  • "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.

      You won't get 4.2.1 untethered without 4.1/4.2b3 SHSH either Yeow. At least not with this method.

      There is another jailbreak which does not require 4.2b3 blob to get untethered jailbreak at 4.2.1, not with this one

      We will see but I am safe atleast for 4.3 which is what I want.

      There are two new releases altogether .

      Aah, ok I get what you were saying now Yeow. You were adding in the new greenpoison to the equation

      So basically this is useless for anyone who just picked up an iPhone 4 and only have 4.2.1?

      From the way this story read they won't be releasing the new untethered if this works.

      Hmm 3G Touch has 4.1, 4.2.1 blobs but my iPad only have 4.2.1 and 4.2b3 so will I miss out on my iPad cause I dont have the 4.1 blobs? (Don't ever think I even saw 4.1 for the iPad ever come up)...

      So I have an iphone 4 with 4.1 installed and jb. When I go to cydia it says that is has SHSH for 4.1, 4.2.1 and 4.2b3 (although I've only ever had 4.1 installed on this iphone)... Is the new redsn0w updated so that I can use it, or are we still waiting? Is there any reason to update or is it worth waiting for 4.3?

      Forgive my ignorance, i used to pay a lot more attention to jb developments but i dont have much time lately.

      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.
      That's a "forever" tethered jailbreak. You can usually jailbreak a new firmware for an iPhone 4 the day after it's released.

      It isnt out yet supporting the 4.1 SHSH. There is a beta out that supports use of the 4.2b3 SHSH though.

      Pod2g notes that a small bug remains where the wifi icon doesn't show up. Once fixed they will package the untether for release.

      I have the 4.2b3 blobs but I haven't moved forward with that method because I heard it breaks Bluetooth. Can anyone corroborate this?

      So all SHSH questions aside.
      Is there any way to JB on 4.2.1 and preserve the baseband yet?
      as I am JB on 4.1 with a baseband of 01.59.00.
