  • Cydia & iOS 4.2 Compatibility: Progress Report




    With all the talk about iOS 4.2 GM being released, many jailbreak users were beginning to fear a long delay for any 4.2 Jailbreak Tools, due to Cydia being incompatible with the latest, soon to be released, 4.2 Firmware.

    However, MuslceNerd has just tweeted a screenshot and states "Both @chpwn and @saurik have been burning the midnight oil prepping for updated version of Cydia http://is.gd/gJSa2". This should give some hope for users who were concerned about jailbrekaing iOS 4.2. It appears that it may be ready in time for the official release.

    Of course, no official updates or change notes have been release by Chpwn or Saurik, so all we can do is wait and enjoy this screenshot that teases a new dialog screen for choosing what type of user you are.

    I look forward to seeing the updates, and am excited to see how the UI has changed.

    OK so not really much of a progress report, but still a report nonetheless...

      My iPad has basically replaced my laptop EXCEPT FOR:
      cd rom
      Flash
      Email
      eBay
      Storing and printing pictures
      Some online classes

      My kids and I love it for the ease of gaming,and my wife loves it because it is compact, and does everything on one screen. No mouse, and built in keyboard!
      A 64 year old friend of mine who is scared to death of computers loves the iPad I gave him. "If the dang thing had a way to store things, this would rock."
      Being able to attach thumb drives or USB drives would be awesome too.

      Other than that, just a big iPhone you cannot make calls on except scype!

      I agree. It can never replace a laptop, it can't even compare. What's the point? I do like the Dell Streak. Wish it could have a memory of more than 32 GB. It would then replace my iPhone.

      hey everyone... I totally need some assistance. I haven't been on here in awhile. Can I unlock my iphone 3G with the 4.2 update, so I can use T-mobile. If not, when do you think that will be available? Thanks for all the help.

      The newest unlock should hopefully be available shortly after 4.2 is officially released. You'll just have to download the latest version of ultrasn0w. I'd advise staying on 4.1 just in case there's a baseband update from 5.14.02.

      The most important part of this cat and mouse game is patience, followed by speed and a touch of luck. NEVER upgrade to the newest software untill you see that it is ok. If you are the kind of person who has to have the newest software first, and am dependant on an unlock, worlds can collide. My daughter's 3G still has 3.1.3 on it and works like a charm!

      That's the only thing I don't like how long it take for it to reload after downloading the packages, but it's all good cos these people do it for nothing..

      I totally I agree with that once the new FW comes out I don't plan on updating right awy just waiting but I have also read that the unlock will be for both FW 4.1 and 4.2 4.2.1

      if someone can help with this problem, that would be awesome. Can backgrounder leave cydia open? Yes, but there is that reboot thing that HAS to happen to update the software. At least my iphone boots faster than my laptop
