  • More Untethered Jailbreak Vulnerabilities Found by Pod2G


    @pod2g, recent iDevice hacker (not part of the Dev-Team), has recently shed some light on more vulnerabilities he has found that will allow for untethered jailbreaking. This brings us even closer to the untethered tools we've been waiting for, as now we are 100% sure that both teams have found working exploits.

    With this news, brings a more positive outlook on what we can see for jailbreaking iOS 4.3. Aside form the ASLR security, its looking like iOS 4.3's jailbreak tool, when it becomes available, could be untethered right from the start. Fingers crossed.

    Keep in mind that this is only vulnerabilities that have been found, and that there will still be some additional work required before they can be put to use by either team.

    Until then, things are looking very positive.

      Do you know anything? Why not just wait for 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 well then you might want to wait for 5.0 or 5.1 or 5.2

      There is still people on 3.0 !!! As a matter of fact my 3G is still 3.1.3 and my 3GS is 4.0 People need unlocks, or just like a certain firmware

      I wouldn't say false dates, they just want to release as best as they can.

      We've all missed deadlines before so give them a break they work there you know what's off.

      I just bought a brand-new iPad with 4.2.1. It's never been jailbroken before, therefore I have no blobs of any kind cached.

      This means I can't JB my new iPad, right?

      What we're waiting for here is the newest Greenpois0n or redsn0w or whatever which will allow us to jailbreak an iPad like mine, untethered, without ever having jailbroken that device before.

      One thing I never understood about this whole jailbreak thing is.... Why doesn't Jay Freeman just pay the dev team or another team or he himself do what ever it takes to get his store onto our phones. I mean think about how many people have brand new phones with 4.2.1 they got for x-mas or recently that they cant jailbreak. It just seems to me that if you have a business(Cydia store) you would try to get it to everyone possible.

      Can I just ask this for the rest of us? Do we need to be excited for a jailbreak of 4.2.1 or should we just hold our breaths till 4.3??

      I must agree. Many want to sound smart saying we should wait for next firmware but the pattern is still the same. I'd prefer to have it ASAP than wait and once you have yours jbroken you'll be better off. Once you got that taken care of, they'll work on next firmware JB but atleast your phone is already done. We appreciate what they do but we get very anxious waiting.

      It seems so on paper but the carrier will rather charge you the premium for let's say, kick you out but they won't confiscate your phone as far as I know, so it's kinda yours.
