.3 Is Next


    MuscleNerd announced last night that the he has successfully ported the Monte untether to use iOS 4.1 blobs. This means that there is no need to burn an exploit to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1, and that the new greenpois0n previewed by Chronic Dev might be held in reserve. It also resolves ongoing concerns about SHSH piracy that have created controversy in the jailbreak community.

    The "Jailbreak Monte" method is a way to recycle exploits by convincing the device that it's running a given firmware right up to the pwnage step, then switching to the newer firmware thereafter. Currently, you need to have an iOS 4.2b3 SHSH blob - which only people in the developer program legitimately have access to - in order to jailbreak 4.2.1 untethered using Monte. When the next version of redsn0w is released, you'll only need iOS 4.1 SHSH blobs, which redsn0w will fetch for you whether or not you'd backed yours up: Apple is still giving those to everyone from their servers. EDIT 01/23/11: Note: Apple is NOT actually giving out 4.1 blobs anymore.

    Encouragingly, MuscleNerd says that Monte is a lot more versatile than even he had though, noting that he "had seriously overcomplicated things before today." The team is currently working on porting Monte forward to 4.3, which would make "ultra-recycle" even more green than it is today.

      @barret752004 I agree it's pretty confusing. You can't jb right now because you don't have a 4.1 blob saved. Just be patient. There will be a new jailbreak sooner or later.

      If cydia shows your 4.1 shsh saved, you can untether the jailbreak on 4.2.1 without pirating the firmware itself (4.2b3 ipsw).

      If cydia does not show your 4.1 shsh or if you have never JB, this update to redsn0w does not affect you in any way.
      WAIT FOR GREENP0ISON!
      If you do not have a dev account an you obtain the 4.2b3 firmware then you have pirated it. The 4.2.1 Monte untethered jailbreak is ONLY possible with the beta firmware.

      OMG "Super Moderator" read the post: We're not talking about having possession of 4.2b3 FIRMWARE - we're talking about how Saurik automatically caches SHSH blobs of ALL possible FW versions, regardless of what version your on, starting with the version you first jailbroke with, and including all subsequent versions after that.

      For example, I have an iPhone 4 with 4.0.2. I jailbroke using JailbreakMe. I'm STILL on 4.0.2. In spite of this, when I go to Cydia, I can see Saurik has cached blobs for me of 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.2b3 and others.

      I broke my iphone and had to get it replaced last week. My new iPhone is 4.2.1 (out of the box) Will I be able to jailbreak? I miss MyWi, SBSettings, and Bluetooth Profile Selector.

      You can jailbreak tethered at the moment, which means upon each reboot u will have to boot it with a computer (hence tethered). This is why they are trying to figure out an untethered mode which will allow u to freely reboot the device without the use of a computer.

      So if u want it jail broken NOW. Just head over and grab redsn0w and it will work for you.

      Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Cydia's SHSH display been pretty f'd up since limera1n?

      This. And Cydia has been dead-on for SHSH files saved for me recently. I have several 4.2b3 files saved on iPhone 4s I have and do not have a Dev account.

      EVERYBODY: you don't have to be a Developer to have the 4.2b3 SHSH on file. You DO have to be a Developer to get legal access to the 4.2b3 IPSW / Firmware.

      FOR IP4, IPT4, & iPad: If you don't have 4.2b3 on file AND a copy of the 4.2b3 IPSW, you CANNOT get an UNTETHERED 4.2.1 jailbreak right now.

      That's it....no more confusion!

      We justa keep saving the exploit and never use it nor jailbreak since we had it (untethered). Hey. I have a secret I'll share but only when they stop making Friday the 13th Movies. Lol. Just poking fun. Great job devs cant wait to see the final product.

      Well actually in order to do the COMPLETE UNTETHERED JAILBREAK you must have the 4.2b3 firmware on your computer because Redsn0w will ask for it, if you dont have the firmware, no untethered JB what is so hard to figure out about that? And to have SHSH files for x firmware does not mean you need to ever have been on that firmware or be a developer. WTF is so confusing about all this?

      if I had 4.1shsh blobs I would just downgrade and been jailbroken untethered months ago. hate to sound rude, but those guys are going backwards.

      meanwhile we're waiting on 4.3, then what? might as well wait until 4.3.1

      To summarize, you will get untethered jailbreak at IOS 4.3 only if you have 4.1 shsh blob saved.
      If you don't have any shsh blob except 4.2.1 blob, you will only get untethered jailbreak at 4.2.1

      For now!

      Everything can change faster. They said a forever jailbreak exist for i4 with the shatter JB.

      But we will see it in the NeXT week.
