  • "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.

      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.
      There are ways, but they aren't easy or recommended right now. Best to stay put on 4.1 for now.

      meanwhile we're waiting on 4.3, then what? might as well wait until 4.3.1
      I have to somewhat agree

      You did not jailbreak. 4.0.2 with jailbreakme. That only worked on 4.0.1 and earlier. Apple patched PDF exploit in 4.0.2

      By golly, you're right! I just checked and apparently I'm still on 4.0.1

      Wow - I am really overdue for an upgrade. I am unwilling to lose my unlock though, so I have to wait...

      Well when 4.2.1 is untethered dont upgrade and exploits won't get wasted on idiots who upgrade without thinking.

      Agree it's getting a little confusing , kind of like "if this is Tuesday it must be Belgium".

      I have a JB 4.1 iphone so no hurry on doing anything with that but I also have a 3.2 JB iPad that I would like to roll into a 4.x version but not sure what applies to what.

      If he had used Tiny Umbrella, he should have access to 4.2b3.

      PS - Where can I find JB Monte so I can update my pad? The last JB I did with it was Spirit about a year ago.

      He would have had to have saved it when Apple was still signing 4.2b3. No way to get them now. The redsnow beta with monte is on the dev team blog.

      Thanks x98car.

      I see there were reports of losing the GPS functionality. Has anyone that has used this method on their iPad experienced this?
